Powerless Batman's Cousin

Powerless Teaser: Can Batman's Cousin Protect Us Ordinary Folk?

The next best thing to Bruce Wayne is… Van Wayne?

A new teaser for NBC’s upcoming DC Comics comedy Powerless introduces Batman’s cousin (played by Suburgatory/Firefly vet Alan Tudyk) as the leader of Wayne Security.

While Bruce Wayne fights to keep Gotham safe, Van’s company invents ways to protect everyday people from being injured during dangerous superhero battles — with mixed results.

“Our products are powerless,” the not-so-super Wayne declares to his employees. So much for that motto on the wall about changing the world. “That came with the office,” Van reveals. “This used to be a diaper company.”

Plus, we learn that Van enjoys hanging up large pictures of himself, and referring to his more famous cousin as “B Dubs” during their phone calls. Guess we can see where all the charm in this family ended up.

Powerless — with a cast featuring Vanessa Hudgens, Danny Pudi and Ron Funches — premieres Thursday, Feb. 2 at 8:30/7:30c on NBC.

    Um… I don’t think Bruce has any actual relatives in the comics…. this sounds like a bad idea.

    Looking forward to it. Looks fun. And it’d be nice to see Alan Tudyk back on the small screen.

    The more I read about this show, the less I want to watch it. It sounded much better before they reboot it.
