Are you prepared for even far more DC Comics titles to strike your display? Of course you are.

Madame X series is in progress at HBO Max with Angela Robinson (How to Get Away with Murder, Real Blood) serving as government producer and writer. J.J. Abrams will executive produce the 1-hour drama as a result of his Negative Robotic banner in affiliation with Warner Bros. Television. Ben Stephenson will also executive develop with Rachel Rusch Rich serving as co-govt producer.

HBO Max declined to remark.

The DC Comics character Madame Xanadu is a mystic who very first appeared in 1978’s Doorway to Nightmare #1. The character draws inspiration from Arthurian sorceresses. Her full name was at the time Nimue Inwudu and she is the youngest sister of Morgaine Le Fay and Vivienne, the Lady of the Lake.

She has tangled with the likes of Merlin, Marie Antoinette and Dying, in the comics and normally crosses path with the Justice League Dim. In the New 52 continuity, Madame Xanadu arrives into currently being soon after Barry Allen unintentionally tampers with the timestream and merges the continuities of the Vertigo, WildStorm and DC Universes. She can levitate, teleport and possesses a supernatural sensitivity to mystic happenings. This also gives her the ability to interact with demons and spirits. In some iterations, the character is immortal and blind.

The character has formerly appeared in the animated hit series Youthful Justice in the Season 1 episode “Denial,” while her portrayal does not mirror her comics counterpart. Jeryl Prescott portrayed the character in the limited-lived DC Universe series Swamp Thing.

Madame X joins a escalating record of DC sequence established for HBO Max like James Gunn’s Peacemaker, Greg Berlanti’s Environmentally friendly Lantern sequence and Matt Reeves’ Gotham P.D.-concentrated spinoff of The Batman.
