"Almost 40 years on, 'The Avengers' remains Britain's most popular exported serial ever, with sales to 120 countries....Its fan sites choke the Internet, Mrs. Peel cat suits (called Emmapeelers) and Steed T-shirts turn up in specialty shops and an 'Avengers' movie will soon saunter to the big screen, with Uma Thurman in the zippered leotard, Ralph Fiennes in the bowler hat."
