Warner Bros. and DC Announce ‘DC Super Hero Girls’

DCSuperHeroGirlsWarner Bros. and DC Entertainment are listening to us folks and they are launching a complete line–toys, books, LEGO, apparel, etc.–all based around female super-heroes and super-villains from the DC universe.

We’ll get to see Wonder Woman, Supergirl, Batgirl, Harley Quinn, Bumble Bee, Poison Ivy, Katana, and many more as empowered teen girls. Young girls have sorely needed their own set of inspiring super characters for a very long time, and they are finally getting them. I don’t have a daughter, yet, but I do want my son to have great female characters to grow up with, and I couldn’t have hoped for better.

“DC Entertainment is home to the most iconic and well-known Super Heroes including Wonder Woman, Supergirl and Batgirl,” said Diane Nelson, President of DC Entertainment. “DC Super Hero Girls represents the embodiment of our long-term strategy to harness the power of our diverse female characters.  I am so pleased that we are able to offer relatable and strong role models in a unique way, just for girls.”
