When Mikaal Tomas is accused of treason, he is mistakenly set free instead of being executed. Finding himself in the Bronx, Mikaal is disoriented and is attacked by a street gang, which he easily defeats. Finding help in a kindly couple, Mikaal mistakes their gestures and leaves them, only to be hunted down by his would-be executioner, Turran Kha!
This is the only appearance of Starman (III - Mikaal Tomas) until he began his recurring role in Starman (1994). The occurances between this issue and his next appearance in Starman (1994) would be told in flashbacks within that series.
