Shatterstar is a fictional character in the Marvel Universe.

Publication history[edit]

Shatterstar first appeared in Inhumans #3-6 (February-August 1976), and was created by Doug Moench and George Pérez. The character subsequently appears in Captain Marvel #53 (November 1977), and Avengers #383 (February 1995).

Fictional character biography[edit]

Shatterstar was a Kree "super-soldier" prototype who could fly and project destructive energy beams from his wrist devices.

Shatterstar (Arides) was sent to Earth as part of a plant to capture the Inhumans for military use. The Inhuman Royal Family fought Shatterstar, but discovered that his powers made him more than a match for them. Black Bolt used the weaponry aboard Shatterstar's own ship to blast him into unconsciousness and take him back to Attilan. Attilan had been taken over by Maximus the Mad and his allies, and when Shatterstar revived he joined forces with Maximus. Triton goaded Shatterstar into following him into the Corridor of Memories, and tricked him into firing at a reflection of Triton in the Mirror of Eternity. The blast reflected back at Shatterstar and apparently obliterated him.[1]

Much later, after Attilan had been moved to the Blue Area of the Moon, Shatterstar revived himself and emerged to the surface. He went to Avengers Mansion in search of Inhumans to abduct for his original mission. He found Crystal and abducted her back to his Himalayan lair. Arides tried to contact the Kree, but could not due to their subjugation by the Shi'ar after the Kree-Shi'ar War. The Avengers and Fantastic Force found him and fought him, and Deathcry managed to convince him that the Kree were indeed ruled by the Shi'ar now. The Vision informed Arides that he was now an energy being and not truly alive, so Arides fled back to Hala to seek answers.[2]
