Jupiter's Legacy Teaser Promises Vengeance

Every parent wants to prepare their children to confront evil and lead the broken, the beaten, and the damned. It just so happens that the children of superheroes will literally have to.

As the “Legacy” portion of its title suggests, Jupiter’s Legacy is all about living up to the outsized expectations of one’s superhero parents. The comic series (which is Millar’s longest) was illustrated by Frank Quitely and began its run for Image Comics in 2013. It followed a group of aging superheroes known as the Union and the generational conflicts with their children who are uncomfortable at the prospect of living up to their parents’ legacy. Netflix’s synopsis for their adaptation reads:  

Jupiter’s Legacy is an epic superhero drama that spans decades and navigates the complex dynamics of family, power, and loyalty. After nearly a century of keeping mankind safe, the world’s first generation of superheroes must look to their children to continue the legacy. But tensions rise as the young superheroes, hungry to prove their worth, struggle to live up to their parents’ legendary public reputations — and exacting personal standards.”

The series will star Josh Duhamel as Sheldon Sampson, Leslie Bibb as Grace Sampson, Ben Daniels as Walton Sampson, Elena Kampouris as Chloe Sampson,  Andrew Horton as Brandon Sampson, Mike Wade as Fitz Small, and Matt Lante as George Hutchene.
