The first villain of the name Starfinger was actually two people: Doctor Lars Hanscom was the controlling mind, but the first person to wear the suit was a brainwashed Legionnaire, Lightning Lad, whom Dr Hanscom was allegedly treating. It was the suit that Hanscom had invented that provided Starfinger's amazing array of super-powers, powered secretly by Lightning Lad's lightning. Eventually, the Legion captured Starfinger and uncovered the identity of both 'Starfingers'.

Later, Starfinger found a way to give himself the powers that he had imbued within the suit. He kidnapped Duo Damsel - on the eve of her wedding to Bouncing Boy - to analyse her power to split her body in two, and then give himself this ability. Superboy rescued Duo Damsel, but Starfinger escaped; he had one more battle with the Legion to come.

Years later, Hanscom was murdered by criminal Char Burrane, who then named himself Starfinger II.
