So not the pill popping Hourman who gets an hour of super strength?
The Rick Tyler Hourman does have that power, like his father the Golden Age Hourman, but he also has an hourglass that gives him visions of the future. I can see why that would be more TV-friendly than popping addictive pills to get superpowers.
Yes, more TV friendly, but I think taking the addictive substance Miraclo would make a better story. You don't have to reveal it's addictive right away, but slowly, until our hero realizes he is hooked.
