The Super Hero Girls are the main characters of the second generation of the DC Super Hero Girls franchise. They are a team of female superheroes that defend the city of Metropolis from criminals.

History

The team was first formed in the episode "Sweet Justice," in which Barbara Gordon, who moves to Metropolis from Gotham City, orchestrated a plan to get herself and four other students of Metropolis High School, into detention in order to prove her suspicions that they are superheroes. During her plan, a sixth girl joins them, which leads to a fight. After Barbara reveals her plan to the other girls, they agree to teach Wonder Woman how to pose as a mortal teenage girl in exchange for Wonder Woman training them to be true heroes.

Bumblebee

Main Article: Bumblebee (G2)

Like Batgirl, Bumblebee excels in technology, which can allow her to discover weaknesses in machinery. Bumblebee additionally has the ability to shrink herself, making her useful in situations that involve squeezing into small places.

She is depicted to be shy at times, and tends to be intimidated from her tough classmates, especially Doris, since she usually picks her a lot. But she knows how to become courageous when she is the only one fighting, examples which are "Beeline," and "She Might Be Giant."

Zatanna

Main Article: Zatanna (G2)

The adviser of the group. Zatanna's ability to create and manipulate magic is often useful for tight situations.

Her origin is most prominently shown in the episode "Abracadabrapalooza." She once lived in a trailer with her dad, Giovanni Zatara, where they performed magic acts while gradually getting better. One day, she, when she was young, finds a pimple on her face and attempts to remove it, but more are popping up. She is seen performing magic acts uncontrollably, all the while not telling her dad about it. When John gets accepted to perform at the Abracadabrapalooza, Zee tells him that she doesn't want to be in the act, making her dad sad. As he leaves the dressing room, Zee cries as her magic begins to wreck everything in there. Her dad hears the chaos, but manages to control it, and the dressing room is back to normal. He gives her a spell book given by his grandfather so she can learn how to control her powers. She now resides at the penthouse of a casino where her dad regularly performs his magic acts there.

Trivia

  • Zatanna does not have an actual counterpart in the web series.
  • Batgirl is the only one in the group that doesn't have superpowers.
    • However, technically Bumblebee and Green Lantern don't have superpowers either, because without their ring and necklace they would be powerless.
  • So far, the show hasn't shown any of Bumblebee's parents.
  • In Superhero Feud and Space House, it was believed that the Superhero girls were the same ones that the Teen Titans (from Teen Titans Go!) encountered and befriended, However it was confirm in the Next Crossover that they are not the same ones as they claim to not have met them, which Green Lantern is calling them Tween Titans.
  • Their crossovers with Teen Titans from Teen Titans Go! could not be a coincidence as they're effectively similar in many ways:
    • Both are the main superheroic characters of the 2nd generation;
    • The Teen Titans meet their original counterparts in the crossover special Teen Titans Go! Vs. Teen Titans.
    • It's unknown if the Super Hero Girls will meet their Original Counterparts just like the Titans; Anyway in the chapter 13 of Spaced Out the original Super Hero Girls discover their existence and, if the Comics are canon, this would imply that the SHG from first and second generation will meet in a possible future crossover movie.
