We have our first synopsis for the new DC Comedy series, Powerless and it’s pretty much exactly what we thought it would be.

The series has a lot riding on it being the fist comedy superhero show released; that said with Firefly and Rogue One star Alan Tudyk and Community’s Danny Pudi it should be in safe hands as both actors are proven funny.

We’re excited by slightly apprehensive too.

Let us know what you think…

In a world where humanity must cope with the collateral damage of Super Heroes and Super-Villains, Emily Locke (Vanessa Hudgens) begins her first day as the Director of Research & Development for Wayne Security, a subsidiary of Wayne Enterprises that specializes in products that make defenseless bystanders feel a little safer. Full of confidence and big ideas, Emily quickly learns that her expectations far exceed those of her new boss, Van Wayne (Alan Tudyk) and officemates, so it will be up to her to lead the team toward their full potential and realization that you don’t need superpowers to be a hero.

Powerless debuts on Thursday, February 2nd.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
