Earlier this year it was revealed that several classic members of the Justice Society of America would appear on DC Universe’s Stargirl. One such character is the Golden Age hero Hourman, and now thanks to Stargirl.TV, we may have our first look at his costume.
Spotted on the set of Stargirl yesterday were a number of the stars suited up in their costumes. Among them were Brec Bassinger’s Stargirl, Yvette Monreal’s Wildcat, and Lou Ferrigno Jr.’s Hourman.
Created by writer Ken Fitch and artist Bernard Baily, Rex Tyler first appeared in Adventure Comics #48 in April of 1940. Hourman uses a miraculous drug called Miraclo which grants him superhuman strength and speed for an hour at a time. Using his abilities, Tyler went on to join many teams in the DC Universe including the All-Star Squadron, the Freedom Fighters, and the Justice Society of America.
Lou Ferrigno Jr. will be playing the original Hourman while his son Rick Tyler, the second Hourman, is portrayed by Cameron Gellman.
As you can see in the images above, Hourman’s costume appears very similar to his original comic book appearance. Featuring the cape and hood, it looks like DC has stayed faithful to the source material for inspiration when creating the costumes.
Hailing from Geoff Johns, Stargirl follows high school sophomore Courtney Whitmore as she inspires an unlikely group of young heroes to stop the villains of the past. This new drama will reimagine Stargirl and the very first superhero team, the Justice Society of America, in an unpredictable series.
