After a week of new episodes, it appears that DC Super Hero Girls is taking a brief hiatus for the time being. Hopefully fans won’t have to wait too long. Luckily, in the meantime fans can get their DCSHG fix courtesy of new weekly shorts available on the official DC Super Hero Girls YouTube Channel. These delightful shorts are superb at expanding the world of the show and actually tease what’s to come and introduce characters. The latest short “#AdBlockers” prominently featured Oliver Queen, better known as the Green Arrow.
We actually got a very quick glimpse at Oliver Queen in the episode “#CrushingIt” where unless you saw the credits you may not have immediately recognized him sporting his trademark goatee as well as some pantaloons for the school production of Romeo and Juliet. Fun tidbit, talented character designer Kat Hudson had the honor of designing Oliver’s Romeo outfit for this episode.
Eddie Perino provides the voice of Oliver Queen in DCSHG. Though a relatively new face in the world of animation voiceover compared to his costars, Star vs. the Forces Evil fans will know him as the voice of Princess Ponyhead’s boyfriend, Seahorse.
In a video interview with SYFY Wire, creator Lauren Faust made reference to a group of “6 Hero Boys” in the show. A poster given out at SDCC, seemed to indicate the “DC Super Hero Boys” would consist of:
Much like the 6 “DC Super Villain Girls” are analogous to the 6 main DC Super Hero Girls in either powers and/or personality, it’s only fitting that the show take a similar approach with the male superhero group. Having Oliver Queen as the counterpart for Zatanna may seem like an odd choice, perhaps in terms of powers and abilities, but it makes sense considering they’re both from privileged upbringings. Plus it’s hilarious to see which one is the bigger Drama Queen!
You gotta love Ollie’s civilian attire alluding to his superhero persona with the arrow motif. Keep watching to see when Ollie dons his Green Arrow costume.
Saving the day is super easy when you’re a Super Hero. But stopping evil in its tracks while keeping up grades and managing a social life, all before curfew? Ugh. That’s, like, super tough. DC Super Hero Girls are more than crime-fighting besties, they’re a diverse group of dedicated super-teens! Working together, they fight the battles of Metropolis and the battles of growing, up all at the same time. Always discovering new ways to control their powers and abilities, these awesome girls are quickly learning (sometimes the hard way) how to deal with the super challenges of being a teenage Super Hero
