    Maybe the show has a sky-high FX budget, and they've been saving it all for when GL shows up..?

    :D

    It’s possible. The show was made for the DC Universe streaming service. The FX on their shows is significantly better than it is for the CW shows.

    Today's episode contains a lot of action. It's part 1 of a 2 part episode, so it leaves off with a cliffhanger.

    Not going to discuss any details of the episode yet as I don't want to post spoilers.

    Considering the Starheart killed a number of people when it first arrived on Earth in Ancient China (see the aforementioned All-American Comics #16), Pat's not wrong.

    Can someone explain who the Mean Girl student, her father are and who the janitor probably is? Is there are good online source for this information?

    The mean girl is Shiv, her father is Dr Ito (Dragon King) and the theory on the janitor (And spoiled by a future episode title) is
    Sir Justin, the Shining Knight.

    Well, it's hardly a theory...his name is Justin, he has a sword, he knows Stripesy...if that doesn't tell us who it is, nothing will! ;)

    I'm assuming Shiv has been training her whole life? Or is she an extra powerful ISA future member?

    She was a much tougher opponent than expected.

    She has some kind of superpowers (Daddy was talking about giving them to her)...

    I'm pretty sure that a sword isn't standard janitorial issue in Blue Valley.

    She (Shiv) rapid healed after getting blasted in the face by the Cosmic Staff.

    Suffice it to say that she's not non powered.


    It's good in the long run that Courtney got beaten down in this episode as she was having serious overconfidence there.

    Pat, Pat, Pat, yelling out Courtney's name like that?
    Superhero 101, Pat.

    She's been beaten in every single fight. This is the first one someone other than Pat has swooped in to save her.

    Yeah, I picked up on that. Shiv was getting up and leaving as Pat was yelling Courtney's name. She very well could have picked up on Star Girls identity.

    Pat's going to have some splainin' to do to his son and maybe his wife next episode if Courney's injuries are apparent.

    I know this is a superhero show but is it even possible that Courney didn't recognize Shiv as her fellow high school student or will a convenient case of amnesia kick in?

    Well, it's not like Shiv seriously did anything to hide her identity...

    Then again, it's not like Courtney seriously does anything to hide her identity.

    She wears a mask though those curls are very recognizable.

    And her face is very recognizable as well. That's really not much of a mask...more like make-up! ;)

    Maybe she can don a pair of glasses.
