DC’s Stargirl Season 2 Is a Delightful Teen Drama

DC’s Stargirl Season 2 is a delightful superhero drama that focuses on the present but also delves into the past as high school teen Courtney Whitmore (played by Brec Bassinger) discovers items once owned by the Justice Society of America which she and her young friends then use to save the world.

Courtney Whitmore Discovers the JSA

In Season 1, Courtney and her friends learned how to handle new superpowers they gained through the tools her stepfather Pat (Luke Wilson) was protecting on behalf of the Justice Society, also known as the JSA.

In Season 2 of DC’s Stargirl, written by Geoff Johns, Courtney and her teen friends find themselves as well as discover more superhero paraphernalia. The show also explores the history of the JSA that eventually led to the Justice League.

Stargirl and Other Superheroes

As Courtney struggles to balance her superhero calling with schoolwork, new characters come onto the scene. It’s fun watching Green Lantern’s daughter Jade (performed by Ysa Penarejo) fly for the first time.

Another character, Jakeem Thunder (portrayed by Alkoya Brunson), is a lonely teen who hides in his room and plays video games until Pat’s son Mike discovers a pen holding the genie Thunderbolt (voiced by Jim Gaffigan). Mike wishes the pen were in better hands, and it suddenly appears on Jakeem’s desk.

Stargirl Battles Evil Villains

The dreaded Eclipso also joins Season 2, making a terrifying entrance worthy of any horror movie award. He proves a fearsome match for young Courtney. As she and her young superhero friends battle evil, other great characters come along, including Rick Tyler who portrays the son of Hourman and who takes on his father’s mantle.

Stargirl Returns in Season 3

In DC’s Stargirl Season 3 expect the return of Bassinger, and Wilson along with Amy Smart and with the rest of Courtney’s teen pals and enemies. Sportsmaster (played by Neil Hopkins) will also be a regular on the show. He’s a criminal who’s fond of exploding baseballs and other deadly sports paraphernalia. In season 2, he and his wife Tigress (played by Joy Osmanski) snuck out of prison to watch their daughter’s football tryouts. Their softer sides were shown in Season 2 and viewers can likely expect more of this character depth in Season 3.

From exploring the Justice League’s past to the present struggles of teenage superheroes learning new skills, DC’s Stargirl is a fun ride you don’t want to miss.
