As much as I like superhero TV shows and movies, I wish I had better news about this one.
The NBC series The Cape is probably on it's last legs.
NBC cut the number of episodes to be aired from thirteen to ten as a result of low ratings, so that's probably the shows death knell.
However you can still check out episodes on Hulu if you want to see what the show is about.
Oh yeah, the reason I'm even talking about this....
The Cape may be low on ratings, but it's high on beautiful women.
Summer Glau as Orwell
Of course if you like Sci Fi at all (and even if you dont really) you know who Summer Glau is.
Summer was on one of my favorite TV shows ever Firefly (and the subsequent Serenity) and was also on Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles (which I think may have gotten better in the season it didnt get). She even showed up on Dollhouse.
After three failures I was really hoping The Cape would do well for Summer.
On The Cape, Summer plays The Cape's sidekick (kinda) Orwell who's an investigative blogger that's declared war on the crimelord of Palm City, Chess.
Jennifer Ferrin as Dana Thompson-Faraday
Next up is the beautiful Jennifer Ferrin as Dana Thompson-Faraday.
Kinda like Summer, Jennifer hasnt had the best of luck with TV shows.
She played played Detective Sam Tyler's mother in the US version of Life On Mars.
But she has done better on daytime TV, getting two Emmy nominations for her role of Jennifer Munson Kasnoff Donovan on As the World Turns.
On The Cape, she plays The Cape's (Vince Faraday) wife who works in the public defender's office.
Izabella Miko as Raia
Someone that doesnt get a lot of screen time is Izabella Miko as Raia.
This Polish-born actress, dancer (like Summer she is trained in Ballet) and environmentalist appeared on three episodes of Deadwood, and made her acting debut in 2004's Coyote Ugly.
On the Cape Raia is the acrobat in Max Malini's circus and the "Carnival of Crime".

In the last entry, we did Indira Varma as Ilsa Pucci, one of the new ladies on Fox's Human Target.
This time we have Janet Montgomery as Ames.
Ames is a thief, who is supposed to be able to blend into any situation.
But it seems like a lot of the time, that blending in consists of stripping down to her underwear.
Though I haven't heard a lot of male fans complaining about that.
Ames' character is known to Winston, who evidently had a run in or two with her from his days on the police force.
The lovely lady that plays Ames is English film and TV actress Janet Montgomery.
Janet was born on October 29th, 1985 in Bournemouth, Dorset, UK.
Which puts her in the category of actors and actresses that I never dreamed of having an accent like Hugh Laurie (when I first saw House I had no idea he was British), Damian Lewis (Life) Jamie Bamber (Lee Adama on Battlestar Galactica) and Ryan Kwanten (Jason Stackhouse on True Blood).
Yes I was born and raised in the US and had no idea any of them were "foreigners".
Anyway, Janet has appeared in the TV series Entourage and the films The Hills Run Red, Wrong Turn 3: Left for Dead and Black Swan among others.
