In Stargirl, unlike the comics, Sylvester Pemberton is Starman, where he’s known under at least two identities: Skyman and Star-Spangled Kid. In those comics, Courtney Whitmore, before becoming Stargirl, became Star-Spangled Kid as a tribute to Pemberton.

Variety describes Pemberton as the ‘Golden Age Starman’. In Stargirl, Starman is a member of the Justice Society of America and “wields a mysterious anti-gravity weapon called the cosmic staff.” His longtime partner is Stripesy, Courtney Whitmore’s stepfather, Pat Dugan.

Stargirl is set to debut on streaming service DC Universe late 2019.
