New Jersey's newest resident Alien and Superhero in training.
Jason Starboard was a US Astronaut performing an experiment with a prototype single man space craft when things went horribly wrong. The experimental engine shot him to the far end of the Solar system. He would have died out there in the depths of the void, if he had not been saved by D’ynia.
D’ynia was an alien heroine, a member of a intergalactic band of heroes called the Star-wardens. The feisty alien saved Jason and brought him to to a hidden alien fortress secreted away amongst the rings of Saturn. The two initially had some trouble getting along, but as they say in space “nothing like an invasion of sentient shadow beasts to bring people together.”
D’ynia and Jason were inseparable after that, exploring the farthest reaches of the galaxy, facing the greatest threats in the void and growing closer, until Jason finally gave in and gave D’yina his heart, and she, her hand in marriage. But by this time Jason took the monicker “Starborn.”
Gordon was born 19 years ago, and to say he had an interesting child hood is an understatement. Whether he was living on mars, going on family vacations to distant alien worlds, or receiving home tutoring from the god-machines of star sized space ships, Gordon lived an exciting life, until he came back to his father’s home world of Earth.
He was visiting his grand-parents in Milwaukee when his chest exploded with power. Unbeknownst to him, a colossal battle had been waged between his aging parents, an a mysterious alien force that was trying to break into Real space. In the battle, his mom and dad were killed, but not before D’ynia willed the Star-heart, the source of her power, to her son.
To this day Gordon still has no idea what happened to his mother and father. However since their deaths he has been isolated form normal society. Partially due to his less then normal upbringing. Partially due to the fact that Gordon is insanely powerful, able to effortlessly fly at speeds exceeding light, create hard light constructs with his mind, re-align molecules or condense photons into explosive blasts. Gordon is now finally getting ready for the public..or so he thinks.
Gordon is so used to the exotic and strange, that earth is painfully boring and or stupid to him. He doesn’t resent Earth and he certainly likes some parts of it, but most of the time he would rather be anywhere but Earth.
Cocky: Gordon is powerful. Very powerful. And he knows it. This makes him underestimate his foes and overestimate himself.
Hero: Gordon still holds onto a childish dream. A dream to be a hero. Gordon will refuse to harm unarmed people, commit crimes or allow innocents to come to harm.
Hidden in plain sight: Gordon tries to keep his power in check to avoid attention. But when innocents are in danger, only then does Gordon commit his full power to a fight.
