Get your cape on! The DC Super Hero Girls are getting their very own line of action figures. 

The superhero merchandise will be sold exclusively at Target starting next month. And they'll be the first Mattel action figures marketed to girls.

DC Comics announced its Super Hero Girls franchise last year in an effort to help young girls "build character and confidence."

In its Web series, the girls, including Wonder Woman, Supergirl and Batgirl"hone their super powers in a high school setting."

"Cheetah, you know the speed limit in the hall is 25," a character in the series says.

DC announced the Super Hero Girls will also be getting a TV show on Boomerang in the spring.
