Trivia

In his autobiography, Adam West explicitly regretted this project; specifically the extremely cheap production. Of note are that the episodes were recorded on videotape rather than film, the heroes' and villains' respective headquarters are clearly the same set, exterior shots all take place in the same park, even by the standards of the day, the special effects are crude, and most of the hero and villain costumes are of low quality.

One of my favorite super-hero shows of all time!
16 February 1999 | by Mad Dog-3See all my reviews

I saw this show for the first time when I was 5 or 6 years old and I still remember it from then. I thought it was amazing because it had SO many heroes and villains...it introduced me to the whole world of comic books. Is it possible to get a copy of this? It was very tongue-in-cheek but, I still love it.
