That's a lot of convoluted backstory to include without much pay off to Courtney's story though, so the shorthand is to just make it Sly as Starman after being the Kid and let comics fans fill in the other backstory for themselves while the general audience doesn't need it to enjoy the show itself. Sly embodies the entirety of that story for comic fans but also presents a more accessible entry for non-fans.

    I'm not normally fond of fake adult actors subbing for actual teens, but Brec Bassinger nails Courtney.

    Really liked it. More fun than I thought it would be. Thought the stunt work and FX was pretty good. Hope they didn't blow the budget on the premier.
    There came a time when the Old Gods died! The Brave died with the Cunning! The Noble perished locked in battle with unleashed Evil! It was the last day for them! An ancient era was passing in fiery holocaust!

    Based of the people there I assume the Wizard can make black hands of energy. Really don't think it could have been anyone else.

    When I saw the black hand, I was expecting Shade, but he didn't show up.

    Did Wildcat die? Or was he knocked unconscious when he flew out the window?

    Oh wow. That was completely lost on me. So Dr. Mid-Nite 2 isn't even a doctor? I guess I didn't realize that all of these characters would be teenagers!

    I was thinking the Shade -- though I don't recall if he was capable of creating shapes from shadows.
