Never been a fan of the "over-the-top" tech "spandex" suits like this.

I personally prefer the Ironman type approach to those things.

Skyman is kinda a lame name, but he looks awesome, might check this out.

He reminds me of a pulp hero for some reason.

He died and this is his replacement. I liked the old skyman suit better, this is bland.

Hopefully this series last for awhile.
