Creation

Starfire was created by writer Marv Wolfman and artist George Perez in 1980, when new characters were needed to fill out the revamped roster of the upcoming New Teen Titans series. She made her debut in DC Comics Presents #26 (October 1980). Wolfman conceived the character as an exotic alien princess who was both sexy in appearance and a fierce warrior, essentially a ” Red Sonja in outer space.” Based on this description, Perez visually designed Starfire to have golden skin, long flowing red hair, completely green eyes, a voluptuous figure, and revealing bikini-like armor. Her character was immediately popular with fans, and her look and costume has remained virtually unchanged since her initial appearance three decades ago.
