YMMV / Starfire

  • Angst? What Angst?: For someone who endured six years of brutal slavery and torture at the hands of her cruel sibling, Starfire is a surprisingly well-adjusted and optmistic individual in general who easily befriends the Teen Titans.
  • Broken Base: While many are happy to see her with a solo series that doesn't just treat her as Ms. Fanservice, some find that the book plays around with the Fish out of Water idea a bit too much, to the point of Flanderization.
  • Can't Un-Hear It: Thanks to the Teen Titans cartoon, you'll probably hear Hynden Walch as Kori.
  • Character Rerailment: After her controversial New 52 debut in the much-lambasted Red Hood and the Outlaws, her newest solo series features a less Stripperific costume, and a more bubbly and well-rounded personality.
  • Fandom Rivalry: Faded once the New 52 set in, but before, this was the case between the Starfire and Batgirl fandom. Both wanted their character to end up with Dick Grayson, and even the editors got in on this! However, these days, Dick is considered much more of a Bat-character, and the New 52 as a whole has made it very clear that Dick/Babs takes priority.
  • Les Yay:
    • Starfire being a very affectionate person mixed with a rather blasé attitude toward personal space and sex leads to this quite often. In her solo series her relationship with Stella Gomez and Atlee is full of this trope.
    • In Issue 9 Atlee has to help Stella adjust to Strata's atmosphere by blowing air into her lungs. It basically looks like a kiss.
  • Moe: She's this in her solo series for some. Her fish out of water tendencies making her seem adorably awkward.
  • Theiss Titillation Theory: Though her solo series redesign downplay this trope considerably, Starfire's original outfit could only be described as part-lingerie, part-bondage gear, and the New 52 managed to be even skimpier than that!
