True, but he's too cool to leave out. Buck Rogers and Flash Gordon would fit here, I do believe. I loved those as a kid, too.

What's Super Powers? I looked it up on wikipedia, but nothing came up.
The Super Powers Team: Galactic Guardians was the last incarnation of the Superfriends franchise from Hanna-Barbera. The name change was due to a cross-promotion with an action figure line of that name, but it was a different show from its predecessors in other ways, more mature and sophisticated. The main villain was Darkseid (played by Frank Welker), and Adam West played Batman (though Casey Kasem still did Robin). Its staff included Alan Burnett, who would go on to produce Batman: TAS and most of the subsequent Batman animated series to date. Burnett's episode "The Fear" was the first screen depiction of the murder of Thomas and Martha Wayne (something even B:TAS wasn't allowed to show by the censors), and was something of a prototype for B:TAS.

Not based on a comic book. There were comics, but they were based on the show.

Pretty cool, indeed. Someone should start a thread on the series.

There you go: http://www.trekbbs.com/showthread.ph...33#post4911833

Buck Rogers and Flash Gordon would fit here, I do believe. I loved those as a kid, too.
Don't know if they qualify as superheroes, though, since they got no superpowers, no secret identities and no costumes. I mean, Captain Future had at least a nickname.
Depends on your definition of a superhero, I guess.

Well, "Buck" and "Flash" were both nicknames, for what it's worth. "Buck" was really Anthony Rogers, and while Flash was never given an official first name in the comics, the 2007 TV series called him Steven (after Steve Holland, who played him on TV in the '50s) while the 1996 animated series called him Alex (after his creator Alex Raymond).

Would you consider Adam Strange a superhero? He's a character in the same vein as Buck, Flash, and John Carter -- he doesn't have a secret identity or a costume in the sense you mean, and his "powers" are technological. But he's generally regarded as a superhero because he's a comic-book character who's often interacted with other DC heroes.

As I wrote above, it depends on how you define a superhero, and I'm not sure Rogers & Gordon qualify. I'm just as unsure about Adam Strange.

Re: Favorite Comic Based Superhero TV Shows

I'd count Flash and Buck as superheroes. They started out as comic strips, they have flashy costumes and cool scifi gadgets, and they regularly face evil aliens, mad scientists, and larger-than-life supervillains out to conquer the universe.

I mean, it's not like they're cowboys or cops or private eyes or something.

Heroes was a tv show that branched out into comics, not comics that got turned into a tv show.
Err, nobody in this thread has mentioned Heroes until your post. Who were you responding to?
