Apparently DC was holding back on their treatment of Starfire in one area....................personally I didn't like how she was portrayed either but I won't go there.....

But still....just for fun...here's the best part of Kickpuncher's rant.

Scott Lobdell gives his audience, his industry, possibly his entire gender the finger and says “Oh no, you mother#$#^ers. That’s not your fantasy. Your fantasy is a woman that will literally have sex with you just for existing. No woman with any standards, no matter how low, no matter how forgiving, could possibly be attracted to you, so here’s your new sex object—a brain-damaged goldfish with a rack. And you’re such a scared little boy, so afraid of commitment in even your own pathetic fantasies, that you’ll run away from a ‘clinger’ even if she’s as gorgeous, charming, and supportive as the woman Starfire used to be. You can’t bear even that slight chance that she’ll make you move out of your parents’ basement, get a real job, and make something of yourself. So I’ll cater to that too! Not only doesn’t she want a relationship, she won’t even remember you! That’s what you want in the end, isn’t it? A vagina-shaped goldfish! Look upon your lust, ye nerdy, and despair.”

I chuckled at the needlessly dirty Batwing phrase.

@Primmaster64: I don't think anyone in this thread is taking this too seriously, we're enjoying a rant. The person who made the rant is the one taking it too seriously.

yeah i agree, the whole new personality or lack of there of isn't that great, hopefully she evolves as the series progresses to learn to care more for humans and think of them more than just sex objects.

I hope something sends this guy into a frothing rage every day, because rants like this are pure gold. I laughed so hard I had to lie on the floor and catch my breath.
