Star Boy (Thom Kallor) is a member of the Legion of Super-Heroes. His superhuman power which he was born with was the ability to temporarily increase the mass of an object, up to the mass of a star. His home planet is Xanthu, he was born on an orbiting floating observertory to astronomer parents He originally gained Kryptonian level powers like those of Superboy when he was caught in the tail of a comet, but in time those faded leaving only his original density power. He was expelled from the Legion for killing in self defence a former boyfriend of his girlfriend Dream Girl, Kenz Nahor, thus breaking the Legion's non killing rule. After this he was a member, with Dream Girl of the Legion of Substitute Heroes for a time until he and Dream Girl rejoined the Legion. Star Boy originally wore a purple uniform with a yellow cape and a five-pointed yellow star on his chest, but his best known costume was a full-body starfield suit.
Post-Zero Hour, he is still a Legion member, but has discovered that his apparent destiny is to travel back in time to the 21st Century to take up the role of Starman
StarBoy could once neutralize his weight-increasing rays to restore objects to their normal mass, but after his power was neutralized by Starfinger, his ability to cancel his power never returned (AD 335).
StarBoy's mass-power is tied into his physical self; once, when his power was neutralized, he fell into a coma and had to be orbited close to a giant star for treatment.
StarBoy was forced to kill the man in self-defense, and to protect Dream Girl from the rogue's jealous rage.
