I don't understand why everyone loves these characters so much. Why do some of them have to wear dresses? They can't fight in dresses! These aren't DISNEY PRINCESSES who wear dresses because of the time period? Why is Katana the only one whose culture is actually SHOWN, in a very STEROTYPICAL way! Why are they in HIGH SCHOOL? What about elementary school? The most DECENT characters are Wonder Woman an Katana. They're actually INTELLIGENT. Harley Quinn and Supergirl look like Barbie dolls, and BOTH of them are portrayed as being not wise with no brains.

Girls interests are broader than Barbie and highschool

I am so sick of the same 'girlifying formula' used in anything 'designed for girls'. This is just more poorly animated garbage that might as well be Monsters High. We need to demand better for our daughters.
