Komand’r ( besides known as Blackfire, the English translation of her Tamaranean name ), is the elder sister of the Teen Titan Starfire.
Komand ‘ radius was born the eldest child of Tamaran ‘s royal family. The first princess born in over a hundred years, she should have been courted and showered with honors. On the day she was born the Citadel Empire attacked and destroyed the western Tamaranean city of Kysarr, killing three thousand citizens in her name. Though she was in no way at defect for what had happened Komand ‘ roentgen was for all meter inextricably linked with that frightful day. To make matters worse, Komand ‘ radius had been stricken with a childhood illness that left her ineffective to harness ultraviolet unaccented to fly as most Tamaraneans did. Komand ‘ roentgen grew up hated by the Tamaran population, who denied her birthright and refused to allow her to be the next Princess of Tamaran. All of her queenly privileges, honors, and celebration were late given to her younger sister, Koriand ‘ gas constant. Komand ‘ gas constant ‘s rage grew inward, and whenever she could, her hate for her planet was focused on her hapless sister. Komand ‘ roentgen ‘s competition continued and intensified when the siblings were sent for battle train with the Warlords of Okaara. Things came to a head during a spar exercise in which Komand ‘ roentgen attempted to kill her sister. As a consequence, she was expelled. Komand ‘ radius swear vengeance and joined the Citadel, cursorily rising through their ranks to becoming a double-crosser against her own people and world. Komand ‘ roentgen former betrayed her planet with detail data about Tamaran ‘s defenses to the the Citadel. They conquered Tamaran with comfort, and the surrender conditions included the enslavement of Koriand ‘ radius. Koriand ‘ radius was besides never permitted to return to Tamaran, since it would mean the Citadel would devastate the planet for Tamaran ‘s abrogation of the treaty .
Komand ‘ roentgen was made her younger sister ‘s ruler and made the most of the bondage with years of hideous servitude and torture. When a ferocious and humiliated Kori killed one of her rapists, Komand ‘ roentgen decided to execute her as punishment, but before getting the chance, the sisters were attacked and captured by the Psions. The Psions, largely a species of sadistic reptile scientists, performed a deadly experiment on both of the sisters to see how much ultraviolet energy their Tamranian bodies could absorb until expiring from the overindulgence. Before the procedure could be completed, Komand ‘ radius ‘s Citadel forces attacked the Psion ship to rescue her. While the Psions were distracted, Kori broke barren with the newly developed starbolts, which were round blasts of brilliantly green-colored ultraviolet energy directed from her hands, which were a result of the Psions ‘ experiments. Against her better sagacity, she decided to free Komand ‘ roentgen, who was absorbing more and more ultraviolet energy. however, far from grateful, Komand ‘ r struck her baby down with the like, much stronger fire of lightly purple-colored ultraviolet energy and had her restrained for later execution. Kori escaped and stole a space embark to escape to planet Earth, where she met a group of five superheroes and helped form the New Teen Titans.

The manque successor to the enthrone went on to work with the same Gordanian slavers who imprisoned and torment her and Starfire as she came of old age.

But not before Forcing the recapture Koriand ‘ roentgen to watch as her Gordania vessal ‘s defenses took apart her rescuers, the Teen Titans sting by bit in an try to save her. While stationed with the bastion, it ‘s distortion technicians wasted no expense in putting her baby through intolerable amounts of anguish while she dined with Lord Damyn, relishing in their get of both her contrary sibling and the Tamaranian goddess X’Hal at the hands of Okaaran Warlords within their ranks. What she did n’t count on was it being a cleaver bunker set by both the Titans and Omegans in decree to infiltrate their base of operations. When the Teen Titans entered into the bastion enthrone board, Komand ‘ radius threatened to unleash the angered and homicidal godess X’Hal upon them all lest they surrendered. When titan ‘s member Cyborg took Damyn as a hostage, the two factions were caught in a mexican draw, one which was expediently broken by the punic Blackfire who summarily killed Lord Damyn herself in orderliness to commandeer his throne and empire. With this change in events Starfire ‘s friends tried their hired hand at appealing to Blackfire in the hopes of going absolve, the latter of who laughed off such negotiations gloating that she soon moved to raze Tamaran to the reason with her newfound armada. In a fit of rage Starfire Attacked her leading to a beastly contend where she well closely overwhelmed her demented attacker. But before the fight could be far escalated however, a Psion employed within the bastion opted rather to mitigate a struggle to the death between the two hateful rivals. Within a hobo camp on their home plate planet of Tamaran, where they fought both for their lives and rulership of the Citadel conglomerate. Using barbarous psychological tactics in order to gain a irregular upper hands, Komand ‘ gas constant promptly found herself outmatched by her younger baby in the contest as it dragged on. Going so far as to break the rules of which in an attempt to murder her chap combatant that much quick. She again found her underhandedness backfire as Starfire took off into a madden trajectory traffic pattern, first smashing hard into the side of a mountain and then taking a nosedive into a nearby waterfall flow. Having had enough of the conflagrations, Komand ‘ gas constant attempts to used her starbolt power again only to be boiled alive in the rapids causing the rocks surrounding it to violently explode. Blackfire was then assumed to be deceased afterwards .
Blackfire had survived about drowning in the falls but was left blinded by the incident, Komand ‘ radius ‘s life was spared when her warrior lieutenant and fan Dor’ion saved her. For many months the two retrained her until she regained her killer whale instinct, readying to resume her crusade for the throne. finally exceeding expectations for her final trial and having regaining her eyesight in the process, at the cost of her mates biography. The death of her beloved and the common beloved they shared finally spurred her back into the way of the conqueror, a drive she both lamented to ‘ve lost after her fatal encounter with her sister and her team, adenine good as cursed due to putting it before all else, even love. finally moving on to incite a civil war on her home planet of Tamaran in an try to usurp her church father, Myand ‘ r ‘s enthrone by inciting rebellion within the populace.

When Vril Dox is kidnapped by Starro, everyone expects Blackfire to seize the here and now to take the planet, but alternatively she demands to be taken to struggle and aid rescue Vril Dox.
Powers and Abilities
- Tamaranean Physiology: Blackfire’s Tamaranian physiology constantly absorbs pure ultraviolet energy and converts it into circular blasts of lilac-colored ultraviolet energy called “blackbolts” which she projects from her hands and, later, her eyes.
- Linguistic Assimilation: As a Tamaranean she is also capable of assimilating other languages through physical contact with another person.
- Energy Absorption: Blackfire can absorb and repossess copious amounts of solar/stellar energy to energize her powers. A new facet she displayed when her abilities were absorbed was leeching off the abilities of her sister to produced lilac nova blasts.
- FTL Flight: After Katar Hol had stripped her of her powers, Komand’r sought out the Psions to restore and further strengthen them; this inadvertently also corrected her childhood illness and gave her the ability to fly faster than light itself, as her younger sister does.
- Interstellar Travel
- Superhuman Durability
- Superhuman Strength
- Prehensile Tongue
- Cold and Heat Immunity
- Blackbolts: Like Starfire, Blackfire can discharge the ultraviolet energy she absorbed, as the results of the experiments on her. She can covert this ultraviolet energy into bright purple, circular blasts called “blackbolts.” She can even shoot this from her eyes as a surprise attack or when her hands are restrained. This is ability is not one of her natural Tamaranian abilities, but one she artificially gained from experiments.
- Power Limitation: Unlike her sister (and most other Tamaraneans), Blackfire was stricken by a childhood illness that robbed her of the ability to fly, though she has compensated for this limitation through scientific means. (Formerly)
