Hyperion - Netflix

Set on the eve of Armageddon with the entire galaxy at war, Hyperion is the story of seven pilgrims who set forth on a voyage to seek the answers to the unsolved riddles of their lives. Each carries a desperate hope and a terrible secret -- while one may hold the fate of humanity in his hands. Imagine if Cloud Atlas was written by Keats and then edited by Jack Vance and you've got a pretty good idea what Hyperion is about.

Hyperion - Hyperion (comics) - Netflix

Hyperion is the name of a number of fictional characters appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics. The original Hyperion made his debut in The Avengers #69 (Oct. 1969), created by writer Roy Thomas and artist Sal Buscema. Subsequently, Marvel has introduced various other versions of Hyperion, each originating in a different dimension of the Marvel Multiverse, with seven distinct versions of the character to date: three supervillains belonging to the team Squadron Sinister, another villain with greater power levels than all of the others, two heroes from alternate universes, and a zombified clone. The first Hyperion, Zhib-Ran, was a member of Squadron Sinister, gathered by the cosmic Grandmaster to fight against a team of Avengers gathered by the time travelling Kang. The group later returned to fight the Defenders with the alien Nebulon granting them additional super powers. The original Hyperion later learns that he's a duplicate version of Hyperion of Earth-712 created by the Grandmaster. For a while he replaced the Earth-712 version, but ultimately dies fighting against the Earth-712 Hyperion. A different Hyperion later appears with the latest Squadron Sinister but is defeated by the Thunderbolts. Six years after the creation of the Squadron Sinister. Marvel created a heroic version of the team, the Squadron Supreme from the alternate dimension designated Earth-712. In this version Hyperion (Mark Milton) is a founding member of the Squadron Supreme, with the purpose of protecting the citizens of the United States. The Squadron Supreme came to the main Marvel earth (Earth-616) to fight the Squadron Sinister revealing their existence to members of the Avengers. The Squadron later takes control of the United States, believing they could keep everyone safer by taking control of the nation. The desire for peace and control leads several members of the Squadron to brainwash several super villains and others who oppose their rule that becomes more and more totalitarian in nature. After a battle that costs Nighthawk his life, Hyperion realizes the errors of their approach and relinquishes control of the country. When the Earth-712 universe is destroyed by the Nth Man the Squadron Supreme ends up stranded in the Earth-616 universe. In 2003 Marvel Comics launched Supreme Power, a new take on the Squadron Supreme universe, designated Earth-31916, where Hyperion is an alien baby sent to earth from a dying planet. The origin mirrors that of Superman, but Hyperion is found and raised by the United States Government to be a super powered operative. He later turns on the government and helps establish Earth-31916's first super hero team. It appears as though this version of Hyperion was killed during Marvel's 2015 Secret Wars storyline. Other versions of Hyperion have been seen over the years, including the vastly powerful King Hyperion from an alternate universe, a Zombie version that shows up on Earth-616, an alternate reality Hyperion that first joined the Avengers and later became a member of the Earth-616 version of the Squadron Supreme and Baron Hyperion that led a portion of Battleworld during Secret Wars, fighting against several other versions of the Squadron Supreme/Squadron Sinister.
