Re: Replacing Smallville...

How about Peter Parker: The High School Years? Follow the adventures of nerd, weakling, and social outcast Peter Parker as he... umm... studies, doesn't get invited to parties, dotes on his elderly aunt and uncle, worships Liz Allan from afar but gets nowhere with her, and does nothing even remotely heroic or dangerous. Ohh, the drama!

Or Barry Allen before the lightning bolt -- the adventures of an ordinary crime lab scientist who's always late for everything!

Diana before Wonder Woman -- every week, she works out, rides horses, reads ancient scrolls, hangs out with her Amazon sisters, and enjoys the unbroken peace and tranquillity of Themiscyra, facing no peril of any kind! (Although if you threw in some lesbian romance and a lot of bathing scenes, that might work...)
