Alexis Starling was a Photography and Art student at Los Angeles University. One evening she was up near the Hollywood sign taking some pictures for her portfolio when she noticed a shooting star. She snapped away as the star came closer, “…the star fell faster and faster, she gazed up at it frozen, she could not move. Faster and faster the star fell, closer and closer until… Silence. For that split second there was nothing. Time stood still. As the star fused with her body they became one. She fell to the ground, her body sparkling like the night sky above…” She absorbed the power of the star and became Starlex!
Starlex is the latest superhero from the shores of jolly old England. While her origin story does feel pretty rote and mundane, the series might be good. In my experience, the Independents tend to take more risks with their IP than mainstream publishers. Most of it is not good, but at least it’s an attempt.
Starlex is brought to you by Tree Frog Comics, one of the many smaller independent comic book publishers out there. I wish I could say more about them, but their Facebook page is kind of threadbare.
