I've read a friend's copy of this issue.
First, I don't think the rage and controversy made Lobdell deviate from his main plot. He's too confident in himself not to stick to his guns. However, I think it's not too much to guess that he made small alterations in the script and scenes of this reveal issue to make Kori's motives and being more clear and to ease up any remaining controversy. There were a lot of subtle and not so subtle touches that were directed at his critics in this issue that I could see.
Don't get me wrong, if he did make alterations even in indirect response at the criticism, it's a GOOD THING. This will mean a better book moving forward, better character portrayals, and, I hope, greater awareness on the side of Lobdell as to how something as simple as a comment from a character can change the perception of different demographics, especially female readers.
Second, I still think that if he spent more time making the first issue palatable for everyone, male and female, old fan and new, this controversy should never happened in the first place. There are so many small elements that he could have altered or done differently that would still result in the same slow reveal but without the animosity and divergence that the actual comic caused.
That said, I'm glad this is out. I still wish Rocafort would make female poses in this comic something a little less pandering to the lusty young male demographic, but I'm content with Starfire's nature and motivations. I have that at least.
