Obviously, Stargirl was first character I created for DC. Most important, Courtney Whitmore was inspired by my sister who passed away. To have an opportunity to tell a story celebrating this superhero was literally the first thing I wanted to do because it is so personal to me. Also, a character that speaks to being young, to a legacy and to pushing forward seems so important to me nowadays.” The series will also feature the rest of her teammates at the Justice Society of America as they fight villains from both the past and present.
