Did You Know?


Originally produced in 1986, as a pilot for an unrealized "Solarman" series. A videocassette was released in 1989 to tie-in with Marvel's short-lived "Solarman" comic book, and the pilot aired once on the Fox Kids Network, as a "special presentation", in September 1992. See more »

An obscure but worthwhile exercise.

Ever heard of Solarman? Of course not because his comic only ran for two issues or so before being cancelled and his cartoon only ran for one episode; this one. Gormagga Kraal is an alien warlord who is planning to drain the sun of all its power so he can convert it into energy for his super-laser. The scientist who developed the super-laser decides he doesn't like this at all and so he fires a strange bracelet device to Earth where it is discovered by a boy named Benjamin Tucker. The scientist explain that if Benjamin Tucker presses the button on the bracelet while it's out in the sunlight then it will turn him into a fully grown superhero named Solarman. If you're a fan of the cheesy then you owe it to yourself to see this film; it's short so it's not too much of your life gone and it manages to pack a lot of 'what the flying hell?' into its runtime. This movie is technically solid for its time and action is incredibly entertaining.
