While comic book fans keep guessing which superheroes might pop up in NBC’s DC workplace comedy, Powerless, one familiar name has already been confirmed: Wayne.

The network previously stated Powerless will focus on “the exceedingly average employees at an insurance company and their quest to find their own power.” However, a new plot synopsis attached to a recent press release confirms the setting will be “Wayne Security, a subsidiary of Wayne Enterprises that specializes in products that make defenseless bystanders feel a little safer.”

Wayne Enterprises, obviously, is the company headed by Bruce Wayne (a.k.a. Batman). Here’s the full synopsis from NBC:

In addition to Hudgens and Tudyk, Powerless features Danny Pudi, Christina Kirk, and Ron Funches.

“I feel like a lot of the superhero shows are always about the superheroes,” Hudgens told EW at San Diego Comic-Con. “But what about the other people who are trying to live their lives while these superheroes are having these epic battles? What happens afterwards?”

Powerless will premiere on NBC Thursday, Feb. 2 at 8:30 p.m. ET.
