Netflix emerged victorious in a bidding war for “Failsafe,” a Vault Comics title that will be penned by Black Panther co-writer Joe Robert Cole as a potential starring and producing vehicle for Michael B. Jordan.

The story follows John Ravane, a legendary insurgent hunter who thought he had executed the last nanotech-enhanced super soldier, in a personal battle that included the kidnap of his daughter. A decade later, it becomes clear that sleeper agents scattered around the country are activating, in an attempt to take over New York, and the government leader who pressed him into duty last time has been exposed as corrupt.

Jordan and Alana Mayo will produce through their Outlier Society Productions banner along with Vault Comics’ F.J. Desanto, who also co-writes the comic with Todd Farmer.
