Very good news! Very enjoyable run in First Comics, with yet another
large purple villain (Lord High Papal, copied from Thanos, "borrowed" from Darkseid \:\) ).
Now maybe he could do the same with Grimjack.

Well, Papal is indeed "inspired" by Thanos, just as I am sure that Dreadstar takes some inspiration from Mar-Vell, and Syzygy Darklock definitely had some Adam Warlock elements to him.

Go back read Starlin's original Warlock/Magus story, Warlock gets a glimpse of his future and demise. In Syzygy's Origin story, he also gets a glimpse of the future and his demise.

Syz and Adam (in his first run) had vast power but were also limited at the same time.

As to Dreadstar, a trouble warrior with a checkered past. So was Mar-Vell until he jettisoned his past to become the Protector. Also if Dreadstar ever shaved the beard and mustache he'd be a Mar-Vell lookalike.

Dreadstar really felt to me like Starlin wanted to keep using Mar-Vell, Warlock and Thanos but couldn't at the time.

Great stories!

I always thought Dreadstar was a self insert character for Starlin. That was about the time he went circle beard.
