Starfire and Storm




I am interested to see how Starfire will be portrayed on the upcoming Titans live action series.  There have been a lot of different characterizations in the comics and animation, and I hope that they strike the right balance.  She should be a little naive about Earth culture, but not to the point of coming off as an idiot.  She should be portrayed as a beautiful free spirit, but never as easy or slutty either. She has to know how to summon her warrior side as well.  George Perez and Marv Wolfman knew what they were doing, the producers need only to look at their take on the character.

What's wrong with a promiscuous character (as long as Scott Lobdell is kept far, far away)? The Arrowverse's White Canary is pretty damn awesome.

As long as they portray her as redhead not a blonde and leave her ability to absorb languages by kissing I will be happy. The Starfire in Teen Titans now is very different than the Starfire from her series on the Caribbean island.

The Starfire in Teen Titans now is nowhere _near_ how Perez and Wolfman drew her back in the day. What was wrong with letting her keep her Little Orphan Annie eyes, post-Flashpoint? The same as what war is good for; absolutely nothing!

So much about Koriand'r, and nothing about her brother S'Lantro. (I think he was a Plaid Lantern.)

If he was a Plaid Lantern, that would make his name "Hyeland'r."

And, no, he can't have _both_ names. There can be only _one_.

if Blaine Crowley was refering to the scantily-clad Starfire, a Devil's advocate would say that Pokemon, with their powers, were a hit without being ,design-wise, girled up, unlike My Little Pony. P. S.:At least in the video games.

...also Yu-Gi-Oh (Dark Magician Girl), Lego chararacters (Lego Friends), and maybe Digimon.

Her brother's name was Myand'r.

To be honest, I'm fine with her not having the Little Orphan Annie eyes anymore.

@ Mat: does that mean he was prone to aimless wandering? ;-D

Mateus Honrado said...

I really don't know. XD

"Rats!" he exclaimed with a half-serious finger snap of disappointment: "And, here, I thought you knew everything."

Dear Ross: any chance of Deadpool meeting Silver Age Jerry Lewis?
