Super Best Friends Forever

Because such dishonour is not befitting an Amazon Princess! I promised my mother that I would serve as a symbol of integrity and strength so that the world of man would know what it means to be an Amazon… plus my sister would kill me!

Super Best Friends Forever is a series of DC Nation shorts produced by Laren Faust (of Powerpuff Girls and My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic) fame starring Tara Strong, Grey deLisle and Nicole Sullivan as Batgirl, Wondergirl, and Supergirl. They fight crime. It’s bright, it’s colourful, it’s funny – and it’s all about an all-female superhero team. What’s not to love?

The only downsides are that it has now been cancelled and the series totals at around five minutes. Not per episode, for the whole series. Bummer.

But fret not! All five of those minutes are available on the DC website here. The three superheroines have an episode each to showcase their abilities and their home lives – followed by two episodes of the team getting their name and establishing themselves as ‘equal opportunity butt-kickers!’.

It’s a great blend of teenage girls doing superhero things and superheroes doing teenage girl things. And for just a handful of episodes, it has a whole lot of character – Wondergirl as the honourable but naive fish-out-of-water, hyperactive, ditzy, but focused and determined Batgirl, and boisterous Supergirl who doesn’t always quite know her own strength…

I really can’t recommend SBFFs enough. Check it out – after all, it only takes five minutes.
