Fictional character biography
Pulsar is a long-time member of the Shi'ar Imperial Guard, also known as Impulse. He is made of pure energy, and his form is only contained by his costume. He can release blasts of energy from his visor.
He was with the Imperial Guard the first time they fought the X-Men.[volume & issue needed]
He was seemingly killed by Vulcan, who breached Impulse's suit.[volume & issue needed] Pulsar later reappeared alive, battling alongside the rest of the Imperial Guard in an assault on the Kree, where Pulsar gravely wounded the Inhuman elite warrior, Gorgon.
Several of the members of the Imperial Guard are at least partly based on members of the DC Comics team Legion of Super-Heroes. (Dave Cockrum, co-creator of the Guard, also had a long run as artist on the Legion.) Pulsar is based on LSH member Wildfire.
