Eclipso planned on corrupting Stargirl and using their combined powers to drag Earth into the Shadowlands, a nightmare realm. Luckily, the heroes and the villains teamed up together to free a possessed Stargirl from Eclipso’s grips.
Starman resurrected surprising and led the team to reclaim Stargirl’s Cosmic Staff before Eclipso could get his hands on it. Towards the end, Stargirl realizes that people have both good and evil inside them when the JSA teamed up with the ISA to defeat Eclipso and free her in Supergirl Season 2.
