Bio:
The story of the Starjammers began with Christopher Summers, a military pilot returning with his family from a trip to Alaska. Without warning, their plane was attacked. Chris's wife, Katherine, strapped their two sons to their only parachute and pushed them out of the plane, saving their lives. The husband and wife were then teleported from their plane to the ship of an advanced alien race called the Shi'ar. This had been a zoological scouting mission to bring in a human specimen. They were brought before D'Ken, the then ruler of the Shi'ar Empire, who was immediately smitten with Katherine, making her his concubine and sending her husband to the slave pits. Eventually, Corsair escaped and reached D'Ken's private quarters to try to assassinate him. However, he was caught and punished by having his wife murdered before his eyes. His spirit broken, he was sent to a mining camp on another planet.


While working in the mining camp, Christopher witnessed the guards mercilessly beating a feline-like female. He stepped in, trying to get them to stop, but was then beaten himself. The woman was taken to the holding cells and Christopher huddled up in a corner, ashamed of himself. A little while later, Raza and Ch'od passed by and asked Christopher for the whereabouts of their comrade Hepzibah (the cat-like creature). Unfortunately, Chris was too afraid to answer. After they had left, Chris felt guilty and went to the guards' quarters, starting a fight after killing one of them. Surrounded on all sides, Christopher's cause seemed hopeless when Raza and Ch'od jumped in. After getting past the guards, they freed Hepzibah and snuck on board a Shi'ar starship. Naming Christopher their Captain, they became the Starjammers, a group of space pirates rebelling against D'Ken's leadership.


The Starjammers have had many adventures across the universe, many of them on Earth with the X-Men, during which Christopher Summers finally met his long lost sons, now X-Men.


A recent Starjammers series introduced a new member of the Starjammers. Although this series was seemingly out of Marvel Universe continuity, the events of the series were referenced in a recent entry in the Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe series.


The Starjammers later appeared in "Rise and Fall of the Shi'ar Empire" storyline, in which Corsair got killed by his evil son, Vulcan. After the battle, the Starjammers where joined again by Lilandra and several X-Men members. They chose Havok to become their new leader, and Hepzibah got stranded on Earth with the remaining X-Men.
