Whose Heroes Reborn Is It Anyway?

So I woke up this morning to the Bleeding Cool headline that NBC are making a Heroes Reborn mini-series. Forgive me if I thought of this,

Before this.

Heroes

After all, Jeph Loeb was involved in both.

And it looks like I wasn't alone.

 

 

 

 

On that last point, Marvel haven't published a Heroes Reborn comic for a while, and anyway a TV version would be in a separate market and not protected by trademark law. But I do remember talking to one senior Marvel executive a few years ago who was rather annoyed that Heroes seemed to be be mining Marvel Comics for its plots and characters. But not so much that Jeph Loeb wasn't welcomed to Marvel Studios afterwards…

Sadly as a result of this, we won't be getting an ABC Heroes Reborn…
