History: (Marvel Comics Presents I#22/4 (fb) - BTS) - Aalbort had served as the accountant aboard the starship Principle of Reasonable Interest for nearly 150 years. During that time, he has encountered space pirates, freelance tax-gatherers, and taken trips to other planets, galaxies, and dimensions.

(Marvel Comics Presents I#22/4) - Recently he was part of a standard trip from Allamagoosa to Offog, when somebody snuck a Dimensional Randomizer into the hold by listing it as "Robot Parts." Under unknown circumstances, the hold exploded, activating the randomizer, which opened a portal to another dimension. Through this portal, the warlord Azunbulxibar and his troops poured, slaughtering the crew. Aalbort took up an anti-matter gun to help defend the ship. The ship's captain, the last other survivor, managed to force the invaders into a hull meteor shield, temporarily trapping them, at the cost of his own life.

It was at this point that the Eternal of Titan, Eros, also known as Starfox, and his companion, Heater Delight, encountered the ship and Aalbort. Eros was successful in duping the bellicose Azunbulxibar and his troops into returning to their own dimension.

Aalbort's activites since this time are unrevealed.
