"Injustice 2" - Enter 'Starfire'

 DC Comics' 'Starfire' from "Injustice 2  is the super-powered female alien, motivated to action by the death of 'Dick Grayson', aka 'Nightwing', showing
off her deadly energy beams, celestial projectiles and a whole lot more:

'Starfire', aka 'Koriand'r, debuted in "DC Comics Presents" #26 (October 1980), created by writer Marv Wolfman and illustrator George Pérez, as an alien 'Tamaranean', with a physiology designed to absorb ultraviolet radiation, that allows her to fly at supersonic speeds. 

This energy also provides her with superhuman strength and durability. She also has the ability to release her absorbed energy into powerful blasts. 

Starfire is also proficient in hand-to-hand combat, trained by the 'Warlords of Okaara'. She also doesn't need to eat, drink, sleep and doesn't require an atmosphere to breathe.

All Tamaraneans assimilate languages through physical contact.

When Starfire attempts to do so with a male...

...she typically does so by kissing because it is "more fun".

" 'Injustice 2', 'Batman' and his insurgency attempt to restore society after the fall of the 'Superman' regime.

"However, arrivals of the super-villain group 'The Society', with the alien 'Brainiac', force Batman to consider freeing the imprisoned Superman to help combat the threats..."

"Injustice 2" developed by NetherRealm Studios and published by Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment is the sequel to 2013's "Injustice: Gods Among Us", released May 2017 for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One...

...introducing the 'Gear System', rewarding players with costume pieces and equipment that can be used to customize  appearances, modify abilities and stats.
