‘Greatest American Hero’ Returns at SDCC
There are more than a few mysterious elements coming up at Comic-Con this week, and one of the big question marks hovers over the return of Greatest American Hero, the goofy superhero TV show from the ’80s.
Sounds like a comic book series is in the works, if not more. According to a press release (check it after the jump), a whole slate of original stars will be on hand in San Diego. There’s also a mysterious teaser video posted after the jump — which seems to be scaled far too large for embedding on most websites.
Join the original cast of the "Greatest American Hero" television series on Thursday, July 24 at 12:30-1:30pm in Room 7AB at the 2008 Comic-Con Convention in San Diego.
After twenty-five years, this beloved cult series is being re-introduced to the world as a comic book series. In addition, two special announcements will be made regarding the franchise.
A video taped introduction from the show’s legendary creator STEPHEN J. CANNEL kicks off the panel including a remark about how "The Greatest American Hero" is his best-selling series of all time.

* WILLIAM KATT
* CONNIE SELLECCA
* ROBERT CULP
* DENNIS "DANGER" MADALONE -Stuntman
