Bullshit Rumor Friday: Adam Strange series coming to HBO!

This rumor is 100% made up, untrue, total bullshit. It's just something we think would be AWESOME!
Adam Strange is an archeologist suddenly teleported from Peru, Earth to the fictional planet Rann through a "Zeta-Beam". Upon his arrival, he is attacked by one of the planet's predators and rescued by a blue-haired woman called Alanna. She takes him to her father Sardath, who explains that the Zeta-Beam was transmitted at Earth in the hopes that whatever form of intelligent life lived there would trace it back to Rann, and theorizes that in the 4.3 years it takes the Zeta-Beam to reach earth, it was altered by space radiation into a transportation beam. 

Called on to protect the planet from extraterrestrial threats using Rann's technology, Strange grew to care for the planet and its inhabitants, especially Alanna. Eventually, the effects of the beam wore off, automatically returning Strange to Earth at the exact point of departure, but not before Sardath had given him a schedule of beam firings allowing him to periodically return to the planet. Using mathematical calculations, he was able to determine the exact time and locations the Zeta-Beams would arrive at. He travels the world and intercepts them, to defend Rann and be with Alanna!

Adam Strange was created Julius Schwartz with a costume designed by Murphy Anderson in 1958.

That would be cool, every ep could start with him fighting through some dangerous environment to get to the beam them *BAM* title card as the beam hits him.

That would be a sweet opener!

This type of show has so many possibilities for complexity. While he's a hero on an alien world - he could be a wanted man on Earth etc.
