Finishing up with some stuff in comics-related media you might'a missed, but shouldn't'a . . . .
The original Swamp Thing Movie:
Never has a rubber suit been so much fun.
Yup.... there was one. It aired once on tv that I know of, and starred Sam Jones, who was also Flash Gordon in the movie of the same name in the 80's. He had the look of a superguy, but just never seemed to find the right part. Anyway, this project reflected the fun of the comic.
Birds of Prey tv show:
Yeah, I know. I like the comic, I liked the tv show. Bite me.
The Constantine Video Game:
I haven't seen the movie yet, although it's in my DVD player right now. But if you haven't played the video game because video games based on movies almost always suck, this is the exception. It was a fun, creepy time worth playing to the end.
Spider-Man on The Electric Company:
By popular demand, Spider-Man on the Electric Company. This was brilliant marketing by Marvel, because I and tons of kids like me were introduced to the character this way. For the first time, I thought there might be life beyond Batman and Captain Marvel.
The Human Target tv show:
The maker of the Flash tv show I raved about put this one together, and it was great. Rick Springfield, from that point on, became cool in my eyes for life.
The Smallville version of the Justice League:
The "Justice League" episode of Smallville is the only one I've seen. It rocked. I wish they'd run with it.
In 1998, there was a not-half-bad-considering TV movie of Nick Fury, Agent of S.H.I.E.L.D. Considering I normally can only stand the Ultimate version of the character, David Hasselhoff and crew must have done a pretty good job because I've seen it more than once.
Unfortunately, I can't find any clips, so here's Hasselhoff drunk:
The Generation X Tv pilot movie:
Generation X didn't go over with fans of the comic because of budget limitations and *ahem*... creative liberties from the source material. But, if you can watch this TV movie for what it was, this was actually a decent effort.
(A) it had Banshee, and (B) it had Max Headroom's Matt Frewer as a gleefully evil dude. Beloved and I enjoyed it. So there.
You can't miss out on Japanese Spider-Man!
And the greatest thing ever.....
that issue of Adventure Comics where Superboy had Hitler's brain:
