Dampyre and Throk confronted a group of Rigellians that came to investigate the massacre of Charter members at the Hub. They took the Rigellians captive. Later, when the Star Masters invaded their vessel at the Hub, Dampyre attacked the Silver Surfer, and used his tendrils to incapacitate him. Dampyre was pleased to have defeated the Silver Surfer, and bragged to his allies of the accomplishment as they turned the Star Masters over to Sidereus so that they could be placed into the Cauldron of Conversion.
However, the Star Masters escaped the Cauldron, and led another attack on their vessel after they had left the Hub. Dampyre tried to drain Quasar's energies, but found the Quantum energies to be too powerful for him to handle, and collapsed. Dampyre was on board the vessel when Lord Votan ordered it to self-destruct, but he and those on board faked their deaths.
