Aspen continued to study marine biology, graduating as a marine biologist. Eventually, she was invited to participate in a deep underwater research station called Deep Marine Discovery (DMD). The primary goal of the DMD was to study a strange alien ship that seemed to have a symbiotic relationship with the surrounding water. Aspen also learns that the DMD was holding a strange alien man named Killian, who had voluntarily surrendered himself. However Aspen did not have much time to study him, as the DMD was suddenly torpedoed by mistake. Killian freed himself, and attempted to abduct Aspen. However, a strange figure intervened and saved Aspen.

Fathom and Soulfire — two of late comic book creator Michael Turner’s most popular Aspen Comics creations — are set to receive animated adaptations that will kick off a new cinematic universe.

Per The Hollywood Reporter, Mythos Studios — the year-old production company helmed by Marvel Studios founding chairman David Maisel and Scooter Braun — has dished on plans to kick off its “TurnerVerse” with animated features based on Fathom and Soulfire. Both films are currently and actively being developed by Kevin Adams and Joe Ksander, directors of Netflix’s Next Gen.

Mythos’ Fathom is being written by Kristin Gore, daughter of former United States Vice President Al Gore and former writer on Futurama and Saturday Night Live. Fathom is Michael Turner’s signature creation. Its first issue was published by Image Comics in 1998. In 2003, the series began being published by Aspen Comics, which Turner founded that year. Fathom revolves around Aspen Matthews, a marine biologist who learns she is actually part of an advanced underwater species called the Blue, which has the power to control water.

Meanwhile, the screenplay for Mythos’ Soulfire is being penned by Bo Yeon Kim and Erika Lippoldt (Star Trek: Discovery, Reign). Also created by Turner, Soulfire made its debut within the pages of Wizard magazine in 2003, with Aspen publishing the title from then on out. Soulfire follows Malikai, an orphan who turns out to be the link to a forgotten age of music. Joined by a winged goddess named Grace, Malikai battles the dark lord of technology in an effort to return magic to the world.

Following Turner’s death in 2008, both Fathom and Soulfire have lived on, with various other creators taking the reins over the years. Now, it appears their next stop is the world of cinema.

“When David and I launched Mythos, we knew we had something really special in both our shared overall vision and the IP we wanted to bring to life,” said Braun. “We are thrilled to have best-in-class creatives and executives to help make these stories a reality.”

Mythos was founded by Maisel and Braun early last year. It was at this point that the company acquired a 50 percent stake in Aspen Comics and first revealed its plans to adapt Fathom and Soulfire for the big screen. Only now, however, have additional details been revealed.
