Blackfire

(pop culture)
Created by Marv Wolfman and George Pérez in The New Teen Titans #23 (1982), the crimsonhaired Blackfire has survived as both a leather-clad villainess and a proud monarch for her people. Years before adopting the name Blackfire, the first-born daughter of the royal family of the planet Tamaran, Komand'r, was sickly, and she grew up unable to harness the ability of solar-powered flight like the other Tamaraneans. She became insanely jealous of her favored younger sister, Koriand'r, eventually joining the warring Citadel Empire and allying with them to force her sibling's exile. Eventually, both sisters were captured by the alien race known as Psions; the torturous experiments performed on the two women endowed them with massive energy powers. Komand'r continued her successful rise in the ranks of the Citadel until a clash with Koriand'r, now called Starfire, and her heroic companions, the Teen Titans. Although Blackfire was thought to have been killed, she survived and eventually came to oppose the ideals of the Citadel. Helping to free Tamaran, she became its warrior queen. When Tamaran was destroyed in a conflict in the Vegan star system, the survivors of their world settled on New Tamaran, but that planet was later eradicated by the Sun-Eater. Thought dead, Komand'r again returned with a vengeance, determined to find a new home for her people, regardless of the cost. Komand'r fought on the side of good in The Rann-Thanagar War (2005). Blackfire appeared in a 2003 episode of the Teen Titans cartoon (2003–2006), in which she was wanted for crimes in the Centauri System. Later, she became Grand Ruler of Tamaran until a devious scheme forced her into exile. DC Direct released a Blackfire action figure in 2004.
