Joel McHale's Starman trains Stargirl in first DC's Stargirl season 3 photos
Remember when Courtney a.k.a. Stargirl (Brec Bassinger) was worried that the newly resurrected Sylvester Pemberton a.k.a. Starman (Joel McHale) was going to take back his Cosmic Staff on DC's Stargirl? Turns out she had nothing to worry about — the veteran superhero really is here to level up her training instead after he saved her in the fight against Eclipso in the season 2 finale.
EW has the exclusive first photos from DC's Stargirl season 3 that shows Sylvester training Courtney in how to better use the Cosmic Staff. The photos (below) are from the first two episodes of the season, and it looks like Starman and Stargirl are going to become quite the dynamic duo and fast — Courtney's big smile while standing next to Sylvester is almost brighter than the staff.
Elsewhere in the photos, Sylvester spends some quality time with his former sidekick Pat (Luke Wilson), and both of them look pretty intense. This clearly isn't your typical hero/sidekick reunion. Plus, the new JSA finds something that scares them all — could it be their next villain? — and Barbara (Amy Smart) leans into the season's tagline "Frenemies" by baking with her new next door neighbor and reformed villain Paula/Tigress (Joy Osmanski).
Check out the exclusive photos below now:
DC's Stargirl season 3 premieres August 31 on The CW.
