Starfox is able to move with supersonic speed and he is able to fly. He can also help stimulate the pleasure centre in the brains of humans. At times this has gotten him into some trouble with the ladies. He can make a person become infatuated with him but this does not work on brains that do not have a pleasure centre.

Interesting Facts

While Starfox is powerful is not as powerful as his cousins who are the Titanium Eternals. There have been different depictions of Starfox over the years. He has gone by the name Eros. In some versions of the comic, he appeared to be infected by a zombie avenger. It turns out this was part of an elaborate trap. At one time the power to stimulate the pleasure centre in the human brain was shut off. This was done so that Starfox was not able to abuse this power and take advantage of people that may not have been willing.

Starfox is able to communicate with just about everyone on Earth and in space. He is able to speak over 500 languages. When he is in flight he can move so fast that the air particles cling to him. This is one superhero from outer space that could have easily gone to the dark side. Instead, he chooses to go with the hero’s and fight for the life of humanity.
