After the Earth disappears, a handful of strange visitors from other planets — Kell Orr of Xenon and his twin son and daughter Larre and Kelle, Tharka the Superwoman, and Regor of Uuz — each independently investigate Earth’s disappearance. Yet are they prepared for the cause of Earth’s disappearance, the living star called Aquarius? Having just battled both the JSA and the JLA, Aquarius managed to trick the heroes into believing he was destroyed, when he actually fled into space with Starman’s cosmic rod. But Starman and Green Lantern guess the eons-old villain’s deception and track him into deep space. When the heroes of Earth rendezvous with the super-stars of space, will even their combined powers be enough to stop Aquarius?
The Earth is menaced when the living star called Aquarius attempts to devour the Sun, and only one hero can stop him — Starman! But as Will Payton risks his life to save the world, he must do so while confronting the mysterious changes to his powers he has undergone of late. Can Superman provide the assistance he needs, or must Starman go it alone?
Black Canary is an outlaw once more, framed for crimes committed by her evil alternate timeline double, Magpie! Can she and Starman defeat her evil twin and the Detonator and discover why the mystery villain known only as the Star Czar framed her? Moreover, why is the Star Czar oddly familiar to Dinah Lance?
