JUPITER'S LEGACY: Full Cast Of Netflix's Adaptation Of Mark Miller's Comic Book Series Revealed

Netflix has officially unveiled the full cast of Jupiter's Legacy, and this is shaping up to be a very impressive TV series indeed given the level of talent involved. Find out more after the jump...

Last week, rumours started swirling that Josh Duhamel and Leslie Bibb had been cast in Jupiter's Legacy, Netflix's planned live-action adaptation of Mark Millar and Frank Quitely's Image Comics "Millarworld" series. Now, the online streaming service has revealed the entire cast along with character breakdowns.

JOSH DUHAMEL is Sheldon Sampson. Sheldon Sampson (The Utopian) is the storied leader of the superhero team The Union. But times have changed, and he doesn’t understand the world we live in anymore. Or his own family.
 
BEN DANIELS is Walter Sampson. Walter Sampson (Brain-Wave) is Sheldon’s older brother. A man of vast intellect and cunning who, unlike Sheldon, isn’t afraid to get his hands dirty. Or bloody.
 
LESLIE BIBB is Grace Sampson. Grace Sampson (Lady Liberty) is Sheldon’s wife and one of the most powerful heroes on the planet. She doesn’t always agree with Sheldon, but strives to balance his ideals with the reality of the modern, often violent, world they live in.
 
ELENA KAMPOURIS is Chloe Sampson. Chloe Sampson is Grace and Sheldon’s daughter. Rejecting everything her parents stand for, Chloe has forged her own hedonistic path far away from them. A path that threatens to go against everything her parents have sworn to protect.
 
ANDREW HORTON is Brandon Sampson. Brandon Sampson is Grace and Sheldon’s son. In training to assume the mantle of The Utopian and become the new leader of The Union, he struggles to live up to his father’s mythic legend.
 
MIKE WADE is Fitz SmallFitz Small (The Flare) is the heart and soul of The Union. Despite suffering injuries that ended his career as a superhero, he continues to be one of the most valued members of the team. And is often the only thing holding them together in the face of an increasingly hostile world.
 
MATT LANTER is George Hutchence. George Hutchence (Skyfox) was Sheldon Sampson's closest friend and ally before turning against him and the rest of his teammates in The Union. Now considered the greatest supervillain in the world, George plots his revenge on the teammates he believes betrayed him.

Originally released in 2013, Jupiter's Legacy revolved around the first generation of superheroes and their kids, all of whom just so happen to be spoiled brats and celebrities in the vein of reality television stars like the Kardashians (they all have superpowers, of course). They are forced to step up to stop one of those original heroes from taking over the world.

It's a series with a lot of 
potential, and Millar has penned two prequels and a sequel, so there are a lot of places this show could ultimately go. Are you guys excited for Jupiter's Legacy? Share your thoughts in the comments section below.
