The kid-friendly DC Superhero Girls is shaking up to be a huge adventure series with all the female heroes from DC’s canon, with a new adventure loosely based on The Odyssey. Writer Shea Fontana talks about the new spinoff series surrounding this girl-focused franchise, which is spanning everything from time travel to big ol’ superhero adventures (with a mix of the daily things young girls deal with in life).

As for adapting Wonder Woman and the other ladies of D.C., Fontana said the trick is to find fresh things inside these characters and bring them to the surface, while also changing up the dynamics in their lives to see how that affects their choices.
