    I think Powerman and Ironfist would work really well as a buddy show. It used to feel made for tv in the early eighties.

    For DC - The Question would work well.

    The Question:


    It would be "The Shadow" meets "Hunter S. Thomspon." The tail of a highly troublemaking reporter turned vigilante, trying to clean up his city, and find answers, both practically and philisophically. The cast:


    The Question: Nathan Fillion

    I always thought Green Lantern would make a better TV show than a movie.

    You can have the main GL Hal Jordan, and explore the guardians and space and his personal life, eventually introducing Alan Scott has episodes which are in his past,introducing other Green Lanterns and exploring them eventually coming too Kyle Rayner and making him the main star for a season having Hal go a little mental, and then have hmi come back.

    Also, for those who don't know about the characters:


    Proffesor Rodor: The Question's confidant and best friend, and the man who made his mask. Tot is a rather old fasioned guy, versed in classic english literature and rather conservative. He sevres as a bit of a foil for The Question's rather middle of the road, libertarian veiws, and he also servesas the voice of reason, usually telling Q when his plans for the crime fighting are completely insane (which they usually are).

    Richard Dragon: The man who taught The Question how to fight. After getting the crap beat out of him by the mob shorlt into his career, Q went to Richard for training and guidance. Richard helped broaden Q's world veiws, but also serves as a foil, being the somewhat steriotypical left wing zen martial arts master.

    Lady Shiva: A highly skilled hand to hand combatant and assasin/mercenary for hire, Shiva was hired by the Hub City mobs as a body gaurd. It was there that she faced the then rather green Question, and beat him to within and inch of his life. However, she saw a good deal of potential in him. So, after her employers dumped Q in the river, she saved him and preformed CPR on him, saving his life. She then sent him off to train with Dragon. A source of greif for Q, she is fond of testing him for his true potential. She also feels that, since she saved his life, he is indebted to her, and thus asks favors of him from time to time.

    Myra Fermin: Vic Sage's love interest and fellow reporter, Myra was blackmailed into marrying Hub City's incredibly corrupt mayor during the months where Vic was training with Dragon. However, because the mayor was a drunken idiot, she began basically running the city for him. Eventually, they divorce, and she runs for mayor herself.

    Reverend Jerimiah Hatch: A catholic preist, Hatch signed up for military service in his youth. However, during one particularly bloody battle, his faith in god was shaken, and he lashed out, killing as many enemy soldiers as possible. He returned to Hub City, and eventually rose to the possition of Arch Bishop of the area. Using his possition of power, he became a rather powerful mob boss. Quite insane, he tends to quote the bible and religious hyms while killing people. He serves as an early villain for Q to face.

    Izzy O'Toole: A dirty cop in a long standing tradition of Hub City dirty cops. He wasn't particularly corrupt as much as he didn't care. He would look the other way. When cops were running errands for the mob, he'd play pretend that it wasn't happening. However, after The Question saved his life, he began to change. He started actually caring about his city, and became a better police officer and a better man because of it.

    Martian Manhunter would be kinda cool to see.
    I always thought a Batman series would be cool, but with the movies that isn't going to happen.

    There's also a few Vertigo series that would be great on TV. Y, Fables and 100 Bullets in particular.

    Yeah, 100 Bullets would make a great show. There will be exactly 100 episodes.

    It would work better than Smallville. Not only do you get to do the teen angst crap that the networks seem to love so much these days, but you also get an actual Superhero showing up from time to time. Personally, I would rather they made a cartoon instead of a live action version.

    The Super Buddies:


    A cartoon on Adult Swim, the Super Buddies follows the exploits of a group of former Justice League members (they were kicked out), who form a private detective agency. The cast of characters is:


    Maxwell Lord (voiced by Jason Bateman). A sleazy and manipulative buisnessman who served as the League's benefactor and leason to the United Nations until he was fired and replaced by Bruce Wayne. Max says it was because of a conflict of interests, but the League say it was because he is "a self centered moral parasite, who's only purpose in life is to leech off of other people."

    Blue Beetle (voiced by Ben Stiller). Former tech specialist for the League, Ted Kord serves as the straight man of the group. He has a rather witty sense of humor, and is by far the most sensible person there.

    Booster Gold (voiced by Owen Wilson). Booster Gold hails from the 25th century. He came back in time to be a super hero, wanting the fame, money, and hot babes that he thought would follow. He's Beetle's best friend, and is usually behind some get rich quick scheme.

    Fire (voiced by Maria Canals). A former assasin for the Brazillian government turned super hero turned super model turned internet porn star, Fire is by far one of the more complex characters here. She seems like a brainless bimbo, but she is in fact highly inteligent, and is usually pulling people's asses out of danger.

    Elongated Man: Ralph Dibny, amature detective turned streachable slueth, is the only real detective of the group. He's also one of the most potent fighters, but no one wants to tell him that because they want to avoid the massive ego trip.

    Sue Dibny (voiced by Morena Baccarin). Ralph's wife, and the foil to his rather quirky nature. She's highly inteligent, and practically runs the buisness herself, even though Max technically owns it. The two often argue.

    Mary Marvel (voiced by Amanda Bynes). Innocent, sweet, and very naive, Mary is a mystical powerhouse and the result of a rather sheltered up bringing. She is incredibly girly and loves all things cute and fluffy. What makes matters worse, she's Fire's roommate.

    Captain Atom (voiced by Benjamin McKenzie). A career military super soldier, Nathaniel Adam served as the Justice League's leason to the U.S. government before eventually leaving the team. He now works with the super buddies because, well, he's out of a job.

    Guy Gardner (voiced by Jack Black). A former Green Lantern, he was booted out of the League when the man who he replaced, Hal Jordan, came back. Quite resentful, Guy.....borrowed a ring, and began acting as an intergalactic vigilante. He joined the super buddies after he opened a resturant next door to them, and decided to join in the fun.

    Green Lantern would be too expensive to be done properly.

    The best suggestions so far have been The Question, 100 Bullets, and Martian Manhunter (provided he's a human looking detective 75% of the time and not on the Justice League).

    Any of these three could be done reasonably well with a realistic TV budget. Personally, I'd love to see 100 Bullets on HBO! No censors. No commercials.

    I think Dr. Fate could be pretty cool as a live action tv series.

    Yeah, like I've suggested before, Owen Wilson and Ben Stiller would be a good Booster Gold and Blue Beetle...

    Does it have to be a show with real people like Smallville? Cause I think it would be cooler to see new cartoons of superheroes besides that show "The Batman" which is a disgrace to the franchise. :/

    Green Lantern wouldn't be too expensive... maybe back in the 90s it would be, but not now. It's scope is only as big as your normal sci-fi show... just don't hire stupidly expensive stars.

    I would rather GL looks better than the latest Star Trek and is of higher quality than Battlestar Galactica.

    Nuff Said!!!

    I really don't think any other DC group of characters would work as well on TV.

    Nightwing. It could either be done two ways: 1) it could take place after he leaves Batman's side and travels to Bludhaven to establish himself as his own hero, but meanwhile he becomes a cop. Or 2) it could just be with him already as Nightwing, but he is still a cop, too, like in the comics.

    I'd also like to see a series following the exploits of reporter Vic Savage (with or without the mask) teaming up with Detective John Jones (the Martian Manhunter in disguise) in a sort of X-Files esque show.

    And then there's (you all might stone me for this, but oh well) the continuation of "Birds of Prey". It was a pretty underrated show, IMO and didn't get enough time to be fleshed out like "Smallville" was.

    I'd like an Avengers cartoon or other DCAU-class Marvel cartoons.

    I dont want any live action shows at the moment.

    I would watch my own funeral if Madman was there so Id have to put him at the top of my list.

    Astro City would work amazingly well as an HBO series.

    Id watch a Bone cartoon.

    um, as far as DC goes...um...I dont know...Kid Eternity on the Sci-fi Channel might be cool.

    Or The Black Hood done all gritty like The Sheild or The Sopranos...DC still owns Black Hood right??? I think i may have been the only person on earth buying the Impact books.

    Didn't Mark Waid used to write for the Impact books? They were pretty good. Althoug, I was disapointed that they weren't in continuity with the old Archie Comics super hero books. The way the stories were, it wouldn't have been hard to do.

    I kind of thought that they were in continuity...I seem to remember the earlier versions being mentioned at least...maybe in Legend Of The Sheild...but the Black hood ruled! You gotta love a charcter that shows up as a guest star in every single book begging people to form a superteam and then gets his own series and dies in the first issue...that was badass (well, I remember it being badass...maybe a new read would tell otherwise, I was young and niave, like that time at Uncle Roscos house...)
