The agreement gives Platinum, headed by chairman Scott Mitchell Rosenberg, the largest independently controlled catalog of characters, puts it in a position to challenge market leaders Marvel Comics and DC Comics, and gives it development deals with every major Hollywood studio. Top Cow projects already in development include "Wanted" at Universal Pictures, "Inferno" at Warner Bros. Pictures, "Rising Stars" at MGM and "Fathom" at 20th Century Fox.
