Thom Kallor was born in the thirtieth century aboard an observation satellite orbiting the planet Xanthu, to parents who studied the stars by gathering their radiation - radiation that caused Kallor to be born a mutant with the ability to draw matter from the stars and add it to any object around him. Kallor’s abilities made him a scientific curiosity, studied by the scientists of Xanthu for years before he ran away to Earth, where he joined the Legion of Super-Heroes as Star Boy.

While in the Legion, Kallor fell in love with fellow Legionnaire Dream Girl. Soon thereafter, Kallor was attacked by a former suitor of Dream Girl wearing a shield that reflected Kallor’s powers back on himself. Immobilized and in mortal danger, Kallor was forced to kill the man. Though he acted in self-defense, Kallor was ejected from the Legion of Super-Heroes. After spending time redeeming himself as a member of the Legion of Substitute Heroes, Kallor was welcomed back into the Legion of Super-Heroes.

Star Boy is considered one of the most powerful beings in the galaxy, according to Brainiac 5, as he could create a black hole by using a simple object as a central point, though the black hole is apparently dependent upon his powers to remain active.

Star Boy's power sets are, according to a discussion with +Steve Kenson, quite interchangeable. The effects of both power sets are "basically the same". Because of the convoluted story of oh-so-many Star Boys, I've decided to stick with the essential, the one whose background story was the same for all versions. Also, I've discarded all the schizophreniac side of him, because of the abstruse way writers dealt with it. Character revised according to rules presented in ICONS Great Power book. Streamlined, once again, according to ICONS Superpowered Roleplaying: The Assembled Edition.
