This is a site for discussing roleplaying games. Have fun doing so, but there is one major rule: do not discuss political issues that aren't directly and uniquely related to the subject of the thread and about gaming. While this site is dedicated to free speech, the following will not be tolerated: devolving a thread into unrelated political discussion, sockpuppeting (using multiple and/or bogus accounts), disrupting topics without contributing to them, and posting images that could get someone fired in the workplace (an external link is OK, but clearly mark it as Not Safe For Work, or NSFW). If you receive a warning, please take it seriously and either move on to another topic or steer the discussion back to its original RPG-related theme.

Finally saw Stargirl E01-E06 I honestly don't see the Mary Sue some critics say she is, neither do I see any signs of the woke. Not gonna spoil it but if you have seen it we could talk about if they're doing teens right. If not maybe go give it a shot?

Trailer looks fun. When I was collecting DC comics the few appearances of Stargirl and her father tended to be a bit tongue-in-cheek lighter fun and this seems to be going for that vibe?

Yes, tongue in cheek and Stargilr is growing as a character, my only real issue is with the New Dr Midnight, too much of a stereotype, nerdy, outcast, speaks to herself, has no friends, useless in a fight, only the magic googles of Dr Midnight make her somewhat of any use.

(Not really magical but hell if it's not pushing the line)

The original was blind and needed the goggles to see normally as he was otherwise blind in normal light. Aside from that he was very much the street level vigilante type relying on taking advantage of his ability to see in darkness. The one Im more familliar with though was Beth Chapel, a black doctor who was blinded and given Doctor Midnights fomula as a cure and fighting crime with If I recall right. Hourman. She apparently got killed along with some other characters in a stupid Eclipso story. But as of last check seems to have been revived into the Watchmen universe?

Im guessing the character in Stargirl is not blind?

SPOILERS AHEAD

No, not blind, and the googles have an [SPOILER] AI modeled after the late Dr Midnight that puts the AI in Iron Man's suit to shame. Just for starters it has free will or seems to, and a sense of humor. [/SPOILER]

Episodes 07-11

The series is getting better, no Mary Sue/Marty Stu in sight, Doctor Midnite is still a joke, the bad guys still seem to be wining and there's a clock ticking cliffhanger of the villains plan about to be successful.

Brainwave is a scary evil motherfucker, I won't say more to avoid spoilers, but I currently give it 8/10. Let's hope the second season (made by the CW) doesn't suck like all the CW superhero shows do.

Episode 12 good episode, even the annoying brat seems a bit less annoying.

One complaint tho: The X-Men called, they want Cerebro back

I had the exact same thoughts on Cerebro, both in looks and use.

Episode 13 Oh lawdy!

You will not believe what was the nefarious plan of the ISA (Injustice Society of America)

SPOILERS AHEAD!

[SPOILER]

I warned you:

Turns out the ISA wanted to mind program everyone to make them embrace green energy, stop sexism/racism/etc

So the ISA are JSWs!

I'm expecting the salt to flow!

[/SPOILER]

I've been recording episodes, but I am struggling to make it through them. The show is so very CW.

It gets better from episode6-7 on and the last 4 are way better.
Also no, the CW wishes they could do something like this.
