Real Name:
Search for 'Starro (01 - Starfish)' on Amazon

Giant space starfish that can control minds and create giant starfish "deputies" from regular earth starfish. Can asexually produce huge numbers of small duplicates of itself called "spores", which attach to the faces of victims as another method of rendering them under Starro's mental control.

Lime (calcium oxide)
Extreme cold.

Starro has in most continuities been an intelligent alien starfish bent on world domination. His first appearance was the catalyst for the formation of the first Justice League, and later iterations of this team and others have fought the villainous creature on several occasions. Starro has appeared in a few different versions, and not all listed appearances are necessarily the same individual creature.

R.E.B.E.L.S. (2009) Annual #1 retconned Starro as part of a race of such creatures that are all controlled by one humanoid "master" Starro. This character should be used for instances of any Starro other than the humanoid "master" Starro.

First Appearance: The Brave and the Bold (1955) #28
