DC Comic's Powerless, a half-hour comedy series within the DC Universe, was originally supposed to debut this past fall.
However it was pushed back to "sometime in 2017." With the recent release of NBC's mid-season series schedule, we now know that Powerless will premiere on February 2 on NBC.
Since NBC's Powerless is set in the DC Universe, you can expect some of their superheroes and supervillains to appeared on the half-hour comedy series, such as Jack O'Lantern and Crimson Fox.
You can also expect the more iconic characters, like Wonder Woman and Aquaman, to be namedropped frequently.
