Holy ... Rosario Dawson! The actress is packing a punch as the star of her own comic book series, crimefighter Sophia Oritz, in O.C.T.: Occult Crimes Taskforce. Dawson, who took graphic roles to the big screen in 2001's Josie and the Pussycats and last year's Sin City, co-created the storyline and worked with her uncle, artist Gus Vazquez, on the project. PEOPLE caught up with the 29-year-old actress, who stars next in Clerks II, and got the superhero scoop on her wish list of special powers and which strongman her boyfriend Jason Lewis is most like.

Newlywed Christina Aguilera says recording her new double-CD Back to Basics (due Aug. 15) was like "having twins." So we had to ask: Are there any plans for kids in her and music-producer husband Jordan Bratman's future? "Maybe after the next couple of years we'll start venturing into the mind frame of starting our family," she told us at Entertainment Weekly's Must List party at New York City's Buddha Bar. "But I have goals and a set game plan for myself. I have to get through delivering these two babies first." And how does she feel about Bratman after seven months of marriage? Call it freshman-year bliss: "He's my best friend, my backbone and my support system," says Aguilera.

ENDED: His voice slightly hoarse, Dan Rather, 73, was all business for the first 20 minutes of Wednesday's broadcast – his final appearance after 24 years – on CBS Evening News. Then he recalled what he called the most important story of his career – the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks. He opened the news that evening by saying, "You will remember this day as long as you live." He thanked viewers at the end of Wednesday's newscast, then mentioned Sept. 11 survivors, tsunami survivors, the American military, the oppressed, the sick and fellow journalists in dangerous places. "And, to each of you," he said, "courage." Bob Schieffer, Rather's temporary replacement, will sit at the anchor desk as of Thursday. CBS expects to name a permanent anchor team to succeed Rather in the coming months.

With news of the Brad Pitt-Jennifer Aniston split rocking Hollywood, we thought it would be a good moment to check in on some star relationships that are going well. Carmen Electra recently shared some of the details of her romantic holiday getaway with rocker-husband Dave Navarro. "We went to Santa Barbara to Bacara (Resort and Spa)," she revealed at the Volkswagen 2005 Jetta launch party at L.A. club The Lot. "It was supposed to be our honeymoon but it rained the whole time. So we're going to plan to go to an island, maybe go to Hawaii or something. But it was beautiful. It just rained. So we had a lot of spa time. We did a lot of treatments and massage and stuff like that. I love to get massaged. Dave's the opposite because he doesn't like to be touched. He was really bored but I had a great time. We didn't go anywhere. We watched movies and we stayed in the room. It was very romantic."

Dennis Quaid sure knows how to party. Instead of just throwing a golf tournament for charity in Austin, he made a weekend of it, with a fashion show featuring Hugo Boss designs, a "Starry, Starry Night" party and auction and three days of golf at the Avery Ranch Golf Club. Among those who showed up for the various events (benefiting the Austin Children's Shelter, Austin-based Any Baby Can, the Children's Medical Center of Central Texas and The International Hospital for Children): Keanu Reeves, Greg Kinnear, Stephen Dorff (who will appear in the fall in Alone in the Dark with Tara Reid), 24's Carlos Bernard and Alias's Carl Lumbly. Of course, what we really wanted to know was, when's the newly engaged Quaid getting hitched (to bank exec Kim Buffington)? "C'mon now, even if I knew the date, do you really think I'd tell you guys?" said the Day After Tomorrow star, flashing us his signature mischievous grin. Well, yeah, we did. Stay tuned ...

We asked Rosario Dawson for her quick takes on a few hot topics: South Beach Diet: "Parasites in Mexico" Gambling: "Poker" Fear Factor: "Eating bugs" How much would they have to pay you to eat a bug? "I remember seeing someone swimming in leeches, and I would never do it." How much would they have to pay you to go on the show? "They wouldn't have to pay me, they'd have to pay for the building I'm trying to build for girls on the Lower East Side (of Manhattan). I'm trying to do a girls club downtown and we need $6 million. I'm from the Lower East Side – they had boys clubs but no girls clubs. It's going to be great for the neighborhood. I wish I had something like that." Summer Olympics in Athens: "Oh my God! Greece, baby. 2012 Olympics in NYC. I hope I'm here for that and don't miss it." Look for Dawson in Alexander, due in the fall.
