Second Dr. Midnite to Possibly Appear?

Much of this show seems to be about passing the torch on to the next generation of superheroes. The Justice Society of America has traditionally always been the first team of superheroes in the DC Universe and is often placed before the active Justice League (of course there is the Legion of Superheroes as well but they are from the future). We've seen through casting choices that the founding members of the JSA are older but not old enough to necessarily be out of the heroics game.

That said we turn our attention to Henry Thomas, who we know has been cast for the part of Dr. Charles McNider. In the comics, when Dr. McNider dies in Zero Hour, a new Dr. Midnite emerges. That role is taken by Dr. Beth Chapel. Actor Kron Moore has taken the role of a Dr. Chapel on the show. She is slated to appear in episodes 2, 3, 4, 7 & 8 so far! Could this Dr. Chapel be the successor to Henry Thomas' Dr. Midnite?

Another option is that Stargirl is setting up a multi-season arc were we may see some of these characters take on hero roles in other seasons. A perfect example of this in other Greg Berlanti-produced shows is The CW's The Flash. Both Cisco Ramone and Caitlin Snow adopt their alter-egos in subsequent seasons after the pilot season.

One more option is that Anjelika Washington, who joined the cast almost directly after Brec Bassinger did, could play Beth Chapel. This would keep in line that many of the new heroes are all high school aged and much of the show follows the heroes and their high school issues along with their hero training.

Of course, there is always the possibility that its a coincidence. For now, DC Universe has not commented on any characters listed as "An Unnamed DC Comics Character". Let us know what you think in the comments below and in the forum! Follow us on Twitter for up-to-the-minute news coverage!

I think I'd like it if it was Anjelika Washington
