Who also have cold powers? Or at least Grandma does? And now Cameron appears to be developing them, as well. So…it’s genetic? Are they maybe descended from frost giants or something?
I thought the JSA, Jr. squad got freaked out a little too easily. I mean, they seemed to be freaked out by the art room, which was covered in paint splatters, not blood. As a fanwank, I suppose that might have been down to Eclipso’s influence, as well, and it was directly instilling fear in them. But it kind of seemed like they were reacting with horror to seeing abstract expressionist art.
And, by the way, Mr. Deisinger was apparently just a really, deeply nice guy. His “darkness” was just…painting. I mean, painting the Black Diamond over and over again, but…that was it.
On a completely different track, I’m impressed with how cleverly the show handled COVID filming restrictions. Setting this season during “summer school” lets them use the school sets with only a handful of actors in each scene, and they’ve very carefully scripted and blocked the other scenes so that it makes sense to only have a couple of characters present at a time. It’s organic enough that it took several episodes for me to realize that most of the scenes only have a couple of characters, and none of them have more than a half dozen or so.
Also, high school series pretty much universally do one season per school year, which gives them at most four seasons, but often only three as they often start with the characters being sophomores. If they keep up with one season per summer school session, that potentially gives them two or three more seasons in high school. Although, honestly, junior supers shows all pretty universally have two or three good seasons before the premise gets stretched too thin, and they should move, but don’t. If Stargirl goes on for more than three seasons, and I hope it does, I also hope they just go ahead and let them become the full-fledged new JSA.
