While I’m not always a fan of adaptations of comic books in other media, some characters just scream out to be movies, books, or even stalwarts of the small screen…  Welcome to Ten Things!

Whooshman-Bicarbonate Films, in conjunction with ‘An Amateur Comics Historian’ and The Chimpanzee That Programmed TV In That One Disney Movie, Presents:

TEN SUPERS WITH MASSIVE TV POTENTIAL!

10) ALPHA CENTURION

Alpha-Centurion

Marcus Aelius, of ancient Rome, was trained by an alien race known as the Virmiru, given mighty powers to serve as the protector of Metropolis.  With so many of DC’s heroes already on TV, the idea of a man from the past in modern society has been seen with Hawkman, but it would be easy to differentiate the two.  Imagine a principled, honorable Alpha Centurion portrayed by someone who can actually act, trying to apply his ways to the modern world?  The concept practically sells itself!

Matthew Peterson

Once upon a time, there was a young nerd from the Midwest, who loved Matter-Eater Lad and the McKenzie Brothers... If pop culture were a maze, Matthew would be the Minotaur at its center. Were it a mall, he'd be the Food Court. Were it a parking lot, he’d be the distant Cart Corral where the weird kids gather to smoke, but that’s not important right now... Matthew enjoys body surfing (so long as the bodies are fresh), writing in the third person, and dark-eyed women. Amongst his weaponry are such diverse elements as: Fear! Surprise! Ruthless efficiency! An almost fanatical devotion to pop culture!

And a nice red uniform.

    Gonna vote for Best Tiger, guns n tactics easy and inexpensive. The bigger the hero, the cheaper the effects. And probably all shot in the dark for the stupid edgy Dark knight effect.
