Summer Glau in The Cape

NBC’s ‘The Cape’ TV SHow Debuts this Sunday – iPad Preview Available

With a happy new year comes new season premieres, and one of the shows comic fans are probably most interested in/apprehensive about is NBC’s The Cape.

The show stars ER’s David Lyons as Vince Faraday, a police officer turned vigilante after being accused of a crime he didn’t commit. Faraday adopts the guise of his son’s favourite comic book character, while receiving superhero training from criminal circus ringleader Max Malini (Keith David).

The Cape has all the makings of a fun show: action, adventure, a nifty “power” (Faraday uses his cape as an extension of his body, sort of like an acrobatic Spawn) and Summer Glau. On the other hand, it could turn out to be dull, derivative nonsense. Fingers crossed, then…
