Ulyseas Stark is my re-imaging the Ironwolf character created by Howie Chaykin.I rethought the whole ground up.Kept what was good,added the Illiad and the Odyssesy-upgraded Stark into a more Jim Kirk character.Stark,originally started out as a concept to create a kind of Alternate version of my Toreus Rhann creation-sort of what Michael Moorcock did with Elric in the Sailors on the Seas of Fate.Stark,originally was character,who found himself enslaved aboard the HMS Black Albatross-a sort of interstellar Flying Dutchman concept.I dumped that and tried to rework the character into my revisioned ''Lord Ironwolf'' concept.
Ulyseas Stark is a lord from the planet Illium, a world with an incredible natural resource, anti-gravity trees that are used to build space ships. Illium is one planet within an Empire, ruled by the beautiful but wicked Empress Erika Klein-Hernandez.
Being a man of honor, Ulyseas Stark doesn't want to share his world's trees with the Empress' barbarian hordes who will simple invade and conquer. When the Empress commands Ulyseas Stark to relinquish control of the forests, Ulyseas Stark makes a snap decision. He rebels, slaughtering the barbarian troops there, and escaping.
So science fiction, a pirate theme, and now vampires. Quite a nice concoction that Chaykin is creating here. Moreover, as with most of Chaykin's work, there are plenty of beautiful strong women throughout the books. With a righteous fury, Ironwolf starts to attack the Empress' troops any time he can. He and his crew are skilled warriors and seem to be racking up victory after victory. Finally Empress Erika calls in her secret weapons - The Blood Legion and their leader Omikel. The Blood Legion are a troop of vampire soldiers, loyal to the empire and incredibly strong.

Chaykin did this also Weird Worlds-a DC Comic that original was showcase Edgar Rice Burroughs creations, but moved other material, such as Iron Wulf.
Much is not said about either creation, on the net and too much is said about the successful characters.Monark Starstalker,as with Lord Iron-Wulf ,was something,under the right hands-mainly not Howard Chaykin-the character creator and ilk appointed by him-to work it,that given the chance could have great potential,but flopped where many ideas-[[Killraven]],[[Deathlok]],[[Adam Warlock,]]in the mind of the creators,on the type writer and on the drawing board,because,although,they share much elements of a succesfful series or franchise such as [[Star Wars]],[[Star Trek]],[[Conan of Cimmeria]]or [[Solomon Kane]],the basic way the character and or storylines,where either handled badly or not with enough to make work.
Monark Starstalker,if remember,was some sort of interstellar bounty hunter,who travel to remote Terran colomy,with his android telepathic hawk,who shared his nervious system.
He has a hand weapon or blaster pistol called a Vortex Pistol,that fires some sort of sensory,tunnel like effect,to take out some bad guys.
Later,a brief origin is told-telling Monark Starstalker,while chasing some bad guys,in his star ship,was forced into a super nova-while trying to capture them.The nova fried his nervious system,but not him.How this was done,never really is explained,as far I can remember and how his survived an explosion of a star,with our hero having his nervious system burned,also is unclear.The surgeons,grafted or somehow technologically,linked to an android hawk,named Ulyseus,so he could feel.This was supposed to make Monark Starstalker,a cold hearted,unfeeling hero,but you see little evidence of that in this 22 page comic,until the end.It is never explained,if they do this sort of operation frequently,but we assume Monark was patient zero.The problem is,here is a great opportunity to give Monark Starstalker Beastmaster abilities,but I don’t think could see or hear what the robot Falcon or Hawk thought ,sensed or felt.It was the usually Howie Chaykin gimmit,like much his depiction of women-sex objects introduced and thrown away,once our hero goes off doing his thing.
Chaykin drew some good action sequences,but the character needed a graphic novel,intelligently written,not the usually,sex obsessed Howard Chaykin,to be given space develop the concept.Robin Goodfreind and Hohhtower,where nothing more than plot plops,to introduce,Monark Starstalkers reason for being on this planet.Hightower,could have to Monark Starstalker,as Commisioner Gordon is to Batman,but Chaykin dropped to ball here.Hightower,was just old,pipe smoking fart,with a few comments to make and Robin Goodfreind,the usually talking,animated plastic fuck doll,you much in later Chaykin works.The villains were your usually,off the self bad guys and that was it.
The premiere bombed-fans followed Chaykin from Lord Iron Wulf,to here and onto Dominic Fortune.Don’t expect Howard Victor Chaykin,to upgrade these guys,after all-the press will yap about American Flag and then his other work first.And if Chaykin,does rework these creation,except shit,because Chaykins what I called a creative moron,with no clue as understand material,he once worked on and quote a bunch of stupid character,I once worked that flopped.We wonder why-was because Howie Chaykin,are a stupid,sex obsessed moron and that why ?
I don’t expect much to come Monark Starstalker or Lord Iron-Wolf (Stark) beyond a reprint or two.I did incorporate element of both into my Prince Toreus Rhann creation and '''Ulyseas''' '''Stark''' character.I know how handle.It is just ashamed both [[Monark Starstalker]] or [[Lord Iron-Wolf ]](Ironwulf) because creator is asshole.Both potential never realized.
End of story.
I’ve already reminisced in the column about how much I enjoyed the original Moon Knight appearances in Spotlight, and how delighted I was to find the Warriors Three issue at a recent show, but I will add that all these books made me a fan of Marvel’s try-out books, period. I just really liked the idea. When DC revived Showcase around the same time, I was first in line for that too.
Comments below Scylla,was actually a Skyllian creature was a grotesque sea monster, with six long necks equipped with grisly heads, each of which contained three rows of sharp teeth. Their body consisted of twelve tentacle-like legs and a cat's tail and with four to six dog-heads ringing their waist.Skyllians,were a remote,[[Xenophoebic ]] [[repitillian ]] [[species]],who roam the Charybdis Nebula-where a massive,defective,[[Tauron]] [[Stargate]] can be found,that can draw in star ships ans near by [[Asteroids]].[[Captain]][[Ulyseas Stark]] and the heroic crew of the [[HMS Star Pheonix]],sailed into this trechous area of deep space,being pursued by the Skyllian [[Battlegroup]].
The phrase "between [[Scylla and Charybdis]]" (or [[wikt:between a rock and a hard place|between a rock and a hard place]]) has come to mean being in a state where one is between two dangers and moving away from one will cause you to be in danger from the other. Traditionally the aforementioned strait has been associated with the [[Strait of Messina]] between [[Italy]] and [[Sicily]], but more recently this theory has been challenged, and the alternative location of Cape Skilla in northwest Greece has been suggested by [[Tim Severin]]. <ref> [[:Template:Cite book]]</ref>

'''[[Plasma''' Sword]] is a powerful offensive melee weapon.'''Plasma''' Sword has four attack moves: Light and Heavy Slash, Silent Dash, and Jump Attackenergy sword is one of the most deadly close range weapons.Plasma Sword are a polished metal grip that can project a blade about one meter long.around a [[Atlantium Steel ]] sword blade.The Atlantean Plasma Sword,originally an eligant weapon of the members of [[The Legion of Time Sorcersrs]],is covered in ancient Asguardian Runes,that light upon once the blade is ignited with super heated gaes. The blade cuts through most substances without resistance, leaves [[cauterization|cauterized]] wounds in flesh, but is deflected by another Plasma Sword blade and energy shield/wall.An active Plasma Sword gives off a distinctive hum, which rises in pitch and volume as the blade is moved rapidly through the air, and bringing the blade into contact with an object or another lightsaber blade produces a loud crackle.
