The project is being executive produced by Lee and the president and CEO of his Pow! Entertainment banner, Gill Champion.

The story, which focuses on an up-and-coming superhero who struggles to hide his secret identities, is based on the book “Hero” by Perry Moore.

Moore is writing the script and also executive producing along with Hunter Hill.
