Originally premiered on the now defunct DC Universe app, star girl focused on the story of high school student Courtney Whitmore, who discovers the mysterious cosmic staff wielded by the hero Starman. When she discovers her stepfather Pat Dugan was Starman’s superhero sidekick and member of the Justice Society of America, Courtney begins recruiting a new generation of heroes to form a new team while battling a mysterious threat. evil in the city of Blue Valley.
The first season was popular with audiences and critics for its mix of teenage melodrama that worked for shows like buffy the vampire slayer and Smallville, while blending a love for classic superheroes from the golden era of DC Comics history that are often overlooked. The series has been renewed for a second season where it has taken up permanent residence on The CW, and is set to premiere the third season on the network sometime this year, though the show’s fate beyond that is currently unknown in the wake of not only Warner Cancellation by Bros. Discovery of many DC series but also the recent acquisition of The CW by Nexstar.
star girl spotlighted a number of classic DC heroes, with the first season featuring the new, younger incarnations of Wildcat, Doctor Midnight, and Hourman in addition to the Golden Age hero Shining Knight. The second season introduced audiences to Jade, the daughter of the original Green Lantern, Jakeem the Thunderbolt, and the addition of Jay Garrick’s Flash, once again played by the Arrowverse’s John Wesley Shipp. Season three is sure to introduce even more heroes, so these are the characters we want to see join. star girl in season three and beyond.
Created by Roy Thomas and Jerry Ordway in 1983, Obsidian’s real name is Todd Rice and is the brother of superhero Jade and the son of the first Green Lantern, Alan Scott. In star girl season two, Jade (Ysa Penarejo) searches for Todd only to find he’s been taken by the Helix Institute for Youth Rehabilitation. Obsidian’s powers contrast sharply with his sister, as he has the ability to merge his body with shadows and manipulate them. Todd is also one of DC’s most openly gay superheroes and fits right in with the various forward-thinking Justice Society rosters featured in star girl.
The reason Obsidian is so low on the list is because it’s pretty much confirmed the character will appear. Tim Gabriel has already been cast on the show, and the sibling dynamic will likely be a big part of the show’s third season.
6 Sand seller
A classic DC Comics character, Sandman was a founding member of the original Justice Society of America in the comics. Sandman, real name Wesley Dodd, was created by Gardner Fox and Bert Christman in 1939 and is very much inspired by the early pulp heroes popular at the time. He adopts a sidekick named Sandy, who eventually takes over the role of Sandman. Both versions of the character would fit into the star girl universe as a potential, older, established hero that matches a more classic dough aesthetic to the colorfully costumed crime fighters of the JSA.
While the name Sandman is usually associated with the Vertigo Comics version of the character named Dream. This more popular incarnation of Sandman is set to have its own Netflix series premiering in August 2022. Still, there’s still room for the original Sandman or his sidekick Sandy in the larger DC Multiverse, and the original version of the character deserves his time in the projector.
5 Ma Hunkel
Ma Hunkel is from All-American Comics #3 in 1939, created by Sheldon Mayer, and a year later in 1940 adopted the superhero mantle of Red Tornado (although she has no association with the modern DC hero). Ma Hunkel broke ground a lot as she was one of the first superhero parodies, as well as one of the first female superhero characters, and is the first heroine to cross-dress when disguised as a man. Her comics were generally more comedic in nature, but she was a supporting player during the original Justice Society of America comic. In the modern era of the team, she is the grandmother of the character Cyclone (who will make the leap to the big screen in Justice Society seen in black adamlisten)) and acts as guardian of the Justice Society headquarters.
Bring Ma Hunkel in star girl as a member of the Justice Society, helps diversify the age range of the team, which aside from Pat is made up of all the young heroes, but also fits into the series’ central theme of the big potential of a hero from all walks of life. Ma Hunkel’s age shouldn’t stop her from being a hero, and she could be a valuable member of the team, able to impart wisdom to everyone, and could even act as a surrogate parental figure. for characters like Rick Tyler, Jade, and Obsidian who don’t have solid home lives.
As audiences encountered a version of Judomaster on Peacemaker, star girl has the chance to introduce another version of the character to her own Earth, specifically Sonia Sato. Sonia Sato was created by Gail Simone and Nicola Scott in the pages of Birds of prey in 2007 and is a martial arts expert seeking revenge against the person who killed her father.
The character of Sonia Sato has indeed already appeared on star girl in a cameo role played by Kristen Lee in the season two episode “Summer School: Chapter Ten”, laying the possible groundwork for the character to appear, similar to how Jakeem Williams was named in season one before to appear in season two. Another Blue Valley kid becoming a superhero is very much the Justice Society of America’s modus operandi, and having a character who specializes in martial arts would be a great way to shake up the show’s action scenes.
3 crimson avenger
There have been a few different versions of the Crimson Avengers in the pages of DC Comics, and while it would make sense to introduce the original incarnation of the pulp hero who was a member of the Seven Soldiers of Victory alongside the Shining Knight, star girl should introduce the Jill Carlye version instead. Created by Geoff Johns and Scott Kolins, Jill Carlye’s Crimson Avenger debuted in an issue of the original Stargirl comic Stars and STRIPES #9.
Much like how the heroes of the Justice Society on star girl earned their nicknames by adopting the original heroes’ items, Jill Carlyle obtained a pair of cursed Colt pistols belonging to the original Crimson Avenger. We don’t even know if Jill Carlye is even her real name. The character opens up a lot of story possibilities for star girl, as it gives them a more supernatural, darker hero and creates a dramatic question of whether the character can fit in with more upbeat Justice Society heroes. Crimson Avenger could in many ways be the Wolverine of the group, the rogue who must find a way to work together as a team.
2 fast jesse
Introduced in the flash Television series, Jesse Quick is the Arrowverse version of the comic book character of the same name who is also named Jesse Chambers. In the Arrowverse, Jesse Quick was born on Earth 2 before being destroyed in the lead up to Crisis on Infinite Earths. His fate remained unknown after the multiverse was restored at the end of the event, but given that Stargirl now occupies the Earth 2 moniker, it would be interesting to see Jesse Quick brought into the series as a survivor of a version lost from Earth 2.
The inclusion of Jesse Quick could introduce star girl and the other members of the Justice Society to the concept of the multiverse, perhaps establishing more crossovers with the Arrowverse. It provides this new Justice Society with its own speedster while giving the character a new home and the ability to use it in ways that the flash the series never quite could. He feels bad, the character was just killed off screen with no more mentions given to him, and on star girlthe hero might find a new purpose.
While audiences are probably now more familiar with the modern version of Vigilante thanks to his appearance on Arrow and more recently Peacemaker, the name actually originally belonged to another DC hero, Greg Saunders, who had a cowboy-themed aesthetic. Created by Mort Weisinger and Mort Meskin, Vigilante first appeared in action comics #42 in November 1941, which was the same comic Superman originated from and would continue to appear in every issue of action comics until 1954. Saunders is the son of a Wyoming sheriff, and while he originally dreamed of becoming a country music star, he ends up becoming a costumed superhero after his father’s death .
Vigilante was so popular at the time that he was one of the first superheroes to get movie series around him in 1947, a year before Superman. star girl laid the groundwork for the character to appear as the Seven Soldiers of Victory, a team Vigilante was part of, was shown in the series, and the character Shining Knight was last seen looking for his elders teammates. Vigilante would be a welcome addition to daughter of the stars, as the character fits into the series’ amorous admiration for DC’s Golden Age superheroes. This gives Pat Dugan another character of his own age to relate to and further flesh out his past. Vigilante could serve as both a mentor for young superheroes and a lighter support player who enjoys being part of a team and wants to help out in any way possible. It’s time Vigilante was introduced to a whole new generation of DC fans.
