The Police Story series was initially born out of spite from Jackie Chan's displeasure at how his second American film, The Protector, turned out. Ironically, it was in that latter film that Jackie's character, Billy Wong, was referred to as "Supercop" by his superior. This in turn ended up being the subtitle (and in the case of the US release, the main title) of this film.
