A scientist on the planet Aoran dedicated himself to cheating death by drawing power from the stars themselves. He invented the "starband", which made him immortal, but twisted his mind towards evil and prematurely aged his fellow Aurians. The people of Aoran wanted him to destroy the starband, but having tasted immortality, he refused to give it up. The ensuing battle left all of Aoran lifeless except for the scientist, now known as Evil Star. Evil Star sought new worlds to conquer and came into frequent conflict with the Guardians of the Universe and the Green Lanterns, including Hal Jordan.
The Guardians later sent Evil Star to the Erral Rehab Facility, where they used a brain wave "nullifier" in an attempt to cure him. This rehabilitation was only partially successful, as the "nullifier" stimulated his subconscious, recreating the Starlings, who brought him the Star Brand. Evil Star fled to Earth in a confused state, believing the Starlings were persecuting him. He fought with Ferrin Colos, one of the Darkstars, who flooded Star's mind with reminders of the lives he had taken, starting with his home world. Evil Star's mind shut down, and he was returned to the Guardians for re-education.
