irdman didn't have time for a civilian identity. His superhero exploits were limited to two short segments, between six and seven minutes in length, that played before and after a Galaxy Trio segment in the half-hour Saturday morning show Birdman and the Galaxy Trio. With a cry of "Birrrrdman!" and powers derived from the sun, none of the super-villains, evil aliens or other assorted criminals Birdman faced were a match for him.

 

Partnered with his eagle sidekick Avenger, Birdman maintained a secret headquarters inside an inactive volcano, where he received instructions in the form of video transmissions from an eye patch wearing agent called Falcon 7. In a few episodes he teamed up with Birdboy, a youth he rescued and inadvertently gave powers similar to his own while attempting to keep him alive.

 

Birdman had wings and could fly, but his other powers depended on exposure to the sun. Too long without sunlight and his powers faded or were quickly depleted, but when everything was functioning properly the solar rays he fired from his fists and the shield he formed from solar power were more than a match for any foe. For emergency situations Birdman also kept a few solar energy storage batteries back at the lair.

 

Once Birdman’s active crime fighting days were over, he was revived for the 2001 superhero spoof, Harvey Birdman: Attorney at Law. There he was reunited with Birdboy as well as many of the villains who had appeared in the Birdman series.
