Another superhero gone unnoticed!

I was only 3 when this came out. I couldn't help but figuring out who this character is. This character is a cross between "Iron Man" and " The Six Million Dollar Man" . Here you have a physics teacher who thwart a bank robbery while giving his student a loan. Later on , the same student shows not only his gratitude, but his concern of his teacher's safety following the robber's arrest. Well two things go bad for the professor: His assistant gets blown away in a car bomb meant for the professor, then another goon crippled him forcing him to be silent. He was, only for a few days. He would later continue on the project that the assistant was working on for a bigger cause: Learning to walk again. He would gather all the notes, all the information, and all the plans to create a suit that will help him walk again. Not only that, make him invulnerable as well. He is known as Exo-Man. A man in a suit of armor that can make him mobile, strong, and durable. This could make Tony Stark, jealous. It's a shame that it didn't take off as a sci-fi show. It would have lasted a few seasons. With a good cast, and stars to boot, it wasn't given a chance. If there is a remake, it can reach out to those who a wheelchair bound. This is positive energy here. Show this movie more often, please. 2.5 out of 5 stars
