I have to say, I'd be sort of interested in taking a look at this if it had come to fruition. This is just the sort of bizarre, "What kind of drugs are these people on?" idea that would get my attention.
The writer speculates Young Justice got in the way of this, and that's probably for the best. But still, I wish this at least got to the pilot stage.
Link's down. But it does remind me of a pitch website I saw once that featured a teenage Bruce Wayne growing up with Alfred, and getting into adventures with best-friend-eventual-villain Harvey Dent. The series eventually became Smallville and they went with the Dark Knight trilogy instead.
Finally got around to checking out this show last weekend and have caught up. Better than I was expecting, felt like the last few episodes were really good. Like the main characters, maybe because they're often not as one note as they seem.
