5 Obscure Marvel Shows You Never Knew Existed

Published

While Marvel is mainly known for its record-breaking films, their TV shows have also been on point. But for every show like The Incredible Hulk or Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., there are some that somehow get thrown under the rug. We look at five obscure Marvel shows that didn’t stand a chance.

Silver Surfer

X-Men and Spider-Man ruled Fox Kids in the ’90s, but one Marvel cartoon rarely gets mentioned. In 1998, Silver Surfer made its way to our TV screens, and it was a sight to behold. Unfortunately, the show only lasted 13 episodes due to a legal battle between Marvel and Saban Entertainment.

Supaidaman

Supaidaman (or, as most people called it, Japanese Spider-Man) was simply off the wall. This is Spider-Man fighting crime with a Megazord, people. This was actually the first time Toei unveiled this fighting robot before using it in their Super Sentai franchise. The cult favorite only lasted 41 episodes. Marvel Comics decided to make this unique version of the web-slinger canon in their 2014 Spider-Verse comic event.

Mutant X

Marvel

Mutant X was a way to use mutants without having to refer to the X-Men. Unfortunately, Fox, who own the rights to the X-Men, saw this show as a blatant rip off and decided to sue Marvel. The series lasted three seasons before getting cancelled on a cliffhanger.

Blade: The Series

Blade: The Series is one of the few Spike TV shows to get canceled while having great ratings. The show, which starred Onyx rapper Sticky Fingaz in the title role, was a bit too much financially for the network. The series, which was dropped after 13 episodes, takes place right after the 2004 film Blade:Trinity.

Night Man

Through a 1994 acquisition of Malibu Comics, Night Man is technically a part of Marvel. The show is probably best known by many for its jazzy intro. With two seasons under its belt, the show was cancelled in 1999. Donald Trump and Jerry Springer both made cameo appearances on the program.
