The CW and DC Universe's upcoming live-action Stargirl is less than two weeks away from taking the spotlight (May 18 on the streaming service, following day on the network), when Brec Bassinger's Courtney Whitmore is faced with a destiny that she's more than willing to embrace. The only thing she's asking for? Maybe a little time to learn the ropes, but it doesn't look like that's going to happen. Courtney will have to learn on the job if she wants to inspire the next generation of justice. Joining stepdad/teammate Pat Dugan (Luke Wilson) aka big robot muscle S.T.R.I.P.E. in helping Courtney learn the ropes is a new "Justice Society of America" with a roster than includes Anjelika Washington's Beth Chapel aka Doctor Mid-Nite; Yvette Monreal's Yolanda Montez aka Wildcat; and Cameron Gellman's Rick Tyler aka Hourman.
Of course, what kind of superhero series would Stargirl be if there wasn't an equal-yet-opposing team of super-villains waiting to do to this generation of heroes what it did to the JSA? In the following teaser, viewers get to meet the Injustice Society of America, the villains that have learned from the past and have every intention of repeating it: Henry King aka Brainwave (Christopher James Baker); Paula Brooks aka Tigress (Joy Osmanski); Lawrence "Crusher" Crock aka Sportsmaster (Neil Hopkins); Dr. Ito aka Dragon King (Nelson Lee); and Jordan Mahkent aka Icicle (Neil Jackson).
