Mon*Star is the Mob Boss and the main antagonist of SilverHawks and especially Stargazer. He is known to ride Sky-Runner, a giant squid. Later, Hardware develops a fighting hawk for Mon*Star, the Sky-Shadow.
Mon*Star is the head of the Limbo Mob, and functions as the local criminal kingpin. He has been around Limbo for over 300 years and has escaped from "Penal Planet 10" (a maximum security prison) twice. He gets his powers for transformation from the Moon*Star. He has a personal vendetta against Stargazer for his second capture, and likewise all who align themselves with the SilverHawks. He also had previous battles with Condor.
Mon*Star has at times appeared to actually enjoy doing battle with the SilverHawks. He also seems to forgive or at least hide previous conflicts with his gang members, though this may be due more to his need for their abilities than to any compassion or mercy in his character.
Powers and Abilities
Mon*Star is a cruel and cunning criminal. He maintains an iron grip on the Limbo underworld, and very few dare any action without his approval, which usually comes with a price tag. He also has above normal strength, capable of beating through an armor plate to gain the light of Limbo's Moon*star. While not seen very often, he can use his Light-Star ability for simple punishment of others.
Once the transformance light of Limbo's Moon-star hits Mon*Star, he becomes entirely covered in robotic armor. His strength is then many times greater than in his normal form. He has jets on his elbows that he can use to fly through space or planet or fire red energy blasts. He tends to use the the Light-Star in his transformed form for causing damage, hold a foe, and hypnotize foes.
Transformed Form Energized
At one time, he came into possession of a fragment of the Moon*Star, called a Moon*Stone. When he transformed into his armored form while holding it, it magnified his powers greatly, giving him the power to fire energy blasts from his hands, as well as super strength. He also was shown to have a form of levitation ability.
A shot of the Disintegrator was shown to cause Mon*Star to lose his armor and revert to his normal form. The same was also shown when he was shocked with a great amount of volts of electricity.
- Mon*Star appears in the 2011 Thundercats series in episode "Legacy".
