    I actually enjoyed DC SuperHero Girls: Hero of the Year. Have to say though that I far prefer that movie's character designs to those shown in the illustration above.

    About time! I was wondering when we'd get news on this. I hope Cartoon Network doesn't screw over this show like it does to all recent DC cartoons sans Teen Titans Go.

    Though is that supposed to be Zatanna on the far left?

    This looks so much better than the previous version of the show.

    Sometime next year if I remember correctly. Lauren Faust is extremely talented. Im sure this show will have a much broader appear than the web series

    Going to expand on the characters with longer 11 minute episodes I assume. Which is fine. The shorts are to get people’s interest in the concept/show.

    I wish DC would stop trying to make Bumblebee happen. I'm all for diversity, but for years DC has been trying to make themselves look better by shoving Cyborg and Bumblebee into their shows. There are plenty other ethnic characters with better powers you could use.

    Anyways, I've seen a couple of these promos on YouTube for this and it looks cute, very much like the new My Little Pony, but hey if it works and brings younger children into the comics, then I'm all for it.

    Bumblebee has not been pushed nowhere close to Cyborg. She was a guest character on YJ and only starred in the YT Superhero High or whatever. Apart from that name what else they've pushed her in?

    I don't think she's been pushed as much as Cyborg has, but I feel like she's the female version of this movement.

    I do recall them putting her in one of the Titans movies, at the beginning of it anyways and of course all the DC Superhero Girls variations shows/movies.

    I just don't find her particularly interesting and if they just wanted to push an african american superhero into their shows, go for Vixen, she's an awesome character with a rich history and cool power that would translate well to animation. Bumblebee just comes off as a "Wasp" knockoff to me.

    The character was a TT in the comics so showing up for 5mins in a TT film makes sense. She's far from the female variation imo.

    Bumblebee was probably chosen, as opposed to someone like Vixen, because she has a cute fairy like look, which is easy to market towards little girls. She's also DC's first Black female superhero so she has history on her side. I like Bumblebee, so you'll never hear me complain about her inclusion in anything.
