In "The Friend" chapter of the science fiction film The Creator (2023), a black-and-white superhero TV show or movie is shown on a screen in Drew's office. The show seems to be from around the 60s, judging by the vintage style. In this scene of the show, a male costumed character battles a female costumed character in hand-to-hand combat.
