Courtney Whitmore is Stargirl, a young superheroine who has been a member of the Justice League of America and Justice League United.

Origin

Born and raised in Los Angeles, Courtney was raised by her single mother, Barbara. Courtney did not like her mother's new boyfriend, Pat Dugan, and especially in the beginning, did not get along with him. Her superhero career began after her mother ordered her to clean up Pat's office (previously, her bedroom) and she found a case with some old possessions: a staff, a belt and a shirt with a star on it. She decided to try it on, and after spotting a fire during a test flight, decided to be a superhero. She quickly caught the perpetrator, and her hero debut became a viral sensation.[1]

As she contemplated what to do next, she confided with her friend Tuan, who helped her shop for a better costume. However, the world knew about her, and so did Pat. He warned her against becoming a superhero, and revealed a few things about the equipment's previous wielder, who had died. After he told Barbara about it, they agreed that if Courtney wanted to be a hero, Pat would train her. The family supported her, until she answered a call made by Shadow Thief. The villain had taken hostages, and the only demand was seeing a superhero. Against the judgment of Pat and Barbara, she went into what was quite obviously a trap.[2]

She managed to rout Shadow Thief, and was lauded for saving lives,[3] but when she returned home, she found Shadow Thief had beaten her to it. The house was ransacked, Barbara and Ted were wounded, and her little stepbrother was killed. Though she didn't like him - as much as anyone would hate little brothers - but she still felt she had failed him, and used the trauma to become a better hero.[4]
