Seriously, she has romantic relationships and sex with a entirely different race of animal!
How come nobody talks about Kory being a cat?
@waezi2: I understand how confusing Starfire's race being evolved cats but you gotta remember that was from the '80s. Nowadays people think of her as a slutty princess alien. Thanks New 52. Also here's a fun fact, Tamaran is in the same Galaxy as Krypton.
@waezi2: They never said anything about it so I actually don't know. All I know is when her and Komand'r were experimented on by the Psions and given their Starbolt powers they need the rays of the sun. The rest of the Tamaraneans need sunlight to fly. Never specified what kind of sun but solar energy.
I am actually not sure that's entirely true considering Blackfire couldn't fly at all regardless of how much sun/starlight she got before the Psions intervened.She still had the strength and the rest of the Tamaranian physical characteristics, so she could apparently still absorb radiation.
Never depicted as being weakened by it.
I think its been largely overlooked & forgotten because Tamaranians being descended from cats is one of the sillier aspects of her original origin, they downplayed it greatly even before the reboot came along. Starfire looks nothing like something that evolved from cats & there is already a sentient feline species in the Vega System, the Karnans like Felicia & Tigorr. Basically, I think its something they came up with to make her seem more alien but decided to disregard it once they realized how silly or nonsensical it was, Starfire & her people, despite being clearly alien, are too humanoid looking to be descended from cats.
