1979 LEGENDS OF THE SUPERHEROES Ad! TV GUIDE! Batman! Flash! Hulk?!


Here are two actual ads from a 1979 TV GUIDE, showcasing the television take-over of the comics superheroes of the day! Below left is an ad for an early INCREDIBLE HULK episode, when the show was still getting raves from critics, kids, and adults alike! On the right, however, is an ad for the ultra-oddball LEGEND OF THE SUPERHEROES, a campy, video-taped hour-long presentation that gave us the first live-action versions of such DC stalwarts as Hawkman, Green Lantern, Flash, and other JUSTICE LEAGUE members! It also brought back, briefly, Adam West and Burt Ward reprising their 1966 BATMAN TV roles! That was the good part. To see how tepid this show truly was, click here for just a taste!
