TV: Captain Nice



Nice guys do finish last. NBC's Captain Nice failed to catch the fumes of Batmania in 1967. The show was created by the same guys that made Get Smart. The show lasted only 15 episodes.

Carter Nash was a chemist in a police department who discovered a liquid which could turn him into Captain Nice, an odd sort of superhero: very shy and dominated by his mother. Captain Nice flew (he feared heights) in his tattered leotards, fighting bad guys because his mother told him to do so.


The artwork seen at the beginning of the TV promo was created by comic book artist Jack Kirby.
