Nerd! He hated that word. Dweeb, doofus, geek, weenie; you get the general idea. Okay, maybe he wasn't the most physical guy. Sure, he was a little overweight, and he looked like he could build a dam with his teeth, and got into lots of fights he never won, and he was scared of heights and women, but he was smart. He would show them all!

He went out and got his Bachelor's Degree, then his Masters, then worked as a researcher for a multinational corporation. He didn't get along with anyone; no one really wanted him around. It was when the other scientist gave him an impromptu "nerd of the year" award at a party that he started plotting revenge.

The opportunity for revenge came when he was working on Project: Density, along with an elderly scientist. They were working on a project to study the effects of density on a gravitational field. The scientist accidentally discovered a method to alter the density of an object. It could vary the density of a living being from intangibility, to the density of a black hole! Seeing profit in this device, he murdered the old man.

He found that the device strengthened his muscles, transforming him from "Fat nerdo" to "Eat your heart out, Charles Atlas!" in a matter of days. His physiognomy adjusted just fine; he couldn't believe the difference. He was now both rich and handsome. Who said crime didn't pay!

Best of all, he was attacked by super heroes. Instead of having his face punched in, he won! The big bad super heroes would drop at his feet like a bunch of scrawny wimps. He was so effective that a Supervillain team asked him to join, he accepted and ..... Blackstar was born.

Blackstar is a sadistic thug. He likes to show off his strength and toughness. He is sensitive about the way he was treated before he got superpowers; he'll make fun of people, and bully them just as bad as he was bullied. He will often go on fighting long after the other Ultimates have left, losing himself in the joy of battle. One day, that could prove to be a fatal weakness.

Blackstar can control his own density (not destiny, though he says that too). He loves to fight. He will only stop after all of his opponents are down; he will not retreat and may have to be dragged out of combat by his teammates; he was never able to fight before, so he wont pass up an opportunity now.

Blackstar is 30 years old and wear a mostly black costume (with red trim). He is 6'1" tall (6'0" when density is active), and 200 lbs (much heavier with density on).
