A STAR RETURNS
Posted: 101318

Starman From the 80's Fits Right In With the Totality Storyline Today

Justice League #8, from James Tynion IV bought back Starman. Not the James Robinson version but Will Payton. The idea of bringing this version of the character back was an idea Tynion and Scott Snyder came up with. So Tynion went back and read most of the Payton stories from the late 80 to get into the idea that there was a major conspiracy that began at the beginning of the universe. We have seen hints of the Legionnaires Club and the group that it was formed from in the first arc of Justice League, the Totality. Using the Payton version made the most sense since he was involved in experiments that tried to delve into the cosmic unknowns of the DCU. The cosmic energy inside of Starman is tied to the Totality and so when he uses his powers he will be connected with the basic energies of the universe. His story is just another part of the mystery being set up that will lead into a much larger story. #8 also marked the return of the Batman who Laughs who has a plan that no one is even close to figuring out.
