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.
