Streaming service HBO Max has ordered an eight-episode live-action TV series starring John Cena as the "Peacemaker", a vigilante character that debuted in Charlton Comics "Fightin' 5" #40 (November 1966), created by writer Joe Gill and illustrator Pat Boyette:
"Using an array of non-lethal weapons, Smith also founds the 'Pax Institute', confronting both dictators and warlords.
"Smith later learns that his warped 'peace-through-violence' efforts were
the result of a serious mental illness brought on by the shame of having
'Third Reich' commandant for a father. He believes his dead father's spirit
haunts him, criticizing his every move, even as he tries
to live down his past.
"Becoming a degenerate vigilante, Smith believes that ghosts collect inside his helmet, watching his every move..."
