Powerless Debuts on NBC

By Carl Slaughter: This is the opening credits sequence for the new anti-superhero office comedy Powerless that premiered last night.

The comic book cover style emphasizes the premise of the show.  In the forefront, the superheroes are battling the supervillains.  In the background, the innocent bystanders are cowering for their lives trying to avoid becoming collateral damage.

The office workers in the show work for an insurance company that provides superhero damage coverage and develops technology for non-superheroes to protect themselves from the actions of supers.

In this video, the cast of the new anti-superhero comedy talk about their characters:

The fight for justice is no laughing matter! At least, it won’t be until Powerless debuts next season on NBC. In this all new #DCTV clip, we talk to the cast of the hilarious new comedy set within the DC Universe. So how difficult is it cleaning up after super heroes? Why do super-villains make such good politicians? And what’s the deal with Elongated Man, anyhow?


A piece of trivia:  One reviewer saw the original pilot at a convention a year ago and says the scrapped original is much better than the aired version.  Whether the original pilot will turn up online remains to be seen.
