The Starman Omnibus

By James Robinson

The classic super-hero series STARMAN, starring a Gen-X super-hero, is re-presented in high quality format by James Robinson (BATMAN: FACE THE FACE) and Tony Harris (EX MACHINA).

The super-heroic legacy of Starman is renewed in these stories, in which Jack Knight--antiques collector and dealer--inherits the name and powers of his father's old Starman identity from his older brother, who has been assassinated. Reluctantly adjusting to his role, Jack reinvents the look of Starman, ditching the traditional red and green in favor of black leather and aviator goggles. But Jack has inherited more than a heroic identity from his brother . . . he's also gained a foe: the beautiful but mentally unbalanced Nash, daughter of the villain known as the Mist. Jack also must come to grips with the Shade, the morally ambiguous former villain who decides to become Jack's mentor.

Summary: "Jack Knight is a rabid collector, operating an antiques and collectibles store in the heart of Opal City. Despite being the son of Ted Knight, the Golden Age hero known as Starman, Jack is nothing like him. Rebellious, stubborn and disdainful of Ted's past, Jack is certainly no hero. That is, until a terrible tragedy strikes-- Reluctantly adopting his father's former mantle, Jack forges a path as the latest inheritor of the Starman legacy. But now all of Ted's enemies are determined to snuff out this newest star before Jack has a chance to truly shine. Can Jack overcome incredible odds to prove that he has what it takes to be a hero"--P. [4] of cover, vol. 1.
