Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (1):
Kids say (9):

This madcap series delivers on what the short-form show that preceded it couldn't: more time for viewers to get to know the teen versions of these familiar DC Comics characters. On the whole that's a good thing; they're all kinds of intriguing, and the mix of personalities certainly keeps things interesting and amusing. As these teen heroes come into their own and form bonds of friendship and teamwork, they also discover individual strengths they didn't know they had and learn to put them to use for the common good.

DC Super Hero Girls makes a compelling case for the entertainment value of female superheroes in a traditionally male-dominated field, but it also wanders into unnecessary gender stereotypes that distract from the positive themes of female empowerment. With so much going on, though, that's an easily overlooked blip in an otherwise effective argument for increased gender balance in superhero characters.
