DC Super Hero Girls is getting a reboot and here’s our first look at our favourite DC heroines in the upcoming Cartoon Network series.
From Lauren Faust, the creator of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic, comes the rebooted DC Super Hero Girls which introduces a new look for Zatanna, Supergirl, Wonder Woman, Green Lantern Jessica Cruz, Bumblebee, and Batgirl.
The series is sort of a successor to Faust’s other DC Entertainment stint, Super Best Friends Forever, which was a series of shorts which was shown during Cartoon Network’s DC Nation block with an expanded cast to feature the core group.
There’ll also be appearances from Harley Quinn, Poison Ivy, Katana, Frost, Catwoman, and more. Details on the series as a whole though are still under wraps, though more information is set to be unveiled soon.
DC Entertainment has also released the synopsis for the new DC Super Hero Girls series:
“The world may know them as Wonder Woman, Supergirl and Batgirl, but not-so-typical teenagers Diana, Kara and Barbara, alongside their Super Hero friends have much more to deal with than just protecting the citizens of Metropolis from some of the most sinister school-aged Super-Villains of the DC Universe. After all, being teens is tough enough, what with school, friends, family and the chaos that comes with managing a social life. But add super powers and a secret identity to the mix, and things can get a lot more complicated.
“Sure, gal pals Bumblebee, Zatanna and Green Lantern Jessica Cruz are always there to lend an ear, a shoulder to cry on, and a fist to punch with, but what happens when Diana and her favorite study buddy and fencing partner, Tatsu, can’t agree on how to dole out justice as Wonder Woman and Katana? Or when Barbara finds out her Gotham-Con bestie is teen-fiend Harley Quinn? Along with all their friends, foes and frenemies, this squad of super teens navigates the unique growing pains that come when you’re a teenager trying to fight the battles of the world and the battles of growing up at the same time.”
