Superhuman Samurai Syber-Squad

Summary
Superhuman Samurai Syber-Squad (or, in short, SSSS) is an American television series. It was produced by Tsuburaya Productions, Ultracom Inc. and DIC Productions, L.P., with distribution by All American Television, and ran for a duration of 53 episodes from September 12, 1994 to April 11, 1995 in syndication, as well as on ABC. It was an adaptation of the Japanese tokusatsu series Gridman the Hyper Agent. "The evil Kilokahn lives inside computer circuits! With the help of Malcolm Frink, he creates Mega-Virus Monsters to attack electronic systems! Meanwhile, a freak accident turns Sam Collins into Servo. His friends join forces in their samurized attack vehicles. Together, they transform into...the Superhuman Samurai Syber-Squad!" High school student Sam Collins, the head of a band known as Team Samurai, is zapped during a recording session by a power surge and disappears, only to return seconds later with a strange device attached to his wrist which, at the time, is unremovable. Later after his friends, Amp, Sydney, and Tanker, leave, one of his video game programs, dubbed Servo, is subject to a power surge and zaps Sam again just after he has remarked "Cool battle armor!" - this time he is pulled into the digital world and transformed into his creation. As Servo, he roams the digital world and fights monsters dubbed Mega-Viruses which are capable of attacking any device on the electrical grid (including the grid itself), Internet or telephone network, usually having real-life consequences far beyond what any standard computer virus would be capable of achieving. Meanwhile, Malcolm Frink, another student from Sam's school, is designing monsters on his home computer when Kilokahn, an escaped military artificial-intelligence program that was presumed destroyed in the power surge, visits him via his computer screen and strikes a Faustian deal with him, transforming his digital monster into a Mega-Virus. Sam, now as Servo, must enter the digital world and stop Malcolm's and Kilokahn's Mega-Viruses.
