Paramount Picks Up <i>The Mighty</i>

Paramount Pictures has reportedly acquired the film rights to The Mighty, the DC Comics series by Peter J. Tomasi, Keith Champagne, Peter Snejbjerg and Chris Samnee.

Deadline notes that while DC properties are typically adapted by Warner Bros., the rights to the comic are owned by Tomasi and Champagne.

Debuting in February 2009, The Mighty centers on the relationship between the world's first and only superhero, Alpha One, and Lt. Gabriel Cole, the cop assigned by the government as his liaison. But when Alpha One reveals a terrible secret, it's up to Cole to stop the renegade superman from destroying the Earth.
