halialkers: Starfire of New Teen Titans, orange alien with glowing fist in stripperific bikini (Revcekar H'vat Kanari)

I choose Starfire of Tameran.

I'll admit that the fanservice bit threw me off and made me take her less seriously. As did my assumption that the comics character served as comic relief the way the cartoon one did. The more I read about comics Starfire though, and about her past and how she'd overcome it to frankly be one of the few members of the Wolfman-era Titans to avoid massive Wangst storylines in the present day......the more I came to appreciate this character.

Besides she's one of the few who can make a Classical-Age attitude to military dress work like a charm. I found Comics-Starfire more worthy of respect in some ways because the Proud Warrior Race parts of her personality did not come to dominate all of her personality at the expense of the rest of it. To me, it was this balanced approach and that Starfire's been in fights with beings like Trigon and Imperiex and ended up being a real made-of-win fighter in them......I really wish they did more with these sides of Starfire's character than they did in the cartoon. She's the rare Titan whose original comics version was actually superior to the Cartoon version.

I agree with this. I hated that TV show and that was before I got into comics it seemed so rediculus to me. And then I started reading the Teen Titans and hated the show more because it was so out of character. My poor Gar D: And Kory oh Kory what did they do to you. Poor guys...

Maybe it's because Cyborg is the Titan I know least about except for him being sort of a big brother to the younger Titans and everything but as little as I watched of the cartoon his cartoon version seemed to have more personality, or maybe it was just a bigger personality... I don't know. I don't like that everyone after the show was like lol Raven's so Goth/Emo and all that but again from what little I watched of the show she didn't seem to bad.

I don't know.

You'd think.

I'd give anything for Donna to be in anything ever at all. Or for there to be no legal issues with any of the Wonder Girl crap or whatever. But that's besides the point. It is weird that he's been in that cartoon and Smallville (not that I watched that either), because like I said maybe it's because I know least about him but I think Cyborg is one of the more bland members of the Titans. Maybe that's just me thinking that though...
