Fans of DC Comics will probably love this opportunity to introduce the youngest members of their families to the comic book brand; anyone else can skip this show. Secret Origin of the Batwheels seeks to introduce a new superhero team, but fails to invest viewers in its story. That's mainly because there is very little story – it's overshadowed by cool graphics and action scenes that go on entirely too long. Speaking of graphics, some of the Batwheels characters very closely resemble characters from Disney's Cars movies. Kid viewers will be wowed by the images, but the lack of plot, coupled with way too much dialogue, may not have them sticking around for too long.
