With Disney and Netflix calling it quits, Netflix needs to look to others to get their super powered fix. And taking a step towards that, Netflix has ordered a 10-part web series based on Dennis Liu’s celebrated comic book, Raising Dion.

The web series has a unique concept, it tells the story of a single mother who is bringing up Dion, her son who has telekinetic powers. Parents and relatives do play a great role in the backstories of a superhero. Spider Man wouldn’t be so empathic without his uncle’s death. Bat Man wouldn’t be so dark and edgy without the senseless murder of his parents in the backroads of Gotham, so on and so forth.
