History

Early history

STAR set up the Erdel Initiative to maintain the Justice League's Zeta-Beam technology.[6]

2010

 
Litchfield County
August 3, post-07:38 EDT

When the Justice League defeated and dismantled the android Amazo on August 3, they intended to send the parts to two different STAR Labs facilities, one in Boston and one in New York. The parts were intercepted en route, but when the Team defeated Amazo again, the parts were successfully sent for analysis to the two separate STAR Labs.[3]

 
Philadelphia
August 8, post-21:57 EDT

The League of Shadows later used the Fog to destroy the Philadelphia facility and steal all of their computer data.[1]

 
Gotham City
November 5, 22:07 EDT

When Klarion and his fellow sorcerers cast a spell to split the world into two dimensions, one for children and one for adults, Lawrence Crock led a mob of angry and confused parents to the Gotham facility, demanding to know where their children had gone. Gotham City Police Department officers, led by Commissioner Gordon, defended the facility. This distraction gave Riddler a chance to sneak in and steal the last Starro fragment,[4] which had been brought to the facility after Black Manta's attack on Poseidonis.[8]

Black Canary, Captain Atom and Nightwing discussed recent events in a STAR Labs office. Blue Beetle interrupted to tell them that he betrayed humanity in Impulse's future and demanded they remove his scarab.[11]

Nightwing and the Team interviewed Green Beetle to confirm his identity, including a half-hearted telepathic scan by Miss Martian. They later discussed the additives the Reach planted in their drink.[13]

 
Taos
April 9, post-05:20 MDT

Outside STAR Labs, Jaime and Green Beetle discussed freeing Jaime of his scarab's influence. Green agreed to turn off his scarab,[13] but in fact put it on-mode, making Jaime the Reach's puppet.[7]

Tired of undergoing tests, Virgil, Tye, Asami Koizumi and Ed escaped the facility. Meanwhile, most of the Amazo parts recovered from the wreckage of the Hall of Justice were delivered to STAR for safe keeping.[7]

STAR Labs came under attack by Red Volcano, who wanted Amazo. Blue Beetle and, soon after, the teens arrived to help.
