My Hero is a British television sitcom, written and created by Paul Mendelson, that broadcast for six series on the BBC between 2000 and 2006. The series follows the everyday adventures of a dim-witted Ultronian superhero known as "Thermoman", portrayed by Ardal O'Hanlon, and his human wife, Janet, played by Emily Joyce. "Thermoman" is a multi-powered superhero who originates from the planet Ultron. In an attempt to do his best to fit in with life on earth, he creates the human alias of George Sunday. However, due to his unfamiliarity with human life, his antics usually lead to many misunderstandings. Although Thermoman is intrinsically very intelligent, his problem understanding earthly customs makes him look like an idiot to people who don't know who he really is.
