Anywho, since there are a lot of over-rated super hero movies in theatres this summer, I would like to talk about some UNDER-rated champions of justice. First of all, once upon a time,people turned to radio for the adventures of heroes such as Superman, the Lone Ranger, and a certain pilot named CAPTAIN MIDNIGHT.His secret identity was pilot Jim "Red" Albright, and he led a paramilitary organization called the Secret Squadron, Although he started flying before WWII, he became a popular hero and role model during that difficult time in our Nation's history.
After being held hostage by The Wander Company, parent company of CM's sponsor, Ovaltine, the old Captain is back and flying in his eponymous comic book published by Dark Horse, the originator of such groundbreaking characters as The Mask, Concrete, and Hellboy as well as the company that has given new life to properties such as the STAR WARS movies, Conan The Barbarian, and the characters of MGM's greatest cartoon director, the one and only Fred "Tex" Avery. Although he may seem dated, the Dark Horse CAPTAIN MIDNIGHT is worth a test flight.
Also worth a look is THE AWESOMES, a super-spoof created by and starring the voice of SNL alum Seth Meyers as Doctor Professor Brock Awesome, son of Golden Age paragon of virtue Mr. Awesome, who leaves his super team after seventy years.Now that Mr. Awesome and most of the original team have left, who will save the world? Brock and his sidekick Muscleman go to the ends of the earth to find five more heroes to help them, and if THESE guys are Earth's last hope, it's about time to find a new planet, but this show,which you can only find on http://www.hulu.com, , is as funny and well-animated as anything you're liable to find on Adult Swim or FOX's Animation Domination.
See you two more times this week!
P.S.: A special shoutout to my fans in Flint, Saginaw, and Bay City, MI! I have AT LEAST one fan in the area, but I figured they deserved a little positive publicity!
