Next month, Courtney Whitmore will don her own star-spangled costume and succeed Sylvester Pemberton as the latest hero to wield the cosmic staff. But fortunately, she won’t be alone in her fight against the forces of evil. The CW has just debuted another Stargirl trailer that shows the members of the new-and-improved Justice Society of America in action.
Since this is Courney’s adventure, most of the new footage centers on her. We see new shots of her honing her skills with her signature weapon and butting heads with her step-father, Pat Dugan, a.k.a. S.T.R.I.P.E. The trailer starts out on a grim note by showing us Pemberton’s death. However, it soon becomes clear that Stargirl will be a mostly lighthearted series, thanks in no small part to Courtney’s spunky attitude. And with a new generation of heroes by her side, including Wildcat, Hourman, and Doctor Mid-Night, she should have no problem fitting in among other DC staples.

The new teaser also highlights the series’ villains, the perfunctorily-named Injustice Society. DC fans should recognize a few familiar faces like Brainwave, Dragon King, Sportsmaster and Tigress. Regardless, it’s Icicle who arguably steals the entire spot, as the visual effects used to bring him to life are undeniably impressive.
Stargirl will premiere on DC Universe on May 18 and hit The CW the following night at 10pm. You can check out the new trailer for the series below, then share your thoughts in the comment section!
