They're young, they're hot and they'll murder you without a second's hesitation.
Thanks to The Hunger Games and Divergent, dangerous children have gone from things to be feared to the epitome of modern-day protagonists— something the CW is currently cashing in on with the post-apocalyptic drama The 100.
Based on a young adult novel of the same name, the series follows a group of underage kids who grow increasingly violent since leaving the grasp of adult civilization. But unlike its blockbuster predecessors, the majority of violence on The 100 isn't spawned from a need for survival or a fight for justice, nor are those who commit it romanticized as heroes.
You'd think they'd killed somebody.
