Who's Who in the Superman Comics

Starbreaker

A true cosmic vampire, Starbreaker resembles the legendary Count Dracula, except that he possesses advanced psionic and telekinetic powers, which he uses to drain the essences of planets and galaxies. Coming to Earth, he tried to destroy not just the planet, but our entire solar system! He was met with fierce opposition by The Justice League of America, and despite their efforts, he defeated them. A third party, Sargon the Sorcerer, proved extremely pivotal in turning the tide. He revealed to the JLA that the most powerful weapon to beat Starbreaker was his mystical Ruby of Life. An ancient orb he kept in his turban, Sargon's very powers came from the magic gem.

He revealed to the League that the ruby had two other portions, which united with his own, would create the weapon to defeat Starbreaker. Therefore, he sent JLA members around the world, and the team procured the necessary artifacts, thereby allowing Sargon to help them defeat Starbreaker. The final blow came when an enraged Superman regained his powers, and knocked Starbreaker senseless. Once detained by the JLA, Starbreaker was imprisoned in a cosmic barrier, and kept unconscious thanks to Sargon's magic spells. (This confrontation occurred in Justice League of America #97-98)

First Appearance: Justice League of America (1st series) #97
