Creator Jim Starlin is known to recycle names and concepts from his stories. Between 1976 - 79 he wrote and penciled five short stories for Warren Publishing's book "Eerie" about Darklon the Mystic; one of his ancestors was Darklore II. Darklon even slightly resembles Marvel's Darklore and is also missing his left eye.
In that same issue Doctors Hoffstaeder and Bell and the Willwood Hospital from Warlock # 13 had cameo appearances, and Barry Bauman was mentioned.
The name also slightly resembles that of (Syzygy) Darklock, the wizard from Dreadstar whose left eye is replaced by a cyborg implant, another earlier Starlin creation.
