Maria Park Ernie's friend and sometimes
00:27
guest co-host for Blerd Without Fear
00:29
with the DC universes Stargirl series on
00:32
the horizon I thought it was the perfect
00:34
time to do a who is Stargirl video 
00:37
Stargirl also known as Courtney Elizabeth
00:39
Whitmore made her first appearance and
00:41
Stars and Stripes issue 0 in 1999 which
00:45
is considered the new earth era in
00:46
comics she was created by Geoff Johns
00:49
and Lee Motor Stargirl is the first DC
00:53
character created by John's and she was
00:55
inspired by his sister who had passed
00:57
away
00:58
Courtney reluctantly moved from Los
01:00
Angeles California to Blue Valley
01:02
Nebraska after her parents Royal Flush
01:05
gang members Samuel Curtis and Barbara
01:07
Whitmore divorced and her mother
01:09
remarried her stepfather Paul Dugan in
01:11
some versions Barbara was never married
01:14
a Curtis in fact she fled her home in
01:16
Gotham City when she became pregnant
01:17
with Courtney to escape his abuse after
01:21
relocating with her unborn baby to blue
01:23
valley she meets Dugan and may
01:25
eventually marry Paul Dugan used to be
01:28
known as stripesy and was the sidekick
01:30
of the original star-spangled kid also
01:32
known as savez to Pembleton who was
01:35
murdered by solomon grundy one day
01:38
Courtney finds the cosmic converter belt
01:40
adapted by Pembleton and which was based
01:42
on the cosmic rod technology first
01:44
designed by Ted Knight also known as the
01:46
original Starmen. Courtney begins using
01:49
the belt to become the second
01:51
star-spangled kid mostly to annoy Duden
01:54
for moving her and her mother to
01:55
Nebraska
01:56
in response Dugan developed a robotic
01:59
suit codenamed stripe to protect his
02:01
stepdaughter later Courtney would be
02:04
gifted with the cosmic staff from Jack
02:06
Knight Ted's youngest son and the new
02:08
and very much reluctant hero star man
02:11
with the staff she becomes a new
02:13
superhero Stargirl. Courtney is a very
02:17
talented kickboxer and an accomplished
02:19
gymnast when she uses her cosmic
02:21
converter belt she has the ability to
02:23
project shooting light attacks in the
02:25
form of stars at her foes she also has
02:28
increased speed stamina and strength
02:31
when she utilizes the cosmic staff she's
02:34
able to fly in absorb light energy which
02:36
he can later convert into force fields
02:38
the staff also uses the same energy it
02:41
absorbs to create very powerful energy
02:43
blasts it's revealed later in the comics
02:46
that the staff is attuned to her
02:48
allowing Courtney to send out mental
02:50
commands from any distance star girl was
02:54
