The CW’s Injustice Society star Girl Season 1 had a formidable bunch. From Icicle to Dragon King, they were a stacked group. But, undoubtedly, Brainwave was one of its most important members. He was the original villain opposing Kourtney. And he knew how to mentally manipulate the Justice Society of America, making it a force to be reckoned with. At the end of star Girl Season 1, however, Brainwave’s powers could not help him survive the battle against the JSA.
What Was The Fate Of Brainwave In ‘Stargirl’ Season 1?
Henry King Sr., aka Brainwave, was a supervillain who possessed telepathic powers associated with the Injustice Society. Brainwave can read and manipulate the mind of another, and can cause serious neurological damage to its victims. He was able to disable others without moving a finger.
Due to his lack of power and empathy, it was difficult for Brainwave to defeat JSA. But after killing his son, Henry Jr., all bets are off. The JSA, and Yolanda in particular, wanted to remove Brainwave forever.
In star Girl In the Season 1 finale, Brainwave tries to trick Yolanda into thinking she is Henry, Jr., leading her to believe that her son has somehow survived. However, Yolanda saw through him. He slit her throat with her wildcat claws and saw her bleeding.
Brainwave returns in ‘Stargirl’ season 2
in recent episodes star Girl Season 2, Yolanda is overwhelmed by the guilt of killing someone. Eventually, his guilt became overwhelming, and he began hallucinating both Brainwave and Henry, Jr. star Girl season 2 episode 7.
During one of Yolanda’s hallucinations, Brainwave claimed to have transferred a part of himself to her brain after he killed her. He said that she is now a part of him, and once his guilt reaches its peak, he will take over her body. Later, Yolanda’s trauma forces her to leave the JSA.
So, is brainwave really still alive? Or is it Eclipse playing with Yolanda’s mind? star Girl Leading us to believe that Yolanda’s pain was thanks to Eclipse, but with Brainwave still alive, this would be a great turning point. And we all know how much this show loves to torture kids, so it would make sense if Brainwave was alive and well in Yolanda’s mind. Season 2 seems to be all about mind manipulation, so who better to inflict some damage on JSA than Brainwave?
Is Yolanda really done with JSA?
Yvette Monreal, actor who plays Yolanda star Girl, recently talked comicbook.com About her character’s decision to leave JSA. Monreal said, “I think right now, she just wants to focus on herself, she wants to focus on the lights. She wants, I guess, I honestly think for a moment, she just turns her head.” Wants to turn around a bit and just focus on improving herself. She knows everything is out there.”
Monreal continued, “She knows they’re doing it all, but in her mind, she must be the one to execute because I can’t do it anymore. Her mental health has gotten so bad that it’s something that needs to be done.” She can’t worry about that right now.”
Even though Yolanda left the JSA and is done with being a wildcat, it’s hard to believe that her headaches and hallucinations will stop. The guilt is still there, poisoning his mental state. Hopefully, in future episodes, we’ll see him get real help. or perhaps, star Girl Fans will see Brainwave take complete control of Yolanda.
