DC Super Hero Girls is back with a new animated short and digital first comic chapter! Today via press release we got a look at the next episode of the web series about our favorite female DC superheroes, as well as a preview of the first chapter of the digital comic. In the episode, which you can watch below, Hawkgirl, Batgirl and The Flash have to solve a puzzle to see who’s been doing dastardly deeds across the city and why. Read why this chapter is important below the episode.

Did you watch? Okay, this episode is adorable. All of them are, and if you haven’t watched, you should. I spoke to one of the writers a while back, and she said that her goal was that little girls would be able to name a ton of female superheroes when the show was done. It makes my heart happy. The reason this one is so important, however, is because of an issue that many of us as women have faced; the guy who thinks you’re fated to be together because of something in his mind. You know, the inevitability of you being “the one.” If you both think so, that’s amazing. If it’s some guy who doesn’t think you have any say in the matter, and that because he loves you or thinks you’re supposed to be together, you should fall in line with his desires. Or that guy in a bar who thinks you are required to smile at him because he told you to. Or that guy on the street who calls you a bitch for not responding to his ovatures.

Yes, this is a kid’s cartoon, but it’s a good message to send early. Just because he tells you that you’re supposed to be together, doesn’t mean you owe him anything. Kudos, DC Super Hero Girls!

Okay, next we have a preview of the chapter of the digital comic Past Times at Super Hero High. Here is the official info:
