James Robinson’s Starman is one of DC comics’ legendary runs, so of course, we have to read “Starman: Sins of the Father” for our legacy character discussion. In this comic, Jack Knight reluctantly picks up the mantle of Starman from his father to defend Opal City from The Mist. We talk about the rich family dynamic of the Knights, the self-motivated Shade, and of course the themes of legacy and inheritance. Plus, that gorgeous art just brings Opal City to life, doesn’t it?
