5 out of 5 stars

When the SuperHero Girls are faced with a city-wide power outage, all electronics are dead and Batgirl especially suffers since none of her gadgets work and she is cut off from all her data and messaging. Only by working together can the girls solve the mystery of who stole all of Metropolis’ power!

The best part about this story is the adorable friendships between all the super girls! Supergirl, Wonder Woman, Zatanna, Batgirl, Green Lantern, and Bumblbee; they are all so different, with different powers, abilities, personalities, and interests, but they love and support each other through everything, and not just in their crime-fighting missions. They really come together to inspire and encourage one another, and I loved the caring dynamic they shared.
I loved the cartoony art! It’s really colorful and bright, with great action and easy to read dialogue. I loved the characters’ style; their costumes, hair, and facial expressions really brought them to life. The art made it so easy to get lost in the story!

I love the action in the plot, and the mystery of how the power was stolen. Batgirl is at the forefront of this story, and she has to learn how to cope without her gadgets and technology. She begins to realize that she has other resources she can rely on to help her team, and that sometimes it can be good to slow down and unplug and appreciate your friends and family. Such a great story arc for Batgirl, with some great character development!
