28. Human Target (1992)

While costumed superheroes weren't a regular part of the TV schedule in the '90s, there were some attempts to bring comic book characters to the small screen. Take the short-lived Human Target series in 1992, for instance. The show wasn't a typical superhero show on the surface, but it was based on the DC character Christopher Chance and it did follow the format of a typical superhero show, providing some action-packed adventures of the week.

The attempt to distance itself from its source material and serve as a rather standard action procedural actually could have worked if Human Target had been successful. It wouldn't have required as large a budget as, say, The Flash and given that the draw of its title character revolved around him taking on the identities of others, there wasn't a need for special effects. Unfortunately, it just didn't come together as the series was cancelled after seven poorly received episodes.

People weren't kind to Human Target when it was released but truthfully, the show was nothing worse than substandard. You can see the potential when watching it, and for that matter, it was very watchable.
