The DC Comics™ Originals series has a classic, slightly retro style, recalling the look most comic book fans grew up with and remember fondly. Basing itself on the DC Comics™ style of the 1980s, this series celebrates one of the most established looks for the DC Comics™ pantheon of super heroes, including some of its most memorable young heroines.
One is the most powerful teenager on the planet; the other is a police commissioner's daughter who spends her nights fighting crime in Gotham City; the last is the adopted sister of Wonder Woman™, raised on Paradise Island.
Supergirl™, Batgirl™ and Wonder Girl™ are not simply female analogues of their mentors—each has the spirit of their associate, plus additional skill sets: Batgirl is an exceptional fighter and detective, and is unparalleled in her computer skills; Wonder Girl is a founding member of the teenage sidekick supergroup, The Teen Titans; and Supergirl is...well...SUPERGIRL! She has all the powers of her cousin, Superman™, with the temperament and passion of a teenager.

About the Design:
The reverse design mimics a comic book splash page with a coloured and engraved rendition of Supergirl, followed by Batgirl and Wonder Girl. With a confident expression, the youthful and powerful Girl of Steel™ flies off to the right of the coin; to her right is a laser-engraved representation of Batgirl and Wonder Girl. Both are depicted in their most recognisable costumes, as Batgirl's cape billows in the wind and Wonder Girl carries her lasso. They are ready to take action alongside Supergirl, all united in their battle against evil! Also engraved on the reverse within a spiked word balloon are the face value of "10 DOLLARS" and the year "2015".
Did you know…
Supergirl is actually Kara Zor-El from the planet Krypton; she is endowed with super strength, flight, invulnerability, speed, heat vision, freeze breath, x-ray vision, superhuman hearing and an incredible healing factor. Batgirl is Barbara Gordon, the daughter of Gotham City's Police Commissioner, James Gordon. She's an exceptional martial artist, a tactician and a master of combat strategy, not to mention one of the most advanced computer experts in the DC Universe! Wonder Girl is Donna Troy, who was rescued by Wonder Woman and raised as an Amazon on Paradise Island. She's able to fly, has super strength and speed, shares an empathic link with Wonder Woman and is trained as an Amazon... which means she's strong and resilient!
- Supergirl first appeared in Action Comics #252 in 1959 in a story called The Supergirl From Krypton! Before this issue, Superman had always assumed he was the sole survivor of the destruction of Krypton.
- Barbara Gordon wasn't the first (or the last) Batgirl, but she is the most recognised and popular. First gracing the pages of Detective Comics #359 in 1967 in The Million Dollar Debut of Batgirl!, Barbara was introduced as Police Commissioner Gordon's rebellious teenage daughter.
- A fan favourite as Wonder Girl, Donna Troy first appeared in The Brave and the Bold #60; in this issue, Wonder Girl™ teams up with Robin, Aqualad and Kid Flash in the newly formed "junior" Justice League, The Teen Titans.
