WARNING: Contains Potential Spoilers for Titans #11!

Teen Titans fans will regret it if they miss this amazing reference to the beloved show featured on Starfire’s latest outfit. This subtle yet perfect callback would make an ideal addition to DC’s merch store. But this new outfit isn’t the only Starfire-inspired item DC should consider making available to fans.

Titans #11 by Tom Taylor and Lucas Meyer sees Nightwing and his team attacked by their newest adversary, Vanadia, an AMAZO-like cyborg possessing all of the Titans’ powers. Programmed by Dr. Morrow and Amanda Waller to believe the Titans are robots that must be destroyed, Vanadia strikes in the middle of the night, forcing the team to fight in their pajamas.

Starfire’s pajamas are particularly notable, featuring a blink-and-you-miss-it reference to the Teen Titans cartoon. On the breast pocket area of her purple zip-up hoodie is the Teen Titans Go! version of Silkie, Starfire’s pet moth larva.

Starfire’s New Purple Pajamas Pay Tribute to Her Pet Worm in Teen Titans GO!

Fans of the animated shows Teen Titans and Teen Titans Go! are well acquainted with Starfire’s beloved pet, Silkie. Silkie was originally one of the thousands of mutant caterpillars created by Killer Moth. However, after a confrontation with the grubs, Beast Boy brought one back to the Tower and asked Starfire to help keep the little larva hidden from their teammates. Although initially hesitant, Starfire quickly became attached to Silkie, and soon the little grub became closely associated with her character.

Unfortunately, Silkie doesn’t quite fit the narrative tone of most comics featuring Starfire and her fellow Titans. However, Taylor and Meyer brilliantly found a way to sneak the little grub into the storyline. Alongside the Silkie reference, Starfire’s pajama set is exceptionally cute and comfy-looking, undoubtedly appealing to many fans. If DC were smart, they would capitalize on the hype surrounding this issue and add Starfire’s Silkie-inspired pajamas to the DC Shop. It’s a shame that DC doesn’t offer more subtle, everyday wear like this, but now is the perfect time to remedy that oversight.
