Stardust possessed a large degree of energy manipulative powers. It was composed of energy and did not have human limitations. It could travel through space unaided. It could drain the life force from other beings to increase its own power. It possessed some degree of superhuman strength, most likely a result of focusing its energies into kinetic energy. It is bound in "starstuff" bonds, which limit its power. Without the bonds, it is significantly more powerful.
The being that became Stardust was originally an energy being who was part of a collective known as the Body. He was expelled for unmutual acts and bound in bands of "starstuff." He found his way to Earth and discovered two races inhabiting the planet: humans and Dire Wraiths. He first absorbed most of the energy of several children, but found he was able to get more energy by absorbing Wraiths (killing them), so he began seeking them out. As he absorbed the life forces of others, he came to think of himself as a new "Body," replacing the composte life form tat had expelled him. When Rom found him and asked that he return the life force stolen from the children, Stardust attacked him as an enemy. Rom mistakenly shattered the starstuff bonds, thinking them to be the source of Stardust's power. After realizing his mistake, Rom drained Stardust's energy into his own cyborg form, used it to heal the children, and released the villain back into the cosmos with just enough power to survive.
(Quasar#14, , 16) - He was later captured and held captive by the Stranger on his laboratory world. During the Overmind's assault on the Stranger, Stardust was one of the captives who was freed and directed to attack the Stranger and his allies. Stardust attacked Quasar, sensing that he, like Rom, had the power to shatter the starstuff bonds which kept him prisoner. Stardust drained Quasar's energy as they struggled, until Quasar realized what was happening, reversed the flow, and drained Stardust's energy, incapacitating him.
Many of the former captives escaped the Stranger's world after this struggle, although Stardust's fate is unrevealed.
