A new villainess enters the stage in episode 7 of Stargirl….Shiv!
And she proves to be a worthy opponent….at least.

And here is the video:

That was a good episode! Basically the origin episode for Shiv. Or one of them since the next episode is called “Shiv: Part Two”.
I think it’s a little weird that Courtney chooses to get friends with Cindy, who is the meanest girl in school. OK, she doesn’t have much friends so far, and perhaps she wants to see the good in her, but it seems a little off.
A shame that Shiv doesn’t have a mask for her costume, but seemingly the villains aren’t really much into protecting their “civilian” identities so much with some exceptions (Sportsmaster, Tigress(?- face paint).
The fight between these two is really well done! Great action 🙂
I am wondering: Does Stargirl know what damage the staff can do to others? She send Brainwave into a coma and now completely burned Shiv’s face what might have killed her if she wouldn’t have super powers. Was it Stargirl’s intention to kill her? Hard to say….I guess not.
Stargirl was lucky as she was rescued by the….janitor! Will be interesting to see, as I don’t know the Stargirl comics, who he actually is or was. Is he a survivor of the old JSA team?
Also Stargirl was lucky (again) that Shiv decided to leave rather then to stay and to finish her…and/or unmask her! Seemingly she was hurt and/or afraid that the sword wielding Janitor might return. 😉
Pat should be more careful with shouting her real name, even he couldn’t know the whole time that she was in costume.
Here is the trailer for episode 8:
Well, it seems that Stargirl’s secret identity is in big danger….at least. Clearly seems that Shiv figures out who she is.
With that all their secret identities are in big danger. I am afraid that soon all villains will knows who is behind their masks 🙁
And even worse, I think they wont even need to really unmask them…in the only “right” way 😉
Really curious to see how the story goes on! And of course I hope to see Wildcat in action as well…
If her secret gets exposed, she should deal with all the villains who know…so that her secret is safe again.
