Meet DC’s goodest kitty, Dex-Starr the Red Lantern cat
This is like the most tragic backstory ever… and now I’ll be rooting for Dex-Starr no matter how ruthless he gets in the DC Comic Book Universe!
Dex-Starr was an abandoned stray blue house cat from Earth who gets adopted by a single woman in Brooklyn who names him Dexter.
During a break-in, Dex-Starr scratched the burglar to try to save his owner, but tragically she was killed. Police arrived and kicked the cat out of the crime scene.
Homeless, he was grabbed by two street thugs and thrown off the Brooklyn Bridge, but the rage he felt caught the attention of a red power ring and it came to him before he hit the water.
As a member of the Red Lantern Corps, he killed the two thugs and slept on their skulls, proclaiming himself to be a "good kitty" using thoughts expressed in simple sentences.
He was described by Geoff Johns in an interview with Wizard as "the most sadistic and malicious" of the Red Lanterns. Originally intended as a joke by Shane Davis, he began being featured more prominently due to positive reception. Dex-Starr frequently travels with Atrocitus, with his vengeful quest centering on finding the burglar that murdered his owner.
You go Dex-Starr. You’re a good kitty.
Does anyone else smell chopped onions in here? Or is it just me… (I’m not crying. YOURE crying.)
