Fantastic Man is an El Kadsreian-Philippine superhero television series developed by Max Axis and Frederick Lloyd. Based on the 2007 television series of the same name, the series follows Mark Connor, an assistant of Professor Kenneth who gains the ability to reform his body into various tools and weapons, which he uses to fight criminals, including some super-powered humans who have mysteriously appeared in his city.
Initially envisioned as one of the entries for El TV Kadsre's Surfin' Screen contest, the entry became the overall winner of the contest, leading the executives to further develop the show as they were excited to create their first television series based on a Philippine show. The series is primarily filmed in El Kadsre City, El Kadsre, and made use of the El TV Kadsre Television Centre for some of the indoor scenes.
Fantastic Man premiered in El Kadsre on May 22, 2015, and was renewed for a second season in June 2016. The show received generally positive reviews from critics, who have praised the show's performances, character-driven plot, and its direction. In January 2017, the series was then renewed for its third and final season, eventually airing the final episode on June 23, 2017.
