ABOUT DC SUPER HERO GIRLS

DC Super Hero Girls centers on the female Super Heroes and Super-Villains of the DC universe during their formative high school years—prior to discovering their full super power potential. Featuring a completely new artistic style and aesthetic, DC icons such as Wonder Woman, Supergirl, Batgirl, Harley Quinn, Bumblebee, Poison Ivy, Katana and many more, make their unprecedented teenaged introduction. Each character has their own storyline that explores what teen life is like as a Super Hero, including discovering their unique abilities, nurturing their remarkable powers and mastering the fundamentals of being a hero.

DC Super Hero Girls is a fun, immersive universe that encourages girls to discover their own super-heroic potential with new animated webisodes, TV specials, and made-for-video movies; as well as a merchandise program across all categories, and more. Random House Children’s Books continue to expand on its portfolio of middle-grade novels, with author Lisa Yee; and DC continues to create original graphic novels, with writer Shea Fontana – both publishing programs bringing the DC Super Hero Girls universe to life in all-new stories that expand the world from what is featured in the animated content. Fans can discover more at DCSuperHeroGirls.com and through dedicated social media platforms, including YouTube, Facebook and Instagram.
