Super Force is a syndicated TV series detailing the exploits of Zachery Stone (Ken Olandt), an ex-astronaut who becomes a justice-dealing vigilante after he is equipped with the eponymous mechanical supersuit. He is assisted in his efforts by technician F.X. Spinner (Larry B. Scott), and the voice of Patrick Macnee, who plays the computer simulation of E.B. Hungerford, a murdered scientist. Former porn star Ginger Lynn Allen has a reoccurring role as Stone's sort-of girlfriend. The show is very, very cheesy, but managed to hang around for two seasons in the early 1990s.


  • Attractive Bent-Gender: A deranged kidnapper is abducting beautiful women from his guess-your-age carnival booth in the bizarrely titled episode "Yo! Super Force!". F.X. has to disguise himself as a woman to be a decoy so they can find out where he's taking his victims.
  • Big Bad: Played by G. Gordon Liddy of Watergate fame.
  • Clothes Make the Superman: The super-suit used is a prototype spacesuit, retrofitted for urban assault. In fact, in the first episode, the hero wears an unmodified (though futuristic) space suit as a vigilante.
  • The End Is Nigh: Parodied (maybe inverted) in the pilot. While Zach is walking around the city, he comes upon a man holding a sign reading "Repent! The world will never end!"
  • Living Doll Collector: The episode "Yo! Super Force!" features a deranged man who kidnaps women, puts them in suspended animation, and arranges them on display stands in a private museum in order to cope with the death of his wife.
  • Mind-Control Device: A whole plethora of them.
  • Powered Armor: Zach's spacesuit, modified to see use in combat. In the second season, he gets inherent superpowers, meaning there are a bunch of episodes where he doesn't bother using the suit at all.
  • Shout-Out: MacGyver Industries, really?
  • Virtual Ghost: The computer based on E.B. Hungerford.
