if you grew up in the mid 90's you might have caught a time when TV wasn't filled with reality TV, but actual stories.

MANTIS was one of my fav shows back in the days
check it out it's on HULU!

here's the 1st part of the pilot



Someone
M.A.N.T.I.S. is a TV series that aired for one season on the FOX Network between August 1994 and March 1995. (Two unaired episodes were broadcast as part of a Sci-Fi Channel marathon in September 1997.) The original two-hour TV pilot was produced by Sam Raimi and developed by Sam Hamm. It starred actor Carl Lumbly. The show was unique, inasmuch as it depicted an African-American superhero.

Ahh, the link doesn't stream in my country…

Wasn't that the show about a guy in a wheelchair that invented a suit that allowed him not only to walk, but actually kick asses?

Never catched a single episode, but the suit was cool.

FOX has killed a lot of wonderful things. Some of them I'm still pretty sore about.

I do remember MANTIS. But I don't think I saw enough to get hooked. I remember he wouldn't use guns because guns are what crippled him in the first place. Some of it was kind of neat, but other parts made it feel like a cheap alternative to Batman.

i liked the pilot's costume with the suit and tie.

one of batman's feature is his physical ability…the mantis is handicapped.
