Roughly 75 years after she made her comics debut, Wonder Woman’s finally getting her shot at solo big-screen glory — and if the early reviews are any indication, the Amazonian’s self-titled debut is not only a much-needed shot in the arm for the DC Extended Universe, but a whooping good time for action fans of all ages. Of course, decades before the Wonder Woman movie, the character had her own TV series, which got us thinking about all the other superheroes who started out in live action on the small screen before making the jump into theaters. Grab your decoder rings, true believers… it’s time for Total Recall!
