'Gotham High' Photos Featuring Batman and the Joker in High School

A discarded animated series hoped to revolve around Bruce Wayne and his adversaries' awkward high school years.
About a year and a half ago, character designers and story artists Jeffrey Thomas and Celeste Green were approached by DC Studios to create an animated series called Gotham High, which revolved around the high school years of Bruce Wayne and his most vicious adversaries including the The Joker, the Penguin, Killer Croc, Bane, and more. According to Thomas, the project got lost in a sea of other Barman related projects that were in the works. For the first time, Jeffrey Thomas and Celeste Green have released images from this discarded animated series, which you can check out below, along with a synopsis for the show:

"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?"

    Since this would've obviously been G-rated cheese, screw it. But if someone would've made it into something more adult, I would've checked it out.
