    It's probably a typo, but "The 22nd Phantom, the one we all know and love" is really the 21st Phantom. The 22nd Phantom would be the son who is in training. There seem to be other differences (such as no mention of his sister, "Heloise") but, perhaps, these seeming discrepencies will be dealt with in the series. Otherwise, this sounds like it could be a good series that is fairly faithful to the comic strip.Regarding the film, I understand this is intended to be a sequel of sorts to the 1996 movie – although ths one won't have Billy Zane as the star. In the 1996 film, they dealt with the father to son angle, so unless they have a new take on the idea, it sounds as if this film will be (at least in part) a redundant version of the earlier film.
