They will appear in the two-hour TV movie airing next year as part of Justice Society of America's mission to mentor Clark.
"Smallville" shares a good first look at two members of Justice Society of America (JSA) who will appear in the two-hour event next year. Brent Stait and Britt Irvin dressed up in costume to portray Doctor Fate and Stargirl respectively in episode "Absolute Justice", airing February 5.
Doctor Fate, in the comic version, possesses mystical powers which can be associated to sorcery. With the Helmet of Nabu, he is resistant to injury and has super power strength. Meanwhile, Stargirl is a trained gymnastic and thus she has the agility needed to fight. She also has a Cosmic Converter Belt which can shoot stars.
Along with the still of Fate and Stargirl, The CW also releases the one that shows a confrontation between Hawkman and Green Arrow. "They have completely different views on just about everything you can imagine. Hawkman has this sort of antiquated, conservative point of view, while Oliver is the 'liberal bleeding heart'. Together, they are a match made in hell," Justin Hartley who plays Green Arrow said.
Other members of JSA will be presented as "glimpses", Executive Producer Brian Petersen confirmed. "We wanted to make their entrance into the series relevant, so they show up in a time when our fledgling League, that has not named itself or coalesced into anything, is having a few growing pains," the showrunner said. "So they are coming in to teach all of our heroes a lesson about family and leadership from the mistakes of their own past."
