I kinda enjoyed the High School for superheroes of the first version as corny as it was... I'm still unsure about this new version, the first few shorts have been okay. Normally I like Lauren Faust's stuff but I'm not sure I like Supergirl as the butch/cool one, it just dosen't feel like Supergirl to me.

Personally I'm thinking she's basically a fusion with Power Girl.

I agree.

I'm cool with Wonder Woman's shade, especially if they're treating her as Mediterranean, but I'm sure the internet will have many constructive discussions about that.

".. Flash? What happened?"
"Dude... I'm as surprised as you are."

Perfection. Don't change anything.

Compared to the BumbleBee everyone really knows in the last Teen Titans animated series, its a shame to see they've shrunk her personality here. (and lightened her somewhat).

Bumblbee only made a handful of appearances in TT. I'd say she's probably better known from the last iteration of Super Hero Girls, where she was a regular character and actually featured in the merchandising. Action figures and everything.

I'd say you're underestimating how that handful of appearances on TT allowed Bumblebee greater access on to other media (like the ones you've just listed), it was her first and is the only one that regularly show ups on social media today outside of comic book spaces. (Black twitter loves her, that version anyway).

No doubt her latest appearances are more heavily merchandised but the target audience familiar with that Super Hero Girls version would be too young to know what the TT version was like, which is my beef. The changes to her character seem arbitrary and take away from an iteration that I felt built upon her, and deny a new audience of black girls that experience. I can imagine a few well-intentioned reasons as to why that is, but I can also tell they weren't decided by any black women in the writing room.

My point is mostly that with each iteration Bumblebee is continuously shrunken in personality and impact. Which is a shame because her first appearance on TV seemed very concerned with making sure she made her mark despite her few appearances, which worked. (A similar thing could be said for Cyborg).

I still think that the Batgirl costume from the old DC Superhero Girls was great and I’m sad it’s gone away

I really thought that Kara (in civvies) was Black Canary at first. She looks a lot like 1990's Dinah, & the tough girl attitude sort of fits.

The violet hair for Zatanna is clever; it does make her more distinct from other blue-eyed raven-hairs.

I'd probably feel better about it if Raven wasn't often shown with purple hair these days.
