Did you dig seeing the Katana character designs from DC Super Hero Girls promo art last week? Then you’re gonna love this latest image teasing a future appearance of Ace the Bat-Hound in the hit animated series. Released last Saturday on Twitter in honor of National Puppy Day, it seems that it will be Batgirl as opposed to Batman who takes in the canine.
First appearing in Pre-Crisis continuity as a Germany Shepherd in Batman #92, Ace once regarded as the more ridiculous aspects of Silver Age Batman stories has since become a beloved fan favorite. Typically depicted now as a Great Dane, Ace has appeared in numerous DC animated media over the years. Could we be seeing other members of the team adopting their own Super-Pets like say Supergirl and Streaky or dare I say Comet the Super-Horse? I for one would flip if Jumpa, Wonder Woman’s Sky Kanga actually makes it in the show.
In keeping with the pet motif,, a trailer for a new online animated short showcases Garth purchasing a goldfish for Kareen Beecher/Bumbleebee. More importantly, viewers get to see Garth using his water manipulation and aquatic superpowers. Voiced by actress Jessica McKenna, Garth better known as the original Aqualad actually made his debut in yesterday’s DCSHG episode “#HateTriangle” fittingly as the water boy for the school’s football team.
Fans attending WonderCon this weekend will definitely want to check out the DC Super Hero Girls panel on Saturday for more glimpses of what’s to come
12:00–1:00 p.m. DC Super Hero Girls Video Presentation and Q&A — Fresh off their brand-new series on Cartoon Network, the DC Super Hero Girls are landing at WonderCon. The world may know them as Wonder Woman, Supergirl and Batgirl, but not-so-typical teenagers Diana, Kara and Barbara — alongside their Super Hero friends — have much more to deal with than just protecting the citizens of Metropolis from some of the most sinister school-aged Super-Villains of the DC Universe. After all, being a teen is tough enough, with school, friends, family and the chaos that comes with managing a social life. But add super powers and a secret identity into the mix, and things can get a lot more complicated. Join executive producer Lauren Faust (My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic, Foster’s Home for Imaginary Friends) plus the vocal cast, including Kimberly Brooks, Kari Wahlgren, Nicole Sullivan, Grey Griffin and Myrna Velasco, as they share new footage and answer fan questions! After its Friday, March 8, premiere, DC Super Hero Girls airs Sundays at 4:00 p.m. ET/PT on Cartoon Network. North 200A.
