The “DC Super Hero Girls” have a new recruit: Supergirl. In the season two opener, Principal Waller tasks Wonder Woman with the task of convincing Supergirl to join Super Hero High. Now in its second season, the bi-weekly webseries will also follow Supergirl as she struggles to adapt to her powers and her new surroundings, but not without some help from her friends.
Though the character appeared in the 44-minute special on Boomerang, this will be her webseries debut.
“[Supergirl’s] dynamic is that she really is genuinely learning about herself and learning about the other girls at the school and wanting to take something from all of them,” shared Anais Fairweather, who voices Supergirl, in a statement. “I really believe she wants to learn from each one of them in their own way and become close to them and find her home here because she’s so far away from her actual home. I could really feel that sense of her wanting to find her place.”
“You see her constantly coming up against herself and questioning herself. Is she powerful enough? Is she ready? Does she have enough training?” she continued. “I think the biggest thing for her is really believing in herself. I so badly want young girls to believe in themselves and to take risks and to not let people stand in their way. It’s so important to trust and to know that you can do this. I think a big thing is to call on help and to not be afraid to ask people for help. I think another one of her challenges is to not apologize so much.”
“I think so much of the time we’re seeing women on television being pinned against each other, and it’s so wonderful to have this show for young women so that they can see other women supporting each other and building each other up. It’s important,” she added.
DC Entertainment and Warner Bros. collaborated with Mattel, Random House Children’s Books and LEGO to launch the “DC Super Hero Girls” line, which includes a toy line of action figures and fashion dolls featuring “strong, athletic bodies that stand on their own in heroic poses.” Random House Books for Young Readers, an imprint of Random House Children’s Books, will act as publishing partner for the franchise, releasing a series of books about the DC Super Hero Girls. LEGO will produce building sets based in the “DC Super Hero Girls” world.
“DC Super Hero Girls” also airs on Boomerang. In addition to the extended special, “DC Super Hero Girls” digital animated shorts are available on Cartoon Network’s CN App. Warner Bros. Home Entertainment’s series of “DC Super Hero Girls” made-for-videos will also release later this year.
