STARFIRE - okay, so this is the one you're thinking of with the metal bikini and all the controversy following her first appearance post-Flashpoint. For better or worse (I've not read them) Starfire's in Red Hood and The Outlaws so gets in the in place column.
STAR HAWKINS - futuristic private eye? Yeah, can't see him reappearing.
STARMAN - can anyone really see Earth-2 written by James Robinson not containing a Starman at some point? Sure, it won't be Jack Knight but Ted Knight at least has to appear, doesn't he? Whether it's the Ted Knight or Prince Gavyn (both versions are shown in Who's Who) Starman or another one entirely, I'm going for a definite here.
STARRO - the big starfish kinda/sorta appeared in the last pages of Justice League #6 after the team had defeated Darkseid so I guess he goes in the in place column by default.
STAR SAPPHIRE - another already in place thanks to the Green Lantern titles, Carol's been running round in her sparkly underwear for some time now.
STEEL - as in Hank Heywood who died at the end of the Justice League Detroit experiment so he won't be back; however John Henry Irons is apparently in Action Comics so he gets to go in the in place column.
STEELCLAW - the mayor of Star City back in the old days. Can't see him returning.
STEPPENWOLF - here's a surprise. Of all the New Gods characters to get an appearance in the New 52 we had Darkseid as the Justice League's first villain accompanied by Desaad and Steppenwolf. Sure, he only appeared briefly and in the shadows but it's enough to get him in place.
STERLING SILVERSMITH - another little known Batman villain that, I'm confident in saying, we won't be seeing again.
STONE BOY - I was all ready to write this guy off but a quick check on the internets shows he appeared in Legion of Super Heroes. Guess that's enough to get him in the in place column.
STRIPESY - hmmm, while I think it possible that we might get an appearance of the Star Spangled Kid in Earth-2 I'm not so confident of the slightly corny named Stripesy. However, I'll put him in the possibles.
So in summary six in place (Starfire, Starro, Star Sapphire, Steel, Steppenwolf and Stone Boy) one definite prediction (Starman) and one possible (Stripesy)
