This article is about a/an adaptation in Choudenshi Bioman.


Bio-Man was a television pilot for an American adaptation of the Super Sentai series, Choudenshi Bioman, produced by Haim Saban in 1986. Although it didn't result in a series, Saban would later successfully adapt Kyoryu Sentai Zyuranger in 1993, starting the Power Rangers franchise.

Though most claim that Bio-Man was a new Americanized dub, there are also claims that Bio-Man was an adaptation, much like Power Rangers.

Story

"Bio-Man" is a "space adventure series" about five kids with identical "bio-rhythms" who defend Earth against Zadar's attacks, an evil half-human, half-robot villain who wants to conquer the world. [1]

Casting

Actor Mark Dacascos lists and acknowledges his role as Victor Lee, the Red Ranger from Bio-Man. [2] Miguel Núñez Jr. also allegedly claims that he portrayed Zack Taylor but as a Green Ranger. [3]

Notes
