Fictional character biographyEdit
Stardust is an alien from an unnamed planet (in some stories, a star), whose "vast knowledge of interplanetary science has made him the most remarkable man that ever lived." He arrives on Earth vowing to clean up crime, and uses the powers that his knowledge has given him to fight all evil-doers.
Powers and abilitiesEdit
In addition to such powers as super strength, flight, and invulnerability, Stardust's powers included "retarding rays" that slowed down moving objects; thought recording; the "delicate detecting unit" (a combination of ESP and super-vision); the ability to transform into a human-sized star; and many others.
