They say that television is called a ‘medium’, because it’s neither rare nor well-done, but it is a business of cycles.  Every few years, certain genres and stories recur, among those the superhero story.  After Batman in ’66, the likes of Mr. Terrific and Captain Nice arrived, while the end of the 70s brought another bumper crop, featuring Spider-Man, The Hulk, Wonder Woman and lesser lights such as Automan.  2014 is another big year for fans of the super-dupers, with Green Arrow already in play, The Flash and Constantine on their way, and hopefully another batch of low-rent knockoffs like Street Hawk and The Greatest American Hero ready in the wings.  It’s a great time to be a fan of superheroes, which brings us to our more powerful than a locomotive query…
