    We're liking them, and I'm thrilled it got my daughter into reading the John's JSA run. It took a little getting used to the hybrid Infinity Inc teen heroes idea.

I'm glad you're sharing it with the kids. My kids aren't into it but we're watching another 80s artifact called Captain N. I just wish shows for kids were written with the base level of reality of adult shows and just focused on things kids like. But the reality always seems much more cartoony.

    The one complaint is the overly decompressed storytelling. It moves really slow, and that's saying a lot compared to the source material.

It depends. If it was a show about the JSA getting together it might be a little slow. If it's a show about Stargirl then they're jamming her show full of JSA at a pretty fast rate. Most of their motivations for becoming heroes are rushed to be sure.

She always like Stargirl from her appearances in JLU.

I do like the fact it hasn't fallen into the usual teen, high school show trap of putting the super heroics as a lower priority to dating, school work, etc in the story lines.

I guess they are packing a lot in, but the plot developments feel kind of slow. Of course that could be because we record it and watch it the same night we watch the giant pile of high speed insanity that is the last season of SHIELD.

I'm still hoping they pull some comic book "not dead" reasons for more of the original JSA and have them appear. They're some of my favorite characters and some of the best parts of the comic run was how there were groups of older heroes mentoring the young ones.
