~ Batgirl

#SweetJustice is a television movie special consisting of the first four episodes of Season 1 of DC Super Hero Girls. It premiered on March 8, 2019 on Cartoon Network.

Plot[]

The episode starts off with a commercial of LexCorp with Lex Luthor and Lena Luthor. Then, in the breaking news, with Superman absent, Wonder Woman was seen fighting a monster in Metropolis. Meanwhile, after moving from Gotham City to Metropolis, Barbara Gordon is taken to Metropolis High School by her father, Commissioner James Gordon. However, Barbara doesn't like the idea of transferring to a new school where she would rather meet her team. After that, it's lunchtime, and Barbara notices the other 4 new girls in school: Kara Danvers, Karen Beecher, Zee Zatara, and Jessica Cruz. So in order to get their attention, she starts a food fight with them and the entire school, until it gets into a big mess and Barbara and the other 4 girls are busted by a principal and sent to detention. Additionally, another new transfer student named Diana Prince, also known as Wonder Woman, was also sent to detention for cutting class on her first day. Kara doesn't believe that Diana is a superhero, so they both start a fight, while Jessica tries to stop the fight with her power ring and Karen tries to fly away after shrinking herself with her gadget. Zee then uses her magic to fix the detention room and stop the fight before the principal arrives to check on them. Then, it turns out that Barbara's plan to get their attention worked when she witnessed the powers from the 5 girls and knew that they were superheroes. Diana was impressed that she had found Barbara as her "sister in arms". However, the other 4 girls are not interested in being superheroes, so Barbara makes a deal: Diana can train her and the others to become superheroes while they get to teach Diana the lessons of being a normal teenager. After a while, the girls agree with Barbara and the lesson begins.

After the girls helped Diana wear a casual outfit like a normal teenager, they met on a rooftop before training began. Jessica introduces herself, and with her power ring that was given by Hal Jordan, she becomes the new Green Lantern. Barbara then introduced herself and became Batgirl, though Diana pointed out that she lacked focus. Zee is next and she becomes Zatanna to show Diana some magic tricks, although Diana didn't like the costume she was wearing right before Zatanna changed it to a new costume with a cape. Then, while introducing and shrinking herself with her gadget, Karen was feeling discouraged that she can't do anything right until Diana comforted her and called her by a superhero name "Bumblebee". Lastly, Kara still doesn't like using her powers that will get her into trouble, so Diana throws Barbara off the rooftop, forcing Kara to become Supergirl and save Barbara from falling. Barbara was impressed by the way she had done. Afterwards, the training finally begins, in the junkyard, where Diana teaches the girls how to save "men" from danger, even though there are only female mannequins. During a training montage, the girls all train to save the mannequins, but they all fail. Meanwhile, Diana still doesn't understand how to become a normal teenager after going to the comic store, a spa, and a movie theatre. However, the girls go to a carnival at a pier and they all have fun. Elsewhere at LexCorp, someone has activated the robots to demolish the places such as the comic store, a spa, and a movie theatre.

The girls go to one last place before calling it a day: Sweet Justice, owned by Barry Allen. Diana tries eating ice cream, and she suddenly likes it so much she ate the other desserts from the other girls. But, the robots break in and give the civilians an eviction notice before they start demolishing Sweet Justice. At first, the girls hesitate due to the law, but when a robot heads to the innocent civilians, Wonder Woman destroys one of the robots and the superhero girls begin fighting the other robots to save Sweet Justice. However, their teamwork doesn't last long, and their recklessness accidentally causes the destruction of Sweet Justice. While the girls argue about their failures, Batgirl figures out that the robots and the virtual reality specs were all made by Lex Luthor. Unfortunately, the girls don't believe that it was Lex who is responsible for the destruction, and in the process, Karen, Zee, Jessica, and Kara quit being superheroes and they all went their separate ways. As for Diana, she is caught by her mother, Queen Hippolyta of Themyscira, who reveals that Diana lied by escaping her home and disobeyed her mother, so her mother drags Diana by her ear to an amazon ship to go back to Themyscira. After going back home, Barbara becomes hopelessly sad, even after receiving a call from Harleen Quinzel in Gotham City, noticing that both Barbara and Harleen miss each other. However, Barbara is not giving up. She contacts the other girls in order to convince them to save Diana from being taken back to Themyscira, knowing that Diana was the one who made them not only as superheroes, but as friends as well.

The girls then sneak onto the Amazon ship in order to free Diana, but they are all caught by the amazons and begin to fight them while apologizing and convincing Diana to come back with them. Supergirl said Wonder Woman is the true greatest hero, and it warmed Diana's heart. After that, Diana stops feeling blue, stands up to her mother, telling her she passes the test and its law. Her mother accepts it, Diana leaves the ship with her friends squealing as they are headed to the carnival at the pier. However, they witness the robots from LexCorp about to demolish the carnival. Suddenly, a giant war suit shows up, and as a voice is heard, Batgirl says she knew it was Lex all along. However, it turns out it isn't Lex piloting the war suit, it's none other than Lena Luthor, Lex's little sister. Lena hates teenagers so much, especially Lex, so she came up with an evil plan: She reprogrammed his virtual reality specs and commanded the demolition robots to destroy every single fun place in Metropolis, and with all the teenagers distracted by a sneezing puppy while wearing the VR specs, Lena and all of the children will rule Metropolis, in which Supergirl finds Lena's plan dumb. After that, the fight between the superhero girls and Lena begins. However, the girls still can't stop all of the robots from destroying the pier, so in order to stop the demolition, they realize they must shut down Lena's war suit from the inside. While Zee, Wonder Woman, and Supergirl distract Lena, Bumblebee goes inside Lena's war suit to connect the cable to the motherboard. Green Lantern then helps Batgirl get closer to Lena's war suit so Batgirl can connect the other end of the cable to an amp. But, Lena breaks free and flies up to destroy the pier. However, Supergirl starts playing the guitar, and the sound is so loud it goes straight through the amp and conducts electricity through the cable and Bumblebee as she uses her gadget arm to connect to the motherboard since the cable didn't reach it. Lena's war suit finally shuts down, as well as the other robots and her reprogrammed VR specs, freeing all of the teenagers. The girls congratulate Bumblebee on her courage, Lena is taken away by her parents and Lex, who stares suspiciously at the girls. A crowd of spectators gathers around the girls and cheers for them. Three months later, Sweet Justice is reopened and the girls celebrate with their desserts. However, Barbara shows her friends something new below their table: The new secret base made especially for them. Their days as being superheroes have only just begun.

Quotes[]

  • Zee: [after they're put in detention] I hope you all have good attorneys.
  • Kara: What are you gonna do, sue me cause I have better aim than you?
  • Zee: Oh, I knew you threw those potatoes!
  • Jessica: Now, let's not start fighting again.
  • Kara: You threw more nuggets than anyone!
  • Karen: For the record, if I offended anyone, I'm truly, very sorry

Trivia[]

  • This is the first four-part special of the series.
  • This episode is an origin story and as such, takes place before "The Late Batsby."
  • This episode premiered on International Women's Day.
  • This episode reunites both Nicole Sullivan and Phil LaMarr as they were previously cast in Mad TV.
    • Also, she and Will Friedle had been previously worked in the Disney show Kim Possible.
  • This is the first time that Wonder Woman squealed.
  • This episode features Phil LaMarr and Tara Strong voicing Batgirl and the Flash, who were recurringly cast in Big Time Rush.
  • Kara talks to her adoptive parents about something she did that presumably got her expelled from her previous school. This later becomes a central plot point in "The Good The Bad and the Bizarre."
  • This episode was aired one year after the original webseries' episode, "Gone to the Dogs Part 2".
  • When the girls go to Sweet Justice and greet Barry, both Jessica and Zee are seen to have their eyes glow at him, apparently revealing that they have a crush on Barry. And curiously, Barry did become the couple of both in different continuities:
    • In Jessica's case, she and Barry had a romantic relationship in the current Prime Earth comics; and got married in Justice League: Legacy, where besides they had three children: Nora and twins Jason and Jenny.
    • In Zatanna's case, she had a momentary love affair with Barry during the New Earth stage; and recently, they are dating on the Harley Quinn series, as revealed in the Valentine's Day special.

Continuity[]

  • In Part 4, when Lena Luthor reveals herself to be the mastermind and that it wasn't Lex's plan, she tells the heroines that her brother would never make a good plan. Ironically this would happen in "Ally Cat", where Luthor planned the conquest of Earth wanting to allow a meteor to destroy Metropolis.

References[]

  • Diana eating ice cream and then being hyperactive is a reference to Riley Daring in "The Replacements" episode, "See Dick Run". Both Riley and Wonder Woman are voiced by Grey Griffin.
  • The title of this episode shares the same name as a 1992 action film.
  • The pose that Supergirl uses by bringing Batgirl back is a reference to the 1980 film Superman II, where he saves a boy from the Niagara Falls.
  • The food fight in this episode is a reference to the "DC Super Hero Girls: Intergalactic Games".
  • During the training montage, onomatopoeias appear during a sequence where Batgirl punches several mannequins (assuming they were stand-ins for criminals), a reference to the 1966 Batman series. She also punches two mannequins that were behind her without looking, similar to how Michael Keaton's Batman knocked over one of the Joker's goons in 1989's Batman.
  • When Batgirl tells the girls that Lex Luthor did the demolition of Sweet Justice, Supergirl asks her what Luthor would have against cupcakes; this being a reference to DC Comics' The Super Dictionary, where he stole forty cakes. And in "Superhero Feud", the first crossover with the "Teen Titans Go!", mention is made of it.

Errors[]

  • When Jessica Cruz is walking into detention her earring on her right ear is missing but on other scenes she had it on her right ear again
  • When the girls are at the spa for Wonder Woman's "Normal Teenage Girl" lessons, a close up of Barbara's feet are shown to have five toes, but in the next scene, where she's kicking the water she has four toes.

Censorship[]

  • Cartoon Network Southeast Asia cuts out the scene where Bumblebee gets electrocuted and when she refuses to plug the guitar cord.
