EW.com senior editor Marc Bernardin and writing partner Adam Freeman get provocative with Genius, a new comic-book series about Destiny, a scarily driven woman who unites L.A.’s gangs against the police. Bernardin says the antiheroine was inspired by Alexander the Great. ”He was 22 years old and conquering Asia. Who gets to do that anymore?”
