When they were rescued by members an unknown society, they came away with superhuman powers; telepathy, superior strength, memory, etc. Thet returned to the outside world as "Champions of law, order and justice."Written by

You can tell by the Buddhist overtones in the first 2 episodes that Dennis Spooner was involved here. The Champions, or what I've seen of the series (6 episodes), is yet another in the long line of 60s-70s spy shows from Great Britain. But the marked difference here is the special abilities given to each of the main characters.
They all have unusual, superhuman powers which aid them in their crime-busting. It's a bit cheesy at times, but whatever gets the job done...
I know that The Champions are virtually unheard of in my native country, but the videos are commercially available in the UK. If you're fond of obscure technicolor british action-adventure, then you can't miss The Champions.
The only problem I have with the series so far: Why do so many British shows have American actors at the helm?
