(Starjammers I#1 (fb) - BTS) - All life on Verdant Spring's surface was exterminated by the Uncreated, leaving Ardent Spring covered in flames reaching high into the atmosphere;
    Verdant Spring was the third such world to be destroyed by the Uncreated.

To clarify on the main image, the framing technology is part of the Shi'ar ship from which the destroyed planet was viewed. The fireball is pretty much what is left of the planet.
