P:R Approved: Erica Henderson’s Starfire!

Note: Although she wasn’t the first hero to go by the name Starfire, this long-time Teen Titan defined won out and made it her own. Originally created by Marv Wolfman and George Perez, this alien princess has received a much-needed wardrobe upgrade courtesy of frequently featured P:R artist here, Erica Henderson. Seemingly inspired equally by Perez’ comics interpretation and Starfire’s appearance in the stellar Teen Titans animated series, Henderson gives her a hairband for that tousled and rebellious hair, along with a wardrobe that’s revealing without being one-dimensional sex object. I’d love to see Kori take this outfit to heart and show what she can really do in comics. – Chris A.

  1. She looks more like Starfire’s sister, Komand’r/Blackfire, with that slightly mischievous expression on her face.

  2. I like the illustration, but I feel like the outfit has bad lines. We’ve got the shorts over the capris length tights, the boots and the loose belt. That top feels like someone took one of her usual outfits and added sleeves to it. It’s more like her jazzercise clothes than a uniform. I feel like you could have done so much more with flowy material and “strategic” cuts to maintain a sense of being covered without losing her trademark sensuality. I think the bangles are nice, definitely something she’s have on her

  3. This feels more like an “everyday outfit” to me than a real uniform, but I like it. It’s cute and casual and has some shout-outs to some of her comic costumes. It feels like something a super-powered teenager might actually wear in her time off.

  4. I prefer Starfire as the team sex doll with zero positive qualities, because it adds so much to her character.

    In all seriousness, I’m a fan of Erica Henderson’s past work, but there’s nothing special about this costume. Thomas pretty much summed it up for me.

  5. If you got rid of the belt and bracelets, I’d like this more. But I like the concept, it’s attractive and shows some skin but isn’t extremely slutty.
