“Wayne or Lose” is the title of the series premiere of Powerless, airing tonight (February 2) at 8:30PM ET/PT on NBC. It’s the first workplace comedy to be set in the DC Comics universe, and “Wayne” sadly doesn’t refer to Bruce, but instead, it refers to his somewhat inept cousin Van Wayne (Alan Tudyk). In addition to Tudyk, the series stars fan favorites including Vanessa Hudgens, Ron Funches, Danny Pudi, and Christina Kirk.
