Stargirl Season 1 Preview: The JSA's First Mission Might Be Its Last

Heading into next week's episode of DC Universe and The CW's Stargirl, things are looking pretty good for Courtney (Brec Bassinger). She's got Cameron Gellman's Hourman, Anjelika Washington's Dr. Mid-Nite, and Yvette Monreal's Wildcat as part of her new Justice League, as well as a lead on the Injustice League. What has us concerned heading into "The Justice Society"? Well, we know Pat's (Luke Wilson) got some words for Courtney after finding a certain green lantern. Then there's the matter of her "team" not exactly feeling like they're on the same page when it comes to why they're together, and did we mention that they haven't had their first major mission yet? But they're still planning to take on a group that took down the original JSA? Yeah, if it feels like things are about to get really real? You're right, as you're about to see in the following preview images and promo (and yes, it does kinda look like Sportsmaster and Tigress got their costumes off the sets of several other popular series and films):
