Seeking help in understanding human ways, Colos settled in Dallas, Texas and chose two humans as his deputies, bestowing upon them Darkstar armor and training in exchange for guidance and maybe even friendship. These humans are Mo Douglas, a homeless Vietnam veteran and John Flint, a narcotics police officer who is just as hardened as Colos. They put on the armor just in time to face Evil Star and his Starlings, seeking vengeance against Green Lantern. They acquitted themselves well and currently continue their training. Together, these three Darkstars patrolled the Earth, seeking out crime and waiting for a call to engage otherworldly threats.
