The very 1st graphic I used for my 1st website circa 1996
This place looks awesome. This would be like a “Star Wars Store” having a grand opening. I would love to visit Japan for a number of reasons, this is now another one. I’ve been an Ultraman fan for as long as I can recall, ever since it was imported to the U.S. back in the early 70’s. As a matter of fact, watching Ultraman is among some of my earliest memory. For some time, I’ve owned the first season and I love to watch it from time to time. Check out my collection of Ultraman Family Posters, if you have a few minutes.
Back in the early 80’s, 1981-ish, I had a “friend”. Well I thought he was a friend. I was more his friend than he was mine. That is either here nor there. He let me borrow this awesome poster set while he borrowed a prized comic book of mine. It was a Captain America that I had picked up from 7-11 the week before. It was drawn by one of my favorite artists, John Byrne. Many times I attempted to make contact with this kid, but he had moved away. He stayed in contact with a few others I knew but blew me off.
In hindsight, I got the better part of the deal, obviously. Heck, I replaced that copy of Captain America vol. 1 #254. Couple that with what I am about to share, well I think I came out on top. I don’t know a lot about the set but it features the Ultraman Family up to that point in time. It also shows a ton of the monsters (kaiju) that they fought.
With no further ado, I present to you the ultimate Henshin Heroes (no offense, Kamen Riders), Tsuburya’s very own…
ULTRAMAN, err men, errrrr people.

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.
I don’t remember much about this show, except that it impressed me when I was in the sixth grade.
Ultraman! The show responsible for my ultra geekness!
Rex Smith played Daredevil in the late 80’s. Recognise the suit?
Super Spies rank right up there as well. Wild, Wild West.
This fits the spirit of the superhero show.
I still love this show.
The Kato show… oh I mean the Green Hornet 😉
Guy Williams as Zorro!
Campy, yes, but still a fun show to enjoy OR make fun of.
Hayley Atwell in Agent Carter (2015)
Before Reeve there was Reeves.
Justin Hartleys Green Arrow and Michael Shanks Hawkman Smallville Justice League episode
Xena. Nuff Said.
Doctor Fate (Brent Stait) and Stargirl (Britt Irvin) Smallville Justice League episode
Tarzan was always a favorite show of mine in the early 1970’s.
The Power of Isis
Man From Atlantis from 1977
Tw of the best heroes ever, Mr. Tom Baker, the fourth Doctor and Liz Sladen as Sarah Jane Smith 🙂
My first crush. ^_^
Beastmaster was an okay show.
Still a classic.
Yes. This is going to be a great show. Trust me.
The Monster Squad was another favorite. Supernatural Superheroes.
So here I am 45, as of the 3rd of May 2015, and I am just on the cusp of becoming gainfully employed again. It’s been a while since I had a regular job, but the contract stuff and selling online is just getting us by. Once I re-enter the 9-5 world, after 20 years, I plan on replacing/upgrading many things (car, appliances, computers) and rebuilding the collecting that had dwindled over the years. Presented here is what we have left, that isn’t up for sale. Some is my wife’s, others are mine, and some we’ve collected together. The best thing about collecting again is that, if needed, I can always flip my stuff for more than I paid and start over again.
If you want to see what I would like to add to my collection, so far, then check out my collection list on eBay: My 45 Year Wish List! Misty’s will be building her list soon.
