Besides her new personality, much controversy from the new52 Starfire was her costume. I mean seriously, how do those boob things remain intact? lol With the recent solicits from RHATO, it very likely that she'll keep her space suit. A suit in which she is very much covered. I personally like it. Although more colors would be nice, it seems to dull with just blue. Any thoughts?

It just looks kinda dull, especially in the first picture. But she looks nice in the second pic.

@TheDarkestNight: I like it but it needs an emblem, I'm a sucker for emblems

Oh boy. I much prefer this costume - she looks pretty fierce in it.

I like the leg armor :O

It looks better in the second picture but it's still weird. Why are only half her legs in armor? Oh well, it's still better than the travesty she wore before.

That's her space ship captain outfit, and she probably wont keep wearing after the arch is over.

Like it, but it needs more purple. I hate her "sexy" costume.

#10 Posted by DarinRosu (7 posts) - - Show Bio

should've been either purple or red n similar to C. Viper's Alt 1 costume in Super Street Fighter IV. This one looks too much like the "Supers" to me

Yay!

I hated the old costume, it just seemed sexist.

I hope they add a bit more coulour to it, though.

This is just her space outfit. She will revert back to her original soon.

I hope she won't seeing that she's still wearing it even after leaving Tamaran. AFAIK, RHATO #14 will be in earth and RHATO #15 will be in Gotham.

The first image looks eh, but this one looks good:

Although what's going on with the "bound feet" boots? Or are those just bell-bottom style pants falling over her heel?

Anyway, the problems with early issue portrayals of Starfire—for me at least—had more to do with:

  • The random, out-of-context pinup posing throughout the issue.
  • The goldfish memory thing that made it seem like Roy was taking advantage of the mentally disabled alien supermodel.
  • The complete reversal of her free love personality into a "fun sucks, let's have unemotional sex" ice queen personality.
  • Her apparent willingness to just go along with whatever Jason wanted, for no reason, and the fact that the only time she showed any personal agency was when she was fulfilling an obvious male fantasy with Roy.

Taken together, it sure read like a destruction of the character, especially when compared to books like Voodoo, which was far more successful in handling an unabashedly "sexy" female character. Cheesecake and sexy outfits aren't necessarily bad, it's context that you have to judge. Starfire's portrayal failed on the context presented, at least for those first three issues.

Since the book launched, she's become a little more even-handed in her presentation, though hardly any more nuanced. And her personality has definitely shifted to be darker and edgier and frequently sullen. It's a shame because that makes her not as fun. Characters like that are a dime a dozen. Pre-Flashpoint Starfire was unique.

Edit: Same situation as Harley Quinn really. It's not the fact that the outfit showed more skin, it's the transformation from something fun and unique to something common and boring.

Her regular clothes should be back soon anyway. The space outfit is pretty cool though.

@fodigg: Lovely breakdown, as always.

#18 Posted by PassionFlower (960 posts) - - Show Bio

I am thrilled to see her not naked for a change.

#19 Posted by Gambit1024 (9890 posts) - - Show Bio

Is it me, or are all of these armors starting to look the same?

I have to admit a secret fondness for the adamantium floss purple outfit.

WHAT THE F|_|CK!

DC should stop killing the fanservice

I love it!

#23 Posted by SupremeHyperion (1523 posts) - - Show Bio

although as a young lad I always liked the teen titans starfire attire I never thought it made much sense. I like the idea of the new armor look but the colors are all off.

I don't hate her old revealing costume, but this is really really nice too, my question is, will her powers still be okay? I heard she wore the revealing suit to absorb more solar radiation to power her...then again, Superman doesn't walk around in a bikini and he's in okay shape...

i didn't mind her first costume,and this costume in my opinion is just as good,or better.

And i really hate the fans,if you dont like the new 52,shut up.

I mean really,the new 52 is better imo and lots of other people,if you like aliens and grown men running around in boxer briefs,go ahead and read the old stuff,nobody is stopping you.

To be honest, I liked her old costume better than her current one. No I am not a guy who likes a little fan service here and there. I am a girl who likes the story of how and why she was created. She wore revealing outfits because she was supposed to be the sex symbol of the team. Now she's a confused alien with a different background.

...I think that's exactly what they're trying to change...

I agree, though Roy Harper being here is still enough to make me not want to buy this ever.

space outfit. gone soon. hate it anyway. back to stripperella.

#39 Posted by Sinestro2828 (1511 posts) - - Show Bio

I'm not a fan of the space suit, its really not Kory's style (granted, I prefer her original costume & persona over the New 52 version)

#40 Posted by sethysquare (3843 posts) - - Show Bio

Again, it is her space suit. People change outfit once in a white. She would go back to wearing the purple armored bikini soon.

@RazzaTazz: isnt that a little antagonistic

#42 Posted by LuckKid27 (15 posts) - - Show Bio

I like the outfit cause before she was such a slutty character oh wait she still is in the NEW 52!

#43 Posted by Funrush (1369 posts) - - Show Bio

Make it purple like her old costume and I'll approve.

#44 Posted by Video_Martian (5645 posts) - - Show Bio

Liking the space suit! :D Much better than the old N52 one.

Yeah, I like the costume, but the blue looks kind of ugly if you ask me. The purple looked better.

@Funrush: I actually wouldn't mind her wearing the same space suit but in purple. Although i like her wearing a new color, imo also her costume in the old DCU was a favorite of mine, I just wasn't so crazy about her first N52 costume b/c it was too unnecessarily skimpy and a bit sexist-looking :/
