Stargirl Season 2 Poster Puts Heroes In Eclipso's Diamond

The CW has revealed a new poster for Stargirl season 2 showing the titular heroine and her Justice Society of America in Eclipso's diamond. The series hails from creator Geoff Johns and is based on the DC Comics character of the same name from Johns and Lee Moder. The story centers on high school student Courtney Whitmore as she discovers the Cosmic Staff of Starman a decade after he and almost all of the original JSA were killed by the Injustice Society of America. Stargirl must put together a new team of heroes with the help of her stepfather/former Starman sidekick Pat Dugan.

Stargirl got its start at DC Universe, though season 1 also aired on The CW. It's received very positive reviews and was renewed for season 2 as a CW-only series after DC Universe was restructured to be just a digital comics service. The CW renewal, which came a little over halfway through season 1 airing on the network, didn't stop at one, as Stargirl was picked up for season 3 three months ahead of its upcoming return. With just under a month to go until season 2 premieres, The CW is building anticipation for the next chapter in the series.

Though some may still be reeling from the jaw-dropping Stargirl season 1 finale revealing someone claiming to be Starman is still alive, the impending arrival of Eclipso has been on the mind of many since Meg DeLacy's Cindy discovered his gem in William Zarick's storage unit. The Bob Haney and Lee Elias-created villain has been seen in the animated world a few times with both the Justice League series and Superman/Batman: Public Enemies, but he has yet to appear in live-action. Given the villain's range of powers, including spirit possession, energy blasts, superhuman strength, invulnerability, and flight, he could prove to be one of the most challenging foes the young JSA will face in their careers as superheroes.

Eclipso won't be the only villain Stargirl and her team will have to deal with in season 2, however, as The Shade arrives to take down the JSA after he and the ISA did so a decade prior. But with Alan Scott's daughter Jade also coming on the Stargirl scene to carry on her father's mantle of Green Lantern, Whitmore and her group will put up a strong fight to keep the world safe. Stargirl season 2 is set to premiere on The CW on August 10.
