    Debut: March 1, 2016

    Synopsis: At Super Hero High, iconic Super Heroes like Wonder Woman, Supergirl, Batgirl, Harley Quinn, Bumblebee, Poison Ivy, and Katana navigate all the twists and turns of high school in their formative years. United by friendship, the DC Super Hero Girls empower kids to shine with confidence and courage, especially while they combat those overwhelming, exciting, and awesomely awkward moments of growing up (sometimes super powers can be super stressful!).

    Aspiring Super Heroes can check out our exclusive web series for the full scoop on what life is like inside the walls of Super Hero High School. In the spring of 2016, the DC Super Hero Girls will come to life with a line of action dolls, figures and accessories, books, play sets and so much more. If that doesn’t have you bursting at the seams of your cape, remember that the world of Metropolis is at your fingertips here on the website - play, explore, read and....Get Your Cape On! It’s time to meet the DC Super Hero Girls!

    Wonder Woman is an Amazon warrior and princess. She has never left her home on Paradise Island. But she wants to be a super hero - the best super hero she can be.

Wonder Woman has never seen a boy before.

    Novel #2 "Supergirl at Super Hero High!"
    She's the most powerful teenager in the galaxy, but after losing her home planet of Krypton and everyone she knows, Supergirl is not so sure the elite Super Hero High is the right place for her. New friends and a kindly librarian make her feel welcome, but invading villains and bad dreams shake her confidence. If only she can Save the Day! It's not easy being a super hero, an alien, and a high school student all at once.
    Release Date: July 5, 2016

    Novel #3 "Batgirl at Super Hero High!"
    Barbara Gordon has always been an off-the-charts, just-forget-about-the-test super-genius and tech whiz, and then she gets the offer of a lifetime when Supergirl recognizes that Barbara's talents make her an ideal candidate for Super Hero High. Donning the cape and cowl, Barbara Gordon becomes Batgirl, ready to train at the most elite school on the planet, next to some of the most powerful teenagers in the galaxy. She's always had the heart of a hero... but now she'll have to prove that she can be one. Good thing she loves a challenge!
    Release Date: January 3, 2017

    Novel #4 "Katana at Super Hero High!"
    In addition to training to be a super hero, Katana also follows the noble warrior traditions of the Samurai. Now an unknown source has given her the responsibility of guarding a hundred ancient Samurai swords-but why her, and for what purpose? With the help of Wonder Woman, Supergirl, Miss Martian, and some of her other super friends, she intends to find out. But she just made captain of the fencing team, she has a huge school project due, and a villain with ties to her family's past seems to be amassing an army. Maintaining her inner peace isn't going to be easy... but Katana has the steel to save the day!
    Release Date: July 4, 2017

    Novel #5 "Harley Quinn at Super Hero High!"

    Funny girl Harley Quinn loves fighting crime with her classmates like Wonder Woman, Batgirl, and Supergirl, but she always does it her with own madcap style--and a big mallet! It's no surprise that Harley can't resist getting involved with an upcoming inter-school battle of the bands and a fantastic cosmic carnival that appears only once a year--and this year, it's coming to Earth! But as things get stranger, Harley knows how to get to the bottom of a mystery--and deliver a great punch line while doing it!
    Release Date: January 2, 2018

    This is for the novels published by Random House, which actually tell different stories than what the TV special on Boomerang will be about.

    3/9: So far as I can tell, this first novel spans from just before the first webisode to the 13th one and the start of the TV special. 237 pages.

    7/3: I asked Lisa Yee about Black Canary and Green Arrow's appearance at the Super Triathlon in Wonder Woman at Super Hero High and her reply was
    I also noticed Hawkgirl's grandmother was named Mrs. Munoz. She lives in Venezuela and raised Hawkgirl because her parents were killed in action, implicitly as superheroes. I was curious if this was made up or had some tie to the comics and apparently in the New 52, there's an Earth 2 comic. In it, Hawkgirl's name is Kendra Munoz-Sanders.

    7/10: fyi, Supergirl at Super Hero High takes place roughly during the TV special. So another perspective at it. Plus, some extra stuff like when she first landed on Earth.
