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. (Goodreads)
As a fan of the DC universe, I really enjoyed reading Wonder Woman at Super Hero High! The book gives the readers a perspective of a world where heroes and villains coexist while learning about their abilities and potential during their teenage years.
In the book, a young Wonder Woman gets permission from her mother to assist Super Hero High. Wonder Woman had never lived anywhere else other than Paradise Island making everything new to her. At Super Hero High she meets supers such as Hawkgirl, Katana, Harley (her roommate) Ivy, Cyborg, and many more. Wonder Woman goes through some struggles at Super Hero High as she tries to adapt and become a super hero which include “You’re not wanted here” mystery notes.
I really liked the story author Lisa Yee created with the characters. Their older versions are enemies and one would never imagine Wonder Woman and Harley being roommates, or Ivy being one of her good friends. The story is different from what one is used to which makes it interesting to read. There’s also a mystery to solve where several of the super girls join in to help Wonder Woman solve it. Something I enjoyed reading was Wonder Woman’s interaction with Steve Trevor!
All in all, Wonder Woman at Super Hero High is a great read, especially right now when there’s several DC movies coming out. The book gives the older fans something refreshing and children friendly to read to their kids if they’re looking for material to start them in the fandom. I definitely recommend Wonder Woman at Super Hero High.
