Executive Veto: As bad as the Stripperific redesign for Starfire was, it could've been worse. The first issue was going to feature Starfire in a semi-transparent bikini, but the editorial response was essentially a very blunt "No."
Word of God: Lobdell himself stated he was very surprised at the amount of controversy the first issue caused. He goes on to say that he doesn't see why people see Starfire as an ADD-stricken Ethical Slut. He also assures disgruntled readers to keep reading, as answers will be revealed later, not that this has stopped some people from dropping the book outright.
