Looks like a new hero will be coming to our television screen very soon! CW has announced the development of an Hourman show! I gotta admit I have mixed feelings about the show ranging from excitement to cautious optimism. So I decided to do a little pro and con breakdown on the proposed Hourman show:
1) This is a huge one, the entire show could be set on Earth 2!!!! How awesome would that be?!?!? We could have the JSA appearing on television. This first pro wins pretty much over everything else.
2) Doctor Fate has a HUGE chance of showing up on the Hourman show. And he better!!!
3) Potential cross over episodes with Arrow and Flash television shows.
4) A Golden Age JSA character is being recognized and given his own show. Very cool.
1) Looks like they might be taking his super strength away for future vision. However, he does work for a chemical factory so Miraclo can still be part of the show.
2) Obscure character such as Hourman may bomb on the ratings. Lets hope not.
3) From the description, I have a feeling he may never dawn the Hourman costume.
Overall, the potential of having the show be set in Earth 2 makes me so very excited. Also, the potential of having the JSA come together in live television is beyond my wildest dreams. So lets hope for the best, and thank you DC Comics, WB, and CW for making my inner child jump for joy at the chance of these things happening.
