Over the past few years, Rob Liefeld has seen an explosion of success with the popularization of Deadpool, who is inarguably his best-known creation. However, that’s not to say Deadpool was his only creation. Like many comic book artists and creatives, there are more names attached to his name than one can count (over 150).

Now, Studio 8 has acquired one of his other creations, Prophet. Studio 8 plans to build a franchise around title character, John Prophet, a DNA enhanced super-soldier placed into a cryogenic freeze for a future mission only to awaken in the wrong time (current time) searching for a mission that does not exist. Pitched as very much the anti-Captain America across the board. He’s a ruthless berserker that must find his humanity.

Prophet exploded out of the pages of another Liefeld best seller, Youngblood, catching fire with fans, John Prophet was awarded his own popular showcase, launching a series of his own in 1993. Prophet achieved critical acclaim as well as crossing over for a team-up with Liefeld’s popular Marvel creation, Cable in a definitive storyline.

John Hyde and Terissa Kelton will also be involved in the project. John Graham & Guy Danella are overseeing for Studio 8.
