Video has The Boys and Invincible, Disney+ has WandaVision and The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, and now Netflix has Jupiter’s Legacy. The latest installment of the Millarworld universe, Jupiter’s Legacy tells the story of the world’s first superheroes in the 1930s and their superpowered spawn in the present day.

Beyond Jupiter’s Legacy, Mark Millar wrote Wanted, Kick-Ass, and Kingsman, and he wrote the comics that inspired Captain America: Civil War and Logan. In other words, this guy gets superheroes, and it will be worth keeping an eye out for the latest show based on one of his creations coming to Netflix later this week.
