On this day in 1974, the popularity of the Six Million Dollar Man, starring Lee Majors as Steve Austin, the world’s first bionic man, inspires a superhero trend in the late 1970s, which spawns shows like Wonder Woman in 1976 and The Incredible Hulk in 1978. The show also launched a spin-off, The Bionic Woman, in 1975. The bionic man and bionic woman were reunited in two specials, “Bionic Showdown” in 1989 and “Bionic Ever After” in 1994.
