Starstriker was born at the same time that Captain Comet was. However, he was not exposed to the same overflying comet that activated Captain Comet's meta-gene. Because he felt robbed of the powers fate was supposed to endow upon him, he devised a way to expose himself to the comet while incapacitating Captain Comet and a weakened Superman. After he triggered his own mutant meta-gene, he used his mental powers (which were comparable to those of a man 100,000 years into humanity's future) to make Superman forget how to use his powers granted him by Earth's yellow sun. Starstriker captured both Superman and Captain Comet after their initial battle and planned to drain their energy for his own reserves. However, he was soon overpowered by both superheroes after Captain Comet used his own mental force to make Starstriker's new-found powers unbalanced; turning him into a human comet if he ever decides to use them. He was taken into custody shortly after, unable to use his powers lest he becomes unstable.
