History[]

Thom Kallor was the son of Fryd and Mira Kallor, of the planet Xanthu. His parents were astronomers, and he was born with a mutant ability to draw mass from the stars and increase the mass of any person or object.

When a young man, he flew his spaceship through the tail of a comet, and this gave him a variety of super-powers, similar to those of Superboy.

He joined the Legion of Super-Heroes as 'Star Boy'. Soon after he joined, he was seriously injured during a mission, and was out of action for quite a while. On his return, the additional powers he had gained from the comet had faded away.

He then met and fell in love with Dream Girl, who had joined the Legion for a short while, but then left again as she had joined under false pretences.

On a visit to his parents' observatory on the planet Karak, Star Boy was threatened by Kenz Nuhor, who alleged that Thom had stolen his girlfriend, Nura Nal (Dream Girl). He had already killed a visiting surveyor, Jan Barth. Before Nuhor could kill him, Thom used his power on him, and this caused Nuhor's death. Although the Science Police exonerated him from blame, the Legion took a different view, and put Thom on trial, saying he could have dealt with the matter without killing Nuhor. He was expelled from the Legion.

On leaving, Thom found Dream Girl waiting for him. She had joined the Legion of Substitute Heroes, and invited Thom to join also.

Some months later, both Thom and Nura were accepted again as Legionnaires in good standing, following an event where both Superboy and Supergirl had temporarily to leave the Legion, while simultaneously the Legion was threatened by a group of villains named the Devil's Dozen.
