From interdimensional gladiator to detective to bounty hunter to Queens landlord, Shatterstar has seen it all. Of course, his semi-quiet life as a landlord only lasted so long. When his tenants were trafficked by the mercenary Death Sponsors, he sharpened his sabers to go after them, enlisting Rictor’s help. At the start of Shatterstar #3, he’s on Horus IV, alone, the last man standing between his tenants and certain death.
