I went to my local comic book shop for Batman Day and found out that the shop was sold to a new owner AND that he didn’t bother to opt in for the celebration of Batman’s anniversary. That’s OK, I want the new owner to succeed. I picked up these two fun books for a buck each, a favorite hobby of mine, and my wife found a Gamorean Guard Funko Pop that she’s wanted. I dig finding books from my childhood. I ended up hitting yard-sales and then spending the rest of Saturday watching Batman movies and cartoons. Oh, I found a $130+ free standing punching bag for $4.00… not too shabby. At least I could alway train to BE Batman, I guess 😉
So there I was, again, searching through random image on Google when I came up with the idea to do a post about the WORST attempts at live action Superhero shows ever. Well, I found several lists along with images and the world has enough negative posts about everything.
I decided to post a few images of, what I feel to be, the best executions of superhero(ish) characters to make it to the small screen. I won’t list (Green) Arrow, the Flash, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., or the bad-assness of Dare Devil, since they all go without saying that they are some of the best shows to date based on comic book material. So without further ado I bring you, in no particular order, my favorite heroes that can be found on television.
Before Reeve there was Reeves.
The Power of Isis
Rex Smith played Daredevil in the late 80’s. Recognise the suit?
Guy Williams as Zorro!
Super Spies rank right up there as well. Wild, Wild West.
Man From Atlantis from 1977
Tarzan was always a favorite show of mine in the early 1970’s.
Doctor Fate (Brent Stait) and Stargirl (Britt Irvin) Smallville Justice League episode
Beastmaster was an okay show.
Justin Hartleys Green Arrow and Michael Shanks Hawkman Smallville Justice League episode
Hayley Atwell in Agent Carter (2015)
Still a classic.
Tw of the best heroes ever, Mr. Tom Baker, the fourth Doctor and Liz Sladen as Sarah Jane Smith 🙂
The Monster Squad was another favorite. Supernatural Superheroes.
Yes. This is going to be a great show. Trust me.
I still love this show.
I don’t remember much about this show, except that it impressed me when I was in the sixth grade.
Campy, yes, but still a fun show to enjoy OR make fun of.
This fits the spirit of the superhero show.
Xena. Nuff Said.
Ultraman! The show responsible for my ultra geekness!
My first crush. ^_^
The Kato show… oh I mean the Green Hornet 😉
