Courtney cracks open a crate in the basement containing the Cosmic Staff, a mystical club with a mind of its own. The Staff hasn’t worked for anyone other than Starman until Courtney touches it, and the resulting glow is bright enough to track the surviving members of the Injustice Society of America, a crew of forgotten supervillains.
