Stan Lee Producing Gay Superhero Project

Variety is reporting that Showtime is developing a project from comic god Stan Lee that tracks the life of a gay superhero. The story is based on Peter Moore’s book ‘Hero‘.

To get a sneak peek at the storyline, here’s a synopsis of the book:

The protagonist is Thom Creed, a teen coming to terms with his sexual orientation. In an attempt to break away from his seemingly non-understanding father (an ex-hero with something to hide) and homophobic community, Thom runs away from home, only to find himself in the middle of a multi-hero rescue operation.

Using his ability to heal, he keeps an injured woman alive until the League superheroes arrive and impresses them enough to get an invitation to try out for a hero apprentice position. Thom is teamed with an old woman who can see into the future, a spiteful girl who unleashes her power through fire, a sickly boy who is able to inflict disease on anyone, and a demoted hero with insane speed.
