Let me correct myself by saying that, a year ago, I would've been hands-down incessantly and vehemently voicing my opinions with "Why Dick and Kori belong together" (Blah, blah). Right now, I figure this image of Starfire is a lot better than her previous incarnation. Why?
- I understand that the internet exploded after they thought Lodbell was implying that she had a memory of a gold fish (which is totally not the case), because I was kinda' sad too. But after reading countless other user reviews of both RHAO #1 and #2, I realized this may be the best rendition of Starfire yet! Why? Because she's not clingy. She's not overly dependent on people anymore. She isn't this cry baby who after years of break up and hooking up on and off is still hampering for Dick even if its obvious that she should MOVE ON.
- Starfire is now tailored to be this free, independent and sexually liberated female force that no one can stop, and we have Lodbell to thank for that. I don't understand why some feminists can't see that.
- She's hip and stronger now. She is almost leveling herself to he aura of Wonder woman now that she's not always looking over her shoulder wondering if she still has friends or not, because frankly, right now, she's fine being herself and loving herself the way she is.
- She's as confident as hell, and I don't see why people hate this new version of her.
I love the new Starfire. :)
