For those unaware, Stargirl was the second Star-Spangled Kid who took the shorter name when she was given the cosmic staff by Jack Knight. Geoff Johns created this character based on his sister of the same name and given a comparable personality. Johns’ sister passed away in the explosion of TWA Flight 800 in 1996. Star Girl’s first appearance can be found in Stars and S.T.R.I.P.E. #0 published in July 1999. Stargirl also boasts enhanced agility and strength thanks to her cosmic converter belt.
