Preview of The Cape is up: http://www.nbc.com/the-cape/

Despite the storyline being a little derivative of The Punisher - holy crap, action sequences!

And Keith David's in it. Maybe he'll help cancel out the Summer Glau jinx.

Looks interesting, I'll give it a look whenever it starts.

I look forward to the scene when the Cape tries to force Keith David to wear sunglasses.

That looks much more entertaining than Heroes.  I'll be checking it out.

I want to see David Keith force Keith David to wear sunglasses.

I think the design of the hero looks kinda stupid.  But I'll certainly give it a chance when it airs.

Is the costume supposed to be reminiscent of Moon Knight?

I thought it looked like Moon Knight or Cloak (from Cloak & Dagger).

Or a guy in a cloak.  Looks silly, which could be a plus if it doesn't take itself seriously.  I probably won't watch it until I hear some good buzz after a few episodes air.

Technically, is it still a cape if it has a hood?

I'm cautiously optimistic. Hopefully it has better writers than Heroes.

Just saw a commercial for it!  It's FINALLY going to air in January!
