"Every super hero needs a super-pet!" begins these origin stories bringing a superhero and animal helper together--Wonder Woman with her super-jumping Amazonian kangaroo (in Jumpa) and Batman with his happy-go-lucky lost dog (in Ace). With their super-cartoony illustrations, these slight, large-format stories--in which the creatures play vital crime-fighting roles--should appeal to young animal-loving superhero fans. Silly jokes are appended. Glos. [Review covers these DC Super-Pets Origin Stories titles: Ace! and Jumpa!] Copyright 2018 Horn Book Guide Reviews.
