Maybe I imagined it, but I recall a show from the late 70's or early 80's for the life of me I can't remember what it was called. It was a superhero show of sorts. I went like this: This dude got struck by lightning and became endowed with strength/powers, etc. The thing was, he had to recharge his body periodically in this big glass tube thing or he'd die(I think). I don't think it lasted all that long and I sure as heck don't remember who was in it, if anyone notable. Ring a bell with anyone?
