In a pivotal scene, Copley's character takes his emotions out on a car window, and it looks like the window wins. 

The trailer debuted at this year's New York Comic Con. The series had a long path to fruition, initially having been in development for years at FX

Powers premieres on the PlayStation Network, available on Sony game consoles, in December.
