It's starting to look like I am! I've been thinking about her a lot lately, ever since I featured her prominently in the Inktober/Beeftober challenge. Because of those drawings, I started to think about developing her a bit more (okay, a lot more), and "graduating" her to Active Character (joining Tetsuko, Satin Steele, Dyna the Damsel Dynamo and Charlotte the Voluptuous Avenger in those exalted ranks). I noticed the other day that, not only have I been developing and refining a format for an ongoing comics series about her (with input from a fellow DA member, and some inspirations from a couple of others), but most of the drawings I've finished since the Inktober challenge ended feature Starburst, including an animation and two sample comics pages. (The only thing I've done in that time that wasn't Starburst is the new page of Kaijuu Fighter Tetsuko I posted for my Patreon sponsors.) ...and now I'm getting ready to post a new illustration. You'll see it featured on my profile page

It started with this comment from @brad328 on "Starburst cover mockup Version 3: Sleeves": You could also tie all her abilities into something along the lines of her body being a cosmic energy battery and any of her abilities (strength, flight, durability, energy blasts) use some of that battery but some things (absorbing the force of a beam that could level a building, using her blasts, lifting something abnormally heavy or awkward...let's say an airplane) would tax it quicker. It could even be illustrated on her costume. The sparkle effect on her leotard could dim as her power levels decreased. This is a fascinating idea: Starburst's body being a "cosmic battery". So I ran with it! I postulate that Starburst's abilities are powered by cosmic rays that she can absorb from the atmosphere. When she's at "full charge", her powers are almost god(dess)-like. But the longer she uses them, the lower her "charge" becomes; and when she reaches, say, 20% power* left, she weakens, her

Hey thanks for the like bro

I noticed something interesting Dave.

Competitor Tetsuko

Remember this pic that my friend Ducklover4072 did for you of your OC Tetsuko? Well I requested that to him


Glad you love it.

Mr. Matthews, I have to credit one of your early drawings of Satin Steele sitting on a column for sparking my interest in muscular women.


I hadn't seen anything like it before so you had more influence than perhaps you realized at the time. Thank you!

I was wondering: What's the back story on Starburst? Also, who do you think is the strongest? Starburst? Dyna, The Damsel Dynamo? Or Tetsuko?

I'm still refining Starburst's origin, and hope to begin illustrating it soon. (So I don't want to give anything away.)


Starburst is the strongest (except for Dyna at Level 3, and only for the three hours before Dyna has to cycle back down). Then Dyna, then Tetsuko.

See my comment above. I hope you're making Starburst's origin considerably different from Kal-El's and not just a female copy of him. The only similarity between them should be thier powers and the fact they're both heroes. Everything else should be different.
