    Here is the teaser for Robinson's JLA lineup:

    So you have Donna, Mon-EL (neat costume change), Dick, Hal, and who else?

    It looks like Starfire in the middle right rear, and Congorilla in the top left. I think that may be Vixen in the bottom left.
    This month's Titans pretty much confirms Starfire

    I'm open to the possibility of liking Starfire, but man does she ever need some character development.

    You know, honestly, I just don't give a shit about 90% of the Teen Titans, past or present. Probably because that franchise has been doing the same three fucking stories ever since Perez and Wolfman finished their run decades ago.

    I didn't know there was so much Starfire dislike out there. With those gams and those tomatoes, coupled with those peepers and the whole exotic alien thing, everyone would like her. Except other women in the DCU.

    You're all speciest, that's what you are.

    I like Starfire but yeah she's been written pretty terribley lately.

    It's a shame what the Titans franchise has turned into because I really loved the book when Johns was on it.

    I liked her well enough in the cartoon, which is maybe a little embarrassing.

    But that cartoon gave us the animated Brotherhood of Evil, so shut up!

    I feel like any Starfire only has three traits:

    1) I love Dick!
    2) I love dick!
    3) I'm mad!

    She's always read, to me, like a comic nerd's ideal woman. Oh, she's feisty, and sexual but she also displays a demure, innocent naivete! She's super hot and exotic, and if you know a foreign language she'll make out with you! And she gets naked like, all the damn time! Why? I dunno, she's an alien. She has different customs.

    Even in 52, under four of the best writers in the industry, she was only kind of interesting.

    I'll be honest, I've never read a story with her in it outside of the Teen Titans relaunch or 52, so I never knew what people thought of her. Even in Dixon's Nightwing run she only appeared in a flashback scene in the Wizard 1/2 issue, so I thought she wasn't that important until I started seeing TT scans and she was 10 minutes away form marrying Dick (and then was raped or something by her sister, I lost track). To me she's always stood in the way of the true Babs/Dick romance under certain writers, which is totally not cool.

    Also, it was always weird how she was sexual and everything but still "pure", in that she only ever dated Dick. Which ties into what you were saying about a comic nerd's fantasy, Munch.

    I liked Starfire when she was in Johns' Teen Titans. She actually had some depth, since she was responsible for the younger members. Then she was in 52, where I kinda liked her but generally found Adam Strange and Animal Man more interesting. Then she joined Titans and within a couple of issues, Winick had her having sex with Dick...

    I'm cautious about her being in the Justice League. On one hand, James Robinson likes to bring depth to fairly obscure characters. On the other hand, he's also shown that he's not shy of turning female characters into sex toys. Hopefully she'll get the former treatment.

    On the bright side, if all the Titans are in the JLA, that might mean they're cancelling Titans.
