    I personally don't think that the wizard kid is dead. There are clues in the show that lead me to believe that he did some magic trick and lived before the car hit him.

    Remember when Icicle spoke to the magician and told him he wasn't powerful enough for the wand and then the magician's kid on the bus stated that he felt his magic getting stronger? Pretty sure Stargirl is leading up to all the ISA parents either dying, coma, or going to jail. After that happens all of the kids will be left to fight amongst each other. And I think that the magician's son will try to kill Icicles to avenge his father's death.

    As much as I love the Arrowverse, I feel a lot of the episodes for those shows could be cut down drastically. I feel less that way about shows Berlanti does for other networks, however, like Sabrina and (so far) Stargirl.
    His current approval rating is 34%, meaning 34% of Americans are still morons.

    if you go back and check the old JSA comics, yeah they seem a little silly

    Alan Scott couldn't penetrate wood, Dr Mid-Nite was like Velma if he lost his glasses, and Wildcat was just a really good fighter in a cat suit

    it is inherently silly

    Hell, the Atom was just a short guy who decided to fight crime.

    What’s the consensus from JSA fans of Al Pratt not existing in the show?

    That's half the fun. They're just a rag tag team, like the original JSA.

    She's pretty much the most psychopathic of the group. There is some conflict, but none of it is of a moral nature.

    I can understand why he'd be left out. He's either duplicating Wildcat's skill set as his origin had him trained by the same guy as Ted Grant or if you go with the later "atomic strength" version he's Hourman without the time limit. Then factor in the need to cast a short actor so the Atom name makes sense.

    But personally I'd take Al Pratt and Nuklon/Atom-smasher over both Hourmen and if not for Yolanda I'd welcome losing Wildcat (Ted) in exchange for Al being the JSA's expert hand-to-hand guy.

    I was kind of expecting Atom-Smasher to be part of the teenage JSA and avoid the skeeviness of his comic relationship with Courtney.

    If the show lasts, they’ll probably wait until Courtney is a senior before bringing Atom-Smasher in, so they can justify her fraternizing with an older male.

    The thing is Al only trained in boxing and for strength training. Ted also mastered Krav Maga, Hapkido, and calier.... (I cant remember how thenother one is spelled, its the martial art of the dance and where all his flip and hand stand moves come from)

    Added to which it was a thing with Ted in solos stories (like JSA Classified and in mini series) that he could watch a fight style and adapt it to his own. In one story some organisation was draining skills from old fighters and putting it it into young kids. They did it to Ted and he was able to take them down by changing it up and using Joe Lewis'Style, and Ali's and others.

    Thats a lot more skill then All Pratt ever showed.

    What?!? A 18 year old with a 21 year old?

    It’s definitely not uncommon.

    If Al Pratt/Atom had been included in this show, how do you imagine they might have retconned in a "talisman" or object of power that Courtney could bestow upon a new Atom the way Wildcat's costume, Hourman's hourglass and Dr Mid-Nite's goggles were key to their powers?

    BTW, when McNider was Dr Mid-Nite, what was the AI in the goggles when he wore them??? I don't imagine it was himself.
