4 Fun Facts About DC’s New Superhero Show Stargirl

Fans of superhero shows and teen dramas will be excited to hear that the new television series Stargirl has premiered on DC Universe. The series, executive produced by Geoff Johns and based off the DC Comics superhero Courtney Whitmore created by Johns and Lee Moder, is the first female-led live-action show on DC. Before you start tuning into the show, here are a few fun facts to know about this exciting new TV hero.

1. Courtney Whitmore Has Been Around for a While

While it may be the first time you’ve heard the name Stargirl, the character Courtney Whitmore has actually been around for quite some time. In fact, she first appeared in the comic book series Stars and S.T.R.I.P.E. in 1999. However, her legacy goes back even further than that – all the way to the 1940s. Back in the mid-20thcentury, DC Comics started up the Star-Spangled Kid and Stripesy comics, in which the titular kid and his chauffeur, Pat Dugan, became a superhero team to combat the Nazis. In the end, the Kid dies and Pat goes on to marry Barbara Whitmore, who later becomes Courtney’s mom.

2. Stargirl Has Numerous Abilities

Nothing draws fans into a superhero show quite like visually stunning powers and abilities, and Stargirl has more than enough to hold anyone’s interest. Some of her abilities include being able to fly, shooting blasts of energy and manipulating force fields. She’s known for her exceptional power, agility and speed. This combination of special abilities is sure to make for highly appealing special effects and dramatic visuals.

3. She Finds Her Uniform in the Basement

Courtney transforms into Stargirl after finding the Star-Spangled Kid’s uniform in the basement of her house. Initially, she dons the outfit just to annoy her stepfather, as you could imagine a typical teenager might do. Still upset with her mom for getting married to Pat, however, she decides to take on the role of the Kid herself and fight evil. Eventually, Pat makes a robotic suit, similar to the one worn by Iron Man, and teams up with her in all kinds of adventures. The two become known as Stargirl and S.T.R.I.P.E.

Courtney also finds a powerful staff to help her in her mission to fight evil and avenge the Kid’s death. With its powers, she is able to accomplish many heroic feats that will keep you on the edge of your seat the entire show.

4. She's Naturally Athletic

One interesting thing to note about this superhero that sets her apart from others is that she’s not born with innate cosmic abilities. In fact, it’s her uniform and staff that give her the abilities of flight, shooting stars and more. However, Courtney herself is very athletic, which helps improve her agility, strength and speed. She’s a trained kickboxer and gymnast and uses her athletic abilities to become an unstoppable force.

If you enjoy teen dramas, superheroes and female-led live-action shows, DC’s new series Stargirl is a show you won’t want to miss. From the character’s humble beginnings to the show’s exciting entertainment value, this is one stunning series you’ll want to start tuning into right away.
