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.
Hayley Atwell in Agent Carter (2015)
Tw of the best heroes ever, Mr. Tom Baker, the fourth Doctor and Liz Sladen as Sarah Jane Smith 🙂
Ultraman! The show responsible for my ultra geekness!
Guy Williams as Zorro!
Xena. Nuff Said.
Yes. This is going to be a great show. Trust me.
Super Spies rank right up there as well. Wild, Wild West.
Justin Hartleys Green Arrow and Michael Shanks Hawkman Smallville Justice League episode
Before Reeve there was Reeves.
The Power of Isis
Tarzan was always a favorite show of mine in the early 1970’s.
I don’t remember much about this show, except that it impressed me when I was in the sixth grade.
Doctor Fate (Brent Stait) and Stargirl (Britt Irvin) Smallville Justice League episode
Still a classic.
Man From Atlantis from 1977
Campy, yes, but still a fun show to enjoy OR make fun of.
Rex Smith played Daredevil in the late 80’s. Recognise the suit?
The Kato show… oh I mean the Green Hornet 😉
The Monster Squad was another favorite. Supernatural Superheroes.
This is a week old now and I can post without any knee-jerk opinion. Apart from the overly dark world that is portrayed all over the DC Movie Universe, which is so unlike what the DCU was, I like the direction that they went with Gal Gadot’s outfit. Personally it is far too close to Xena’s look from the old 90’s TV show and didn’t go far enough into ancient Grecian style. I am done ranting about how they picked a skinny petite woman over, what should be, a larger woman in the vein of Cory Everson. I reserve judgment for how well Ms. Gadot does as Dianna. If comic book movies have taught us one thing, they have taught us to not cry FAIL until the movie has been released… remembering the public outcry of Michael Keaton being revealed as the star in Batman (1989).
Here are a few other options for Dianna’s cinematic look:
I dig this one. Just add the battle skirt and this woman could be a proper Dianna fit for filming now.
