Starfire is a princess from the planet Tamaran. She was next in line to be queen but she was betrayed by her sister Blackfire and exiled. Starfire saw the television series Alf and thought it was okay to eat cats. Robin tracked an alien life form and taught Starfire how to love a cat rather than eat it then invited her to try out for the Teen Titans. In another version of the Titans' origins, Blackfire stole the throne from Starfire and sold her into slavery. Robin freed her from Gordanians aboard their vessel in the Vega System. She kissed him to learn English then stated she found him completely resistible and detected a strong odor from his mouth. After learning of his mission, Starfire wasn't so sure she had anything to offer and stated she had nothing and was alone. Robin countered she didn't have to be.
On Earth, Starfire is an alien struggling to fit in and learn the ways of its cultures while driving Robin insane with unrequited puppy love. She thinks of him more like a brother. Saddened to see Robin distraught over not having an archenemy, and thus not being a real superhero, became Starfire the Terrible. She came up a costume, evil laugh, henchman, Death Bot army, and laser equipped secret lair (in the backyard of the Titans Tower). She began her campaign to unleash evil on the world by destroying Robin's year supply of hair gel. Starfire blew up the Moon and drank the Titans' milk straight out of the carton. The Titans invaded her secret lair but Robin was left alone after the others were dumped into a pool of piranha. Robin defeated her with his motorcyle's wheel punch.
In a possible future, 30 years from the present, Starfire had returned to her home planet Tamaran in the Vega System. She accepted the responsibility of leading the Tamaraneans as their queen. Cyborg and Beast Boy visited her and after defeating several Tamaranean warriors, urged Starfire to go see a movie with them. She refused on account of all her duties as queen but returned to Earth to help the others prevent them from using a time machine and altering the timeline.
After Christmas, Starfire was about to depart for her home planet to take part in the Great Kergoff and destruction caused by Gilnark the Terrible but Cyborg, Raven, and Beast Boy got her to stay by lying and saying there was a Second Christmas. Starfire followed through on their instructions but Second Santa did not appear to her. When Robin made the others tell the truth, she flipped out. The power overload caused by the misuse of too much Christmas lights led to the tower blowing up. Nearly a year later, the Titans woke up from their coma. Celebrating a true miracle of having not to wait for Christmas, Starfire looked outside and saw Second Santa. Starfire later implored her teammates to stop using violence to subdue their enemies and use compassion instead, seemingly working on H.I.V.E. temporarily. She also proved to be a great detective in her own right after learning about the three classic rules of a stake-out - locate a den of criminal activity, indirect observation, and concealment.
Starfire's natural instinct to show love got her and the Teen Titans in trouble when Raven tasked them with guarding the chest holding the Twin Destroyers of Azarath until she could gather ingredients for a banishment spell. Starfire could not fight the impulse and loved the Destroyers. After having lot's of fun with them, it was time to put them back in the chest. Starfire gave them a goodbye kiss, changing them into an egg. They then hatched as a giant hideous beast. To make matters worse, only Starfire could reverse the process. Through some urging, Starfire was mean enough to change them back. But she forgot her lesson and kissed them again. The other Titans were curious about Starfire's upbringing and urged her to agree to a visit Tamaran. Starfire was hesitant at first but she was happy to show them Tamaran. However, at the Tamaranian palace, Cyborg caused a political conflagaration. Starfire rushed off to rally together a planetary defense against the Blood Dominion.
In the wake of the battle between Tamaran and the Blood Dominion, only 3/4 of the planet was destroyed. Starfire brokered a truce by offering her hand in marriage to General Thraxis. After the wedding, Starfire bid the other Titans goodbye and was about to join Thraxis' side as he conquered the universe. Robin objected and declared only he would be the one to force Starfire to marry him. Robin forced an annulment by blowing Thraxis up with exploding Birdarangs. The war resumed and Starfire was charged with dishonoring her people. The Titans saved the world by showing bravery and killing Gridnock the Skull Crusher by trying to see the positive in things like Starfire. But once Starfire offered to show them the rest of Tamaran, they immediately rejected the notion.
Dr. Light tried to destroy the city with his Light Bomb but Starfire flew it into Earth's atmosphere. The blast wave launched her back. As Robin tried to profess his love to her, Starfire regained consciousness and noticed a white cat had wandered into the crater. She named it Nibbles and began obsessing with it. Robin wanted that love and affection and dressed up like a cat. Starfire was unable to resist and named him Sassy Pants. The other Titans had enough and didn't like Robin turning her into a weird cat lady. Raven pretended to have allergies but Starfire decided to move to the Jump City Apartments with Sassy Pants. Several months later, Starfire discovered a box of abandoned kittens and brought it home. Several more months later, the other Titans scolded Robin for turning her into a cat lady. He realized the error of his ways and put on a dog costume to get rid of the cats and turn Starfire back to normal. During the brief stint of the League of Legs, Starfire went by Incredible Quad.
Starfire wanted to be Batman at first but happily accepted Cyborg's idea to pretend to be the Flash. Cyborg noticed she had to work on her endurance though. When the Teen Titans faced Darkseid, Starfire interrupted his threatening speech and offered him a lozenge for his scratchy throat. Darkseid accepted it and thanked Starfire after his throat cleared up. After observing Cyborg freak out over the rules of dibs, Starfire revealed her secret garden, outside the tower, to him and instructed him in the ways of peace and quiet. Cyborg, however, tried to help the other Titans which resulted in the destruction of the garden. Starfire shot straight up to the stage 4 freak out and rampaged through Jump City with the other Titans. Cyborg recreted the garden in the city and calmed everyone down. He apologized to Starfire and she forgave him.
Starfire's wrestler persona was the Yeller, a crazy screaming woman who speaks loudly for no apparent reason. The Yeller was inspired by Wild Man's trash talk and wanted to get coffee because of it. Since the revolution of Tamaran around its star takes 164.79 Earth years, she never celebrated her birthday on Earth. Beast Boy decided to share his latest one with her despite the others' reservations. Starfire kept blowing out the candles too early during the song, got Beast Boy's cool presents - a drawing from Cyborg and two movie tickets from Raven, and fought over who got to break open the pinata. Beast Boy defeated her in the city and broke open the pinata. He felt bad and apologized. She, too, apologized for getting caught up in it. Beast Boy turned himself into a donkey and stuffed his mouth with candy so Starfire could experience hitting a pinata for the first time.
Starfire decided to do a circus act with some of her pet cats during her audition in the Justice League's Next Top Talent Idol Star. Called the "Circus of the Felines", Starfire started by ordering Mr. Sparkles to jump through a hoop. Sparkles did but landed flat on his face. The League was not amused. She told Mr. Buttons to play soccer. He fell on his face. Superman yawned and Batman was bored. She told Mr. Fluffles to recite Shakespeare. He meowed then fell flat on his face. Aquaman fell asleep. Starfire moved to the final act and unveiled Mr. Twinkle Bow. He turned out to be a vicious tiger with a bow on his head. Twinkle Bow lunged at the League and attacked them. Starfire was rejected. She tried to hold back her emotions back stage but broke down and streams poured out of her eyes. Birdarang offered her a tissue but she declined and blew her nose on the back of her cat Mr. Sparkles.
During breakfast, Starfire started pretending the waffle-maker spoke with a Swedish accent. The others questioned why she hanged out with inanimate objects. Starfire stated she simply pursued relationships with those she found interesting. Raven told her it was weird and advised her to stop. She teleported the waffle-maker into the trash. Robin decided to prove they were more fun than things and they set off to see what H.I.V.E. was up to. Starfire sniffled and told the waffle-maker she would miss it. As they spied on the H.I.V.E., Starfire became enthralled with their ice cream scooper. She charged into the H.I.V.E. Tower alone and beat them up then flew off with the scooper she named, The Scoop. They scooped clouds and spelled "la la la", went into a photo booth, rode the swan boat, danced, and swung around in the park. They agree to be best friends forever. On Tuesday at 11 pm, Gizmo sneaked into the Titans Tower and stole back Scoop. Starfire woke the next morning and snapped.
Starfire bagged and tied up the other Titans and interrogated them with the waffle-maker. Cyborg eventually clued her to the security tapes. Starfire learned the truth and called Gizmo on the Titans Communicator. Gizmo refused to give up and invited her to try and take Scoop back. She fell for the trap and broke into the H.I.V.E. Tower and was trapped. H.I.V.E. proceeded to mock her for being friends with a thing. The other Titans realized they were just as dependent on things for satisfaction and set off to rescue her. Scoop suddenly became animated and took out H.I.V.E. by itself then liberated Starfire. She was happy to be reunited and more so when she learned the other Titans understood her. Raven gave into the others' demand for new super powers to teach them a lesson about not taking what they had for granted. Starfire was given the powers of Plastic Man and could stretch her body parts. She reached an arm down a hall into Cyborg's room then up a ceiling vent and to the bathroom. The arm pulled the curtain and made Cyborg scream then went into the toilet and out the drainage pipe, sending Robin back into the ocean.
Starfire's arm went past Sticky Joe, wrapped around the Lexcorp building, and broke into Lex Luthor's office. She wrote a memo then tried to reach for the ringing phone but reached her limit. Her arm snapped back and she was tangled with Beast Boy and Robin. After some time, Starfire became proficient. She bounced around the city as a spring then got real high, turned into a helicopter then broke into Luthor's office again. She answered the phone and told the caller they had the wrong number. The Titans confronted Gizmo, who was about to mount a robot invasion from his floating fortress. Starfire turned into a boat and transported the others. After Raven was zapped with a Kryptonite ray and weakened because she had Superman's powers, Robin rallied the others proclaiming they could use their dumb powers to win if Vibe, Saturn Girl, Aqualad, and Plastic Man could. Robin had Starfire turn into a slingshot and launch him onto the fortress' deck. Once Cyborg and Jose captured Gizmo, Starfire reached over and grabbed Gizmo and stretched to the Jump City Juvenile Correction Facility but she reached her limit and snapped back. The momentum launched Gizmo into space and he drifted to the Sun.
Starfire surprised her teammates by performing her special song and winning the Justice League's Next Top Talent Idol Star: Second Greatest Edition despite them thinking she was the "Ringo" of the team. Starfire learned how the Rangers taught their members valuable business skills that set them up for success when they grew up. She could see how that aligned with her dreams of becoming a successful business alien princess and she joined the organization. The other Titans ate all the highly coveted green boxes and left her with the inferior ones. She set up a stand in the city park but failed to sell a single box. The Titans taught her the three main business skills: decision making, people skills, and business ethics. Raven instructed to make a decision quick. She failed and got slapped. Raven regrouped and held a basket of puppies and a basket of kittens over a portal and told Starfire to choose one. She chouldn't and they both dropped through the portal.
Cyborg and Beast Boy taught her how to make eye contact to put customers at ease, lighten the mood with a fun conversation or blow their feeble minds with a magic trick. During the role-play, Cyborg and Beast Boy got into a fight and Starfire was knocked into the living room. Robin taught her the last step, business ethics so she could succeed while staying within the confines of the law. He told her a story about a brother-in-law talking about a major technological breakthrough and refraining about buying the stock since it created an unfair advantage. With some pratice, Starfire was able to sell her first box to a jogger in the city park. She wondered if she could sell more. Starfire became a Ranger and sold her first box of cookies. She became a ruthless business alien princess and cornered the market on green boxes through her company Starfire Industries. Three weeks later, Starfire was overcome by greed and corruption. She showed little concern about the government opening an investigation into her ethical practices and ordered her employees to shut up, listen, and sell cookies or she would end them.
The other Teen Titans visited her in her office and Raven pointed out doubling the price of the green box was too expensive for them. Starfire took it as a sign she should triple the prices. The Titans and Starfire fought but they couldn't overcome her business skills of decision making, people skills, and business ethics, and super powers. Robin gave her an ultimatum, them or the cookie empire. Starfire made a quick decision and blasted Raven into the elevator then made eye contact with Beast Boy and Cyborg then did a magic trick, presenting the Joker card to them then it exploded. Robin grabbed her but she promised to share a perfectly legal insider stock tip with him. He asked what kind of returns it promised but she blasted him with an eye laser. Robin blew up her stock pile of green boxes with an exploding Birdarang and took out the top floor of Starfire Industries.
