We're less than a month away from the Season 2 premiere of DC's Stargirl, and fans are eager to see exactly what the series brings in its sophomore debut. The Season 2 trailer has teased the arrival of a number of new DC Comics heroes, including Jennifer-Lynn Hayden/Jade (Ysa Penarejo), the daughter of original Green Lantern Alan Scott. The idea of Jade joining the fold of the series has definitely enticed fans, especially those who have been wondering if her comic-accurate brother, Todd James Rice/Obsidian, could also appear. A new report from TVLine addresses that possibility, saying that the whereabouts of Jade's brother are brought up in the early episodes of Season 2.
This echoes comments previously made by showrunner Geoff Johns, who teased that Obsidian "surely can't be far behind."
"Season two gives us a chance to deal with the other two artifacts that Courtney stole: Alan Scott's lantern and Johnny Thunder's pink pen," Johns told SFX Magazine earlier this year. "Those two elements play into the story pretty early on. And where Jade is, her brother Obsidian surely can't be far behind... We haven't seen a character wield the power of Green Lantern for a long, long time on TV. And the Thunderbolt has never been on the screen before in live-action. That was also a great challenge."
In addition to Jade (and possibly Obsidian) Season 2 of Stargirl will introduce a number of new heroes and villains to the fold of the show, including Jakeem Thunder (Alkoya Brunson), Yz the Thunderbolt (Jim Gaffigan), The Shade (Jonathan Cake), and Eclipso (Nick Tarabay).
