ABC has announced it has given a go ahead Ben Karlin, David Miner, and Jeph Loeb to develop a pilot episode of Marvel’s Damage Control.

I’ve mentioned more than once during the Major Spoilers Podcast that a series looking at those who have to clean up after heroes would make a fascinating series, and it looks like someone at ABC agrees.

According to the series description, the Marvel cleaning crew specializes in dealing with the aftermath of the unique fallout from super hero conflicts. They are the ones who are in charge of returning lost ray guns to their rightful owners, help to reschedule a wedding venue after it has been vaporized in a super hero battle or even track down a missing prize African parrot that’s been turned to stone or goo. Sometimes the most important super heroes are the ones behind the scenes — and that’s who “Damage Control” will follow.

Right now it is only a pilot, which means it may never see the light of day, but if ABC/Marvel were smart, if it didn’t fit on its already full 2016 schedule, the network could easily make it an online series where it would more than likely have a much larger audience than a during a Thursday night half-hour comedy slot.

For those wondering what the heck Damage Control is about – the description above is pretty straight forward. Over the years, there have been four Damage Control mini-series, with the teams first appearance occuring in Marvel Comics Presents #19, back in May 1989. The series was created by the late Dwayne McDuffie, and Ernie Colon.
