Courtney Fights for Truth, Justice & 5th Period Lunch in Stargirl Clip

Though the live-action Stargirl made its debut on DC Universe on Monday, Courtney Whitmore (Brec Bassinger) is set to make her debut on The CW (further fueling online chatter about an Arrowverse crossover, after "Crisis on Infinite Earths") starting Tuesday night. To mark the occasion, the network released a sneak preview clip showing the problems Courtney's already finding herself in. A new town, a new family, and especially a new stepdad in Pat Dugan (Luke Wilson), are a lot for a teenager to deal with. Adjusting to a new high school just amplifies that stress by a thousand, especially when you're made to feel like an outsider. But as you're about to see, sometimes even the toughest of matters can have a silver lining, as Courtney meets some classmates who will play major roles in her future as a superhero. Let's just hope she doesn't get suspended first:
