Two episodes into the DC Universe and The CW's live-action Stargirl, and it's already pretty clear that Courtney (Brec Bassinger) and Pat (Luke Wilson) are going to need a little back-up when they take on Henry King aka Brainwave (Christopher James Baker), Jordan Mahkent aka Icicle (Neil Jackson), and the rest of the Injustice Society. Considering they took down the previous version of the Justice Society of America, having a crew as back-up is definitely not a bad idea.
Stargirl and S.T.R.I.P.E. will need their own JSA for what's ahead, and that's going to include Anjelika Washington's Beth Chapel aka Doctor Mid-Nite, Yvette Monreal's Yolanda Montez aka Wildcat, and Cameron Gellman's Rick Tyler aka Hourman. All of this has us wondering if this is what Amy Smart's Barbara Whitmore had in mind when she thought of starting a new life in a new place. We're thinking probably not, but at least we're getting a chance to know them all a little better with the following character profile key art images. Following those, check out an early preview for next week's episode "Icicle".
Stargirl season 1, episode 3 "Icicle": THIS IS OUR DESTINY — After a dangerous confrontation with a member of the Injustice Society of America, Pat (Luke Wilson) warns Courtney (Brec Bassinger) to back down from her attempts to go after them. But when she encounters what she believes to be a message from one of them, she urges Pat to help her. Meanwhile, Barbara (Amy Smart) makes strides at work, which impresses her new boss Jordan (Neil Jackson). Yvette Monreal, Anjelika Washington, Trae Romano, Christopher James Baker, Meg DeLacy and Hunter Sansone also star. Michael Nankin directed the episode, written by Colleen McGuinness.
