'Powers' photo: Michelle Forbes as red hot Retro Girl

Posted on

Michelle Forbes

This sure isn’t the Michelle Forbes you remember from AMC’s drippy drama The Killing. This is the 49-year-old Forbes (Star Trek: TNG, Battlestar Galactica) decked out in red leather and ready for action in her role as fan-favorite Retro Girl in PlayStation’s first original scripted series Powers.

Retro Girl has a “cool, hard exterior with a fire right below the surface. Retro Girl is the undisputed super star of the Powers community. An icon of justice, selflessness, and business acumen. Her willingness to put herself at risk for the good of others is matched only by her ability to manage her globe-spanning personal brand.”

Based on a comic book series, Powers poses the question: What if there were people with extraordinary abilities, yet the life stayed pretty much the same — no super heroes, just gifted portion of the population using what they have to get ahead in life, and occasionally killing people (and being killed) in the process. Powers follows two homicide cops (Sharlto Copley and Susan Heyward) assigned to handle such cases.

For more, here five more new exclusive images from the upcoming series— including Eddie Izzard as Wolfe.

Here’s full shot of Forbes:
