BCI's Ink & Paint division will be bringing us the May 22nd release of Hero

which included the animated adventures of Captain Marvel and Isis (who also have
appeared in Hero High). Below we have all the details about the DVD
release, including wonderful bonus material and a great look at both the
packaging, and a shot from one of the live-action wraparound segments that is
included on this set! Cost is $24.99 SRP.
Welcome to Hero High, an institute of super learning for teenage heroes and
heroines in training! These students aren't always in control of their super
powers, leading to hilarious misadventures. Join Captain California, Glorious
Gal, Misty Magic, Punk Rock, Dirty Trixie, Rex Ruthless, Weatherman and all
their classmates as the catch criminals...and try to avoid detention! And look
for a trio of super friends to drop by in the form of guest-stars Captain
Marvel, Mary Marvel, and the legendary Isis!
In 1981, Kid Super Power Hours with Shazam! debuted, combining
live-action skits, comedy, and songs with the adventures of Hero High
and Shazam! Kids worldwide were dazzled by the spandex characters who
joked with them from onstage, before introducing their dynamic stories. Now,
Filmation Studios' entire Hero High series is collected for the first
time ever, digitally-remastered on DVD along with a prom-sized helping of
special features, including some of the rare live-action footage. You won't
even have to study hard to enjoy your super-education!
