Random Cool: <i>Gotham High</i>, or Batman's Animated High School Adventures

Oh, what could have been.

Gotham High was the concept for proposed animated television series about Bruce Wayne‘s high school years, complete with all his allies and enemies representing various high school cliques. Hey, The Joker‘s the class clown! Scarecrow is so emo! Catwoman and Poison Ivy are the hotties! Edward Nigma and Oswald Cobbepot are nerds! And of course, Bane and Killer Croc are the jocks.

The idea was developed by artists Jeff and Celeste, who came up with this plot:

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?

Peep the entire gallery of concept art below.

Unfortunately, DC and Warner Bros. weren’t try’na hear it, so Gotham High won’t be seeing the light of day anytime soon. But still, it’s an awesome idea and one that surprisingly agrees with the Batman universe. What do you think? Would you like to see Gotham High become a reality?

  1. I think it would make a cool show, but there would definitely need to be more characters. Batman has a good track record when it comes to animated films and series.
