According to the outlet, The Batman co-writer, the Shazam! director, Seth Rogen, and all involved intend to keep the “offbeat” tone of the comics for Amazon adaptation. The Longline for Fear Agent reads as follows:
Interstellar invaders. Time travel. Clones of clones of clones, and lots of whiskey. Whether he’s battling the scourge of of space, going back in time to stop the alien invasion that changed earth forever, or winning his ex-wife back, there’s nothing that Heath Huston won’t do to try to right the wrongs and gets his family back. He is, after all, the last Fear Agent.
