D.C. Comics on T.V. and in the Cinema

D.C. Comics have made several attempts to bring their characters to both the big and small screen. While my site is aimed at covering characters less well known than those who belong to the "Big Two" (Marvel and D.C.), many of these interpretations of D.C. characters also added their own unique characters to the mythos, and it's those new and less well known individuals who have crept into the distant corners of the D.C. multiverse whom I plan to cover in the sections below.

It should be noted that while D.C. came to own Captain Marvel, Plastic Man and Blackhawk, I don't intend to list the cartoons or series devoted to those characters below. They will get covered in their own individual bios.

An addendum on the Live Action movies - as Kelvin Green points out, the Karate Kid movies of the 1980s shared their name with a D.C. character (a member of the Legion of Super-Heroes), and the movies acknowledged this in the credits, where the producers thanked D.C. for the use of the (trademarked) name.
