Neal Baer & Conde Nast Sell Drama To The CW Inspired By ‘The Avenger’ Pulp Series

A new take on the Street & Smith pulp series The Avenger is in the works at the CW with Conde Nast Entertainment, which owns Street & Smith, and Neal Baer. The untitled drama project, from CBS Studios where Baer is under an overall deal, is described as an updated Biopunk version of The Avenger. Written by Deric Hughes and Benjamin Raab (Warehouse 13), it tells the story of Alice Benson, a young woman who, in the wake of her parents’ murder, discovers she possesses a super power as a result of genetic bio-hacking which allows her to transform her appearance at will. Alice will use her face-altering talents to investigate the mystery of her parents’ deaths and uncover the origins of her strange ability. The original 1939 Street & Smith magazine series centered on Richard Henson who was revenging the killing of his daughter Alice and his wife.
