For your amusement and entertainment, UGO has launched another HeroMachine "mini" version to celebrate the launch of NBC's "The Cape" -- The HeroMachine Ordinary Joe Edition:
Most of the components are transplants from the Real Life Edition, but I added at least four or five new things in each slot. Enjoy!
I’ll be watching, and hoping it will be good.
It’s got Keith David in it, so I can only assume it’ll be awesome.
its got a guy in a mask and cape, it already beats Smallville, Heroes, and No Ordinary Family! 🙂
The previews look good, but the origin story sounds a little corny. Apparently, he’s a cop who gets framed for murder, goes into hiding, and learns how to fight from a group of circus-themed bank robbers. Then he finds/is given a magic suit that takes the form of the costume of “The Cape”, a comic hero his son reads. It sounds a little too golden age to work nowadays, but I’m hoping it’ll be as good as it looks even so…
So.. speaking of average Joe supers… have you guys seen the Rain City Superhero Crime Fighting Movement guys?
NBC always has my attention community and now the cape yes.
sooo….. HM for Android?
I’ll check out The Cape. There really needs to be a Superhero Television Channel. Or maybe SyFy, which is owned by NBC, can dedicate block time.
I don’t have top tier stations, so I don’t know G4’s programming. Except for the oh so awesome Cobra Commander Show.
The Flash, the old Superman serials, Flash Gordon, M.A.N.T.I.S., Birds of Prey, Captain America, Spider-Man… it can and should be done.
Don’t count on SyFy…
Most of their ‘original’ programming consists of Reality shows, and Pro Wrestling (Not even Luchadores!)
Yeah, the SyFyllus Channel has pretty much abandoned their core demographic.
I’ll check it out, but I don’t have high hopes. I’ve been watching No Ordinary Family for my superhero kick, but it’s a bit campy and too obvious, but there are some good parts about it. And Heroes was great until the writers’ strike happened. And then they spread their writing talent too thin by doing all of the online content. I could go on and on about why Heroes failed in the end, but I try to just remember the first two seasons and nothing else.
I watched The Cape last night. Pretty much what I expected as far as writing and production value. It had its moments. Especially funny was when The Cape visited his son: “You’re dad really loved you… and you need to work on your math.”
NBC will do better with the on-line audience than the tv audience. Besides, Summer Glau. For those having a hard time pronouncing her name, try saying “Golly, wow!” past your drool.
