Fox broke some bads news to "Human Target" and "Locke and Key" fans this week, canceling this first show and passing on the latter. Along with the also-cancelled "Chicago Code," the programs left a pile of sad tweets in their wake.
On a more positive front, the "Powers" TV series still seems to be climbing its way toward reality, as Brian Michael Bendis teased Twitter about his casting tapes once again. This morning's rundown boasts that update, some Ninjak dismay from Kurt Busiek and more absolutely incredible Jim Lee artwork. Brace yourself and check it out after the jump.

@skottieyoung Fox cancels Chicago Code. The first few eps were strong but it did get too safe for too many eps. Lost the corruption edge. Sad to see it go
