Western Animation: Birdman
Before he became a defense lawyer, Birdman was the headliner of Birdman and the Galaxy Trio, part of Hanna-Barbera's brief Super Hero cycle in the mid-1960s.

Birdman is a Winged Humanoid that can fly, shoot solar rays from his fists and project "solar shields" to defend himself against attacks. He was recruited by a top-secret government agency, Inter-Nation Security. Together with his eagle companion, Avenger, They Fight Crime wherever he is sent by his superior, Falcon-7. Birdman had one weakness: He gradually lost his strength if he is away from direct sunlight for an extended period. The villains often exploited this by capturing Birdman and keeping him in a poorly lighted room.

The Galaxy Trio, stars of the backup segment, consisted of Vapor Man, who could turn his body into any kind of gas; Meteor Man, who could enlarge his fists or any other part of his body, and Gravity Girl, who could make people and objects seem lighter or heavier. Together, They Fight Crime and patrol space in their cruiser Condor One maintaining order working for his superior, the Chief of the Galactic Patrol law enforcement agency.
