Ugh.  I SO would have loved if they just did the ACTUAL concept of the original comic!  There have been a lot of movies and TV shows that touched on that "teacher returns to his old school to clean things up" concept--but the super-hero twist would have been great!  And that his powers were only mechanical would have helped keep the show grounded and real.

Instead, they're going for the "second phase" of the hero--middle-aged with legacy super-powered children...a bad trend that the comics did away with five years ago.

And then they gave him Blackbolt's costume.  So.  Much.  Wrong.

Sure!  That would make a great show!  That was a premise inherent to the character.  This new premise ("old super-hero comes out of retirement") is generic and could be tacked onto anybody.
