Other characters from the DC Comics universe featured in the show include Bumblebee, Zatanna, Jessica Cruz (Green Lantern), Katana and Harley Quinn.

Emmy award–winning producer Lauren Faust will be working on the show as a producer, character designer and storywriter.

Sam Register – the president of Warner Bros’ Animation will be working on the show’s production team as executive producer.

Cartoon Network has been closing the gender gap on their channel lately in an attempt to attract more girls with new shows such as Unikitty! from Lego and Warner Bros. Animation and the reboot of Cartoon Network’s very own The Powerpuff Girls last year. At present, Cartoon Network is considered to be a boy-focused but girl-inclusive channel.
