Kurt Busiek's Astro City is one of my all time favourite Comic series.
Of all of them, The story of The Tarnished Angel is by far my favourite. It tells the story of Carl Donewicz AKA the Steel-Jacketed Man AKA Steel Jack, A low level thug who gets transformed into a man of living metal - Think of The X-Man Collosuss, but unable to turn off his power.

Steel Jack is a powerhouse of 800 pounds, gifted with steel skin and super strength. Upon his release from prison he decides to re-form and become a regular citizen, but someone is murdering his old colleagues so its up to him to find out, as his buddy once said, "well you ain't that smart, but you sure are hard to kill, and in this business thats gotta count!"

A great crime drama set in the world of super powered criminals, a must read for any comics fan.

I think all of the Astro City Characters should be made into marvel legends - here is my interpretation of Carl in his prime, I plan to also make new versions of The Confessor and Samaratin too.

Reciepe
WWE Undertaker torso
WWE MVP Legs
Head - Some wwe wrestler.
A new coat of paint - All of these parts were left overs in my fodder bin, its amazing what can be made with left overs...

I would agree but if it came to t.v. it would involve teen angst. I think writers for t.v. love to add teen angst to anything that would be cool on its own. Smallville for example..

thanks mate, he's Astro City's version of Colossus, I recommend picking up the Trade Paper Back The Tarnished Angel. A great story!
