For the meta-human known as "Dwarfstar", see Sylbert Rundine.

Dwarf star is a rare type of metal alloy that is extremely strong, dense and powerful. It can also be used to generate a blue energy in the form of blasts, shockwaves or even size alteration beams; which notably is used by the A.T.O.M. Exosuit's weapons. Dwarf star is one of the rarest, most powerful and dense metallic alloys in the entire multiverse.

History

It has been used by Ray Palmer in the creation of the A.T.O.M. Exosuit[1] and the Steel suit.

Quentin Turnbull developed bullets laced with the alloy, that could cause massive explosions of blue energy on impact and even bypass Nate Heywood's enhanced durability to wound him.[2]

Due to its density rendering the alloy extremely heavy, Superman made a key to his Fortress of Solitude from a condensed version of this alloy that only immensely strong beings can lift, as it weighs approximately 500 thousand kilograms (approximately 550 short tons).[3]

Sylbert Rundine stole a large quantity of dwarf star alloy and was carrying it with him when he was on Central City Bus 405. The subsequent dark matter that he was exposed to reacted with the alloy and turned him into a meta-human with the power to alter the size of anything.[4]

Behind the scenes

  • In the real world, dwarf star is a star of relatively small size and low luminosity. Most main sequence stars are dwarf stars. The term was originally coined in 1906 when the Danish astronomer Ejnar Hertzsprung noticed that the reddest stars—classified as K and M in the Harvard scheme could be divided into two distinct groups.
