I vote for a TV show based on Doctor Strange or the Sub-Mariner! Blow that budget thru the roof!
Why would it blow the budget though the roof? CBS did a relatively cheap Dr. Strange pilot in the late '70s and Man From Atlantis was pretty close to Namor. With tody's visual effects they can do alot more for less money than they did in the '70s. Smallville was able to do things with Clark's powers that we still have to yet on the big screen.
Doctor Strange wouldn't be worth doing without the visuals inspired by Ditko's art, just as Sub-Mariner would be absurd without Atlantis. But some cop show in sci fi window dressing is so much cheaper. and no doubt that's what we'll get.
And they can do all of that with CGI and Namor has really spent ery little time in Atlantis I could care less if we see it or not. And Namor has had plenty of surface adventures he did fight WWII with Captain America as a part of the Invaders.
The greatest science fiction series of all time is
Doctor Who! And I'll take you all on, one-by-one
or all in a bunch to back it up!"
--- Harlan Ellison, from his introduction
to the PINNACLE series of Doctor Who books
