Reply Subj: New banner! Thanks Thjan! Let's talk live action superheroes in the 80s and 90s

    Lois & Clark weren't the only ones.

    In 1981 we had Greatest American Hero.

♥ Robert Culp -- not that way... but close

    In 1985 we had Misfits of Science, if you count that.

I don't know why you wouldn't count it. Courteney Cox might not want to count it on her resume, but...

Hey, it had Kevin "Predator" Hall unmasked!

Not winning any awards, and did deserve only one season, but certainly a fun series for kids.

    In 1988 we had Superboy.

Mmm... Stacy Haiduk...

    In 1990 we had the Flash.

This deserved more than one season. Still angry about that.

    Of course in 1993 we had Lois & Clark.

Never much of a fan, but I can see why many were.

    In 1997 we had Buffy the Vampire Slayer.

We're still a Buffy family.

    Am I forgetting any?


Incredible Hulk ran into the 80s (ending 1982), and then had three made-for-tv movies.

Manimal (1983) - I'd consider a guy turning into animals running around saving people a superhero.

Zorro and Son (1983) - oh dear gosh, why do I remember this? Disney product. Henry Darrow as Zorro. I forget who the son was. It lasted about 5 episodes.

Greatest American Heroine (1986) - tv movie; potential spin-off that failed

The Spirit (1987) - tv movie with Sam J. Jones, Nana Visitor

Zorro (1990) - ran on The Family Channel for a few years

Swamp Thing series (1990-1993)

Power Pack had a pilot in 1991, which has aired a few times.

Human Target (1992) - 7 or so episodes, then dust

Power Rangers (1993-????) - I would certainly consider them superheroes.

RoboCop: The Series (1994-1995) - as bad as it was, it was better than the recent remake

Generation X (1996) - tv movie

Ninja Turtles: The Next Mutation (1997) - and the female turtle, Venus De Milo!

Night Man (1997-1999) - Jazz saxophonist superhero? You bet I was a fan. Coolest car since KITT, imo (Plymouth Prowler).

Nick Fury (1998) - tv movie

The Crow series (1998) - forgot the subtitle

Angel - just squeaks by, starting in 1999.

Argument could be made for Herc/Xena being superheroes.

I think a case could be made for Knight Rider, as well. But even if not him, you'd certainly have to count that other 80s superhero with an awesome car-- the Tron-inspired Automan!
