While the debut of DC Universe’s Stargirl has been pushed back a week to May 18, fans are not starved for new content. Thanks to Team LJ Supersuits, fans now have their first look at Henry Thomas in costume as Doctor Mid-Nite.
Created by Charles Reizenstein and Stanley Josephs Aschmeier in 1941, Charles McNider first appeared in All-American Comics #25. The character was a Golden Age hero and a founding member of the Justice Society of America. Given the character’s blindness, he is one of the first superheroes in comics to exhibit a physical impairment.
Team LJ Supersuits, the group that designed the series’ costumes, posted a behind the scenes image from the set of the pilot revealing the first look at Thomas in costume.

Some behind the scenes looks on the set of Stargirl. LJ and ACD Sarah will always visit the set for the start of filming to “establish” characters, like Doctor Midnite Golden Era seen here. Meaning that she ensures that each character is dressed and styled to her exact vision, and that is what will remain the standard for the rest of the season! #dc #dcuniverse #dcustargirl #stargirl #cdg #cdglocal892 #cwstargirl
It looks like Stargirl‘s’ Doctor Mid-Nite has been lifted right from the pages of the comics. The suit looks exactly like it does in the books and is an excellent translation to live-action.
