This year’s Comic-Con is now behind us, and while those of us who were there rest our weary legs and get caught up on some much-needed sleep, DC fans the world over are buzzing with excitement over the amazing news and announcements that broke over the weekend.
The Flash, Green Arrow, Supergirl don’t just save lives on TV…they also save your shoulders at Comic-Con!
When you’re a student, the return to school in the fall is always a bit of a letdown after the glorious freedom of summer. I remember that part of me was happy to see my teachers and get a chance to play with friends every day, but only part of me. Plus, there was usually the dreaded "what I did on summer vacation" assignment that always felt like a weird competition and an invitation to try to one-up your classmates.

There’s nothing quite like seeing a grown Kryptonian throwing a temper tantrum, is there?
The stories of Supergirl and Superman are rooted in the heroes being thrust onto a new world and finding their way. They were launched into unfamiliar territory and learned to harness the powers Earth's sun gave them to keep the planet's citizens safe and sound. They were separated from their families and everything they knew, but instead of wallowing in bitterness, they embraced the future and used their billowing red capes as an umbrella to protect those around them.
Super Hero High is a place for young heroes to learn all the usual subjects and life lessons one studies in high school and also how to use their super powers and skills for the good of humanity. While they balance attending class and striving for top marks with doing whatever's necessary to protect the citizens of nearby Metropolis, they also participate in the usual school activities—you know, sports, clubs and Intergalactic Games. The latter competition is the subject of the all-new animated movie, DC Super Hero Girls: Intergalactic Games.
