Stan Lee, co-creator of Spider-Man, X-Men, Iron Man, The Hulk, Daredevil and the Fantastic Four, is teaming up with Walt Disney Studios Home Ent. to introduce a new concept in original superheroes and the comic book format: TIME JUMPER, which will become the industry's most ambitious digital comic book series ever designed to release on multiple platforms.
In addition to the TIME JUMPER initiative, Disney announced an extension of Stan Lee's POW Ent. production deal that covers all forms of media from movies and television through to publishing, games, the Internet and mobile-Web.
POW! and Disney will develop the central arc of the story and mythology of TIME JUMPER. In tandem, Disney Interactive Media Group's Disney Online and Disney Publishing Worldwide will be working collaboratively to develop their own made-for-medium content using the mythology across Web, mobile and a host of publishing platforms, supplementing digital distribution.
TIME JUMPER is being written and developed to offer a dynamic opportunity for consumers to engage in a multi-dimensional narrative adapted specifically for various platforms, to maximize their experience and interaction with the characters and their universe trans-media. Consumers will have the accessibility to download single or multiple episodes onto a media platform of their choice anytime, anywhere, as well as purchase the comic book in print. The new digital comic book format combines the traditional print look and feel, including dialogue and thought bubbles, with today's cutting-edge multimedia elements, including edgy visuals, music, voices and a fast-paced storyboard, to take a classic genre into the next dimension.
Lee said, "Our TIME JUMPER is more than a typical superhero. He's a trend-setting breakthrough across all media; a hero for today's digital age and tomorrow's multiplatform entertainment.
