Based on Rob Liefeld’s 1992 comic book "Prophet" introduced in the Youngblood Image Comics series in 1992 before his own series began in 1993. John Prophet could be described as the anti-Captain America. He’s a DNA enhanced super soldier from the WWII era who awakens in our time after being put in cryogenic freeze for a future mission. Unfortunately, he was not supposed to wake up until years down the road, making Prophet a fish out of water, spending his time in search of a mission that does not exist. In 2012, the Prophet comics were relaunched with John Prophet existing in the far future, though the movie will likely focus on the same origin story as in the 90’s version of the comics.
