Valiant’s Dr. Mirage Comic Adaptation In The Works At The CW

An adaptation of Dr. Mirage is currently in development at The CW. Created by Bob Layton and Bernard Chang, and published by Valiant Comics, the character debuted in 1993. Hwen Fong served as the original incarnation of the ghost-like superhero. In 2012, however, the character was retconned as female, retaining a similar origin story but embued with vastly different powers. The latter will serve as the basis of the show.

The CW is no stranger to comic book adaptations. It’s currently home to the Arrowverse, which will soon air its third annual crossover and expand to include a Batwoman series. The network is also responsible for bringing to life such graphic novel properties as iZombie and Black Lightning – not to mention the Archie Comics-inspired Riverdale. It has even delved into more animated fare, including Vixen, Freedom Fighters: The Rayand Constantine: City of Demons.

According to Deadline, The CW is adding to that extensive list with an adaptation of Dr. Mirage. With Reign co-creator Laurie McCarthy overseeing the script, Dr. Mirage will not connect to any of the other CW shows. An adaptation of the graphic novel was attempted before, by Gary Dauberman (Annabelle). Although McCarthy, who will also serve as executive producer alongside Dan Mintz, will work from the previous script, Dauberman will no longer be involved.
