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!
Hey! The episode where he breaks his pencil during his final exam would be intense!
