No. 53 – The Six Million Dollar Man

M.A.C.H.1 written by Pat Mills and drawn by Enio Legisamòn for prog 1 vs. ABC’s The Six Million Dollar Man played by Lee Majors

Claimed by former 2000 AD art editor, Doug Church, to be the inspiration for M.A.C.H.1 [Man Activated by Compu-puncture Hyperpower], Col. Steve Austin, the main character of The Six Million Dollar Man TV series, which ran from 1973–1978 (101 episodes plus six TV movies), was himself based on the character of the same name from Martin Caidin’s 1972 best-seller Cyborg (Arbor House).
