A children’s network is launching a new show featuring a transsexual superhero.

It’s called “Shezow.”

The show follows the adventures of a 12-year-old boy named Guy who uses a magic ring to transform himself into a crime-fighting girl.

When guy says the magic words “you go girl!” he becomes Shezow, wearing a purple skirt and cape, as well as pink gloves and white boots.

It will air on the Hub Network.

CORRECTION: A headline on an earlier version of this story inaccurately described this character as transgender.
