Have you ever wonder how high school was like for Bruce Wayne AKA the freaking Batman? Well, somebody did thought of it, which in turns almost spawning an entire animated series surrounding the idea. Now you can have a glimpse at the eventually aborted animation series, Gotham High.
Riddler and Penguin being the victim of abuse by class bullies Killer Croc and Bane? Harvey "Two-Face" Dent took on Poison Ivy at thye "Student Body Presidential Debate"? An emo Joker with his sidekick cheerleader Harley Quinn? Yes, all this and more unimaginable sights in a previously-planned animation series that thrust our favorite Caped Crusader back in his high school years, along with some of the most prominent future inmates of Arkham Asylum.
About a year and half ago, artists Jeffrey Thomas and Celeste Green created a poster depicting a young, emo Joker and Harley Quinn, along with the title, "Gotham High", and subsequently sent it to DC Comics.
They were then approached by DC to develop the project into an animated series. However, as time goes by, as mentioned by Thomas, the project got lost in the sea of all the other Batman related projects in the works. The artistic duo have recently decided to release the plot synopsis along with a bunch of delightful conceptual artworks for the project at their blog.
Here's the plot synopsis:
We all go through incredible changes as teenagers: growth spurts, bad skin, a sudden insatiable need to uphold justice and avenge your murdered parents…. Well, that is if you’re Bruce Wayne.
As if being a freshman at Gotham High wasn’t tough enough, Bruce’s insomnia and technological fascinations are taking their toll. Instead of spending his time studying, he has begun to obsess over an emerging personality trait: Batman. But under the watchful eye of his guardian and steward, Alfred Pennyworth, Bruce is forced to put his intelligence to good use: graduating high school. But given his classmates, can Bruce survive Gotham High?
While I do not hold too much of an enthusiasm over the project, it remains doubtful if we were blessed or cursed to have this animated series aborted in the end.
