The 12-issue epic centres around the offspring of superheroes who gained their powers when they discovered a mysterious island in the 1920s.

The youths have squandered their inheritance, failing to live up to the example set by their parents.

"We have the last remains of these old-school heroes and their mainly vacuous children living in LA, a massive disappointment to the first generation of super-people and just lost, no real direction in their lives beyond advertising gigs and opening night clubs," said Millar.

"This is literally where we find everyone and then we go into the future, taking these guys on a journey like we've never seen in comics before."

The writer claimed that all his previous work has been a prologue to this series, which he envisions as an epic on the scale of Lord of the Rings and Star Wars.

Jupiter's Children, which was originally intended to debut in September 2012, is currently scheduled for release in spring 2013.
