There was a (short-lived, I think) TV series called Birds of Prey from the DC world, but though they stole the title of the comic "Birds of Prey" - usually starring Oracle, Black Canary, Huntress and sometimes Spoiler and Batgirl, the show itself was.. uh. Yeah. I shudder just to remember it. I watched it a few times. They had Oracle in the clocktower, but the main hero was called the Huntress (I think) and she was like Batgirl, except metahuman and the daughter of Catwaman (metahuman) and Batman, and then Batman went insane (or something) and left Gotham when Oracle (aka: Batgirl) got shot by the Joker.
So, it sucked. :P
But other than that, "Rising Stars" would be interesting to see made into a movie. I can't remember the author of it offhand. Premise is a comet passes by the Earth (or hits the Earth, can't remember which), and every child in a small town that was concieved at that moment is born with special powers. And it proceeds from there. Very interesting. :)
