Villain Overview

I find one who hurt you. I kill. I good kitty.
~ Dex-Starr
Sadists. I hear the screams of your victims.
~ Dex-Starr

Dex-Starr (real name: Dexter) is a villain in Final Crisis: Rage of the Red Lanterns #1. He was an abused kitten at a local animal shelter. He now serves as the pet and feline companion of Atrocitus.


Dex-Starr was a special cat on birth due to his blue fur. He was sad and scared, until one day a kind woman adopted him who gave him a home, food, and toys. However, things changed when a man broke into their apartment. 

Desperately, Dexter scratched the intruder as hard as he could, but he was a young kitty and sadly, the woman died that night. A few days later, the police kicked Dexter out of his apartment.

Now, Dexter was alone in the streets, sad, until two kids decided to put him in a bag and throw him out of the Brooklyn Bridge. Then a red ring came to him, and he was recruited into the Red Lantern Corps.

However, he did not go on a rampage like other beginning Red Lanterns, and instead, he went back to his apartment and curled up into a ball next to the one who cared for him and simply said: "I find one who hurt you, I kill, I good kitty.".
