'Stargirl' Season 1 Episode 5 introduces angry Rick Tyler, fans say Hourman is 'going to be a loose cannon'
Courtney Whitmore tries to recruit Rick Tyler for Justice Society Of America in the latest episode
Courtney Whitmore (Brec Bassinger) rounded up Yolanda Montez aka Wildcat (Yvette Monreal) for the Justice Society Of America in the previous episode. Somehow, Beth Chapel has managed to find her way into the society too, because she stumbled upon the AI goggles in Courtney's room, and well, thanks to Courtney's super sense of subtlety, she heard the two talking to each other outside the hospital building. 'Stargirl' is rushing through the villains, their offsprings and the heroes, and is wasting no time. We got to have two origin stories in the latest episode, 'Hourman and Dr Mid-Nite'.
In the latest episode of 'Stargirl', we were introduced to an angry, bitter Rick Tyler (Cameron Gellman), the son of Hourman. All his life Rick was under the impression that his parents had been killed in a car accident. However, Beth Chapel (Anjelika Washington) reveals to him that his parents were murdered by Solomon Grundy. Furious, Rick vows revenge and that's his prime motivation of joining Courtney's Justice Society Of America and becoming the new Hourman.
Fans have taken well to Gellman's character and are full of appreciation for him. Most of them are waiting for a showdown between him and Solomon Grundy. "If we get a Solomon Grundy and Hourman face off I'll honestly lose my mind!!!" a fan tweeted. The teenagers are still growing up and need to learn a lot about being superheroes. "And ya'll see the confused looks on the rest of the team's faces when Rick said he wanted revenge? They are still young, they call themselves the Justice Society but they don't understand what Justice is yet. That's part of growing up," another fan wrote. "Hourman is going to be loose cannon guy, every team needs their Raphael #Stargirl," a fan wrote. "Cameron is just impressing me all episode long! He really helps bring home an already emotional story for Rick. His need for revenge just gives me dark side vibes all day and I'm here all day to see Rick's growth as a hero. #Hourman #DCStargirl #Stargirl," another fan wrote. "Courtney gave the hourglass to a guy on the edge," a fan wrote.
'Stargirl' airs on The CW on Tuesdays at 8pm.
