Disney Planning One More Marvel Series

Disney president and chief executive offer Bob Iger told The Wall Street Journal that three Marvel properties are being adapted for the small screen:
WSJ: In the past year-plus you've made two splashy acquisitions: Marvel and Playdom. How are the integrations of those two companies progressing?

Mr. Iger: [With Marvel] we've taken back distribution, or bought back distribution from [Viacom Inc.'s] Paramount, for some critical franchises. Notably, "Iron Man 3" will be distributed by us, and "Avengers." We're developing three live-action series for ABC and ABC Family. You can buy Marvel products at Disney stores. And we're working on Marvel games.
As was previously reported, a new live-action series based on The Incredible Hulk is in development for ABC while a "Cloak and Dagger" series is said to be headed for ABC Family. What do you think the third series should be?
