Who Will Win?
DC needs to get a grip with their comics. Just last month, they laid off over decades worth of experienced writers and artists. This is not the route they should be going. They build nothing up towards Starfire having a daughter, and so far from the character bio given, Mandy sounds uninspired. I feel like these new "diverse" characters are mocking real diversity. No sort of effort is put into these new characters. I wish DC would actually care about the characters, care about portrayals of LGBT+ characters. Again this could be a niche, we had great comics this year. But the point is, DC is going the route of another comic publisher [which I can't say the name due to guidelines], dropping characters until one stick. I only represent my own opinions, maybe you agree or disagree, but what are your opinions?
In the movie, I heard Dick talking on a phone with a girl named 'Kori' and the picture on the phone looked like the girl had red hair. and slightly tan skin. Wearing a shirt that looks purple. So my bet is that the Nightwing in Batman vs Robin is dating Starfire.
tl;dr marked by BOLD text (Seriously this post isn't that long though)
The announce of a "Starfire" Comic series by Amanda Conner has been among the new bits of news recently released by DC. Along with this news, we got a picture of Starfire's new costume design (Link: http://cdn.bleedingcool.net/wp-content/uploads/2015/02/starfire_580_54d4455aa93ab4.02851888.jpg).
From what I can tell, the general consensus (at least with the costume) is a positive one, with people claiming that it seems more practical (in the sense that her nipples don't seem liable to slip out at any moment) and that it is not overly sexual. Others feel it is not sexy enough for Starfire, and that the design itself doesn't respect her previous costume history enough.
So, with regards to Starfire's interesting costume history, I have a few questions I'd like to ask the community; I'm curious to see what your general feelings on this topic are as I'm working on my own redesign for the character.
1. Do you like or dislike the new costume for Starfire and why?
2. Which has been your favourite costume for Starfire and why? (Although there have been lots of variants over the years, I think it's fair to split this into "Classic", "Teen Titans TV" and "Red Hood and the Outlaws" versions.)
3. What do you think her costume should look like? (Consider things like practicality, and her being a trained fighter, an ex slave, being from royalty, being a nudist who doesn't really care about showing skin and the fact that she gets her powers from UV radiation (which can be blocked by most clothes to varying extents, although Starfire would probably get most of her energy from dedicated charging sessions, probably with some kind of super tanning machine lol).
Feel free to link interesting alternatives. I'll try and save you some trouble if you're considering doing that, by providing you with this extensive Pinterest board to peruse: https://uk.pinterest.com/NuvaTube/dc-comics-starfire/

I'm curious to see what people think. Finally, if your interested, I found an interesting article that covers common misconceptions about Starfire's character (written around that controversial first issue of Red Hood and the Outlaws so it's a little old). I learnt a few things from it, maybe you guys will to :)
