I guess it really isn't surprising that Geoff Johns decided to include his creation, Stargirl, in the line up for the new Justice League of America. Her solo title was the first place that I took notice of Johns' writing skills. I have to wonder though, what separating her from Earth-2 will do to her back story. Does she still have ties to The Star-Spangled Kid and Stripesy? Do they even still exist in the New 52? Her connection to those heroes as well as others like Jack Knight was one of the things I really enjoyed about the character, and I hope that it is somehow maintained. I am sure that Johns will flesh out her history in the pages of JLA sooner or later, so we will find out what has and has not changed soon enough.
