Soon to star in her very own live action series, Stargirl by Geoff Johns (Doomsday Clock, Flashpoint, Justice League) collects his earliest work at DC Comics as he introduces the young woman who becomes Stargirl, Courtney Whitmore!
Before her adventures with the Justice Society of America as Stargirl, Courtney Whitmore was part just a normal kid.
When Courtney discovers her stepfather, Pat Dugan was the sidekick of the original Star-Spangled Kid, she decides to teach him a lesson for marrying her mother and moving from Los Angeles to Nebraska! After finding his old gear in his belongings, Courtney dons the costume and becomes the all-new Star-Spangled Kid! Seeing no other alternative Pat constructs an 8-foot mechanical suit of armor and takes the codename S.T.R.I.P.E. to protect her!
