The deal hinted at by author Perry Moore and Stan Lee at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con has finally been made clear as Variety reports that Moore’s novel Hero about a gay teen superhero is being developed by Showtime. Moore and Lee are executive producing, with Moore writing the script. The hour long project also sees CEO of Lee’s Pow! Entertainment, Gill Champion and Hunter Hill serving as executive producers.

As the novel is described by PRISM’s SDCC release, “Hero is the first in a series of fantasy novels by openly gay film producer and novelist Perry Moore. Hero tells the story of a teenage superhero, Thom Creed, who must deal with his ex-superhero father's disgrace, his own sexuality, and a murderer stalking the world's heroes.”
