**************

DCRJ's sidenotes: Jon Avila looks like Brandon Routh (the guy who played Superman) in many ways but the costume reminded me of a fumbling super hero on TV in 1980 called 'The Greatest American Hero' starring William Katt.

William Katt rose to prominence when he played the Sundance Kid in 'Butch and Sundance: The Early Years' because of his similar looks with Robert Redford (played Sundance Kid with Paul Newman in 1968). 'The Greatest American Hero' was aired on GMA Network way back in 1980, GMA's slogan then was 'Where You Belong'. I also remember William Katt visited the studio of the then-small GMA network in 1980 on Student Canteen, Bobby Ledesma, co-host, said to Katt 'I thought you would come over here crashing into the walls of our studio'
