Villains such as Harley Quinn will also be featured on the show, attending school alongside the many heroes.

DC Superhero Girls originally debuted in 2015 as a franchise developed by DC Comics and Mattel. It was introduced in a number of different forms of media from books created by Random House, Lego tie-ins and action figures, produced by Mattel along with comics made by DC Comics. A series of animated shorts were uploaded to YouTube, premiering in October of the same year. The web series is currently on its third season with 49 episodes uploaded.

In 2016, a film titled DC Superhero Girls: Superhero High aired on Cartoon Network to help promote the franchise. Its success led to two follow-up direct-to-video films, DC Superhero Girls: Hero of the Year which released in August of 2016 and DC Superhero Girls: Intergalactic Games which released this month.
