Stargirl leads superheroes

Written by Midweek. Posted in New Series

Courtney Whitmore (aka Stargirl) is smart, athletic and above all else, kind. Stargirl will start on MCity on DStv on 12 September. This high school teenager’s seemingly perfect life hits a major speed bump when her mother gets married and her new family moves from Los Angeles, California, to Blue Valley, Nebraska. Struggling to adapt to a new school, make new friends and deal with a new step-family, Courtney discovers her step-father has a secret; he used to be the sidekick to a superhero. ‘Borrowing’ the long-lost hero’s cosmic staff, Courtney becomes the unlikely inspiration for an entirely new generation of superheroes.
