    Preparing for high school exams is hard enough, but at Super Hero High, even the tests are super-tough! Principal Waller keeps an eagle eye on her students, drilling them in math, science, literature—and other subjects like flying and powers! And no one wants to fail, because Principal Waller hands out detention faster than a speeding bullet.

    Leafing through the graphic novel, great stuff. Will have to read in more detail. Cool to see Steve Trevor's look after his only other appearance in the first novel and Solomon Grundy's official appearance after his cardboard cut out in the recent webisode with Batgirl's Batjet. Amusing it was Harley who pretty much saved everyone.

    Lex Luthor was just trying to get even for his sister's application to SHH being rejected. But what a doofus for not taking their gear away. Definitely seeded the possibility Lena (not named specifically but who else?) will be a future threat. I recall some versions, she was a genius/scientist.

    Was totally thrown off Batgirl has at least Batcaves around the city. I asked Fontana and she said Batgirl's good at upcycling. Hm. Loved the chapter with Katana and Beast Boy practicing stealth with hide and seek. Also, hilarious she beat him 642-3 in practice matches.

    Lot of funny easter eggs, like a Captain Carrot poster in Batgirl's alpha cave, Batman and Nightwing plushes in another cave, Wayne Tech logo in one of the Cape & Cowls Cafe smoothie machines.

    Is there any connection between Shea Fontana and television (Star Trek) writer D.C. Fontana?

    I'm sure that they're not the same person, but I thought it possible that Shea might be the daughter or granddaughter (or even niece) of D.C. Fontana.

    HITS AND MYTHS

    A definite lightspeed improvement over Finals Crisis in terms of pacing and content. Pretty cool to see it framed as a 'day in the life' start to finish on a Friday. Nice to see the focus back on Wonder Woman a little and how stressed she gets with trying to do everything. Always great to see the faculty and student body expand as well as the world of DCSHG as well as cash in one all the canon previous to this GN like introducing the first from Korugar Academy, Lobo, or introducing Black Canary and Raven and seeding future appearances...

    But definitely a plus that some characters outside the main and recurring cast got the lime light like Miss Martian, Jinx, Gizmo, and even Katana who's still pretty much the most neglected of the main cast. Overall, happy to see these GNs are being used to tell a full story featuring many characters, cashing in previous set ups, seeding more, expanding the world -- doing everything right basically maybe even better than the movie did.

    Some trivia and evidence at how big the canon has gotten in a little over a year. Had to use a spoiler tag since the list was so big

    Shea Fontana confirmed the archaeologist "Professor Minerva" that Hawkgirl looked up is Cheetah's mother, Thena Minerva (a character from the recent WW comics).
