This article is about Cheetah (G2). For the generation one version, see Cheetah (G1).

Barbara Ann "Barbi" Minerva (also known as "The Cheetah") is a villain in the second generation of the DC Super Hero Girls franchise. She is a student at Metropolis High School.

Development

Although the Cheetah in this continuity is portrayed by Barbara Ann Minerva, her appearance and lifestyle make her more like Priscilla Rich, the first character to adopt Cheetah's alter ego in the Golden Age of comic books.

According to Lauren Faust, Cheetah is not considered part of the main villain group due to redundancy in theme, as she shares the trait of envy with Star Sapphire and the theme of cats with Catwoman[1].

Barbi has light tan skin, brown eyes, long blonde hair tied in a ponytail and wears a long-sleeve yellow jacket with cheetah spots on the fake fur on her sleeves, along with wearing a short red skirt and white high-heel boots.
