Craig Stirling, Sharron Macready and Richard Barrett were agents for Nemesis, an international intelligence organization based in Geneva. Their first mission as a team was to investigate some potentially lethal experiments in Communist China, but when they were escaping, their plane was damaged. They crashed into a remote part of the Himalayas where they were rescued by members an unknown civilization. They came away from the encounter with superhuman powers--telepathy, superior strength, memory, etc.--and returned to the outside world as "Champions of law, order and justice." Written by

In 2008, when Tom Cruise and his producing partner Paula Wagner took over United Artists, they announced a feature version of " The Champions " with Christopher Mcquarrie scripting, Guillermo del Toro directing and Tom Cruise starring. However following " Valkyrie " and the poor performance of " Lions for Lambs " , Cruises ambitious slate was cancelled. See more »
This is a suprisingly good series. The basic story is that three people crash in the Himalayas and are rescued by monks and taught mystical powers. They then return to civilisation and become sort of special agents, using their powers for good.
It sounds cheesy, but it is actually good fun. The special powers are understated - exceptional hearing, healing and telepathy are among them and whilst playing a key role in the shows, are by no means the central aspect which the series revolves around (unlike later series such as the Hulk etc.)
If you can get to see this series, it'll pleasantly surprise you.
