It seems that yet another hero has joined the ranks of DC Universe’s Stargirl. According to insider Lance Ausfresser in the Stargirl Facebook group, Jake Austin Walker will be playing Brainwave Jr. in the upcoming series.
A few months ago it was announced that Walker had been cast in an unknown role. At the time, many assumed that he would be playing the fan-favorite character Wally West. This seemed to be a safe assumption given the actor bears a striking resemblance to the character. That doesn’t appear to be the case, however, as Ausfresser reports that Walker will bring a different hero to life.
Brainwave Jr., aka Henry King Jr., is the second individual to use the name Brainwave, with his father, Henry King Sr., being the first. The character boasts a number of psionic abilities including telepathy, telekinesis, hologram creation, and psi-blasts.
As of now, it is unknown how large of a role the character will play in the show but as more information becomes available you can be sure we at Full Circle will keep you updated.
