Blastaar[src]

History

Early Life[]

Blastaar hails from tumultuous depths of the Negative Zone, a realm shrouded in mystery and danger. Born amidst the swirling energies and chaotic landscapes of this dimension, Blastaar emerged as a being of formidable power and ambition. As a young Baluurian, Blastaar exhibited an insatiable hunger for control and dominance. Gifted with immense abilities that surpassed those of his peers, he quickly rose to prominence among his kind. With a cunning mind and a will of iron, Blastaar swiftly ascended to the position of ruler, cementing his authority over the planet Baluur. Under his reign, Baluur became a realm of oppression and fear, as Blastaar wielded his vast powers to subjugate the populace and quash any dissent. His rule was marked by tyranny and cruelty, with the inhabitants of Baluur living in constant dread of his wrath. However, even the most iron-fisted of tyrants cannot suppress the spirit of rebellion forever. The oppressed denizens of Baluur eventually rose up against Blastaar's oppressive regime, spurred on by a longing for freedom and justice. In a daring act of defiance, they overthrew their tyrannical ruler and planned to cast him in space on a journey to destruction.[5]

Fantastic Four[]

Blastaar was imprisoned in a special containment suit when it vetured near Mister Fantastic, who was transported into the Negative Zone. During the Sandman's attack on the Baxter Building, he revealed a new ability of his costume, creating a poisonous gas. To save their lives, Reed opened a portal to the Negative Zone, but he got sucked in just before it closed, risking his life at the convergence point of positive and anti-matter.[6] The containment suit was placed on an asteroid headed for destruction. Unaware of the danger, Reed observed as the aliens departed. Triton travelled to the Negative Zone and rescued Reed, and brought him back. However, the containment suit exploded, releasing Blastaar. Unbeknownst to them, Blastaar has followed, teaming up with Sandman to plot the destruction of the Fantastic Four and world domination.[7] The Fantastic Four are ambushed by Blastaar and Sandman and Triton joined the fight but was incapacitated by Sandman. The battle spilled onto the streets, attracting police attention. Sandman questioned his allegiance to Blastaar's power-hungry ways. The Thing subdued Sandman at the docks, while Reed and Sue devise a plan to stop Blastaar. Ultimately, Reed's invention neutralized Blastaar, sending him home.[3]

X-Men[]

Deep in the Negative Zone, Blastaar sought to return to Earth so that he could find a realm worthy of plundering and scourging. Furious over his past defeats, he traveled onward, vowing to get revenge on those who had defeated him. While on Earth, at Xavier's School for Gifted Youngsters, Jean Grey attempted to use a device left behind by the "late" Professor X that could convert her thoughts into radio waves. Despite being cautioned by Beast and Cyclops to be careful, Jean continued to use the device, causing it to malfunction and transported Blastaar from the Negative Zone into the mansion. In the ensuing chaos, Blastaar attacked, injuring Beast before Cyclops called for reinforcements. With Jean and Hank in the infirmary, the team devised a plan using ice statues animated by Jean's powers to defeat Blastaar. The plan succeeded, leading to Blastaar's demise. Though remorseful, Jean found solace in Cyclops's assurance that Blastaar's evil warranted their actions.[8]

Back on Baluur[]

Blastaar became king of Baluur again and expanded his territory significantly. When his empire made contact with Annihilus', they became rivals. Blastaar took Annihilus' Cosmic Control Rod, thus upsetting the balance of power, but the FF forced him to relinquish it.[9]

After another conflict, Blastaar was left adrift in the Negative Zone until he came across Olympia, home of the Eternals, temporarily displaced into the Zone. When he recovered, Blastaar attacked and atomized the Eternals, his concussive shock blasts destabilizing their molecular control. The Avengers arrived searching for the Eternals, and Blastaar was eventually defeated. Despite the initial surprise caused by their dispersal, the Eternals reasserted control over their molecules and reintegrated, undoing Blastaar's disintegration.[10]

Blastaar found himself on Earth again when a team of scientists opened a portal to study the Negative Zone. A group of young heroes known as the New Warriors kept him at bay and, using a map of the Zone that Blastaar was holding, stranded him on an uninhabited planet in the Negative Zone.[11]

Annihilation[]

Blastaar was seen with the Spaceknights, aiding Nova's attempt to assassinate Annihilus.[12]

Following the aftermath of Annihilation, Blastaar was seen leading a group of Kree soldiers against the Phalanx, who had reaped the benefit of Annihilus' war by assimilating the remainders of the weaken alien races including the Kree, but the group is defeated and Blastaar is captured. The Phalanx interrogates Blastaar, and continue to torture him until he apparently dies when he doesn't say a word. This death appears to be simply a hibernation that Blastaar can reverse, which he has used to fool the Phalanx temporarily. Unfortunately, Blastaar became infected with the transmode virus and was made into a Select. His first mission was to stop Star-Lord and his team from crippling the Babel Spire that was powering the galaxy-wide forcefield that isolated the Kree. He killed the former Captain Universe before subduing Star-Lord for interrogation by Ultron personally.[13]

War of Kings[]

Blastaar later became king of the Negative Zone.[2] He and his forces seize control of 42, the Negative Zone Prison, and recruit a number of the imprisoned Earth superhumans there into his army. Later he is approached by the Raptors Talon and Razor, who offer Blastaar the Cosmic Control Rod they took from Catastrophus, in exchange for his assistance in influencing the outcome of the War between the Shi'ar and the Inhumans. While launching an attack to capture and kill Ravenous, Blastaar encountered Nova, who was on a rescue mission to save his brother. Though Blastaar threatened Nova when he tried to provide protection to Ravenous and take Blastaar's ally Strontian as a prisoner of the Nova Corps, Nova silently reminded Blastaar what happened to the last person to threaten him with the Cosmic Control Rod and Blastaar yielded.[14]

Realm of Kings[]

Blastaar (Earth-616) from Spider-Man-Deadpool Vol 1 43 0001

Following the Inhuman-led Kree/Vulcan-led Shi'ar war, Blastaar, in his position as king, became a member of a new Galactic Council (replacing the one slaughtered by Vulcan). Attending the group's first meeting, he came under attack by giant insect-shaped nanotech weapons, seeing it as proving how important he was. After the Guardians of the Galaxy helped fight the weapons off, he complained about their presence, and wanted them gone from the gathering, though Groot's royal status allowed them to remain.[15]

Thanos Imperative[]

Though he aided the other races in their fight for survival against the Cancerverse invasion, Blastaar launched an attack on the Inhumans, trying to make a power grab while the Kree and Inhumans were still recovering from their losses. His attempt to assassinate Queen Medusa was quickly thwarted by the newly formed Annihilators.[16]

End to the Beginning[]

After a scuffle as part of the Frightful Four against the Future Foundation lead by Ant-Man,[17] Blastaar ended up at the end of the universe. He later got sent to the big bang as a form of execution[18] by the government at the end of the universe for his crimes there.[19]

Return[]

Blastaar eventually returned to the present through unknown means and got into a scuffle with Captain Marvel. She defeated him and was taking him into custody when she was mentally transported to different realities by the Reality Stone, allowing Blastaar to get free. When Marvel mentally returned to her native reality, she knocked out Blastaar by overloading him with energy and took him back into custody.[20]
