"Xena, a mighty warrior and healer. She has come to regret the harm she caused and, with her companion Gabrielle, now travels the countryside seeking adventure and fighting the forces of evil."
In ancient Greece, a time of mythical legends. Xena was a mighty female warrior, Xena once left her village and led a army of outlaws that terrorized the lands, and was a former enemy of the legendary hero Hercules. Xena began to regret what she had done and embarked on a quest for redemption. Joined by a young woman named Gabrille, Xena travels across the lands as she battles forces of evil, and would often do battle with her evil foes, the ruthless and charming Ares and Callisto, a warrior woman out to get her revenge on Xena for the death of her family and burning her village when she was a child. And Xena and Gabrille were on occasions joined by trusted friends wannabe warrior, Joxer and thief Autolycus. Seeking adventure and helping people, Xena's courage will change the world. Xena was raised as the daughter of Cyrene and Atrius, though the episode The Furies raised the possibility that Ares, god of war, might be Xena's biological father. She had two (half)-brothers: Toris, her elder brother, and Lyceus, the youngest of the three. Xena mentioned to Iolaus she had a third brother, but there was no further elaboration on the character. Xena believed that her "father", Atrius, abandoned the family when Xena was young, but later learned that Cyrene killed him to prevent him from murdering Xena. Xena had a normal early life. She was born and raised in Amphipolis, a fairly large village in Thrace. She had a boisterous relationship with her brothers, and helped her mother in the family tavern. Xena's first love was Petracles. They were engaged to be married, but Petracles left her to take up the life of a warlord. Once again abandoned by an important man in her life, Xena developed a bitterness toward men, and a distaste for close relationships in general.

For the rest of the '90s, she appeared in forgettable films and horrible made-for-TV movies, but somehow remained in public view due to her frequent arrests, cameo appearances, turbulent romantic life, and tendency to get into fights with celebrities. In 1998, she found a place for herself as the witch Prue Halliwell on the TV series Charmed, with fellow grown-up child stars Alyssa Milano and Holly Marie Combs as her witch sisters.

Bruce Lee (Lee Hsiao Lung), the son of a famous Chinese opera singer, born in San Fransisco in November 1940. He moved to Hong Kong when he became a child star in the growing Eastern film industry. The first film he made was The birth of Mankind and his last film which is uncompleted during the time of his death in 1973 was called Game of Death. He was a loner and always getting himself into fights, with this he looked towards Kung Fu as a way of disciplining himself. The famous Yip Men taught Bruce his basic skills, but it was not long before he was mastering the master. Yip Men was acknowledged to be one of the greatest authorities on the subject of Wing Chun a branch of the Chinese Martial Arts. Bruce mastered this before advancing to his own style of Jeet Kune Do. At the age of 19 Bruce left Hong Kong to study degree in philosophy at the University of Washington in America. It was that time that he took a waiter's job and began to teach some of his skills to students who would pay. Some of the Japanese schools in the Seattle area tried to force Bruce out, and there was many confrontations and duels fought for Bruce to remain. He met his wife Linda at the University he was studying. His Martial Arts school prosper and he soon graduated.
He gained some small roles in Hollywood films - Marlowe- etc, and some major stars were begging to be students of the Little Dragon. James Coburn, Steve McQueen and Lee Marvin to name but a few. He regularly gave displays at exhibitions, and it was during one of these exhibitions that he was spotted by a producer and signed up to do The Green Hornet series. The series was quite successful in the States - but was a huge hit in Hong Kong. He visited Hong Kong in 1968 and he was overwhelmed by the attention he received from the people he had left.
He once said on a radio program if the price was right he would do a movie for the Chinese audiences. He returned to the States and completed some episodes of Longstreet. He began writing his book on Jeet Kune Do at roughly the same time. Back in Hong Kong producers were desperate to sign Bruce for a Martial Arts film, and it was Raymond Chow the head of Golden Harvest who produced The Big Boss. The rest as they say is history. Lee is best remembered for his presentation of Chinese martial arts to the non-Chinese world. His films, especially the Hollywood-produced Enter the Dragon, elevated the traditional Hong Kong martial arts film to a new level of popularity and acclaim, and sparked the first major surge of interest in Chinese martial arts in the West. The direction and tone of his films changed and influenced martial arts and martial arts films in Hong Kong, China, and the rest of the world. Lee became an iconic figure particularly to Chinese, as he portrayed Chinese national pride and Chinese nationalism in his movies. Many see Lee as a model blueprint for acquiring a strong and efficient body, as well as developing a mastery of martial arts and hand to hand combat skills.

The Sentinel, a Canadian-produced television series that is broadcasted on UPN in the United States. The series star airing last 1996 to 1999, that was premiered on March 20, 1996 and ran for 65 episodes (three and a half seasons). The story focuses on Jim Ellison, a U.S. Army Ranger that spent 18 months in the Peruvian jungle after his unit are killed. During that time, he developed hyperactive senses that came five years later, when he was a detective in Cascade PD's Major Crimes Department. When he goes to the hospital to see a doctor, he finds instead Blair Sandburg, an anthropologist from Rainier University who tells him that he's a Sentinel. In ancient tribes, Sentinels protected the village.
For Jim, Cascade is his village. Blair has been studying Sentinel mythology for years, but he never found before a true Sentinel (a person with all five senses enhanced). Blair helps Jim control his senses and joins Jim as police observer. To the surprise of many people, this unlikely partnership works and together they fight against crime in the streets of Cascade. Jim's hyperactive senses mean he can see beyond what others see, even in the dark, and with more detail; hear sounds that are farther than normal range or too low for anybody else; sense what nobody else can with taste, touch and smell, in short becoming a walking forensic lab. But Jim's powers have a drawback: if he concentrates too strongly in one sense, he could "zone out", a kind of catatonic state. Part of Blair's job is preventing the zone outs. The only person who knows Jim's secret, apart from Blair, is his captain and friend, Simon Banks, and in the last half season, so does Megan Connor.

Viacom also gave him a directing contract in his third and final season.
Episode written by Gerard, New York Post television critic, David Bianculli said, "Scripts have begun to stress character and plot above special effects using different gimmicks. In terms of the sensibilities of the series to date, the results are somewhat super. The series, as whole, like Star Trek: The Next Generation, is a first run syndicated series worth noting and enjoying." One episode written by Gerard, entitled Wish for Armageddon was the only episode that Viacom submitted for Emmy Award consideration. The Adventures of Superboy celebrated the completion of its 100th episode in August of 1991.

The character originally was created without permission from Superman's original writer, Jerry Siegel, a fact which increased an already-growing unfriendly relationship between him and the publisher.
