The story centers on Kevin Matchstick, an alienated young man who discovers he has superhuman abilities, gains a magic baseball bat and defeats the nefarious plans of a being called the Umbra Sprite.
"It has always been a favorite book of mine," Levin told Variety. "It's one of the great untapped comic books from the '80s renaissance that also spawned 'Watchmen' and 'Batman: Dark Knight.'
Levin will finance development and production of Mage. He is producing with Andrew Cosby.
