Blonde-haired, blue-eyed Judson Scott was Bennu of the Golden Light, an ancient extraterrestrial who was awakened from his sleeping place in Peru when an archaeological expedition exploring ancient Incan ruins uncovered his casket.

Bennu was an enlightened being who was socially responsible, kind, non-violent and environmentally aware.

He had special abilities like telekinesis, astral projection and the power to levitate.

His strength and powers were given to him or made stronger by the special Phoenix amulet he wore which took its power from the sun.

Bennu’s main quest was to find his mate, Mira, who came from the planet Eldebran, some 40,000 years earlier. Without her, he had no clue what his mission on earth was.

Richard Lynch played Justin Preminger, a man who wanted to capture Bennu.

The Phoenix ran on ABC in March and April 1982. Nine episodes were planned, but only four were ever filmed, along with a 90-minute pilot movie.
