I enjoy this wholly, and undoubtedly the influence of Geoff Johns is a large piece of this. It seems that he wants to reassemble the JSA around Stargirl and S.T.R.I.P.E., and that would be fine with me.

The Injustice Society intrigues me as well since it's not just a single villain; that's something that hasn't really been done in the Arrowverse except for the Legion of Doom in Legends. Mixing it up creates interest.
In episode 2, "S.T.R.I.P.E.", (SPOILER WARNING), a character named Barbara (?) Chapel was introduced; this makes me think her daughter, Beth, will be presented, and become the new Dr. Mid-Nite. And Brainwave went down last night, so his son, Henry King. Jr., might be on deck as Brainwave Jr.
I wonder about the rest of Infinity Inc. and who could be pretty easily done. Fury, surely, but her parentage has to kinda change. Ditto for the Huntress. I can't imagine Power Girl in this (although what fun it would be!) They seem to be setting up Hourman too. We've seen Sylverster Pemberton is dead. And there's no way they can use Robin....
Or is there? On Legends, they were just at Hudson University*, and there was no mention of Dick Grayson - but we know that Batman exists in that universe, so likely Robin does too.** The Earth-2 version could pop up, associated with the Kevin Conroy Batman.
It could be. The others are tough because they're fliers, and that's tough. Maybe Obsidian, but his effects are pretty rough as well. Of course, there can be surprises. A Kid Flash or Speedy would be delightful!
We're really liking this show, and I'm expecting a fun run.
