Stargirl questions

Post by RingOtaku » 01 Dec 2016, 20:37

So trying to track down a couple moments in the history of Courtney Whitmore. At some point in her history she inherits the Star Rod from the Starman line of heroes to go along with her cosmic converter belt. What issue did she get the Star Rod?

Second question is When did Courtney meet the JSA? I read her solo book and the modern JSA volumes and it just seemed like she suddenly started hanging out with them before the modern team was formed.

All this being pre-New 52 era. Just to clarify.

The JSA reformed at the funeral for Wesley Dodd, the original Sandman. The events of JSA Secret Files #1 acted as a #0 issue leading into JSA #1. Courtney was present for the funeral, which was the inciting incident for the Justice Society coming back together with her as a member. She met a couple members of the JSA prior to that, but not a formed team.

Courtney inherited the Cosmic Staff from Jack Knight when he retired as Starman, sort of cross-promoted in Starman's last issue, Starman (2nd series) #80, and his departure from the team in JSA #15. Courtney officially changed her name shortly after that, from Star-Spangled Kid to Stargirl, in the limited series JSA All-Stars #4.

ah okay. Never found a copy of Secret Files and hadn't tackled the Jack Knight series yet. Saw his departure in JSA 15 but I missed the other part.

Thanks as always Monolith.
