Blackfire is a recurring character in the first generation of the DC Super Hero Girls franchise. She is a student at Korugar Academy and Starfire and the long-lost crown prince Darkfire's older sister. Her real name is Crown Princess Komand’r.
Blackfire has long flowing blackish purple hair, orange skin and violet eyes. She wears a black crop top and a black matching mini skirt with a sliver belt. She also wears metallic armor that covers her arms, legs, and stomach and wears metallic elbow-length finger-less gloves and black knee-high boots. She wears purple eyeshadow and has purple lips .
Blackfire's personality is the complete opposite of her sister's: rude, antisocial, vain, bossy, disrespectful and condescending. She thinks that her sister is always trying to make her look foolish and outdo her when the opposite is true. She rarely likes working alongside her sister, or any other superhero for that matter, but on occasion she shows that her heart is not as black as her hair.
As an extraterrestrial being of the planet Tamaran, Komand'r possesses the following abilities:
- Superhuman Condition-
- Superhuman Strength
- Superhuman Agility
- Superhuman Durability
- Superhuman Stamina
- Superhuman Endurance
- Longevity- Like all Tamaranians, Blackfire can live for hundreds of years, without aging.
- Faster-than-Light Flight- An ability she lacks her original comic version due to being stricken with a rare condition as a child.
Experiments by Gordianian Scientists
Ultraviolet Energy Projection- Due to being forced to absorb vast amounts of ultraviolet energy into herself, Blackfire can generate powerful circular bolts of purple ultraviolet energy from her hands and, eventually, her eyes.
Blackfire is voiced by Hynden Walch in the English version of the cartoon, who also voices Starfire.
In the film Intergalactic Games, she appears as a member of the Korugar Academy team at the Intergalactic Games, where she holds a bet with Starfire, that if Super Hero High were to lose, Starfire would transfer to Korugar and if she were to lose, she'd spend a day of "fun-ship" with Starfire. Throughout the film, she expresses disdain with how Starfire wastes her powers to help mortals, and how Super Hero High allows non-supers like Batgirl. She participates in the aerial obstacle course against Wonder Woman and Lashina. She loses the event when Lashina knocks her into a wall by the latter, and the race is won by Wonder Woman. She subsequently competes in the partner biathalon event of the games with Bleez against Supergirl and Starfire, winning the event when their competition abandon the event to save people from a burning building. She also competes in the final event of the games, the Heroball event, and disobeys headmaster Sinestro's orders to return to Korugar when the event is preempted by Lena Luthor's attack with her Kryptomite army and helps her sister, alongside the rest of Super Hero High students to defeat her, before defeating Brainiac's subsequent attack. She agrees to stay on Earth for a few days for the Day of Fun-Ship, although she bemoans that she will receive significant detention upon returning to Korugar.
In "Day of Fun-Ship", she spends the day of "fun-ship" with Starfire, and reluctantly engages in many human activities such as flying a kite, and having ice spilled on her head by her sister upon being the first to experience brain freeze while eating ice cream. When they go to the zoo, she works with Starfire to battle King Shark, eventually defeating him by wrapping him with a garland while singing a Tamaranean nursey rhyme. As she head back to Korugar via the Boom Tubes, they agree to see each other again on Tamaranean Sovereignty Day and Blackfire admits to having fun before hugging her sister.
In "Ring Me Maybe Part 2", Starfire hopes that Blackfire has returned upon seeing Sinestro's ship arrives on Earth. Sinestro responds that she will be see her soon enough as he kidnaps her and other Super Hero High students to be part of his dream team in retaliation for losing the Intergalactic Games. Starfire and her classmates are eventually freed by Batgirl and Sinestro is defeated by Jessica Cruz.
In "Tamaranean Dance Club Part 1", Blackfire and other Korugar students are invited to a Tamaranean dance at Super Hero High School. Upon arriving, she attacks Starfire, as "dance" is Tamaranean for domination battle, much to the confusion of the other students who were expecting a conventional dance.
In "Tamaranean Dance Club Part 2", Starfire returns ultraviolet green fire, and the battle begins between the Korugar students and the Super Hero High students, with Blackfire mostly battling Starfire. She and the Korugar students are defeated when they are taken all down at once, as Wonder Woman calls out dance moves from a microphone and subsequently captures them in her Lasso of Truth.
In "Target Practice", Blackfire is mentioned in Starfire's opening narration in the form of a letter to her, as she describes to her the human activity of throwing frisbees, which describes as an activity particularly "strange to Tamaraneans". In her ending narration, she hopes Blackfire can someday join her in Earth activities. In The first part of Fortress of Solidarity, Blackfire makes a cameo appearance skating around the tree with Starfire at the Super Hero High winter holiday tree ceremony, and watches as Trigon emerges from a lava pool under the ice and lights the tree on fire. They later stand together as Starfire holds a present and they subsequently watch as Principal Waller lights the tree.
In Summer Olympus, Blackfire appears in a throwback picture with Starfire posted by her sister appearing on Harley Quinn's phone, with Thunder and Lightning agreeing that she looks just like Starfire.
- This version of Blackfire, surprisingly, seems to be more of a friendly rival to Starfire than the archenemy she is in the comics and the Teen Titans franchise. They actually got along when they were younger.
- She speaks English better than her sister.
- She now has orange skin like other members of her race, rather than pale yellow like most of her depictions.
