Career[edit]

Joe Pokaski was a writer and Executive Story Editor on the NBC TV series Heroes from 2006 to 2009.[1]

Pokaski and Aron Coleite conducted a weekly interview on Comic Book Resources with Chris Ullrich, George Tramountanas and Emmett Furey, as part of the feature "Behind the Eclipse", in which they discussed the show's writing process, and occasionally revealed upcoming plot developments.[2] Pokaski also wrote twelve issues of the Heroes graphic novel.[3][4]

Pokaski is the writer of a number of comics for Marvel Comics, including the 2008 miniseries Secret Invasion: Inhumans[1] and the last three issues of Ultimate Fantastic Four, which was part of the "Ultimatum" storyline.[5]

Pokaski served as showrunner and executive producer alongside Misha Green on Underground, which ran for two seasons on WGN America from 2016 to 2017.

In 2016, Pokaski signed on to Marvel's Cloak & Dagger as showrunner and executive producer.[6][7][8] Pokaski noted his script had "sat in a drawer for five years", before Freeform executive Karey Burke found it and "took a chance on it".[9] The series received a straight-to-series order for Freeform and Marvel Television. At San Diego Comic-Con International 2018, it was announced that the show was renewed for a second season.
