As much fun as the DC Super Hero Girls shorts have been, and as good as it is to see a show focused on DC’s female characters, they do have one flaw: They are all short, just a couple of minutes long apiece. Or rather, all of them were short. At 10 Am, March 19, the DC Super Hero Girls will be getting a full hour-long special on Boomerang.
The show will cover Supergirl’s arrival and adjustment to the Super Hero world. Intimidated by her more famous fellow students, she will turn to Barbara Gordon for help. One of the best things about the Super Hero girls has been the portrayal of the friendship between the girls, so it is good to see that Super Hero High will continue to develop this theme.
Of course, there is also a mystery for everyone to solve, as something is going wrong with the school’s “Boom Tubes,” and the Junior Detective Club suspects sabotage.
The special is written by Shea Fontana, who also writes the shorts, so the character continuity will be strong. The special also has a number of recognizable voices. Anais Fairweathe voices Supergirl, Mae Margaret Whitman voices Barbara Gordan. Other notable voices are Dean Cain (Lois and Clark), Greg Cipes, Tara Strong, Ashley Eckstein, John Di Maggio, Tom Kenny, and Helen Slater.
Synopsis for the Super Hero High Special
Super Hero High is buzzing with excitement over new student, Supergirl. But when Supergirl crash lands into the cafeteria, it’s evident that though she has incredible power, she has a long way to go before she becomes a Super Hero. Too intimidated by the other supers to ask them for assistance, Supergirl turns to helpful I.T. girl, Barbara Gordon. Barbara takes Supergirl under her wing and introduces her to the sweet, old librarian, Granny Goodness. As Barbara helps Supergirl learn to harness her powers, Wonder Woman joins them and becomes a mentor and friend to Supergirl. Meanwhile, the Junior Detective Club (The Flash, Bumblebee and Hawkgirl) investigates a mysterious rash of security breaches centered around the teleportation “Boom Tubes.” Could it all be because of reformed Super-Villain and Super Hero High Vice-Principal Gorilla Grodd – or something far worse?
