The second Super Best Friends Forever short was on last weekend during the DC Nation block and it continued to impress me. If you haven't seen it yet, here is the link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=aX20SKziVxI
This was Batgirl's episode as it set up here character much like last week's established who Donna was.
Poison Ivy is on the loose and the SBFFs are on her trail. Well, at least Supergirl and Wonder Girl are. Batgirl is stuck at home until her father falls asleep.
She also has a 'Dad Monitor' which clues her in on when an exhausted looking Jim Gordon collapses into bed.
Free to head into action, Batgirl speeds across town on a bat-scooter, spring boots, and a nail polish/air mattress gadget.
She also pauses to strike a bat-like pose with the moon behind her. There is no real reason to do this other than it looks cool, which definitely fits the hyper-excited 'this is so cool' attitude this Barbara has. This is the moment of the short!
Somehow, Batgirl is the first of the Friends to get to Ivy, drawn with an Animaniacs' 'Hello Nurse' sort of body.
This is probably the second best moment of the short.
Batgirl might get there first but the other friends are there shortly. And they strike a great team pose here complete with anime-style mega-background.
Unfortunately, we don't get to see the fight! These shorts are too short!
Still, it works wonderfully ... fun and exciting. It is a big hit at home.
And hopefully the next one is a Supergirl-centric short!
