In the episode "Rage Cat," Jessica finds Dexter in the animal shelter, where the other employees warn her about his violent behavior. She attempts to find Dexter an adoptive home but Dexter behaves badly and they go from one attempt to the next. After several failed attempts, Jess takes Dexter to a photo shoot. A crowd forms around him, and then his eyes glow red and a red beam from the sky hits him. He levitates, and a red power ring slips onto his tail. He emerges from the glowing red beam and introduces himself as "Dex-Starr of the Red Lantern Corps." He explains that the members of the Red Lantern Corps are the angriest beings in the universe whose power rings are fueled by rage. Dex-Starr attacks Jessica, who transforms into Green Lantern, subdues him, and takes his power ring. The scene fades to white and fades into a shot of Dexter looking sad and Jessica whispering "It's almost time..." The shot zooms out and Jess shouts "FOR DINNER! Well, what do you think, am I the perfect owner or what?" Dexter slaps away his food bowl and the scene cuts to black after Jess says "oh you!"

Dex-Starr appears again in the episode "It's Complicated" having regained his power ring thanks to Jess leaving a chair too close to the counter. He joins Star Sapphire and Sinestro in attacking Jess and Hal, but after Hal apologizes to Star Sapphire and Sinestro, Dex-Starr and joins them in hugging Hal, saying "I love you Hal Jordan, you always taste like steak sauce,” before they flow off to the moon as the best of friends. It's unknown if Jessica Cruz still owns Dex-Starr, following the events of this episode.
