Captain Power and the Soldiers of the Future


All sorts of information about the show
Captain Power and the Soldiers of the Future


This sieres is by far the best ever developed to sell a line of toys! Created by many of the creative team which went on to make Babylon 5 this 1989 sereis lasted only one season but what a season it was. With the exception of the stupid killing of the only female regular in the final episode it was an all around outstanding piece of work. I really want to write a bunch about this series. Look for a complete episode guide coming soon along with some pictures form the gag reel.

Pilot gets killed. Series ends on a bummer..

27 Mar 88

The Canadian movie adaptaion of this series contains extra footage including a speech made by Captain Power about the death of Pilot. It is basically made up of 4 different episodes. I understand that it also has additional effects footage not used in the series either. Writers were contracted to work on a second season but evidently they toys had not sold well at all so the show went away. Quite a shame too.

 

Toys

There were quite a few Captain Power toys made.

Comics

There were two issues of a comic book made. Both with very nice art and color.

Contreversy

Few shows sparked debate like the show which could shoot back at you did.
