The Wrong Genre
I was a fan of Christopher Chance in the DC comics. Chance was a mature hero, a realistic human being with a location, friends, roots, a back story, and distinguished white at the temples with dark hair on top. (Since I have gone gray in a similar manner, this was an unavoidable affection for the Human Target. the comic was always a bit downbeat, film noir flavoured, briefly but well plotted. Christopher chance was not ridiculously wealthy (Batman), super powered (Superman) or costumed (every comic book hero). In some ways he was a throwback to comic strip heroes from *before* Superman came on the scene; more the detective than the fantasy strongman. However, in their wisdom, all this was lost in the short-lived television series. This was sad since the actor playing Chance might have been able to carry the real role, but was never given the opportunity. Perhaps someday someone will make a motion picture or television show on the *real* Christopher Chance. That would be worth watching.
