We're less than two weeks away from the premiere of DC’s first comedy series, Powerless. Ahead of the show's debut, a new promo and the first three clips from the first episode, titled "Wayne or Lose," have made their way online.

In the time since Powerless was shown at Comic Con last summer, the show has been retooled, with the setting switching from an insurance company to Wayne Security, an offshoot of Wayne Enterprises. Vanessa Hudgens (Sucker Punch) stars as the show's gutsy heroine Emily Locke, the new Director of Research & Development for Wayne Security. It was recently revealed that Alan Tudyk was playing the role of Bruce Wayne's cousin, Van Wayne.

Which is like the Best. Thing. Everrr.

Also starring are fan favorite Danny Pudi (Community), Christina Kirk (A to Z), Ron Funches (Trolls) and Atlin Mitchell (The Twilight Saga).

The latest promo is actually a Wayne Security Commercial praising their Joker Gas Anti-Venom product, available in both Amethyst and Sangria.

In the first clip, Emily gives a motivational speech about being innovative and not simply copying what LexCorp does, while the second one sees Van taking a call from his famous cousin. The Van Wayne clip also offers another look at DC villain Jack O’Lantern.

Finally, the third and final clip sees Danny Pudi's Teddy giving Emily a very interesting tour of the lab.

Emily Locke lands her dream job as Director of Research and Development for Wayne Security in Charm City, home to superheroes and villains and citizens fed up with the collateral damage of their constant fighting. Full of confidence and big ideas, Emily quickly learns that her aspirations far exceed those of her new boss and officemates, so it will be up to her to lead the team toward their full potential and the realization that you don't need superpowers to be a hero.

Powerless will premiere on Thursday, Feb. 2, at 8:30 p.m. on NBC. Are you looking forward to DC's first comedy series?
