Re: Would a 6 million dollar man (Bionic Man-type) reboot work now?)

If we count overseas material, one could argue "Ghost in the Shell" falls under this conceptual umbrella. Major Motoko Kusanagi is a full conversion cyborg; little more than her brain and part of her spinal column remains. Sometimes she has existential doubts if there is even that much left since she can't exactly examine those tissues first hand. She too works for an agency that handles covert missions. And while we don't see her throwing around cars (though she once "anchored" an escaping helicopter), she is often depicted leaping about, obtaining altitudes that would make Steve Austin envious.

Sincerely,

Bill
