Superhero Satires Are Expendable

Intrepid Pictures has acquired film rights to the 2006 superhero satire graphic novel “The Expendable One” says The Hollywood Reporter.

Shane Kuhn and Brendan Cowles (“Twitch,” “Drive-Thru”) will adapt the feature, which centers on a typical suburban guy who accidentally injects himself with a serum that allows his body to heal from any injury.

He tries to help some locals with the aid of a police radio, but when the CIA recruits him to find a serial killer, he finds he is in over his head.
