6. Nick Fury: Agent of S.H.I.E.L.D.

The Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. may have found success on network television in their eponymous TV series but it wasn't the first time the heroes were adapted for the small screen. In 1998, Fox commissioned a pilot titled Nick Fury: Agent of S.H.I.E.L.D. that would have brought some of Marvel's greatest agents to television nearly two decades earlier. David Hasselhoff was cast as the gruff Fury in the hopes of attracting mainstream viewers and the pilot episode aired in May 1998. It wasn't picked up for series.

That pilot episode has lived on infamy, however, as it was eventually repackaged as a TV movie and released on DVD a decade later. It's... unique to say the least. While superhero television wasn't a staple of the medium in the '90s, the idea of a spy procedural, crime drama based on Marvel characters was actually quite thrilling. The only problem is that Nick Fury: Agent of S.H.I.E.LD. wasn't very good.

The production values were low, the dialogue wasn't good (although there were some pretty great one-liners), and David Hasselhoff's star power just wasn't enough to elevate this one beyond a poor '90s TV movie. It's not quite Justice League of America bad, but it's not much better either.
