Starbolt's history is presumably similar to his Earth-616 counterpart's. He was a member of the Imperial Guard. The Guard's newest member, the Earthling Hyperion, became a beloved member of the Guard. After defeating the Shi'ar usurper Deathbird, the Guard went to investigate Deathbird's lair, Treasure World. When it was discovered that Deathbird had been experimenting on Brood parasites, they had already infected many of the Guard's members, including Starbolt. Hyperion was only one to escape who was forced to seal the entrance to Treasure World and leave his teammates behind to keep the Brood trapped there.
Starbolt and the Imperial Guard then escaped Treasure World and apparently infected the Shi'ar Empire, creating the Brood Imperium and turning the Shi'ar throneworld of Chandilar into their throneworld. Starbolt and the Imperial Guard were opposed by Hyperion and were banished to the Negative Zone. The Imperial Guard were able to escape along with other villains banished by Hyperion. They went to Cape Canaveral to steal a ship to get back to Chandilar, but they were stopped by Hyperion and once again banished to the Negative Zone.
