ABC and Marvel Entertainment are in the early stages of developing a potential live-action "Incredible Hulk" television series for next season, reported. ABC and Marvel are both owned by the same parent company, Disney.

The character enjoyed a successful run from 1978-1982 on CBS, with bodybuilder Lou Ferrigno in green body paint as the walking anger-management issue. The late Bill Bixby played the monster's mild-mannered alter-ego, Dr. David Banner (Bruce Banner in the comics). Ferrigno is still a fan favorite and fixture on the comic book convention circuit all these years later.

"Actually, I think the potential for a successful Hulk TV show is greater now than ever," says Stan Lee, who created the character for Marvel with Jack Kirby in 1962. "For one thing, think of the sensational special effects available to us now, plus the fact that ol' green skin is known and loved world-wide. Factor in a cameo by me and how can it miss?"

But even with cutting-edge special effects, the character has had mixed success on the big screen. Actor Mark Ruffalo, with a healthy dollop of CGI, plays the Hulk in 2012ís "The Avengers" movie after replacing Ed Norton, who in turn replaced Eric Bana, in successive movies.

The Hulk is just the latest superhero patrolling the small screen. Warner Bros. reportedly is developing a "Wonder Woman" TV show with David E. Kelley.

"There are so many superhero shows on now," says Hercules, the TV editor for Ain't It Cool News. "Never mind they've got [NBC's] 'The Cape' coming, they've got two superhero shows in development at the SyFy Channel. The Cartoon Network has 'Tower Prep.' You've got 'Smallville' on the CW Network, and 'No Ordinary Family' on ABC.

"There's just a huge onslaught of this kind of project."
