Blackstar

(aka Cobra Blackstar)

Note: The filecard describes the figure as the best of a team of Blackstars, who are not otherwise distinguished from the individual described. Thus the figure may be fairly regarded either as an individual agent or as a generic soldier type.

Animated Appearances

To my knowledge, Blackstars were never animated.

Headcanon

The Blackstar forces worked as mercenaries for the Lunartix Empire and were responsible for the capture of Space Shot. They contracted with Cobra for eighteen months in 1988 and 1989, against the wishes of their Lunartix bosses.

Cobra Commander has formed an alliance with the Blackstar forces, a secret legion of space pilots whose origins remain unknown. This particular COBRA BLACKSTAR is the best pilot out of all the Blackstar ranks. He, like all Blackstars, behave as if space was his natural habitat. They have incredible agility in zero gravity zones, climb planetary craters with ease, and instinctively avoid asteroid belts while engaged in stellar dogfights. No one has ever seen a Blackstar up close, and rumors have spread throughout the galaxy that they might not even be human!
