Default Anna Diop is Starfire

24: Legacy's alumnus is the alien princess who shoots frikkin' laser beams from her hands. The mini-bio they gave her says she's a "no-nonsense, take no prisoners stranger" to Earth. It sounds like they're going with a more immediately assertive Kori. That ought to be interesting. I still hope they give her some sweet moments, if for no other reason than the comedy of a powerful warrior sipping mustard.

I wonder if she'll learn English the same way she did in the comics?

I'm wondering if they will only have her turn alien sometimes the way they do with Martian Manhunter in the Supergirl TV series.

Martian Manhunter is a shapeshifter and Starfire isn't. So I would think not.

I'm aware but I can see them only showing her as orange like in the comic when she powers up. Not that I'm saying it would be a good idea to do so.

no. Starfire should be orange all the time. that's the way the character is.

if you aren't going to get that right, don't even bother with the character.

I don't think judging out of context set pictures is fair.

How in the hell could they do SO good with Robin, Hawk, and Dove and then do...THIS?!?! Who thought this was acceptable?! I'm not crazy about Raven and BB, but this is... embarrassing.

Hopefully, the characterization is spot on, and honestly, I'm usually quite forgiving with changes made to a comic character's look if it makes sense. This just doesn't make any sense. And can you imagine the younger fans of CN's Teen Titans show? They're not even remotely gonna recognize their favorite character. That to me is an issue. Creative liberty is one thing. I don't know what this is...

Exactly, you don't know. Everyone is freaking out over an out of context set photo. This isn't an official first look like Robin was. We have no idea what is going on. But I guarantee you that is not her Starfire costume.

I saw the photos the other day and everything about these three looked terrible and though two had to do with skin color (in that Beast Boy should be green, Starfire orange, and wtf kind of cheap dye job is that on Raven's hair?) it isn't a finished look by any means but still, you can't expect people to see that and not think they were flashing back to the 90's (for some, before they were even born) with low budget effects and costumes.

Set pics or not, starfire looks like a disgrace. It looks comically bad, And cheap beyond reason. Beast boy to a lesser extent too.

Starfire isn't human, and her not being orange isn't a dealbreaker imo. Its everything else that's bad. But we're talking about an orange alien, it shouldn't matter what color the actress underneath is.
