Trivia

There were also "plans in the future for things" For the first season, Brec Bassinger felt the original Doctor Mid-Nite-Charles McNider would have "a significant role to play", while Geoff Johns added the season would establish the Seven Soldiers of Victory as the first superhero team before the JSA and explore the history of the Cosmic Staff.

The cosmic staff turns the DC Comics logo into the Warner Bros logo, in a burst of stars. Both logos are colored red and blue, Stargirl's colors. See more »

All Killer, No Filler!
19 May 2020 | by jester-40564See all my reviews

Just watched the pilot and have to say that I loved it! I wont go into much detail on the actual plot. Its an origin story and sets up Courtney becoming Stargirl as well as moving into a new town and school.

I will say that we start off with an action packed Justice Society America (JSA) fight with the Injustice Society set 10 years in the past. They show us the 4 members who will eventually get 'new' replacements in future episodes as well as the sidekick of Starman - Stripesy (and Courtney's stepdad).

The dialogue throughout is great. It feels natural and is also very funny at times (Joel McHale was very good!), you wont be able to stop yourself smiling as you watch it.

Also, great special effects, from the opening (and closing) fights, to Courtney's training montage with the Cosmic Staff.

As well as the 4 main family leads, we get introduced to a lot of potential friends and rivals at school. We get the mean popular girl and her '2nd' in command - both were very funny. Then we get the over the top mean jocks (hey, you need the small time school villains to counter the actual supervillains - so I gave it a pass) - and then we get a hilarious bit at the 'singles' table. Beth was great here, as was Yolanda's subtle glare at being called one of the losers.

Also, it has to be said, this feels like it was made pre 2015 (in a very good way!) - which means there is no heavy handed identity politics, social justice or man hating, its just a fun story that's well acted and highly entertaining.

If you thought about giving it a miss because you are over the DC CW, this doesn't feel like one of those shows at all. Its its own thing.

I highly recommend it

** Now I just need my fav JSA'er Sanderson Hawkins (Sand) to make an appearance ;)
