DC Super Hero Girls centers on the female Super Heroes and

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
