DC SUPER HERO GIRLS: WONDER WOMAN: SUMMER OLYMPUS
School’s out for summer, which means WONDER WOMAN has to take her annual trip to visit her dad, ZEUS. Wonder Woman usually feels like an outsider among the gods and goddess of her paternal family (and she hates the constant barrage of “You’ve gotten so big! How tall are you now?”), so she’s thrilled when Zeus says she can bring a few friends along. When the girls arrive at Olympus, it’s not long before the family reunion devolves into a family competition. When jealous ARES enters the scene and stokes the fires of distrust, the family feud turns into a battle for Wonder Woman’s soul! The gods offer Wonder Woman the ability to become “full goddess” and increase her powers – but at the cost of renouncing her life at Super Hero High. Will Wonder Woman refuse the offer, and if she does, might this mean war on Super Hero High? When Ares and STRIFE work their battle-magic on Wonder Woman’s friends, it’s super hero girl against super hero girl in the battle for Metropolis!
