    Yes so long as they don't deal with any of the crossover junk.

    Not as a direct adaptation from the comics.
    It'll be a CW Batman drama where Bruce is in school with Catwoman and the Joker like some YA elseworld.
    Or it'll be a CW style show about Robin where Dick is in school with Babs and Helena and Rose and it's basically a harem show.
    Or it's a show abut the Son of Batman and it's Damian being awkward in high school trying to deal with the normies.

      Joker's son is the quiet nerd in the trench coat and fedora. He shows up to school at the start of the third episode with a rifle. As he's about to gun down Damian and the rest of his class, we see him smile for the first time. He pulls the trigger, and hundreds of flags with BANG! printed on them fly out.

      >CW
      None of the characters will ever be in costume and only loosely based on who they are supposed to be.

      I don't kniw if this applies to Gotham Academy, but every female superhero comic at the time felt like TV pilots (case in point Batwoman and Harley Quinn). Every comic has two of these things:
      >coastal city/college town setting
      >the MC is in college
      >the MC has a complicated love life (either before or during their run)
      >the MC hides their double life but reveals it to their roommate
      I don't mind this kind of stuff, if there weren't 6 of these comics in circulation.
      >Squirrel Girl
      >Batgirl
      >Batwoman
      >Harley Quinn
      >Starfire
      >At least Black Canary stood itself apart

      a plagiarist trash cartoon work
      >No.
      I mean if they just refused to use batman and focused on the rest of a huge gothic city run by mobsters and the clinically insane it could be fine, if they had any talent or motivation
      >Oh sorry that's just saying no with more words.

        It's a blatant ripoff of Gunnerkrigg Court. Siddell should sue.

    Yes. Would also work as a webcomic.

    Can’t look for it now, but I made a post about it on the clayface thread not long ago. Could work, but with some tweaks

      Here's the post

      >Honestly, it could make for a decent mystery/slice of life cartoon series like Mystery Inc. but just in case it would need more Batman in it to maintain the public’s interest. Perhaps have Damian as a permanent character taking the role of protagonist of the Detective Club instead of Olive.

      >Like Bruce sends Damian to school to learn how to be a kid’s his age, and tone down on the edginess, and adds the bullshit excuse that since “repented” criminals work at the school he could keep an eye on them.

      >Could even have an episode where he calls the batfam for backup and Steph hangs out with Kyle… though it could come either in season two if Kyle and Olive broke up, or season one if they were never together in this series

    Maybe if it focused on Robin at Gotham Academy, but no one will care about some Z list characters as the focus.

    It would be great if they stuck to the comics and were inventive within those ideas. If they just tried to make Gotham Riverdale, nope.
