Openly gay?[edit]

I don't think that Starman III can be described as "openly gay". He addressed that issue in the 1990 Starman series; his choice of partners his natural for his species. Drawing conclusions towards his choice would be the same as drawing like conclusions about dolphins.

Well, he isn't described as "openly gay", just "openly in a gay relationship", which is perfectly true. J•A•K 22:12, 26 September 2006 (UTC)
Of course, many Humans in openly gay relationships say that their choice of partners is perfectly natural for them, too. However, it seems reasonable to accept "sexual relationship between two humans of the same gender" as the definition of "gay relationship." Mikaal Tomas belongs to a species with a different reproductive pattern and so the concept "gay" does not apply to him (so, if he had a girlfriend, as he was portrayed as doing sometimes, he would not be described as "openly in a heterosexual relationship"). Nonetheless, it appears that, whatever gender Mikaal is, he resembles a human male aesthetically and physiologically to a sufficient degree that he can attract gay human males and engage in a relationship with them, and that he and they can derive quite a bit of pleasure from this whole business. Mikaal may not be gay, but Tony, as far as I ever understood, IS. Perhaps "openly in a relationship with a gay human male" would be most clear.

It has since been clarified in Starman/Congorilla #1 that Mikaal identifies himself as gay, so gay it is. It's possible his species has a fluid sexuality or something like that, which would account for his earlier interest in women. ForrestMoss (talk) 07:40, 12 December, 2014 (UTC)

That guy look like Captain Universe

Old West Starman's last name[edit]

The article states that no last name has been revealed but in the very issue the article discusses Johna Hex introduces him as "Victor Sono, AKA Star Man". Page 21 of the comic Jonah Hex volume 2 issue 27. I'm fixing it but have no idea how to properly add a citation to an issue of a comic book. --Redwulf25 ci (talk) 21:19, 28 May 2010 (UTC)

Chronology of name usage[edit]

It says early on that all users of the moniker are being listed chronologically, but then Jonah's guy is listed after Farris Knight of the 853rd Century. Victor Sono really ought to be put ahead Theodore Henry Knight (a certain silver-haired actor prevents me from calling the "mystery man" Ted). — Preceding unsigned comment added by 75.40.136.79 (talk) 20:15, 11 September 2011 (UTC)

Chronology here is based on when the stories were published, not when they are set. - J Greb (talk) 00:29, 12 September 2011 (UTC)

Is a citation really needed?[edit]

There's a "citation needed" tag in the section on Starman of 1951. It says right in the text that the story was published in Detective Comics #247 (September 1957). Is an additional citation really needed? WaxTadpole (talk) 14:10, 1 September 2015 (UTC)
