Warstar is a fictional character in the Marvel Universe.
Fictional character biography
Warstar is a member of the Shi'ar Imperial Guard
. Warstar is actually two symbiotically linked aliens, a small one named B'nee who can generate electricity and a large one named C’cil who is gigantic and immensely strong and durable. B'nee rides on C'cil's back. Both appear to have metallic hides or to be wearing body armor.
Warstar was a traitor who served Lord Samedar, Deathbird, and the Brood in their conspiracy to overthrow Shi'ar Princess-Majestrix Lilandra.
They were discharged and sent to Earth, which had been turned into an intergalactic prison in the Maximum Security crossover in 2000.
Warstar and Neutron seemed to be pardonned for their actions and were both later seen among the Imperial Guard again. However, Hussar and Webwing have not yet been seen again.
Warstar was ripped in half when the Guard fought for their new emperor Vulcan against the X-Men and Starjammers, but Warstar survived and were carried away by their fellow Guardsmen.
Beany and Cecil
They are named for the puppets Beany and Cecil
. In West Coast Avengers
#80 (part two of Operation: Galactic Storm
), Iron Man
sarcastically asks if they come from a moon called "Leakin' Luna", referring to the Leakin' Lena
in the Beany and Cecil series.
In other media
In the X-Men Animated Series
, Warstar appears in The Phoenix Saga
and The Dark Phoenix Saga
alongside the rest of the Imperial Guard.
In Marvel: Ultimate Alliance, Warstar appears on the Shi'ar warship and fights the heroes alongside Starbolt. A simulation disk has Wolverine trying to prevent Warstar from blowing up the S.H.I.E.L.D. Omega base.
Several of the members of the Imperial Guard are at least partly based on members of the DC Comics
team Legion of Super-Heroes
. (Dave Cockrum, co-creator of the Guard, also had a long run as artist on the Legion.) While Warstar does not seem to have a true analogue in the LSH, he may be inspired by LSH member Duo Damsel
, who could split herself in two.
