EPISODE ONE (10/22/16)

SUMMARY: Crimefighter Robin is irritated by her new sidekick, "The Kick," who has dressed in bright green spandex - which isn't really optimal for protection in a fight - and seems hopelessly naive about crimefighting; everything he knows, he learned from comic books. However, she needs help; she's not been herself since she was shot recently, and is in a weakened state. And though she's skeptical that he wants to be a hero for altruistic reasons - he was a PR major and want to establish his "brand" - at least he knows enough not to wear a cape, which would be both impractical and dangerous. And he says his true motivation was being  a fat kid who was bullied, and now wants to stand up against injustice. She also tells him it's good that he trains, but rarely gets into actual fights; comic books make fighting look cool, but true heroism includes avoiding fights unless they're absolutely necessary. As a woman calls for help and the sounds of chaos and calamity arise in the distance, Robin reluctantly allows The Kick to accompany her to the rescue.
