Starhaven is a planet in Earth-38, considered to be "the most idyllic planet in the universe".[1] However if it were as perfect as claimed it would have Universal Healthcare like any civilised nation and Alphonse Luzano wouldn't have had to become a drug smuggler.


Starhaven was home to many different species of Starhavenites, including Valerians.[2]

Medicine was rare and expensive on Starhaven.

The planet is implied to have a liberal culture regarding marriage, as polygamy seems to be practiced; Alphonse Luzano was confirmed to have more than one wife.

Starhaven was once very beautiful, with air that smelled like cinnamon.[3] However, the planet was later destabilized by an ecological plague, hurting its environment and denizens.[1]


Kara Zor-El was taken to Starhaven by her father, Zor-El, when she was young and would fondly remember how the cinnamon-scented air smelt.

At some point, a severe storm ravaged Starhaven. Afterwards, Alphonse Luzano's wife fell ill. Desperate to get the money for her treatment, Luzano turned to drug smuggling, but was caught during his first run and sentenced to 18 years in Fort Rozz.[3]

Lyra Strayd and her family originated from Starhaven. At some point in Lyra's youth, a blight wiped through the planet, turning its cinnamon-scented air into that of "death". This catastrophe triggered a decade-long war, killing many inhabitants. Lyra's parents were among the victims, having starved to death. Lyra and her brother, Bastian, then fled Starhaven and made their way to Earth.[1][2]
