Do you agree with Starfire?

Starfire talks about how we shouldn't live our good old days and we should live in the moment . She said,"We appreciate the past.We respect it. But we don't live there.We live here.Now.In the moment."Starfire was giving advice to Jason.I thought this was really philosophical of Starfire.Do you agree or disagree?

I think she's right!! Live in the moment, because if you dwell on the past, the present will go flying right past you and you would never know!!

Living in the past NEVER works, every one always sees it through rose tinted classes

Seconded, though some people are better at it than others.

Agree, it only natural to look back on what was good or bad, but if you keep looking behind you, might walk into a wall XD

She's really not saying anything that philosophical. She's telling a person who was obsessed with a past trauma that they need to move on.

Like most wonderful things in life, easier said than done.

well I guess have to be cold one here appreciate past is one thing. Learning from it is another. You had plenty of chances of stopping your sister before she lost it. She was haunted by her past. Your people's appreciation of it of the made her think she was monster that was foretold without a moment of second thought and she accepted. I know new universe timeline has not been cleared yet.

Yes living in the past is unhealthy but we all have to take a moment and look back where we went wrong and right after everything is done.

Wasn't she shown, in this very issue, sniffing the glove of someone whose name she doesn't remember in order to provoke a pleasant memory of a lover FROM THE PAST?

It's a flimsy attempt to make her seem thoughtful and more than 2 dimensional. If we only live in the 'now' then you forget history & are doomed to continue making the same mistakes. She may as well just come out & say "I like hedonism, it's less boring than not being a raving nympho".

"we appreciate the past, we respect it" she obviously looks back on the past as seen in the latest issue, but she dosnt dwell on it too long, dont understand all the hate and negativity towards starfire

The initial reason was her lack of personality and being a sex doll with the memory of blow fish in the first few issues. It's either ignorance of not reading the series because of the negative buzz the first issue created and that opinion is still carried or you have read the series but just don't believe Lobdell's intentions.

@god_spawn:  
 
In order to trust Lobdell's intentions, you'd have to believe that Jason Todd had this amazing, life changing conversation with Kori, his respected unexpected teacher/friend AND that he had no problem throwing that friendship under the bus by lying to Roy about his relationship with her for no reason, and also that Kori was being "Sarcastic" or "Evasive" about not knowing Dick Grayson, AND just not remembering who he was.

Are we sure Morrison doesn't have a hand in writting this series? Or at least offers Lobdell "tips" during lunch.

This new incarnation of Starfire is more than meets the eye. I like the fact that even in this super sensual, sometimes phylosophical, hard as nails chick...you can actually see that she is broken, damaged, and ultimately decieved by herself. Her advice was preatty logical and like real people, sometimes we can give great advice but not follow it. I think that one of the best things the writer has managed to convey through this characters is that they are not perfect, they are far from that but very close to humans allover the world with doubts and insecurities...Red Hood and the Outlaws its a great book for the broken heroes in search of Rehab and assylum I just hope that we can also see how they redeem themselves and come out from their shortcomings.

Appreciate the past. Respect the past. Don't live in the past. Live in the moment.

Easy to say, hard to do.

I do agree with the sentiment, however.

Living in the moment is the right thing to do, but also learn from past mistakes. However dwelling on the past is a waste of the short time we have on Earth.

@Nightstar1:

lol true but she wants to remember dick because she appreciates that time she spent with him. she isnt trying to find him, his stuff was there and she was remninded of him. so ya i can see where you're comin from but then again she is living on her life without being tied down from it

#33 Posted by wessaari (623 posts) - - Show Bio

@AtraCruor: im pretty sure he said that so roy wouldnt go after her. and no if lobdell was taking notes from morrison we would have jason looking like a david bowie pill again

lame attempt to add depth to the character and reason her being a hoe by using the most generic philosophy.
