Well I did try to post that both The Incredible Hulk and The Bionic Women where mad that they were not included on this list of 1970’s superhero shows. The post came with gifs of them being angry (Ferringo’s Hulk throwing a bailiff across a courtroom and the bionic woman character Janie Summer ripping something electronic off a wall) . But something went wrong and the site wouldn’t post the post. The sad part was that the bionic woman part came with the joke that “she decided to act like a mature lady about this”, then the gif, and then the words, “Well, maybe not!?!”

The one I was going to use was the next one after that where the Hulk throws stunt Charles Andre. But Stan Lee is listed in the credits as the jury foreman.

The Hulk has been hogging polls for years!
Maybe a Bionic Woman vs Bionic Man get married with children and seek Marriage Counseling from Billy Crystal.
Analyze my Circuits!
I Hope the Bailiff wasn't Richard Moll!

Or ... Wonder Woman meets the Bionic Woman.this scene works if 1) you are told that one knows of the other but has never seen one another, 2) they exist in the same universe, 3) that Wonder Woman’s golden lasso Of Truth works only on living tissue. (Yeah, you can kind of see where this is going to go.)
In a fight, Wonder Woman throws her lasso to catch Jamie Sommers. But Sommers raises her arm up and the lasso wraps around the arm. Wonder Woman yanks on the lasso and pulls Jamie Sommers towards her. Wonder Woman says , “Don’t fight it. The Hesta’s lasso Of Tarth forces you to tell the truth and to comply of any living thing it captures. Now who are you?”
Jannie says, “That’s interesting.” Summers pulls back on the lasso and reverses the hold and wraps Wonder up in her own lasso. Wonder Woman is shocked at what happened. Jamie says to Wonder Woman, “Wrong arm. Bionic. It isn’t living tissue. Now who in hell are you? (insert a swear word here).”
“Princess Diana of Themyscira”
“Princess who??? There is no Place called Themyscia. I’d never heard of it. You’re lying.”
The lasso shatters when anybody challenges the truth. Diana reverses the hold and pins jannie to the floor.
“I said I am Princess Diana of Themyscira... Diana Troy. You know ... “Wonder Woman”. Now who are YOU!!!”
“If you let me up I’ll show you my ID. Jamie Sommers, OSI, and you had just ruined three weeks of my work trying to nail Lex Luther.”

Hesta’s lasso Of Tarth only works on lower Wacker Dr! Everybody knows that. WW would have nailed Lex if she took him out on Saturday for Dinner at a nice place On Rush St. Plus lasso's work better in The Loop!

That is Wonder Woman’s golden lasso. Hestia was one of the cooler Greek Olympian Goddesses. The first born of six children of Cronos and Rhea, (Hestia, Demeter, Hades, Poseidon, Hera,and Zesus), the first child Cronos devours, and the last comes out of Cronos as Zesus freed her (hence she is both the oldest and youngest of the first six (hey, it is an Ancient Greek logic puzzle that only the ancient Greeks could understand)). She is one of the two virgin Olympian goddesses. And because she willingly chose virginity, she became the direct opposite of Aphrodite, and was the only one Aphrodite could not trap with her tricks. Also because she was the goddess of the hearth and that hearths are immovable, she has the immovable personality and is the stay at home goddess. (That is why the lasso shatters if you questions the answers of those who are captured by the lasso. The universal truth is seen as immovable as the hearth is.) She is the one who gives up her seat on the high Olympic counsel of the Gods when Athena comes into the counsel because Hestia’s wisdom was to maintain order both in the home and in government. She resigns her seat so that there will be six male gods and six females God’s and not seven female gods to six male gods if she had stayed on. But she does stay in the counsel chamber to attend the hearth. She is the most forgotten goddess. She is the Greek goddess of “of the hearth, architecture*, and the right ordering of domesticity, the family, the home, and the state.” Her symbol is the hearth and fire.
Why am I going on about Hestia? Because I have the complete “Percy Jackson & the Olympians” book series and it is Hestia that the last title of that series refers too as “The Last Olympian”. It is her and her humble gifts to Percy Jackson and the Camp Half bloods that ultimately do in Cronos and his army. Without giving too much away, it is her who defends hearth and home while Cronos lures the rest of the gods away. Cronos forgot about her and ignores her. Big mistake.

* I question the architecture part because Athena is usually more associated with that.

No, Steve Austin all the away! And Kwai Chang Caine too. The fighting was more realistic.

Linda Carter’s Wonder Woman fought like girl and not even good girl fighting! http://images6.fanpop.com/image/photo...
Now THIS IS GOOD GIRL FIGHTING!

(Believe me, the source where I got those two from, they were the nicest ones. The rest got real nasty and it was better I didn’t promote those here.)
I hope you know I’m joking here and giving you a Saturday bump.

Well since we talk about every live action superhero show of the 1970s, mine was well list them all here and finally get the last one too. Sorry guys but Tobey Maguire was not the first actor play a live action Spider-Man. Nicholas Hammond was.
- “The Amazing Spider-Man“ (TV series 1977-1979).*
- The Bionic Woman (1976-1978 TV Series).
- ”Captain America” (1979 TV movie)*
- Captain America II: Death Too Soon (1979 TV movie) *
- The Incredible Hulk
- Kung Fu (1972-1975 TV series).
- The Six Million Dollar Man (1974-1978 TV series).
- Wonder Woman” (1974 TV Movie) with Kathie Lee Crosby was Wonder Woman instead of Linda Carter.*
- Wonder Woman (1975-1979 TV series with Linda Carter).

* Sorry guys, but IMHO, these shows were so badly done and the special effects technology for tv was just simply not there to do the artistic visions of these characters justice, that they made the Batman (1966-1968 TV series) look like a masterpiece. If you going to do something like live action comicbook superheroes, do it right or don’t do it at all.

But this is not the sixties. It is the seventies. And even “My Favorite Martian” had better effects than I had marked with an asterisk. Since when did Spider-Man wear a utility belt of external webbing cartridges , and wear a bracelet for a web shooter? Oh and his webbing looks like rope.

Who says that cheesy adds are just in the 60’s or 70’s . Here is an ad that Pepsi ran that make rival Cocoa-cola a superhero. https://www.fooddive.com/news/coke-fa...
Tv wasn’t the only place you found cheesy commercials. Try the headers to movies on VHS tapes! I can personally testify that was the header to the first release to “Batman”(1989) on VHS and yes, that is a can of Diet Coke wearing a Batman cape. (That means Diet Coke beat both Pepsi and Coca-Cola to be a superhero!) http://itsonlyamoviepage.blogspot.com... Just joking - I wanted to order a tie to and we are not talking about neck ties. Seriously, you got to love the product bumps in the second half of that header. The WB catalogue with a Batman Logo on it - priceless.

Ed, you said “Where's The "Wonder Man"?”
Well his part was cut and left on the editing room floor. But he may appear in latter films. I can say that as fact which makes it the funniest answer of all. Why? Because that is exactly what happened to Nathan Fillion who was scheduled to play Simon Williams/Wonder Man in “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2”. The source: the “In Other Media” section of https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wonde...

I rather see Nathan Fillion bring the darkness, action, presence, and sarcasm of Mal in “Firefly” and the wit and charm of Castle of “Castle” to Hal Jordan/Green Lantern.

“10 tears younger”? I didn’t know tears could reduce your age. Of course 1 know you meant “Years”.

She wasn't on on 1975 but on 1976 and I thought she was basically the answer to the 6 million dollar man, maybe I had the wrong idea, I just remembered a Benny Hill skit about the 6 million dollar man and the bionic woman having a child...

Now let’s get this poll back on track. Wonder Woman Diana Prince maybe a immortal, or at least an extremely slow aging woman, Otho k Steve Austin is stronger.

That was meant to say “otherwise, Steve Austin was stronger” as in stronger than Wonder Woman.

Oh , btw, in the “Wonder Woman” and in “Justice League” the new Wonder Woman was “filmed” in slow motion (at least twice in JL) to show what she was doing. So, there goes your “No Slo-mo” idea out the window with Wonder Woman.

I like Elmo's idea of the Bionic Woman vs. the Bionic Man, as well as granger's idea of the two "Bionics" plus Wonder Woman and the Hulk. I'm a little too young to remember any of them but, according to CNN, they're the most popular of that genre in the era. Besides, there are posters of them all over the place in an obnoxious 70's clothing store in NYC, lol.

I'm a little too old! LOL. I remember them as a young man.
I'm so old that The Adventures of Superman (1952) is a boyhood memory in reruns.
Guess I'll have to do a Gilligan vs Barney Fife Poll. Silly Sidekicks of the Sixties!
Bionic Man and Woman vs Terminator Man and Woman!
You guys are great. Making that one right now.
