Hit­ting the crime-rid­den streets of Lon­don in Stan Lee’s Lucky Man

SFX: The Sci-Fi and Fantasy Magazine - - Red Alert -

Char­ac­ter Wit­ness

“harry’s a com­pli­cated char­ac­ter. he’s a cop, but very flawed. he’s lost ev­ery­thing as a re­sult of his gam­bling. But he does have a strong moral com­pass. he be­lieves in the dif­fer­ence be­tween right and wrong, good and evil.”

For­tune and Glory

“he’s al­ways been very un­lucky, but af­ter a strange en­counter harry ends up with this bracelet which gives him the abil­ity to con­trol luck, which is ac­tu­ally what stan lee thought would be the best su­per­hero power to have. at first it’s amaz­ing be­cause he is able to use it for his own de­vices, but he soon re­alises that with the abil­ity to con­trol luck comes huge re­spon­si­bil­ity.”

Se­cret Ori­gins

“you find out why and how [the bracelet] has come into ex­is­tence. you can see cer­tainly why peo­ple are des­per­ate to have it and why it’s im­por­tant that it is with the right per­son. at times it is in the back­ground as the crime el­e­ment takes over, but it’s all con­nected to the bracelet.”

Life Of Crime

“it spans 10 weeks and i think peo­ple will be as in­trigued by the thriller el­e­ment. We have an un­der­world crime supremo try­ing to take over lon­don, and that really has got the hue of a su­per­hero story to it, but also the crime sto­ries are i think quite in­ter­est­ing.”

hard tar­get

“the cases are more or less grounded, but there’s al­ways the el­e­ment of the bracelet and how harry uses it to un­ravel the sto­ries. But quite of­ten the sto­ries will in­volve peo­ple who are aware of the bracelet. it’s like the Grail, peo­ple are des­per­ate to use it for their own evil deeds.”

Stan Lee’s Lucky Man airs on Sky 1 from early 2016.
