How about a double-dose of retro Bionic goodness?

Back in the day, I used to read a kid's magazine called Dynamite. It was published by Scholastic Inc. from 1974 until 1992. Dynamite was incredibly popular, and inspired two other magazines for Scholastic I never cared for called Wow and Bananas. Interestingly, 109 issues were edited by Jane Stine, wife of children's author R. L. Stine who writes the kids horror stories Goosebumps.

I came across two covers from the groovy retro site Space 1970 featuring Steve Austin (Lee Majors) and Jamie Summers (Lindsay Wagner).

Issue #8 (February 1975) had a cover "Inside The Six Million Dollar Man" featuring Lee Majors.

Issue #29 (November 1976) had the cover "The Six Million Dollar Man vs. The Bionic Woman!" Featuring Lee Majors and Lindsay Wagner.

I never noticed both actor's first names start with L.

Who do you think would win the wrestling match? Do you remember the shows?

I think it would be a draw, although she might win since her parts are newer and more updated.
Don't laugh, but I used to get Dynamite magazine!

Steve Austin. He would cheat and bust out the Stunner. And then toss back a few beers.

He seems like that kind of guy Steve. Do whatever needs to be done

Awesome Alex. I'm glad I'm not the only one
