Superheroes of the: 1970s


In the seventies, superheroes made a concerted attempt to take over television.  

Not just on Saturday mornings, either, but in prime time as well.  This was the great decade, after all, of Lynda Carter's Wonder Woman, Patrick Duffy's The Man from Atlantis, and Lou Ferrigno's Hulk.

The 1970s also brought us Isis, two versions of Captain Marvel, the Super Friends, and first (and best) movie version of The Man of Steel, as played by Christopher Reeve in Superman: The Movie (1978).

How many of these superheroes do you remember and recognize?
