Flight via natural wings - capable of traveling in excess of light speed; able to track "anything" - her range is substantial but not unlimited.Dawnstar's unique powers include the ability to track life forms and objects across light years of distance and through interstellar space. She can survive in deep space for long periods of time without a spacesuit or oxygen. Dawnstar and other Starhavenites have pairs of large, white-feathered wings that grow out of their upper backs, the result of genetic engineering. In deep space, she can travel at faster-than-light speeds. In an Earth-normal atmosphere or in a sizable gravity well, her speed is diminished. She wears a Legion flight ring to signal for help, for monitoring of her location, and for other non-flight uses.
a member of the Legion of Super-Heroes. Dawnstar is her real name (she has no Legion code name), and she is from Starhaven, a planet colonized from Earth in the 23rd Century. Her name is derived from the planet Venus, the "morning star." This is why Dawnstar wears an eight-pointed star ornament on her forehead.
Dawnstar had a lengthy, tragic romance with fellow Legionnaire Wildfire. They each respected the other's defiant, outspoken personality, although they each counseled each other on working with their talents as part of a team instead of acting as individuals. Wildfire was an anti-energy being in a containment suit, and thus had no physical body. When he briefly was able to partially reverse this, they attempted a physical relationship, but were unsuccessful.
Dawnstar was possessed by an evil entity called Bounty who amputated her wings and forced her to use her tracking powers as an assassin. Dawnstar was later freed from the Bounty entity's control.
After Bounty left Dawnstar, the injured Dawnstar stayed in the Legion's infirmary for a while, and for a while did not respond verbally to any stimulus. She has improved and been returned to Starhaven for further assistance. She has since confronted her traumas and fears, and has met the active Legionnaires on Weber's World, including Wildfire, whose return she's uncertain how to deal with...and the feeling is mutual. In the end this was moot, as she became one of the first disappearance victims of Zero Hour.
