ABC Developing Series Based on HUMANITAS Winner Dwayne McDuffie's 'Damage Control'

ABC has put into development, a TV series based on the Marvel comic "Damage Control," which was created by the late Dwayne McDuffie and Ernie Colón.Damage, and follows a fictional construction company called Damage Control, which specializes in repairing the property damage caused by conflicts between superheroes and supervillains - a cool concept!

According to the Marvel wiki... the company worked with the Avengers when converting the old Avenger’s Mansion into a park after it was all but demolished by an attack from the Masters of Evil; and they worked with the Fantastic Four and S.H.I.E.L.D. engineers in rebuilding the destroyed Baxter Building into Four Freedoms Plaza. Not only do they work for the superhuman community, but Damage Control also works with government, private companies such as Tony Stark/Ironman's Stark Enterprises, and they even work with individuals on a case by case basis. One of their smaller clients is that of Josie’s Bar,, which exists in Daredevil's universe.

Damage control uses state of the art technology, so that they can finish repairs and reconstructions in record time, and have virtually zero competition. In order to pay for their services, individuals and private companies go through their “super hero insurance” or Extraordinary Activity Assurance. However, if one isn’t covered, they can always apply for funds from the Federal Disaster Area Stipend from New York City to pay for Damage Control's assistance.

The original comic was published in 1989 in a serialized story published in the anthology comic Marvel Comics Presents #19.
