Reply Subj: What's the Deal With Starro? Isn't He A CLASSIC JLA Villian? How Come

he never appears. It looked like he was going to appear in the latest JLA arc, but no luck so far. Red herring, I guess. Speaking of, how many times has Starro fought the JLA? What issues? Does Starro really talk or anything? I don't know much about the character, but for possibly the JLAs worst enemy, he rarely appears. Odd.

I imagine that Starro's lack of appearances is because writers probably think to themselves "how much can actually be done with a giant starfish?"

Starro's appearances listed at the DC Guide:
Brave and the Bold #28 (February-March 1960) "Starro the Conqueror"
Justice League of America #27 (May 1964) "The 'I' Who Defeated the Justice League"
Justice League of America #65 (September 1968) "T.O. Morrow Kills the Justice League - Today"
Adventure Comics #451 (May-June 1977) "The Secret of the Sinister Abyss"
Justice League of America #189 (April 1981) "The Return of the Starfish Conqueror"
Justice League of America #190 (May 1981) "Our Friends, Our Enemies"
Captain Carrot & His Amazing Zoo Crew #1 (March 1982) "The Pluto Syndrome"
Crisis on Infinite Earths #9 (December 1985) "War Zone"
Justice League Europe #25 (April 1991) "Nightcrawlers!"
Justice League Europe #26 (May 1991) "Stars In Your Eyes"
Justice League Europe #27 (June 1991) "The Vagabond King"
Justice League Europe #28 (July 1991) "The Man Who Wears the Stars"
