Starhawk can generate luminous energy for various purposes. He can surround his body with in a nimbus of light providing simple illumination up to blinding intensity. He can cast beams of light as spotlights of flares. By shifting his light beam's frequency, he can generate intense heat beams, or coherent light beams that strike their targets with tremendous concussive force. He uses a nimbus of intermingled photons and anti-gravitons to levitate or fly at great speeds.

Though best known as a 31st century hero in the alternate reality Earth-691 timeline, the enigmatic, space-faring Starhawk originated a millennium earlier. His power was granted to him by the Hawk God of Arcturus. He was a vastly powerful cosmic being embodying the predatory nature of existence. The Hawk God's influence and actions were often destructive, but they fulfilled a greater universal purpose. His fellow cosmic beings felt that he was power-crazed, excessively violent and gratuitously cruel. The cosmic being known as Eternity brought charges against the Hawk God for causing the near-total extinction of the Watchers. The Hawk God was tried before the council of cosmic equals and the Living Tribunal performed the position of judge. The Hawk God was prosecuted by the last surviving Watcher, Ulig, and defended by the world devourer Galactus who sympathized with the Hawk God's predatory nature.

The Living Tribunal declared the Hawk God dangerous, partly because he was thought to be a likely instigator of the long-prophesied reality-threatening War of the Cosmic Beings. The Hawk God was sent back to the planet Arcturus IV, around Earth's early 20th Century. He was among the gods worshiped by the early Arturians, and they constructed a 30' robotic computer in his likeness. Upon his demotion, the Hawk God was trapped in this immense replica, in an inactive state.

The humanoid Arcturian race is presumed to be violent and unstable, this trait is thought to be a side effect of the constant daylight, due to the planet having twin suns. They measure their lifespans in centuries instead of years. The Arcturians also practice genetic engineering. This practice ended in a planet-wide nuclear war.

Starhawk recently returned, changed to a female form and later sacrificed his life to save the current Guardians team.
