Raven’s subdued “I hate you” expressions are always the best.
Okay, so here’s something I’ve never understood about the Teen Titans episode, ‘Snowblind’
Tamaran is a tropical planet. It’s closer to it’s sun, so it’s a whole lot warmer there. Which is why Tamaranians don’t wear a lot of clothing.
Too much clothing would cause them to overheat
So a Tamaranian’s body is built for hot, tropical weather. It’s built for 90+ degrees
I understand that Starfire wouldn’t have too much difficulty living in Jump(which is probably anywhere between 60-90 at any time of the year)
What I don’t get is how she didn’t immediately freeze to death in Russia, wearing the outfit she normally does
where’s it’s almost constantly below freezing
as a Tamaranian, her body wouldn’t be built to survive in sub-freezing temperature
If she was wearing arctic gear I could understand
but she was in a belly-shirt and short skirt
HOW did she survive getting stuck in a blizzard, and burried under snow?
How did she not even react to the cold temperature?(at least at first)
Actually, it’s 100% canon (comic AND cartoon) that her “people can withstand the hostile conditions of space”. (In the comics she doesn’t even need oxygen. O_o)
My theory: They aren’t built for tropics, they’re just built to be tough BA people that can withstand changes in climate and such. (Not to compare aliens to bugs, but) kind of like insects that are native to tropical temperatures but can go into hibernation when exposed to freezing temperatures, for years, without dying.
(Exact theory: They don’t experience extreme temperatures as painful, bad, or dangerous like our fragile bodies do, because they’re made of tougher stuff and it won’t hurt them. And somehow they don’t need oxygen, nearly as much as humans do anyway. So the physiology has to be TOTALLY different.)
Also, like you mentioned with the other person, she can STORE energy. (Otherwise she wouldn’t be able to use starbolts on a cloudy day, or at night. 8F There’s a difference between a solar “converter” and a solar “battery”. And that difference IS indeed storage~)
