Millar Moves JUPITER'S LEGACY Adaptation Forward
Imagine being the children of the world’s greatest superheroes. They’re not as brave or beloved as their parents, seeking fame and fortune instead of the altruism of the old guard and more interested in sponsorship deals and being photographed in the right places than rescuing cats from trees. But as the old heroes die and stocks slide and the environment crumbles, the world looks for answers and these arrogant, spoiled twenty-somethings decide to take matters into their own hands. The problem is, just because you can fly doesn’t mean you can balance the budget. Just because you have heat-vision doesn’t mean you know how to create jobs. America tumbles and the heroes are the problem. Will the villains come back and save us from the superheroes?
