Real Name: B'nee and C'cil
Search for 'Warstar' on Amazon
Warstar is an alien mechanoid symbiote of two separate beings, the small B'nee and the giant-sized C'cil. The giant C'cil possesses enhanced strength and durability, whilst the diminutive B'nee has the ability to electrically shock an opponent with his touch.
B'nee and C'cil are able to communicate with each other telepathically, as well as sharing an empathic bond wherein if one is injured, the other also feels pain. C'cil relies on B'nee to guide him on combat thanks to his lower than average intelligence. As a result, B'nee is often seen riding in a cavity within C'cil's back.
Both B'nee and C'cil have chitinous exo-skeletons that enhance their resistance to physical injury.
Warstar is a former member of the Imperial Guard, a multi-ethnic group of super-powered alien beings who act as enforcers of the laws of the Shi'ar Empire. Warstar was one of eight Imperial Guardsmen chosen to battle the team of superhuman Earthling mutants known as the X-Men over the fate of Phoenix, a primal force of the cosmos that had assumed the form of the X-Man Jean Grey.
Warstar was later amongst those Imperial Guard members who allied themselves with the treacherous Shi'ar High Council member Lord Samédŕr who was aiding an attempted coup of the Shi'ar throne by Deathbird. Even after the ploy was discovered, Warstar, like most of the other Guard members present, still chose to side with Samédŕr against the X-Men who were defending then-Empress Lilandra.
Much later, during the war between the Shi'ar and Kree Empires, Warstar was amongst an advance team of the Imperial Guard who were dispatched to Earth to discover the whereabouts of the powerful Kree weapon known as the Omni-Wave Projector. During the mission, Warstar clashed with members of the team of super-powered Earth heroes known as the Avengers and the team of intergalactic freebooters known as the Starjammers.
Warstar was also amongst those Imperial Guard members who defended Lilandra against an assassination attempt by the Kree Ronan the Accuser and his unwilling agents, the royal family of the Earth race known as the Inhumans.
Following a meeting of the intergalactic council, Earth was declared a threat to the entire cosmos and consequently it was deemed to turn the planet into an intergalactic prison. Criminals from numerous alien races were teleported to Earth, among them the former Imperial Guard members who had allied themselves with Deathbird and Lord Samédŕr all those years ago, including Warstar. These former Guardsmen had allied themselves with a lone member of the alien D'bari, calling himself Starhammer, who sought revenge on Jean Grey for the crimes of Dark Phoenix.
