I think Jade is an okay character, but she's kind of weird. The whole backstory with having a villain for a mom kind of confuses me. I guess what makes it confusing is that Alan Scott is/was involved with some OTHER woman who was a villain, and it can be kind of hard to keep all of that straight. And the mixture of plant based abilities and Green Lantern powers is a bit strange. Furthermore, I'm not sure how I feel about her not needing a power ring to do Green Lantern things...or at least not needing one some of the time. It seems like that would put her on a level above the GL's, and I'm not sure if that is a great idea narratively for this particular character.

I don't dislike her character or think she is bad, but she is a weird and somewhat confusing mishmash of elements. For whatever it's worth, as far as female GL's go, I do prefer her over Jessica Cruz and whoever the hell else came after Jessica. I honestly have difficulty keeping up with them all at this point.

Alan Scott couldn't keep it straight either, apparently.

48 hours away from seeing Jade in live-action. I'm bursting with anticipation.

Edit: I just read some rumored spoilers for the show, and it seems that she might not be in the premiere. Bummer.

Guess I need more context to figure out why it isn't insane for Stargirl to decide to blast the hell out of her house.

The same reason that Courtney overreacted to Artemis giving the hockey stick back to her friend and flipped Artemis on to the ground. Courtney was impulsive through the entire episode, even when her friends and family were asking her to keep life in perspective. She isn't thinking about the consequences in many areas of her life right now.

I don't watch the show. So the answer is that it seems insane because she basically IS somewhat nuts?

Not "nuts", immature. She spent the premiere thinking only about her life as Stargirl and letting everything else slip. Her family and teammates thought that she was obsessive and overreacting, which she did in this clip. However, the primary motivator for this is that she's convinced that old JSA villains will return for the new version of the JSA, and viewers learn that she's actually correct as the episode closed.

I guess. I mean immature to an extent that you impulsively do THAT much damage...that seems a little nuts to me.

Star girl is a superhero show made for teenage girls. Basically the Taylor Swift of superhero shows. I tried a few episodes but it clearly wasnt made for me.

That's too bad because this season has seen more and more involvement from the original JSA members.
