DC Super Hero Girls Video Presentation and Q&A
Fresh off their brand-new series on Cartoon Network, the DC Super Hero Girls are coming to WonderCon. The world may know them as Wonder Woman, Supergirl, and Batgirl, but not-so-typical teenagers Diana, Kara, and Barbara, alongside their superhero friends, have much more to deal with than just protecting the citizens of Metropolis from some of the most sinister school-aged supervillains of the DC universe. After all, being teens is tough enough, what with school, friends, family, and the chaos that comes with managing a social life. But add superpowers and a secret identity to the mix, and things can get a lot more complicated. Executive producer Lauren Faust (My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic, Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends) and the vocal cast of Kimberly Brooks, Kari Wahlgren, Nicole Sullivan, Grey Griffin, and Myrna Velasco share new footage and answer your questions! DC Super Hero Girls airs Sundays on Cartoon Network (check local listings).
