History:abrogate-691-gotg61-quasar

(Guardians of the Galaxy I#61 (fb)) - Secretly manipulating events to ensure the successful Martian conquest of Earth-691 in the 21st century, Era (who had slain and was impersonating his own father, the cosmic entity Eon) misdirected the Protector of the Universe Quasar (Wendell Vaughn) into materializing near the Abrogate. 

    Considering Quasar's sudden appearance an assault, the Abrogate instantly retaliated, overwhelming and slaying Quasar.

(Guardians of the Galaxy I#61 (fb) - BTS) - Like other Protectors of the Universe, Quasar revived in the White Room, which he could not leave.

(Guardians of the Galaxy I#60 - BTS) - Having claimed the Quantum Bands, Starhawk sought information on his father, Quasar (Wendell Vaughn), and he saw an image of a gravesite on the outer fringe of the galaxy, with a gravestone noting that Quasar had died at the Abrogate.

    Despite his knowledge of the Abrogate's nature and his own nature as "The-One-Who-Knows," Starhawk found he did not know the Abrogate's location. Era (sill posing as Eon) advised Starhawk that as he had not been chosen to wear the bands as Protector of the Universe, his cognizance was being corrupted and that he should surrender them at once. 

    Starhawk refused, but ultimately the Keeper (Silver Surfer/Norrin Radd), the Quantum Bands' previous possessor reclaimed them. Following a subsequent encounter with the Hawk God in Quantum Space, Starhawk returned to normal space, correctly appreciating that Keeper had sent him to the Galactic Hub, which he assumed to be the Abrogate.

(Guardians of the Galaxy I#60) - Swirling energies then congealed into the form of the Abrogate, which corrected Starhawk that it was not merely a place but rather a living being, the sentient confluence where energy intersects anti-energy and all is devoured. 

    Seeking to punish the Abrogate for his father's death, Starhawk fired an energy blast at the Abrogate, who denounced him as a primitive imbecile and noted that he solicited death by ergonomic dispensation. 

    The Abrogate then explained that it could not be harmed but only stimulated into an irreversible reaction: Starhawk's energies would invert, transposing themselves into pure negativity, which must be disseminated. By daring to disturb the delicate balance, Starhawk's essence would be invalidated. abrogate-691-gotg60-absorb-starlord

    The energies caused Starhawk's cellular structure to collapse on itself and his very soul evaporated as his withered husk was absorbed into the Abrogate. 

(Guardians of the Galaxy I#61 - BTS) - Having worn the Quantum Bands, Starhawk awakened in the White Room, where he met Quasar. However, as he derived his power from other sources than the Quantum Bands, Starhawk was not imprisoned there. 

    Although Quasar refused to leave, Starhawk eventually departed and returned to life in the physical universe.
