Things We Saw Today: DC’s Stargirl Season 2 Trailer Introduces Green Lantern’s Daughter

The Justice Society of America is back!

DC’s Stargirl and the gang are back in the season 2 trailer that The CW just dropped! Courtney, our leading lady played by Brec Bassinger, is told by the rest of the new Justice Society of America that their job is basically done. They’ve defeated the bad guy so what else is there? Unfortunately, more bad guys, as they soon learn. Eclipso (Nick Tarabay) and The Shade (Jonathan Cake) are the new foes, with a dash of everyone’s hot mess Cindy a.k.a. Shiv (Meg DeLacy) as an old foe.

That’s not the only thing threatening the new Justice Society of America. Being a teenager and the growing pains that come with being so young are also on the minds of our young heroes. Courtney in particular has to face her mother and stepfather knowing about her superhero adventures and calling her out when need be to ground her and show her there is a world outside of just being a superhero. We bet that the rest of the gang is going to deal with the same thing but in different doses because Courtney can’t be the only one going through teenager problems.

Then there’s the whole Green Lantern of it all. Ysa Penarejo has made her debut as Jade, the daughter of Green Lantern Alan Scott. This young actress is known for her roles in Project Mc² and Red Ruby. In the comics, Alan Scott is the OG Green Lantern and one of the founding members of the Justice Society of America. Jennie-Lynn Hayden and Todd Rice are his kids that were separated from Scott and raised by adoptive parents. Jennie-Lynn started developing powers due to her father’s connection to the Starheart and after some time took on the identity of Jade.

I’m particularly excited as to why Jade has broken into Stargirl’s home and is fighting our hero when a simple knock on the door and explanation could’ve made things go a little more smoothly. But that would be too easy for DC’s Stargirl and would deprive us of a kickass fight scene between these two young women aka the kind of introduction that they’ll remember forever.
