BIOGRAPHY: Garlan from planet Styxane was chosen by the awesomne cosmic entities known as the Towers to be one of the Monitors of their Star Bridges, a network of hyperspatial tunnels making intergalactic exchanges possible. In circumstances yet to be revealed, Starlock betrayed the Towers and was condemned by them to have his life essence locked for eternity inside a space capsule abandoned on lifeless Mars. Starkock was inadvertently freed by astronaut Nick Thaler, whose consciousness died when the alien inadvertently took over his body. Back on Earth, Thaler began to mysteriously transform back into a powerful hybrid form, and was pursued first by American, then Russian forces. He was eventually captured by the Tarantula, who tried to make him her slave, but only succeeded in causing him to revert to his former form. Freed by CLASH and fellow astronaut Max "Tornado" Worth, Starlock then reciprocated by helping CLASH when old cosmic ally Homicron lost the control of his energies and threatened Earth. Thanks to Homicron, Starlock has now allied himself with the mysterious team known as Strangers. Starlock now lives in exile on Earth, hoping that the Towers will not notice his escape.
