This 7 days on DC’s Stargirl, Mike thought he experienced the publish things to sign up for the JSA, just as the crew confronted Richard Swift about his shady agenda.
This week’s chilly open up flashed again to Xmas Working day 2010, wherever equally Pat/Stripesy and Johnny Thunder (performed by Ethan Embry) — beholder of Thunderbolt, which is a lot more highly effective than Inexperienced Lantern, Flash, all of ’em put together — experienced been benched though the relaxation of the JSA took on the ISA. But ahead of the sidekicks could kick again with some eggnog, Ted Grant/Wildcat arrived to recruit Johnny, but not Pat, for the Large Demonstrate.
Back again in the existing….
Mike is slogging by one more operate of his paper route, wherever he evidently will get bullied on the everyday by a pack of punks with bully-form nicknames. On returning dwelling, Mike will get a mobile phone get in touch with about a new subscriber, and when in want of a pen, he unwittingly grabs Thunderbolt from Courtney’s pencil cup. Afterward, though lamenting equally his exclusion from the JSA entertaining and his bullied paperboy destiny, Mike mutters, I would like I could be a superhero — and we see the pink pen twinkle in his pocket.
The subsequent working day throughout his paper route, Mike is offered with trace right after trace to say the terms So Neat — and the moment he eventually does, Thunderbolt (voiced by Jim Gaffigan) emerges from the pen and introduces himself as Mike’s new finest pal. Thunderbolt describes his ties to Johnny Thunder and the OG JSA, and his capacity to grant (just about!) any would like. But as with lots of a Monkey’s Paw-form system, lazily phrased needs can backfire, as Mike speedily and continuously learns. Afterwards, Mike sees his bullies thieving cookies from a area Lady Scout, so he needs that they would prevent — and Thunderbolt rains down Quit signal right after Quit signal in the lads’ route, until finally they scamper absent in terror. On their way dwelling from summertime university, Courtney and Yolanda materialize on Mike and find out his recently found electric power.
In the meantime, Barbara is having stock of the late William Zarick/The Wizard’s possessions when Richard Swift actually emerges from the shadows, declaring that some assistant directed him to the area, and he figured he could enable. Swift before long locks eyes on the box that held the Black Diamond, and when he uncover it vacant, he asks if he can have the box. Barbara declines, and Swift turns into evidently agitated ahead of enshrouding the closet in full darkness and disappearing.
Around at the Pit Quit, Pat and the JSA understand about Mike now getting in manage of Thunderbolt, while Pat forbids his son from producing more needs. When Pat asks Mike to summon Thunderbolt, the genie shares with Pat in non-public that, as with Johnny Thunder and now Mike, he usually is drawn to people today who are sensation extremely, extremely lonely — a point that Pat is saddened to listen to. With Courtney champing at the little bit to prevent The Shade in his tracks, it is agreed that Mike will use Thunderbolt to uncover the ISA alum’s recent locale, right after they commit a wonderful offer of time/a audio montage hammering out the extended and extremely particular would like. But absolutely sure ample, the initiatives pays off, and Thunderbolt factors them to Zarick’s vacant dwelling.
Pat forbids Mike/Thunderbolt from coming together, and alternatively duties his son with viewing more than the Pit Quit. At the Zarick dwelling, the JSA and Pat uncover Richard Swift/The Shade simply just sitting down at a eating desk, sipping beautifully steeped tea. He invitations them to partake, but Pat and Courtroom are intent on obtaining out what his agenda for Blue Valley is. Swift states it would possibly be finest if they did not know what he is up to, but alternatively simply just remain out of my way. A detente looks about to be arrived at when an impulsive Mike comes to sic Thunderbolt on The Shade, but the supervillain’s shadowy tendrils simply neutralize the genie as perfectly as pin down absolutely everyone in the JSA. Right after once again warning the children to remain out his way, The Shade vanishes from the dwelling — but at episode’s finish he is viewed standing atop the clock tower, keeping the Black Diamond’s vacant box and noticing(/stressing?) that Eclipso is heading to get rid of all those small children.
