One of the few TV super heroes not derived from a comic book. However, D.C. Comics published a short-lived comic book during the show's second season. 30 years later, DC Comics acquired the rights to the character and created a new version who is a definite part of their regular comics universe, but as the consort of the seemingly reformed supervillain nemesis of Captain Marvel, Black Adam. This character was killed off, but the magic amulet is being used by a new host. As a tribute to the alter-ego of the original TV version of the character, the 2006-2007 comic book version was given the secret identity of Adrianna Tomaz. See more »
Because of the frequent use of stock footage continuity errors would often be present. Perhaps the most noticeable example is completely different backgrounds before and after Andrea's transformation into Isis. Her first action after transforming was to take flight and a handful of stock takeoffs recur repeatedly throughout the series. See more »
This was a great Saturday morning show for more than the kids. The dads too enjoyed seeing JoAnna Cameron as Isis dealing with all kinds of 20th century trouble.
By day Cameron was Andrea Thomas mild mannered archaeologist who came into possession of an ancient amulet, purportedly the property of Queen Hatshepsut back in the day. Worked properly and the spirit of ancient Isis entered the body of presumably a female and could give one superpowers.
JoAnna Cameron was one drop dead gorgeous goddess. Many a pubescent teen had some fantasies about her. Like Clark Kent she kind of dressed down in Andrea Thomas mode and had the requisite pair of dorky looking glasses as I recall.
I wouldn't mind seeing this again sometime.
