Marvel Damage Control Sitcom is Coming to ABC (Really)

|

Damage_ControlWe have Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., Agent Carter, the Netflix shows, a rumored Mockingbird spinoff…and now ABC has ordered a pilot for a Marvel half-hour sitcom based on Damage Control.

It’s an easy concept to adapt to a network comedy, and The Wrap’s description seems to match the comic pretty well:

“Specializing in dealing with the aftermath of the unique fallout from super hero conflicts, they’re the ones who are in charge of returning lost ray guns to their rightful owners, help to
reschedule a wedding venue after it has been vaporized in a super hero battle, or even track down a missing prize African parrot that’s been turned to stone or goo.”

The comic debuted in 1988 and has had about four limited series in its history. The most recent one was in 2008 following the destructive events of World War Hulk.
