The CW is planning to put out a series called “The Graysons.” For those of you losers who aren’t up with your DC comics folklore, Grayson is the surname of the first boy wonder (that would be Robin, of Batman and Robin). In the comics, Dick Grayson was raised by a family of acrobats, the Flying Graysons but, after his parents were killed, he became Bruce Wayne’s ward and eventual sidekick. This CW show is being exec-produced by McG and some “Smallville” producers and will focus on Dick’s years before he became the boy in tights.

I dunno man, you ask me, this is a terrible idea. I mean, look - folks love Superman. So the idea of seeing the boy who would be the Man of Steel follow his path to superheroicism is a good one (with mixed results in its eventual execution). But who gives a flying fuck about Robin? Hell, DC readers voted to have the Jason Todd incarnation of Robin killed, for Christ’s sake. I can’t see anyone clamoring to see the origins of Robin. So, uhm, good luck with this CW.


Holy Bad Ideas, Batman!
