Comic-Con 2015: The Return of Electra Woman and Dyna Girl

Any child of the Seventies remembers Sid and Marty Kroft and their imaginative control of Saturday morning live action television. H.R. Pufnstuf, The Bugaloos, Sigmund & the Sea Monsters… the scope of the worlds they created was amazing.

And they didn’t leave the world of superheroes alone. No, they gave us two spandex-clad heroines: Electra Woman and Dyna Girl, with their driving disco beat theme and electro-powered wonderful Electracom toys.

So when news of a new attempt to reboot EW&DG started getting some buzz, especially with the internet goddesses Grace Helbig and Hannah Hart attached to the main roles, well it was feeling a little too good to be true.

Yes, I marked my calendar for their signing at the Legendary booth, and was a little disappointed that they didn’t arrive in costume. But who can stay upset when faced with two so charming and happy people? Since then we’ve gotten more teaser footage along with action scenes we handn’t seen before Comic-Con!
