Super Action Matinee: Defenders of the Earth

Well, not really. They weren't those yet. Lets rewind the clock about 50-40 years before that 80s cartoon to a golden era where your Saturday mornings were spent at the cinema! Welcome to the Super Action Matinee! Where every Saturday and Sunday we'll put out instalments of six serialized matinee movies based of comic book properties. Saturdays will be devoted to Batman, Superman & Captain Marvel (Shazam!), whilst Sundays will focus on a wider range. I think the best way to introduce our episode ones is to return to Defenders of the Earth:

Out of the sky, his rockets ignite, Jets into battle, flying faster than light! Flash Gordon!

Lord of the Jungle, the hero who stalks, The beasts call him brother, the ghost who walks! Phantom!

Master of magical spells and illusion, Enemies crumble in fear and confusion! Mandrake!

And that's it for now. Stay tuned for Saturday for some wartime DC comics action, and then next Sunday for episode 2 of each of the above.
