Stan Lee revealed to Jupiter's Heritage maker Imprint Millar to quit composing for Marvel

 Stan Lee revealed to Jupiter's Heritage maker Imprint Millar to quit composing for Marvel 

Composing Wonder and DC funnies was a "preparation work out" for Jupiter's Inheritance, a hero adventure currently gushing on Netflix. 

Composing the greatest characters in funnies might be a blessing from heaven, yet even Wonder symbol Stan Lee didn't suggest staying for eternity. Truth be told, he prompted Jupiter's Heritage maker Imprint Millar to strike out his own. A few funnies and one multimillion-dollar manage Netflix later, the Jupiter's Heritage television arrangement is here to challenge Wonder's onscreen experiences. 

In view of a comic by Millar and craftsman Honest Quitely, Jupiter's Heritage is an eight-section arrangement spilling on Netflix from tomorrow, Friday, May 7. It highlights superheroes like the Idealistic, Woman Freedom and Skyfox who give a character-driven twist on original legends like Superman, Miracle Lady and Batman.

Jupiter's Legacy arrives in a crowded market. We've got the Marvel Cinematic Universe movies and TV series, the DCEU and Arrowverse, Venom, The Boys, Watchmen, Invincible, Project Powers and Thunder Force... the list of superpowered series and sequels goes on. Millar thought about that crowded market even when he conceived the original comic. "I'd just done Marvel's biggest books," he recalls, "I'd done Kick-Ass, and if I was going to do another superhero story it had to be the greatest superhero story of all time."

"I was aware that I was never going to own Marvel and DC stuff," Millar told me in a Zoom call from his home in Scotland to discuss the new series. From the early days of comics, when writers and artists weren't even credited, to today, when their chapters spawn multibillion-dollar media franchises, "work for hire" has always been a thorny subject. Most recently, writer Ed Brubaker lamented that he'd seen no remuneration for creating Marvel's Winter Soldier even after the character headlined a Disney Plus TV series.

Millar worked on The Ultimates and Civil War comics, both of which explicitly laid foundations of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but he feels he got something out of the deal. "After writing Marvel's biggest books, I had an audience I could siphon off," he notes -- and the success of his own creations like Kick-Ass and Kingsman led to a £25 million ($31 million) sale of his Millarworld production company to Netflix in 2017.
