DC Comics and Mattel are teaming up to turn young girls into superhero fans.

The two companies will create a line of action figures made to appeal to girls ages 6 to 12, featuring DC's most famous female superheroes.

The line will include teenage versions of Batgirl, Wonder Woman, Supergirl, Poison Ivy, Harley Quinn, Bumblebee and Katana. 

In addition to the action figures, DC Comics and its parent company Warner Bros. will launch animated features, books, clothing and toys featuring the female characters.

The new superhero universe designed just for girls is expected to come out this fall.
