In comics, Cindy Burman first appeared as Shiv in Stars and S.T.R.I.P.E. #7, although Cindy first appeared in #1 as the top cheerleader of Blue Valley Excessive Faculty, a well-liked imply lady who had it out for Courtney from second one. In comics, as on Stargirl, Cindy is the daughter of Dragon King and has been educated since start — in addition to experimented on — so as to observe in his footsteps as a villain. Nevertheless, as we noticed in “Shiv Half One”, Cindy isn’t prepared to attend for her time to shine. Regardless of her father telling her that she has to remain out of issues and proceed her position as a traditional highschool scholar, Cindy needs a seat on the Injustice Society desk one thing that led her to go well with up and tackle Stargirl herself in opposition to his needs. It is unclear precisely how Cindy’s disobedience will play out, however Nelson Lee — who performs Dragon King on the collection — teased a few of the battle between the daddy and daughter in a earlier interview.
“I imply, any followers of Stargirl, they know, certainly, that Cindy Burman and even earlier than, Cindy Burman is Dragon King’s daughter. And that dynamic is wonderful,” Lee just lately advised “It is such as you mentioned, there’s, on the coronary heart of this complete present, is household. And be it villains or the great guys, it is all comes with its personal baggage. And mine has quite a lot of baggage when you consider you are coping with 100 12 months outdated father, who’s spent his life experimenting on himself and others, attempting to good himself, his daughter, to additional his endeavors on the earth domination.”
He continued, “And that each one interprets so curiously in Stargirl as a result of Cindy’s nonetheless coping with simply highschool. She’s coping with boys and attempting to be fashionable. After which she has to cope with her father who’s in a lair, on this outfit, half reptile, half man, hundred-year-old man, giving her orders. It is an attention-grabbing factor. And I feel that is the place we get to have quite a lot of enjoyable. And that is an awesome factor to start out with. There’s truly quite a lot of attention-grabbing humor that’s woven in there by Geoff and the writers.”
