An all-new Mighty Mouse title is in the works with Dynamite Entertainment and licensors CBS Consumer Products. Originally created as a parody to Superman in 1942, Mighty Mouse grew to become a free-standing character of its own with multiple animated shows and movies.

"Mighty Mouse is as much a part of American pop culture as the two characters he is inspired by," says Nick Barrucci, Dynamite CEO and publisher. "The original comics and animation entertained generations of fans, and with the popularity of superhero movies, there couldn't be a better time for his return! I am thrilled that Dynamite will be able to bring this timeless hero to a whole new generation of fans."

Although best known for animated fare, Mighty Mouse has a long history in comic books. In the late 1940s and early 1950s, Timely Comics (the predecessor to Marvel) published Mighty Mouse stories as part of its Timely Comics, Terry-Toons Comics and Paul Terry Comics anthologies. Over the years, a The Adventures of Mighty Mouse title was published by various companies ranging from Dell Comics to Gold Key. In 1990, Marvel reunited with the character for a ten-issue series based on Ralph Bashki's Mighty Mouse: The New Adventures.

Dynamite gave no details about the creative team or release date of their Mighty Mouse title.
