    Changing the lead of a character that was always male, to female, doesn't work. Just look at Star Trek Voyager.

    Plus they already tried and failed to do it once. Voyager wasn't bad. Though a female will look hotter in spandex. I'll wait till I see the pilot before I comment.

    There was a comic book that came out not too long ago, I read the first issue, but I don't remember the second ever coming out.

    I loved the simplistic story:
    Man finds suit.
    Man loses instructions
    Man becomes the clumsiest superhero ever.

    it is what any hero's early years should have been.

    Not only that, but they reveresed the dynamic of the apt hero with his inept civilian identity. He was a good teacher with a good life and fiance who was a terribly maladjusted totally unconfident superhero, which was a really fresh take on the superhero/alterego relationship.

    I can't see this relaunch (with the student with the "clone" suit) working at all.
