Comic Con is being held at San Diego this year and news is pouring daily from it. From the DC’s panel we have got some major news for the fans. DC superhero Stargirl is set to come to DC’s Streaming Service!
According to THR, with Geoff Johns with executive producer and writer is set to write a 13 – episode script for the Stargirl series. Greg Berlanti will be producing the series through Berlanti Productions. The show will premiere on DC universe sometime in 2019.
Stargirl was created by Johns and Lee Moder and was first seen in July 1999’s Stars and S.T.R.I.P.E. #1. The story follows Courtney Whitmore aka Stargirl, a high school student who sets up and leads an unlikely group of young heroes to battle villains of the past. The very first superhero team, the Justice Society of America, will be featured too.
Courtney came across a Cosmic Converter Belt of Dugan’s old partner, Star-Spangled Kid, she donned it on a childish whim just to spite her stepfather. Courtney eventually got a taste of being a hero, and took on the mantle and name of Star-Spangled Kid. Pat also built himself a powered armour dubbed S.T.R.I.P.E., so that he could accompany and watch over Courtney in her escapades. They became the fighting duo known as Stars and S.T.R.I.P.E.
Courtney was a dexterous kick-boxer and gymnast; and the Belt and Rod granted her an array of abilities, including flight, superhuman strength, agility, stamina, speed, shoot “stars”, and energy manipulation.
While Stargirl was a character not many fans would remember but it gained popularity when it was released and therefore DC thought to bring the superhero to the streaming service. While fans are hyped to know Stargirl’s return to small screen, very less actually know about the character and her story, It will be interesting to see how this goes with the fans when the series will start streaming.
DC Universe launches in August and will feature six original series, including Stargirl. The rest are Titans, Swamp Thing,arley Quinn, Doom Patrol, Metropolis, and Young Justice: Outsiders.
