Opening theme

DC Super Hero Girls (later renamed DC Super Hero Girls: At Super Hero High) is a 2015 Web Animation series created by Warner Bros: Animation, DC Comics, and Mattel. Along with the animated specials, the webisodes are tie-ins to the girl-centered DC Super Hero Girls franchise.

At Super Hero High, Principal Amanda Waller and her staff focus on training the iconic, adolescent versions of well-known DC Comics superheroes (and villains) during their formative years to become the next generation of heroic protectors. The school's newest student, potential Themyscira ambassador Diana, must learn the ropes of high school with her new-found classmates through their united friendship.

Webisodes and behind the scenes videos can be found on their YouTube page here. The main site is also here. Not to be confused with the television series of the same name from Cartoon Network, which has a completely different continuity based more on Lauren Faust's Super Best Friends Forever shorts. The continuities are generally divided by their showrunner (Shea Fontana for the Super Hero High series, Lauren Faust for the one based on SBFF).

The webisodes were broadcast as "bumpers" between scheduled programs on Boomerang until 2019, when it was entirely replaced by shorts from the continuity of the aforementioned television series of the same name.

     Characters featured 

DC Super Hero Girls provides examples of:

  • Adaptation Origin Connection: The graphic novel tie-in Date with Disaster establishes that this continuity's Rampage is responsible for giving Killer Croc, Plastique, Jimmy Olsen's Giant Turtle Boy persona and Poison Ivy their powers, when in the comics none of the characters' backstories had anything to do with each other.
  • Adaptational Heroism: As the line is aimed at young children, a number of characters who are traditionally villains or very aggressive anti-heroes are portrayed as straight heroes, including Harley Quinn and Poison Ivy. Explained with different backstories (e.g. without her abusive relationship with the Joker in her past, Harley's more "hero" than "anti"), onscreen conversions (e.g. Blackfire's Heel–Face Turn in Intergalactic Games), and mentions of past reforms (e.g. much of the faculty comes from a program Waller runs to help former supervillains reform).
  • Adaptational Jerkass: In the Lego Galactic Wonder special, Hippolyta has a more condescending and somewhat demeaning personality to her personality, as opposed to her more innocently insensitive behavior in the main series. Just like the main series, she gets better, and she still loves her daughter.
  • Adaptational Job Change:
    • Amanda Waller is the principal of Super Hero High, when her mainline comics incarnation is a government agent.
    • Wonder Woman's love interest Steve Trevor traditionally is a soldier, but in this continuity works at the Cape & Cowls Cafe.
  • Adaptational Modesty: Since the show is aimed for a younger audience, many characters who traditionally wear revealing outfits are covered up. For example, Wonder Woman wears jeans, Ivy has pants underneath a skirt, Cheetah wears a modest outfit instead of wearing a bikini pelt or going naked and Starfire's regular outfit covers more. Harley wears a modified version of her regular outfit instead of her New 52 outfit.
  • Adaptation Relationship Overhaul: In most canons, Starfire and Blackfire are the Cain and Abel. In this franchise, that lasts a single movie, and they get along well after Blackfire's Heel–Face Turn.
  • Adaptational Personality Change: Several characters are a lot nicer than their villainous, or Good Is Not Nice, counterparts in the comics:
    • Amanda Waller here isn't a total 180 from Suicide Squad, but she's certainly a hell of a lot nicer.
    • Harley Quinn is more flighty than psycho.
    • Miss Martian is usually a peppy Plucky Girl but she's now a shy Shrinking Violet.
    • Poison Ivy has gone from an Eco-Terrorist to a shy but still kind person who still creates weird plants, but never with malicious intent.
  • Adaptational Villainy:
    • The Hits and Myths trade paperback had the "Birds of Prey" (a band made of Black Canary, Magpie and Black Condor) as villains.
    • Lena Thorul is basically a female version of Lex here. (In other versions, the reason she's called Thorul instead of Luthor is to distance herself from her evil brother. She's not always squeaky clean, but she isn't a villain.)
    • Downplayed with the Metal Men in the Intergalactic Games movie. Lead, Iron and Platinum are out of control and Principal Waller orders them to be scrapped. Lena sneaks away Platinum to use her in her schemes, but Platinum is eventually convinced to turn against Lena and be good.
  • Adaptational Wimp: Trigon is far less powerful than any of his counterparts with the possible exception of the one from Teen Titans Go!. Although it seems he's taken a level in badass since his debut if this teaser is anything to go by.
  • Adapted Out:
    • Etrigan is shown to be a member of the Super Hero High faculty in the Hits and Myths tie-in graphic novel, but when explaining his backstory, it is shown that Merlin made him good without bonding him to Jason Blood, who isn't indicated to exist in this continuity.
    • The only Doom Patrol-associated characters to appear are Beast Boy and Elasti-Girl. In the cases of Negative Man, Robotman and the Chief, their omissions are likely because of the circumstances of the former two's origins and the last one's characterization as a sociopathic control freak who deliberately caused the accidents that created the original Doom Patrol making it nearly impossible to market the characters towards young girls.
    • The only Metal Men shown are Lead, Iron and Platinum, with Gold, Mercury, Tin, Nameless and Copper being left out.
    • Hal Jordan and Jessica Cruz are the sole human representations of the Green Lantern Corps, with no sign whatsoever that Guy Gardner, John Stewart, Kyle Rayner and Simon Baz exist in this continuity. In addition, while most of the other colors of the emotional spectrum are indicated to exist when Star Sapphire's ring is broken and various students and faculty of Super Hero High are infected with different shades of the emotional spectrum in "Mood Ring", Sinestro is the only shown Yellow Lantern, Bleez is the only Red Lantern to appear, no Lanterns affiliated with the Indigo Tribe or Orange Lantern Corps appear and the Blue Lantern Corps isn't even acknowledged.
    • Jessica Cruz in the comics inherited the ring of Hal Jordan's Crime Syndicate counterpart Power Ring before officially joining the Green Lantern Corps at the end of the Darkseid War storyline. This continuity cuts out the middleman by having a Green Lantern ring appear before her after Hal Jordan leaves Earth to continue his training on Oa, leaving out the element of Jessica first being the successor of the Crime Syndicate's Green Lantern equivalent.
    • No characters associated with New Gods appear besides Granny Goodness, Mad Harriet, Lashina, Stompa, Speed Queen, Artemiz, Big Barda and Darkseid. It's particularly glaring that Big Barda's love interest Mister Miracle never shows up when this same franchise went to the trouble of retaining Wonder Woman, Carol Ferris and Mera's respective relationships with Steve Trevor, Hal Jordan and Aquaman.
  • All There in the Manual: The graphic novels go more in depth with the characters and their backstories. Most notably, we are given more details on the paternal side of Wonder Woman's family (with her father Zeus and all Wonder Woman's half-siblings besides Ares appearing in Summer Olympus) and the graphic novels feature the only appearances of this continuity's versions of Lex Luthor, Black Canary, Etrigan, June Moon/Enchantress, Vandal Savage and the Phantom Zone criminals General Zod, Non and Faora, to name just several characters who aren't shown in the web series and movies.
  • Alternate Continuity: The Lego projects seem to be this. For example, the girls know Lena is evil even though the projects first came out a month before the Intergalactic Games movie, where they find out. The Female Furies in the main series are working under Granny Goodness, while Lashina is their leader in the Lego series. There are also some of the voice switches from the main series.
  • Amazon Brigade: The main seven superheroines naturally fit this. The Female Furies are commonly used as enemies, too.
  • And the Adventure Continues: The last episode has much of the cast vowing that they'll be ready to fight whenever Darkseid inevitably comes back for revenge.
  • Animation Bump: During the climax of Hero of The Year.
  • Audience Surrogate: Jessica Cruz knows nothing about the Green Lantern Corps, hence Principal Waller has to explain all about the Green Lantern mythos to her and the audience.
  • Blonde, Brunette, Redhead: Supergirl (blonde), Wonder Woman (brunette) and Batgirl (redhead) are the main characters. They fight supervillains together and are extremely close.
  • Brainwashed and Crazy: It's pretty much a recurring theme to have the characters brainwashed in some way. For example:
    • In the "Super Hero High" movie, Granny Goodness and the Female Furies activate the Amethyst, brainwashing everyone. The only exceptions are Batgirl and Supergirl due to their special earrings. This goes on for only a few minutes.
    • A major climax during the "Hero Of The Year" movie has Dark Opal and Eclipso activate a black gem that brainwashes Commissioner Gordon, Hippolyta, and the Kents. Earlier on, the Master Alchemist was hypnotized into helping them. The former part lasts one scene while the latter part takes up a good third of the movie.
    • "Seeing Red" has everyone acting like jerks due to red Kryptonite. Starfire is the only one unaffected since she's Tamaranian.
    • The Lego "Galactic Wonder" special has Queen Hippolyta and her army get hypnotized by Dark Opal's mind control gem during the climax. Then the tables turn on her when she's hypnotized.
    • It's pretty much the focal point of the Lego "Brain Drain" movie. Katana and Bumblebee start out hypnotized, and stay that way until the end of the movie. News footage showed Batgirl, Supergirl, and Wonder Woman being hypnotized info committing felonies. The 40 minute mark showed everyone else at Super Hero High being brainwashed from Dark Opal's mind control gem.
  • Briar Patching: Starfire does this in "Seeing Red" to get to the red Kryptonite- as it makes the students angry and spiteful, Starfire says the useful actions would make her angry, so they comply.
  • Bowdlerize: The YouTube channel's music video of "That's My Girl" by Fifth Harmony used for this show changes "Who's been working so damn hard?" to "Who's been working so so hard?" In addition, the verse "Nod if you've been played by every boo/Just tryna show you off/Thought he was the best you ever had/Until he cut you off" is omitted, shifting more focus on the song's message of female empowerment due to the franchise being targeted towards children, a demographic not usually informed about the issue of abusive relationships.
  • Cain and Abel: Siren and Mera are this in Legends of Atlantis.
  • Call-Back: Harley's fail montage from "Fall into Super Hero High" contains clips from the last episode.
  • The Call Knows Where You Live: The Green Lantern ring was pretty relentless in following Jessica.
  • The Cameo: Some of the other students attending Super Hero High are Arrowette, Sandman, Plastic Man, Huntress/Tigress (Paula Brooks), Jinx (based off of her Teen Titans (2003) incarnation), Fire, Animal Man, Hawk, Dove (Dawn Granger).
    • Students from other schools include Blackfire, Lobo, Sinestro, Bleez.
  • Cast as a Mask: In the Lego Supervillain High movie, Principal Taller, the principal of Uber High, is voiced by Tara Strong, while Lena Luthor, who's secretly her in disguise, and orchestrated everything, is voiced by Romi Dames.
  • Casting Gag:
    • Jonathan and Martha Kent are voiced by Dean Cain and Helen Slater, who respectively played Superman in Lois & Clark and Supergirl in the Supergirl (1984) film. This is also a double Casting Gag, as they also play the Danverses in Supergirl (2015) and the Kents serve the same role the Danverses did in both the series and comics: being Kara's adoptive parents.
    • Frost's Hero Of The Month short shows her being good at math. Danica McKellar, her voice actress, is an accomplished mathematician.
    • "Hero Of The Year" has a scene of Harley Quinn showing Big Barda around. Big Barda's voice actress is Misty Lee, the wife of Harley's co-creator Paul Dini.
    • Two of the characters Josh Keaton voices are Steve Trevor and Hal Jordan, whose iconic portrayals have both also been provided by Nathan Fillion.
    • Dark Opal is voiced by Sean Schemmel, in which this casting forshadows a character that's all dark.
  • Christmas Episode:
    • "It's a Superful Life" has the heroines do what they can to make the holidays enjoyable and pleasant for everyone at Super Hero High".
    • "Fortress of Solidarity" concerns with Supergirl being upset about her biological parents being deceased and her surrogate parents Jonathan and Martha Kent appearing to not be able to visit her during the school setting up their Christmas tree.
    • "Super Gift Swap" has everyone trying to avoid being stuck with Harley's present due to the gift having a suspicious ticking sound. It turns out that it's ticking because the present contains a watch Harley stole from Batgirl's room.
  • Combat Stilettos: Defied. One of Wondy's early costume designs has high heels, and they only serve to trip her up and get stuck in the ground, proving extremely impractical.
  • Composite Character: This continuity's Cyborg mainly resembles his depiction in Teen Titans (2003), but also has hair like his comics counterpart and has the chest insignia of his New 52 incarnation.
  • Criminal Amnesiac: Batgirl in "My New Best Fiend" loses her memory after getting hit on the head and is manipulated by Catwoman into being her partner in crime.
  • Crowded-Cast Shot: Featured in "Welcome to Super Hero High", with 35 heroes included, no less.
  • Damned by Faint Praise: In the final graphic novel tie-in "Spaced Out", Green Lantern Jessica Cruz botches her first combat simulation. Coach Wildcat tries to reassure her: "Don't worry about it, kiddo. It wasn't the worst first try I've ever seen."
  • Decomposite Character: In the comics, Oracle was Batgirl's new identity while she was in a wheelchair after being shot by the Joker. Here, Oracle is Batgirl's computerized assistant.
  • Darker and Edgier: Though Legends of Atlantis still has its comedic moments from the show, it features PTSD, actual scary instances of near death (particularly Aquaman (though he was said to be asleep forever) and Wonder Woman in the Cold Open), and a teen supervillain (not counting Lena Luthor) who was evil from the get-go. No heart, just mad for power.
  • Denser and Wackier: Than the typical modern DC animated content. It's taken to a whole new level with the Lego projects.
  • Disappointed in You: Ivy says this to one of the plants in her Hero of the Month video.
  • Diegetic Soundtrack Usage: When Mrs. Clayface tries to get the Batjet's windshield wipers to work, she accidentally turns on the radio, which briefly plays the show's theme song "Get Your Cape On".
  • Divergent Character Evolution: Miss Martian was created as a Supergirl expy. The two go to the same high school in this series. Supergirl keeps her standard personality while Miss Martian is much more shy than usual.
  • Domino Mask: Batgirl wears a large, black domino mask and a hood instead of her usual cowl.
  • Embarrassing Old Photo: Batgirl's "Hero of the Month" short ends with her father James Gordon embarrassing her by showing a baby picture where she's making a mess with spaghetti.
  • Embarrassing Relative Teacher: Barbara Gordon decided to start attending Super Hero High as Batgirl. Her father, Jim Gordon, teaches classes at the school. Babs doesn't seem too embarrassed by her dad, however he does call her cutesy pet-names and tries to coddle her despite her protesting.
  • Eat the Camera: "Franken-Ivy" has a blink-and-you'll-miss-it scene where one of Ivy's plants gets out of hand.
  • Engineered Heroics: Cheetah does this enough times that people eventually stop believing her.
  • Everyone Went to School Together: At least a large amount of DC characters did in this continuity. Superman and Batman aren't shown, but Word of God is that they're both alumni.
  • Face–Heel Turn: Sinestro goes from stern headmaster of Korugar Academy in "Intergalactic Games" to actively kidnapping Wonder Woman, the Flash, Starfire and Supergirl to rebuild its student body in "Ring Me Maybe" and get beaten by brand-new Green Lantern Jessica Cruz.
  • Face Your Fears: In "Ring Me Maybe" we see Jessica Cruz chosen to succeed Hal Jordan as Green Lantern, and she must do this against Sinestro.
  • Friend to All Children:
    • Wonder Woman's Hero Of The Month episode showed her saving a falling child.
    • In the Intergalactic Games movie, Starfire is shown ditching an event to help to save people from a blazing fire, including a little girl.
    • In "It's A Superful Life", one scene has Big Barda reading a Christmas poem to a child in the hospital, and said child is very touched by it.
  • The Ghost:
    • Superman is occasionally mentioned as an esteemed graduate of Super Hero High but, aside from having his own statue at the academy, never physically appears.
    • Robin indirectly mentions Batman in "Kid Napped" when complaining about Batgirl babysitting him, with the closest the Caped Crusader makes to a physical appearance being a plushie of him appearing in the tie-in graphic novel Finals Crisis.
    • One character is Mrs. Clayface, who is the wife of Clayface, but her husband never actually appears.
  • Heel–Face Turn: Big Barda, Blackfire, and Black Canary all get onscreen redemption arcs, Ivy is implied to have been a villain or at least a delinquent before coming to Super Hero High, and many of the school's faculty were once supervillains.
  • Heroes Love Dogs: Krypto the Superdog and Ace the Bat-hound are Supergirl and Batgirl's dogs, respectively.
  • High School AU: The series' premise is an interpretation of the DCU where most of the characters are high school students. Here, the canon is rather confusing, as many characters' well-known backstories are left unknown or outright invalidated by their appearances here.
  • "I Know You're in There Somewhere" Fight: In "Out of the Bottle", Art teacher Miss Moone has been taken over by her evil split personality, and Harley Quinn tries to reach her out:
    Harley Quinn: Ms. Moone, I know you're in there. So listen up!
    Enchantress: (wheezing) June Moone is no more. I consumed her!
    Harley Quinn: Yeah, right! That's exactly what someone who didn't actually consume Ms. Moone, but was scared that my maneuvers might work, would say!
  • I'm Okay!: A running gag in the webisodes.
  • In Spite of a Nail: In this universe, the Kryptonian Science Council actually heed Jor-El's warnings but Krypton blows up before the evacuation fleet is ready, and Superman, Supergirl and Krypto the Superdog -and possibly Zod and his men- are the only survivors. And even though Zod isn't banished to the Phantom Zone he still despises the House of El.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Most characters who went through Adaptational Heroism have become this, most notably Harley, Frost, Blackfire, and Gorilla Grodd, among many others.
  • Jet Pack: Batgirl always carries around a bat-shaped jetpack.
  • Leaning on the Fourth Wall: "Quinn-tessential Harley" can serve as a rather unsubtle commentary on the character's popularity out-of-universe.
  • Lighter and Softer: When compared to the DC Animated Universe, Young Justice (2010), DC Universe Animated Original Movies, or even the Toyetic Batman Unlimited, the webisodes take a while to have any of the heroes engage in typical superhero-ing adventures. Even Krypto the Superdog (or more appropriately Super Best Friends Forever) had more instances of action or peril. Apparently an intentional decision. According to Shea Fontana and Aria Moffly, the webisodes were meant to focus more on the comedic and "problem-solving through rational thought" aspects of a superhero High School AU; the graphic novels and direct-to-video movies feature more traditional superhero escapades from the start. Later episodes also add more action.
  • Limited Animation: Once the final season hits and everybody involved knew that the series was going to be replaced, the animation budget plummets, replacing the unique and dynamic shots of the earlier seasons with static character models and black-screen fights. Big surprise this season was handled by Renegade Animation.
  • Malaproper: Starfire, being an alien and corresponding with her solo series, doesn't entirely understand English syntax and doesn't understand the meanings of common expressions.
  • The Man Behind the Man: Lena turns out to have been backed by Brainiac.
  • Mundane Utility: When not superheroing, yeah. Slice of Life episodes also tend to work this way.
  • Mythology Gag: Harley Quinn's pajamas are patterned after her classic jester costume.
  • Never Say "Die":
    • Killer Frost is just called Frost here. Justified in that this version isn't a supervillain, so "Killer" wouldn't make much sense as part of her name.
    • Similarly, Killer Croc is just called Croc, though he's still called "Killer Croc" in the credits.
    • Averted with Killer Moth, likely to emphasize his silliness and the contrast between his actual image and the image he'd like to convey.
  • Not Hyperbole: Carol Ferris was born flying. Literally.
    Carol: Take it from me, there's nothing to fear. And I should know because I was born flying. Literally. I was born in a private jet flying over the Atlantic because my parents were needed in London for a Ferris Air board meeting that could not wait. And neither could I.
  • Parental Bonus: Pretty much all of the lesser-known elements of DC Comics mythology that crop up everywhere, as most kids won't know what they are while older viewers will.
  • Pair the Spares: Subverted in the ending of "Date with Disaster". Both Principal Waller and Commissioner Gordon lose their dates to the dance at Super Hero High so Gordon suggests that they dance with each other. Waller politely declines the offer.
  • Rogues' Gallery Transplant: Happens a lot, largely to characters who were originally spun off of others (for instance, a lot of Batman villains are Batgirl's enemies here), but also because they dig into obscure enemies to make up for all the big-name ones turned good. If you were watching this series blind, would you know that the Double Dare Twins were Nightwing villains?
  • Save the Villain: Done in the Hits and Myths trade paperback when the "Birds of Prey," here a band made of Black Canary, Black Condor and Magpie, steal the Batplane of Batgirl, but run out of fuel in mid-air and are about to crash-land onto the farm of Ma and Pa Kent.
  • Scales of Justice: Fittingly the courtyard of Super Hero High has a statue of Lady Justice, complete with her scales.
  • Screw This, I'm Outta Here: In "Intergalactic Games", Sinestro and the villain students (except Blackfire) fled Earth rather than help the heroes fight Brainiac. As a result, they automatically forfeit the game.
  • Secret Identity: Surprisingly averted. In this universe's Metropolis, "everybody's free to be whoever/whatever they are, so there's no need for secret identities and everyone can just let their flags fly". Emphasized when Barbara announces she's decided to become Batgirl by suiting up on stage, in front of her schoolmates. Lucius Fox does mention having one, however.
  • Share Phrase: "Believe in your superself" is the catchphrase of the web series, used by characters in this continuity multiple times in both animations and comics.
  • Shout-Out:
  • Sick Episode: In "Cold Blooded", Frost comes down with a cold, and she keeps accidentally freezing things every time she sneezes. Later on Batgirl, Ivy, and Bumblebee spend all night trying to make her feel better. In the morning, she thanks them for helping her feel better, at which, they become sick.
  • Single-Stroke Battle: Wonder Woman and Lena Luthor do this in Intergalactic Games twice, both times costing Lena the arms of the robot she's piloting.
  • Small Role, Big Impact: Dr. Fate only appears for one scene in the Lego Supervillain High, but his appearance helps set up the climax.
  • Social Media Before Reason: Part 1 of "Nevermore" has a teenager try to take a selfie in the middle of destruction that Raven accidentally caused. Batgirl is understandably annoyed when rescuing her.
  • Spared by the Adaptation: Carol Ferris' father Carl Ferris is shown to be still alive, when his comics counterpart died of a heart attack.
  • Spinoff Sendoff: The final chapter of the Spaced Out graphic novel tie-in has Zatanna show the girls an alternate universe of the girls which turns out to be the 2019 version of the series. Amusingly both Harley and Ivy are a little put off that they're villains in that universe, while Frost takes solace in her obliviously wrong assumption that she doesn't have a villainous counterpart (when not only is the mainline version of Killer Frost a villain, but she lacks a counterpart in the 2019 continuity).
  • Spiritual Successor: The show seems to be the combination of Gotham High (a pitched-but-never-materialized DC animated show starting adolescent versions of the Batman cast) and Super Best Friends Forever.
  • Stable Time Loop: The graphic novel tie-in Past Times at Super Hero High reveals that Amanda Waller was inspired to become principal of Super Hero High because Harley and Batgirl traveled back in time and defended her from Solomon Grundy during her youth.
  • Stealth Pun: In "Fall into DC Super Hero High", Frost accidentally freezes her slice of pizza and gets it stuck to her tongue, and Catwoman helps her pull it off. In other words, "cat got your tongue".
  • Stepford Smiler: The main characters look as cheerful and happy-go-lucky as they come. But in Out of the Bottle, Harley Quinn mentions she goes to a therapist (in fact she has enough traumas to fill a dozen of books... some of them brought about by a green-haired jerk bullying her in kindergarten), and Wonder Woman, Supergirl and Batgirl admit they're going to a therapist, too. The group concurs that "It's hard to be a super hero without a little mental health help."
  • Superhero School: Super Hero High tells us this trope in its name. Though it's not above teaching supervillains (they seem to be infiltrators or will defect later in life, though, if they aren't simply good versions like Ivy and Harley).
  • Thick-Line Animation: The animated versions have colored outlines, as opposed to the usual single black variant.
  • This Looks Like a Job for Aquaman: Happens when new student, Mera, has trouble fitting in and finding a use for her water manipulation powers until she defeats Firefly, who just happened to be setting fires next to the city waterfront.
  • Toyless Toyline Character: The only characters besides the main heroines to get their own dolls in the Mattel toyline are Starfire, Cheetah, Frost and Hawkgirl, with none of the male characters getting toys at all. This is slightly mitigated in the LEGO sub-line, where Katana is strangely the only one among the main heroines to not get her own minifigure and the only other characters to get their own minifigures are Steve Trevor, the Flash, Lena Luthor, Eclipso, Lashina, Mad Harriet and Krypto, plus the Action Figures line targeted at collectors at least included a figure of Beast Boy.
  • Vile Villain, Saccharine Show: Brainiac is a deadly serious, deadly dangerous No-Nonsense Nemesis.
  • The Voiceless: Mr. Parasite never speaks, with his only utterances being sighs and exasperated grunts.
  • The Wildcats: Referenced by making Wildcat the gym teacher.
  • Wolverine Publicity: Supergirl is prominently featured in the opening credits from the beginning of the webisodes, despite not actually appearing at all until the first special. It may have something to do with Supergirl (2015).
  • Would Hurt a Child: The Intergalactic Games movie shows Lena Luthor willing to hurt the same little girl Starfire saved when inside her Mecha.
