This was one of the few television superheroes not derived from a comic book. DC Comics published a short-lived comic book during the show's second season. Thirty years later, DC Comics acquired the rights to the character and created a new version who is the consort of Black Adam, the seemingly reformed supervillain nemesis of Captain Marvel. This character was killed off, but the magic amulet is being used by a new host. As a tribute to the alter-ego of the original television version of the character, the 2006-2007 comic book version was given the secret identity of Adrianna Tomaz.
O mighty Isis!
Being an ancient Egyptian deity reincarnated in human form, ideally, Isis should be fluent in the Egyptian language. However, she never speaks a word of Egyptian throughout the entire series; instead, she chants some of the silliest rhymes this side of "Underdog" to make her powers work.
In syndication, the ending "morals tag" was removed from every episode. The original footage of these scenes is now lost, so when the series was released to DVD in 2007 the scenes could not be reinstated into the episodes; instead, second-generation copies of the scenes were included as a bonus feature.
