Starman was a DC character who debuted in his own series in the 1980s, created by Roger Stern and Tom Lyle. How and why Gru utilized him for this one-panel cameo is not known, nor is how Starman came to reside temporarily in the Earth-616 reality. For the sake of this profile, only his 616 history is discussed. His DC adventures will be left for whoever decides to create a DC counterpart to the Appendix.
