This groundbreaking new middle grade series follows DC Comics' most iconic female Super Heroes and Super-Villains . . . as high schoolers. At Super Hero High, the galaxy's most powerful teens nurture their powers and master the fundamentals of what it means to be a hero.
Kicking off with WONDER WOMAN AT SUPER HERO HIGH, the series delves into the life of teenaged Wonder Woman when she leaves Paradise Island, the only home she's ever known, and is thrown into a strange world of chaos, confusion and intense pressure. That's right. High school.
Though the girls and boys at Super Hero High are all super-heroes-in-training, they don't have their full powers yet, and aren't fully aware of their potential to be a super hero -- or super villain.
