Chris G. Williams Beware: I mix tech and personal interests here.

Seems like thanks to the obvious success of Smallville, we'll be getting some new superhero shows in the Fall or 1st Q 2007.

There's this one, on NBC... (Jan 2007)

Heroes is a serial saga about people all over the world discovering that they have superpowers and trying to deal with how this change affects their lives. The relatable superheroes include Peter Petrelli, a 30-year-old male nurse who believes can fly, Diego Medina, a 28-year-old junkie who has the ability to paint images of the future when he is high, Niki Sanders, a 33-year-old Las Vegas showgirl who can do incredible things with mirrors, Hiro Makamura, a 24-year-old Japanese comic-book geek who literally makes time stand still, D.L. Hawkins, a 31-year-old inmate who can transport himself through walls, and Claire Bennet, 17-year-old cheerleader who defies death at every turn. Not only are they discovering what having superpowers means to them but also the larger picture of where their superpowers come from. Eventually their superpowers draw them together when they try to evade the series' antagonist who wants to harness their super-DNA for himself. The series will star Greg Grunberg (Alias), Leonard Roberts (Buffy the Vampire Slayer), Milo Ventimiglia (Gilmore Girls), and Hayden Panettiere (Ally McBeal, Guiding Light). Tim Kring (Crossing Jordan, Chicago Hope) is the series' creator. The pilot is set to be directed by Dave Semel (American Dreams, Buffy, the Vampire Slayer, Beverly Hills, 90210) Heroes will be produced by NBC/Universal/Tailwind.
 
Annnd this one, on the newly combined WB/UPN network... (Sept. 2006)
 
Aquaman, a small-screen take on the DC Comics hero in the vein of Smallville, from the same producers. Justin Hartley (previously of Passions) plays Arthur Curry, the twentysomething proprietor of a dive shop who's actually the lost prince of Atlantis. Co-stars Lou Diamond Philips and Ving Rhames.
