Six Million Dollar Man Vs. Deathlok



For a while I  had been hearing a Six Million Dollar Man movie (or even Six Billion according to some reports).  Jim Carrey was suggested to star, among others, and the last name I heard connected to it was Mark Wahlberg.  It's been a while since I have seen anything written about the potential project, though.  Perhaps the glut of superhero films has put it on the back burner for now.

The pose Neal Adams gives to Steve Austin is almost like a tribute to Doc Savage. With a little Mike Powers the Atomic Man (from GI Joe's Adventure Team) thrown in for good measure!

Happy Holidays, Ross. :-)

To you too, Cary!

Have you read last year's crossover limited series that teamed-up the Bionic Woman with Wonder Woman'77 ? I though that it was good.

I'm glad that Jim Carrey's no longer part of the mix. I'm sick and tired of old TV shows and other media being turned into comedic films. They may not have had the highest production values and even the writing may have been lacking in some cases but they were not comedies.

I guess it started with the Ackroyd/Hanks Dragnet movie and Hollywood has been stuck in that mode ever since. Why I don't know seeing as how most of these so called comedies don't even do good box office.

Alright I guess I'll step of my soap box but that's one of my hot buttons. I just don't get why they do it. The recent Comic book movies have shown that you can treat the source material with respect and do great box office.

I would love to see a pulp/dieselpunk cinematic universe with the Shadow, Doc Savage, Green Hornet, the Spider, et al. But NOT as stupid comedies.

Oh guess I wasn't all the way off that soapbox. ;-)

Merry Yuletide!

What ALF did to that seal on the cover of ALF #48 is highly inappropriate. I don't think the seal liked it one bit.

Thank you Jack-El!

Yes it appears that many stars & directors, even with good intentions, fall back to the comedy superhero movies. Maybe too many of them loved Batman as a kid (and Adam West did not play it as a comedy even if it was being done so around him),

I agree with you, Alena! I was pissed off with Ben Stiller's comedic take on Starsky & Hutch, cuz it ruined the chances of a possible "serious" take of it later. Same goes with Seth Rogan's Green Hornet. Now how do you feel about the flipside- a gritty dark take on Plastic Man. And I hear Netflix is preparing a dark horror take on Sabrina the Witch!!

To be fair, Archie have already published [at least] one of those anyway...

Now that WWE is doing books again, maybe we can see a Stone Cold Steve Austin vs Steve Austin Six Million Dollar Man
