Let's get this right out front. DC Super Hero Girls, as the title implies, is aimed at pre-teen girls, and there's not just the series of webisodes, also available On Demand (check with your cable provider), but there's a series of novelettes, which are being collected into a trade paperback by DC, coming in June. And, yes, there's also a toy line.
Basically, it's this. Many of DC's female crime-stoppers, anti-heroines, and villains, are enrolled at Super Hero High, which, you might say, would be DC's equivalent to a certain Marvel school in Westchester County. Each webisode clocks in at about 2-4 minutes each, so they fly by. Literally.
In the opener, Wonder Woman arrives on campus, and, out of respect to faculty, turns in her shield to principal Amanda Waller.
Yes, Super Hero High is co-ed. Beast Boy looks more like his DCU counterpart, but sounds the same as he has in animated form for the last 13 years. As I've written elsewhere, when I was first introduced to him 36 years ago, he was using the handle, Changeling, before going back to Beast Boy, which was his original monicker when he was in the Doom Patrol in the 60's. Yep, he's been around that long. A refreshing change is that this Beast Boy is the same playboy I remember. DC Comics artists started giving him the pointed ears in the books a few years ago in the wake of the first Cartoon Network Teen Titans series. Hal Jordan, Wonder Woman, and others have been de-aged to fit into the storyline, which is fine when you're trying to introduce these characters to a new generation and let the kids grow up with their newly discovered heroes.
More minisodes to come, and the 2nd season begins online next month.
