rescued her from an ambush and took her to Earth to save her life, she never forgave him. She fought against Dr. Doomsday
and Brother Brood while on X-Patrol

when the team first started and at first was rude to her teammates. Over time, her concern to return to Tamojoran has been clouded by her position in the X-Patrol.
According to the letters column of X-Patrol #1, Shatterstarfire starred alongside the Amalgam equivalent of Wonder Woman in the metafictional Mighty Amazons #64, and the two struck up a friendship.
After being captured byBrother Brood, Shatterstarfire was telekinetically moved to safety by Niles, and she returned to New York to summon theX-Patrol and rescue Niles Cable.

Powers and abilities
Shatterstarfire's alien physiology constantly absorbs ultraviolet radiation and converts it to energy for flight. She has the ability to channel and project that same energy into destructive blasts called "starbolts". She is also capable of assimilating other languages through physical contact with another person. She possesses superhuman strength.
Shatterstarfire possesses an overall superhuman level of physical and mental power (senses, speed, reflexes, agility, dexterity, coordination, balance, endurance). She is an excellent strategist and has had extensive training in many forms of the martial arts; in particular, she is a master swordswoman. Her bones are hollow, making her far lighter than she looks and further increasing her athletic and acrobatic skills. She customarily wields two swords and on occasion carries other weaponry as well. Shatterstarfire is able to regenerate damaged or destroyed tissue much faster than an ordinary human. Injuries such as slashes and stabbings heal completely within a matter of hours.
