    The Walt Disney Co. has reupped its first look pact with POW Entertainment, the production shingle run by comicbook vet Stan Lee.
    Two-year deal covers movies, TV, publishing, games, online and mobile entertainment.

    Lee co-created the Spider-Man, X-Men, Iron Man, Hulk, Daredevil and Fantastic Four characters while at Marvel Comics.

    As part of the pact, Mouse has greenlit "Time Jumper," a digital comicbook series that Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment will produce and distribute across multiple platforms.

    Project revolves around the character of Terry Dixon, an agent of the secret government org HUNT (Heroes United, Noble and True), who has a cell phone called the Articulus that's also a time machine. When his brother is lost in time, Terry must try to find him before an a criminal cartel does.

    Disney Interactive Media Group's Disney Online and Disney Publishing Worldwide will also develop their own content based on the property that consumers will be able to download as single or multiple episodes. A comicbook will also be published.

    "Time Jumpers" is the latest project for Lee at Disney, who has also set up three other pics, including "Nick Ratchet," to be helmed by Richard LaGravenese; "Blaze" and "Tigress."

    "Time Jumper" sounds terrible.

    why cant Disney just stick with Jerry B. and make movies that are actually GOOD?

        This continues Disney's long tradition of picking up on hot trends in a useless context and just barely too late to have any meaning.

        Stan Lee's previous creations, yes. His new ones, no. The guy's been pitching these digital comic books for about ten years and they all sound stupid. It's a losing format and, let's be honest, it was the work of later writers who made his legendary characters what they are now. I dare you to read a Stan Lee original comic and not find it "cute" at best.

        And I have to mention: Jerry B. is the antithesis of good movie making.
