The tagline "The Line of DC Super-Stars" was used as a brand emblem on comic books published by DC Comics beginning in December 1973 and ending January 1977. The DC Super Stars series began with a March 1976 cover date. A recurring feature of the title's early run was "DC Super-Stars of Space", special issues reprinting Silver Age science-fiction stories starring such characters as Adam Strange, Hawkman, the Atomic Knights, Space Cabbie, Captain Comet, Tommy Tomorrow, the Star Rovers, and Space Ranger.
The series' middle period was marked by theme issues — Aquaman, heroes with guns, sports, magic-users — until issue #12, which heralded the title's second original story, featuring Superboy. From that point until DC Super Stars was cancelled after issue #18, the series contained new stories about a range of different characters (some being showcased for their own titles), as well as a collection of "secret origin" stories. The Bronze Age Huntress made her first appearance in DC Super Stars #17 (November/December 1977) in a story written by Paul Levitz and drawn by Joe Staton and Bob Layton.
