[quote=“Jimmy Palmiotti”]We didn’t want to take on Starfire. [laughs] What happened was: we didn’t ask for Starfire. They called us and said, “What do you think of Starfire?” Amanda was like, “Oh! I remember the Wolfman/Perez run!” She had a good memory of her. I was like, “She was the orange girl who flies around.”
We were both talking about it, and they said, “Well, would you be interested in doing a Starfire series?” We needed to think about it, because we need to think about who she is and if she’d be right for us. Amanda already knew everything about Starfire, which was an advantage for us. I started reading the old stuff, which, as it turns out, I had read when it first came out.
And then we both read the New 52 stuff, and decided yeah, if we’re going to do it, we should do an amalgam of who Starfire is. Not necessarily follow any of it right down to the letter, but get to the heart and soul of who she is, which is an alien coming to earth trying to blend in. Once we figured that out, and how we could package it to DC, we pitched it and they liked it. We got lucky![/quote]
