Koriand'r, better known as Starfire, is a main character in the superhero team, Teen Titans comics and animated series. She is an alien princess from Tamaran. She shoots fiery blasts from her hands and leaves a trail of fire behind her when she flies. She is known for incredibly skimpy outfits, which are toned down somewhat in the animated shows aimed at young teens.

Canon

Comics

Koriand'r learned to speak English by kissing Dick Grayson; her people have a talent for picking up languages through touch. (She later admitted that the kiss was not strictly necessary - she just liked him enough to do it that way.)

In 2011, when DC's "Nu 52" reboot/retcon went live, Starfire joined the series Red Hood and the Outlaws, initially consisting of her, Jason Todd, and Roy Harper--all known as rebels who were comfortable with more violence than their previous teams condoned. She was paired with Roy, with canon glossing over her previous engagement to Roy's best friend by saying Tamaranians don't have much long-term memory, so she has forgotten basically everything that happened to her during her time with the Team Titans. Fandom was not happy.

Shortpacked released a comic strip: DC Comics: Bad at Math, showing how the comics alienated the former tv-viewing fanbase.

Cartoon

Fandom
