DC Comics is known for having an amazing stable of characters both good and bad. Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Joker, and Lex Luthor: all of these names are synonymous with the DC brand.
Now thanks to the hit show Stargirl (streaming on both DC Universe and The CW), audiences are able to learn about another core group from DC Comics: The Justice Society of America and in particular, Courtney Whitmore/Stargirl.
The JSA is one of the fundamental super-teams in comics. Not only is its roster composed of both first-generation heroes such as Green Lantern (Alan Scott) and Flash (Jay Garrick), but second- and even third-generation heroes as well. With adventures going all the way back to the 1940’s and WWII, this group has been delighting audiences for generations.
Stargirl is a newer character, created in 1999 by Geoff Johns to honor his sister, who passed away in the TWA Flight 800 explosion in 1996. Since her first appearance years ago, Stargirl has become a core part of the Justice Society. She embodies the best qualities of what it means to be a hero, about standing up for what is right even in the face of overwhelming odds, all while still facing the same challenges that come with being a teenager.
Even though the first season still has seven episodes to go before it wraps up, DC and Warner Bros. have put out a press release about the Stargirl Blu-Ray, along with a photo of the gorgeous box art (see below).
