‘The Antagonists’ Comic Book Series Being Adapted For TV – Deadline


Godhood Comics TV Development Deal For The Antagonists

EXCLUSIVE: LA outfit Braham Entertainment has acquired TV adaptation rights to Godhood Comics’ new series The Antagonists. Recently created by Tyler F. Martin, the comics follow married supervillains Desructus and Ultima as they settle into retirement after successfully taking over the world. Wanted and pursued by global governments, the couple struggles to keep their worst impulses in check while balancing married life, parental responsibilities, being Black in America, and hiding their past and former identities from their superpowered children. Braham Entertainment is headed by producer and filmmaker Noel Braham, who was recently nominated for two Daytime Emmy awards for his short Watchtower. “We are extremely excited about this new partnership and for the development of this dynamic franchise. Being that Tyler and I hail from the same hometown (Atlanta), this is definitely a full circle moment. The Antagonists provides a fresh and innovative perspective into topical issues and characters that aren’t typically represented in mainstream Hollywood, and we look forward to working with Godhood Comics to bring it to television screens worldwide”
said Noel Braham. Tyler F. Martin added: “This was a bittersweet project for my team and I, with messages, narratives and concepts that spark a unique dialogue. What is a villain? And more importantly, what makes one? Myself along with Felipe Dunbar, the co-creator, wanted to ensure that we had an authentic representation of the African American family, despite their shortcomings. The stories of the underdog, the little guy and those of us who feel unseen and unheard, The Antagonists is our calling card.”
