    It was a nice touch that any time one of the JSA tried to fight on their own, they got their butts kicked, but whenever they tried to work together, they did OK. I'm not sure any of them noticed, but I'm sure that time will come...
    Well, logically I don't think pretty much anybody should have much trouble figuring out who pretty much anybody is... Not quite Supergirl/Kara bad, but in that general ballpark. ;)

    I think they're going with the modern name of this character -- the closed captions used Tigress, not Huntress.

    I'd think he'd know if he had the complete JSA files but maybe he only had it for Brainwave?

    Whoops.
    I guess they don't want people confusing Paula Brooks with Helena Bertinelli.
    (And I've read Young All-Stars.)

    Pulls them out of his...

    No. Stargirl is supposed to be a high school sophomore, so I guess I don't know.

    LOT has already crossed over with the JSA, and Stargirl was teased during the last crossover, so I don't think that would be unreasonable.

    I'm thinking that they decided to air it on both the DCU and the CW for financial reasons. They get commercial revenue from the CW and it also helps to promote the DCU. When people realize there's extra material on the DCU version they may be inclined to check it out and subscribe. So far it looks like they may have only done that with the first few episodes on the DCU. They win either way and reach a much wider audience.

    I'm enjoying the show so far, but the kids are far too impulsive and reckless, especially Hourman. I'm thinking it's just a matter of time before one of them bites the bullet unless they get their act together.

    I was wondering about Green Lantern's ring too. The power battery appears to be damaged so I'm wondering if it's even still functional. I'm not up to speed on all of the characters in the original Justice Society or the Injustice Society so it looks like I have a little homework to do when I find the time. Considering the title of the episode was The Justice Society it makes me wonder if they'll be introducing any additional members. Here's the image they have over at epguides.com so it makes me think that's everone.

    The theory that they're preparing to kill DCU also holds water (see also Doom Patrol, simulcasting on HBO Max)...

    If they do kill it, I hope there is another avenue to get the content in 4K HDR. It's not on HBO Max, or when purchased from stores like iTunes or Amazon.

    I have a hunch HBO Max will go 4K eventually. Probably sooner rather than later. They're betting too much on that being their premiere streaming service not to.

    I was kinda happy that the novice fighters got the bejesus knocked out of them in their first real fight against a couple of seasoned super villains.

    That doesn't surprise me. I can't see how a streaming service with so little content can survive these days. The bulk of their content is animated from what I've seen.

    LOL, point taken. Raised two of them and they were nowhere near as bad as the kids on Stargirl.

    Well, it's magical so I suspect that someone with sufficient will power and a connection to the Starheart could repair it.
    Could be Alan Scott.
    Could be Jennie Lynn Hayden.

    Sportsmaster was originally a nemesis of the Golden Age Green Lantern so I want to see a scene like this, whether it's Alan Scott or someone else.

    Sportmaster: Green Lantern! And today's the day I packed the aluminum bat!

    Tigress: So you're not prepared to fight the Green Lantern but you are prepared to fight the Green Guardsman?

    Would the British call him Sportmaster instead of our Sportsmaster?

    I thought the reason the JSA HQ was on (green) fire during the JSA/ISA fight was because the lantern exploded. How can it be intact in the present? In any case, it's useless without the ring. It fact, it would have made more sense for the ring to have been on display in the mansion. Come to think of it, why were any of those objects, some of which are extremely dangerous, left lying out in the open? Wouldn't the ISA have ransacked the place once everyone was dead?

    Speaking of the mansion, isn't it in LA? Courtney and Pat seemed to get there and back in record time from Nebraska.

    It was never explicited stated that the Power Battery exploded.
    It was implied that the green fire was Green Lantern's energy.

    Is it?

    Alan Scott learned to channel the Starheart power without his ring after it was destroyed in Zero Hour.
    Jennie Lynn didn't need a ring.
    Hal Jordan recently created a new ring through sheer force of will (and a deeper connection to the Green energy of Will).

    Plus there was a pre Crisis story where the Secret Society of Super Villains encountered the Crime Syndicate when the Society got trapped on Earth-Three.
    The Wizard (yes, that Wizard) needed three talismans to cast a spell to get them to Earth-Two.
    The talismans were Superwoman's lasso, Johnny Quick's speed helmet, and Power Ring's power ring.
    They stole the items and the Syndicate came after the SSSV.
    Power Ring didn't have his ring but he was using his will to channel power directly from his power battery to create constructs.


    I'm sure Pat locked the door.
    (I suspect he did clean up the place as well. Maybe he had some help from Rex Tyler.)

    They have the Cosmic Staff and a giant exosuit and you're questioning how fast they can get to Los Angeles?
    (BTW, the initial shots of the JSA mansion would put in just west of Bronson Canyon/Bronson Cave, maybe around Lake Hollywood. I think that's somewhat off the beaten path.)

    IIRC Pat said the battery could kill Courtney but it was useless without the ring.

    I'm sure locking the mansion would be a deterrent ...

    Alan Scott originally created his ring from the metal of the lantern (back in All-American Comics #16).

    No reason why a new JSA GL couldn't do the same..

    I don't know anything about the Justice Society's Green Lantern but if he has the same powers of the current one, wouldn't that blow this show's special effects budget rather quickly?
