As a child of the 70's I was a big fan of all things Bionic Man. Thinking back on it, I actually think he was the ultimate 70's superhero. . .a creation of science with the soul of a man. I was glad to see that this series kept the story in the 70's. I have the modern "reboot" series and it just doesn't have the same feel. Science today is taken for granted. I don't mean to make myself sound old, but at that time, Astronauts were still the great American Hero. The moon landings were still fresh in the collective memory. The world was on the edge of major change in technology. A modern Bionic man is just one high tech thing among many. But in the 70's Steve Austin wasn't just some t.v. character. . .he was OUR hero for OUR time.
So. . .did this recent (the last issue came out just a couple months ago, as of this writing) 70's Six Million Dollar Man mini hold up to the memory of that uniquely 70's superhero?
Yes and no.
