Harley Quinn decided on using some Magic Paint to perfect her comic book project for June Moone's art project despite her warning. While the girls looked at Wonder Woman's comic, one of Harley's drawings of herself came to life and immediately had trouble planned. It lacked an humanity to allow it to be good nor a heart that cared about others. It went into Wonder Woman's comic and stole a drawing of her Lasso of Truth but claimed it fell into her hands as she walked by. After Wonder Woman demanded it back, it hit her in the nose with the lasso. It claimed to come from Harley's subconscious. Harley pointed out her comic was about an alternate universe where she was a villain. It preferred "anti-hero" then bopped Harley in the head with its mallet. Things got worse when it squirted magic paint on the other comic projects. Soon all the art came to life and agreed they were in the mood for mayhem. They attacked Wonder Woman, Supergirl, Katana, and Harley Quinn. Wonder Woman believed they had to ask Ms. Moone for help.

Harley didn't want detention for the 142nd time in the current school year. The art ran for the door while three of Wonder Woman's Wondies tied them up in a Lasso of Truth rather easily. Wonder Woman explained she made herself in her story with better aim, auto-targeting, and an inescapable lasso. The animated art wrecked havoc across the school. A Bumblebee drawing fought Frost in the science lab and blew up her chemistry project. A Cyborg drawing was grabbed by Lady Shiva in the main hall but he got loose and gave her a paper cut. The main Harley art smashed Flash's finger with her mallet then sent Katana's drawings of herself and Beast Boy after him and Green Lantern. The Wondies tied up Cheetah with a lasso then tossed her into a trash can after she tried to bargain with them. A Starfire drawing tried to destroy the greenhouse. Ivy defended it with a fly swatter. Batgirl was in the library reading "Advanced Hero Hideouts" when Supergirl's drawing of Batgirl and Baticorn arrived and proclaimed it was the smartest girl in the world.

They began to ingest pages from "Speedy Dinners for Fast Supers" and grew in size and strength. It attempted to grab a superfood cake recipe but Batgirl took the book away. It sent Baticorn, snorting flames, after her. Batgirl distracted it with pages about Rainbow Sprinkle Mosquito Pie supposedly. The Supergirl drawing grabbed Batgirl by the collar and threatened to feed her to Baticorn but Batgirl politely asked to have some last words and requested a red book at the top of a shelf. While the Supergirl drawing gave the Batgirl drawing half of Best Friends Forever Charm stolen from Star Sapphire, Batgirl found a page on Kryptonite and threw it. While the Supergirl drawing was weakened, Batgirl fled the library. With the drawings stronger from feasting on pages, the evil Harley led them on a crime spree in Metropolis. They attacked a bank and tied up citizens. The evil Harley smashed up a car windshield with her mallet. The Save the Day alarm was soon triggered.

The three Wonder Women robbed a Metropolis Bank branch of money, jewels, and... a rock off someone's desk while the Harley defaced the storefront with graffiti. Harley, Starfire, Bumblebee, Katana, Beast Boy, Cyborg, Supergirl, Wonder Woman, and Batgirl took on the army of art but reached a stalemate at every turn. Instead of surrendering, the Harley knocked Katana's sword out of her hand then a hydrant, splashing Wonder Woman, and a ladder, knocking a painter off. Starfire and her counterpart traded star bolt blasts. The Katana and Beast Boy immobilized Supergirl temporarily when the latter sat on her in the form of a hippo. The Batgirl and Supergirl used manifested the might of maximum friendship and a swarm of butterflies appeared and carried Batgirl away. Beast Boy opted to try and infiltrate their ranks and sway them to their side over the course of three to six months. Supergirl grabbed Batgirl and used her super-breath on them. Batgirl and Supergirl spied on their counterparts as they raided an ice cream cart in a Centennial Park.

They were overheard and confronted. Both sides agreed that both Supergirls fighting would result in both losing. Batgirl proposed an ice cream eating contest. They accepted and the Supergirl fell prey to a brain freeze. Batgirl and Supergirl left the park and searched for Harley. Batgirl got an idea to have Harley make a new comic to fight the bad art. Wonder Woman was tasked with keeping the bad art occupied in the meantime. She left Cyborg to secure the sector while her and Katana pursued the Harley into a Super-Buy. The Bumblebee followed and stole several albums of Black Canary's "The Canary Cries" but a civilian used a flying drone to trick it into dropping them. Black Canary neutralized the Batgirl and Supergirl drawings with her Canary Cry. Wonder Woman and Bumblebee took one of Wildcat's sayings to heart and stole two Lassoes of Truth from the three Wonder Women. They lured them into the Craft of Warworld booth with an avatar of Wonder Woman then wrapped up the booth with the Lassoes. The Wonder Woman were unable to escape.

Batgirl, Supergirl, Frost and Ivy finished making more Magic Paint and returned to the art room. Enchantress stole them and painted herself an army based on Doomsday, Animal Vegetable Mineral Man, Starro, Creature Commandos, and Stanley's Monster. Once they emerged from the painting, Enchantress proceeded with her plan to take over the school. The animated Harley stopped stealing at Super Buy and marched the others back to Super Hero High. She claimed it was her home, too, and loved it so much she should be the one taking over. At Black Canary's suggestion, Wonder Woman called a truce with the animated Harley until Enchantress was defeated. The animated Starro redirected Starfire's Starbolt out of a sucker back at her then regenerated a tentacle sliced off by Katana. The severed tentacle whacked her. To make matters worse, it didn't have ears and was immune to Black Canary's Canary Cry.

The animated Animal-Vegetable-Mineral Man ate the animated Harley's mallet. The animated Stanley's Monster tried eating Beast Boy's pumpernickel and arm. Bumblebee was on her own against the animated Creature Commandos while the Wondies fought over who should be the leader. Wonder Woman, Supergirl, and Batgirl didn't fare any better against the animated Doomsday and went flying. It picked up Ivy next, prompting Harley to try and save the day. She returned inside and finally got an idea. She recalled when she got her papers back from her teachers they were often marked up with a red pen. She raced back outside and animated the red pen with Magic Paint. Li'l Red crossed out Doomsday then it disappeared in a puff of smoke. Ivy thanked Harley. She directed the pen to take out the rest of Enchantress' army. Her drawing of Harley admitted she was impressed but the pen continued to get larger and destroyed the rest of the animated art until it was left.

The Harley drawing's hair urged her to appeal to her creator's ego. She attempted to propose a team up but Harley thought being good was more fun and didn't want to share the spotlight. The Harley art was deleted. Harley raised up Li'l Red and declared the pen was mightier than the sword.
