I find one who hurt you. I kill. I good kitty.
~ 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 was a special cat because he was blue. He was sad and scared until one day a kind woman adopted him. She fed him and gave him balls of yarn to play with. She would never hurt him. She gave him a home so he gave her love, but 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 with issues decided to put him in a bag an throw him out of the Brooklyn Bridge. Then a red ring came to him, and he was recruited into the Red Lantern Corps.

But, he did not go on a rampage like other beginning Red Lanterns; 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."



  • He is the only Earth animal Red Lantern to date.
  • He is the only Red Lantern that at the beginning didn't kill everyone he meet,and didn't need the Red lantern blood pool
  • It is unknown if his other 4 brothers are still alive.
  • He is the only red lantern to wear the ring on his tail (because he can't wear on his finger because he's a cat,and his fingers are too thick and small).
