    Fomerly Epic Illustrated, then Epic Comics, then Dreadstar leaves Marvel for First comics until they went away.

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!
