Episode 12 – Stars and S.T.R.I.P.E Part One
The Injustice Society is about to hatch a worldwide diabolical plan and a timer signals the countdown.
They dispatch a couple members to kill Pat/Stripesy, Courtney/Stargirl and everybody associated with them, including the other Justice Society members, Mike and Barbara. The first attack on Barbara and Courtney is warded off, as well as a secondary attack on Pat and Mike at his shop.
Mike learns about S.T.R.I.P.E and thinks it is “badass.”
Justin the Janitor drives up with KFC and encourages them to join him for a “feast.” The team Justice Society assembles at Justin’s place to formulate a plan of attack and/or defensive posture. Rick/Hourman must solve the riddle in his dad’s journal.
They learn that the Injustice Society has been building an amplifier and plan to go underground and destroy the device.
Will they be too late to stop the killing of innocent people with brains that can’t accept the input from Brainwave?
A couple good fighting scenes, the team pulling together, an insane plan hatching to control the human population and a timer countdown. Yes, this episode, the first of the final two-parts of the season delivers most of the goods. I would have liked to see the team suiting up sooner in the episode. I mean, they know they’re fighting evil, why are they still in their plain clothes? Suit up! Otherwise, a very good episode and sets up the season 1 finale.
Overall episode rating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
