Cosplayer Rosanna Rocha concludes our cosplay bomb day with this amazing version of Starfire. Source.
FYI, this is just the kind of image I like to show when anyone complains about how New 52 Starfire is over-sexualized. This is her debut costume in real-life form. Coupled with her free love personality, she was pretty sexualized even back then.

Red Hood and the Outlaws 4 focuses on Starfire’s fight with a creature named Crux. Elsewhere, Jason and Roy have other issues to contend with.
The issue opens up with Jason and Roy at a bar. Roy contemplates his sobriety versus his need to cover Jason’s back. They eventually beat up a whole bunch of guys, and a security guard arrests them. Meanwhile, Starfire is covering them from the top. She eventually has to contend with a human turned alien creature named Crux. His parents were scientists, and were killed. He then combined alien DNA with his in order to seek out, and hunt any aliens on Earth. A Tamaranean warship crashed into his parents’ car, and he has a certain vendetta towards them now. He gets excited when he finds Starfire. While Jason and Roy uncover the security guard as a member of a secret race who wished not to be disturbed the All-Caste which Jason and friends are investigating, Roy goes off to help Starfire when he realizes she is in trouble. Jason ends up having to finish contending with the guard turned enemy.
Scott Lobdell continues to handle the characterizations quite nicely while moving the story forward. Kenneth Rocafort’s art is quite awesome, and brings a nice tone to the book. It is a mixture of realism and surrealism that makes his art necessary to the book. I look forward to seeing where the story picks up next month.
Today I finish up my review of the New 52’s Bat-titles over at the Examiner.
Eddy Barrows isn't Scott McDaniel, but writer Kyle Higgins does his best to emulate Chuck Dixon.
This time around I cover Batman: The Dark Knight, Nightwing and Red Hood & the Outlaws. Read the full piece at the Examiner.
Two bad books and one good one. I will let you figure out which is which.
