On September 17th, Cartoon Network officially revealed the highly anticipated fourth Powerpuff Girl in an hour long episode entitled Power of Four.
If you haven’t had a chance to tune into the latest episode, we have broken down everything that you need to know about Bliss!
*Note: spoilers ahead
South African singer Toya Delazy revealed that she is lending her voice to Bliss, but she's not the only one. Delazy joins a group of voice actresses from around the world who will also be voicing the 4th Powerpuff girl.
Bliss, which is short for Blisstina Francesca Francia Mariam Alicia Utonium, was actually Professor’s first daughter. She was created using Chemical W, which gave her unique telekinetic, teleportation, and energy powers.
The girls are just now discovering Bliss because she ran away since she couldn't control her powers which are tied to her emotions. . After Bliss threw a tantrum over milk and destroyed Professor's house, she chose to leave Townsville to keep others safe.
Since Bliss was created first, the series decided to make her a teenager. In the episode, you will notice longer legs, electric blue hair and all of the explosive attitude that comes typical with a teenager (we just hope they don't play into the "angry Black woman" stereotype...the verdict is still out).
What a twist! It turns out that Bliss was best friends with Mojo Jojo back when he was still the Professor’s assistant.
Because Bliss couldn't control her emotions, she was forced to flee to the deserted Bird Poop Island. What a backstory for the series' first brown Powerpuff Girl...
At the end of the episode, Bliss left! Though, with all of the hub bub of the 4th Powerpuff Girl, we have a feeling that she will be back soon.
