The post-credits scene from the Stargirl Season 2 finale features the Arrowverse’s live-action debut of a major DC character.
The CW’s Season 2 finale Star girl brought a major DC character to the Arrowverse.
The post-credits scene features the first full look at Robert Todd, aka Mister Bones. His name was dropped in a previous episode when Courtney and Pat were looking for Jenni / Jade’s brother Todd (aka Obsidian), who landed them at a troubled youth center. Bones did not appear, but was contacted by phone by one of the nurses at the facility.
Mister Bones was created by Roy Thomas, Dann Thomas and Todd McFarlane, making his debut in the years 1985 Infinite, Inc. # 16. The character was originally a second-level supervillain who operated as part of Helix, but his popularity led to DC turning him into a full member of Infinity, Inc. He later served in the DEO (as seen on Super girl), and after reaching the position of Regional Director for the East Coast, he was renamed Director Bones.
Star girl was serially commissioned in 2018 and premiered on DC Universe in May 2020. The show centers on teenage Courtney Whitmore, who becomes Stargirl after finding out about Starman’s former cosmic staff. With eventual help from her stepfather Pat Dugan, she formed a new Justice Society of America, consisting of herself, STRIPE, Wildcat, Hourman, and Doctor Mid-Nite. Together they take on the Injustice Society of America, whose ranks include Icicle, Brainwave, Solomon Grundy, Wizard, Sportsmaster, Tigress and Gambler. Season 2, which moved from the now-defunct DC Universe to The CW, also brought characters such as The Shade, Eclipso, Thunderbolt, Jakeem Thunder, Jade, and Golden Age Flash into the fold.
In May, The CW renewed Star girl for Season 3. “We are more than proud to continue to share the stories of Nicky Shen and Courtney Whitmore, two strong and powerful young women at the center of this new generation of hit shows for The CW in Kung Fu and DC Stargirl“said Mark Pedowitz, President and CEO of The CW Network.” While each has remarkable talent on both sides of the camera, Kung Fu and DC Stargirl not only provided fans with visually stunning action and high-flying heroic deeds, but they also both hit some very powerful emotional chords as they delve into the family dynamics and personal relationships at the grassroots, and we are happy to see what happens next. “
