I'm pretty sure that's not the actual definition of détente, 007

DC keeps trying to make the point that the All-New All-Different New 52 Starfire is comically ignorant of Earth's customs and all those familiar narrative clichès so celebrated by the TV Tropes webpage — but on the other hand, it's absolutely clear Kori's been watching James Bond movies.

Panels from Starfire (2015 series) #7 (February 2016), script by Amanda Conner and Jimmy Palmiotti, pencils by Emanuela Luppachino, pencil assists by Mirco Pierfederici, inks by Ray McCarthy and Sean Parsons, colors by Hi-Fi, letters by Tom Napalitano

To be precise, she's apparently caught, and sat enraptured through, 1981's Roger Moore showcase For Your Eyes Only.

(Here's the comic book version. Not quite word-for-word, is it?)

Panels from James Bond: For Your Eyes Only #2 (November 1981), script by Larry Hama, pencils by Howard Chaykin, inks by Vince Colletta, colors by Christie Scheele, letters by Jean Simek

Which only goes to prove: Princess Koriand'r may look like a Bond girl, but she's as smart as Daniel Craig. Or at least George Lazenby.

Play us off, Sheena Easton!
