> If anyone can nutshell it, what's the difference between "Starro the Conqueror" and "The Star Conqueror?" They're both giant alien starfish who control peoples' minds right?

It says that the Star Conqueror IS related to Starro, but they said the how of it is unrevealed. I guess they never got around to explaining it.
During Grant Morrison's run on JLA, the team twice faced a different member of Starro's race; this member was much larger, colored green rather than purple, and was known simply as "the Star Conqueror" or "It". When it first appeared, it took control of the Flash and countless innocents in a town, intending to capture and control the rest of the JLA when they arrived and use them to form a galaxy-conquering army. However, the Spectre warned the JLA about this, and they thus convinced the Spectre to briefly remove their powers for the battle. While the rest of the team kept the Star Conqueror's slaves distracted, Batman, the only team member with no powers anyway, immobilised the Flash and drove the Star Conqueror away. In its second appearance, this creature manipulated the dream worlds of the people under its control, and was finally captured by the Lord of the Dreaming with the League's assistance.Scott
