so, jack is a local detective, and before he started working with the police force he was one of the most well-known superheroes in the city (though he and his partner gabe never had secret identities). he has retired now, but he and gabriel enjoy a quiet life - or as quiet as being a detective can be - together in the city. when he goes out for case work, he always stops by gabe’s bakery to buy danishes.
however, there’s been some strain on he and gabe’s marriage recently, and so jack has fallen into another vigilante persona to relieve stress and fight what he deems the biggest threat - the reaper, a terrorist and felon who jack thinks is behind the city’s crime spike.
Ellen Page (X-Men, Juno, Inception) will reportedly star in the live-action series, according to Deadline.
The series, based on the graphic novels from Gerard Way and Gabriel Ba, follow the estranged members of a dysfunctional family of superheroes. The six family members - Luther, Diego, Allison, Vanya, Klaus and Number Five – must work together to solve their father’s mysterious death, while coming apart at the seams due to their divergent personalities and abilities.
Page will play Vanya, who is described as “the black sheep of her dysfunctional family.” A “meek and insecure wallflower” who is struggling to find her place in the world, Vanya is the only one of the adopted children without superhero abilities.
