Starlight is one of two women that Starfinger II summoned from his ring. The other is Starbright.Paul Levitz, Greg LaRocque and first appeared in the pages of Legion of Super-Heroes Vol 3 #41(December, 1987).
The man named Char Burrane who is actually the criminal Starfinger would come upon an item of power while fleeing across the Martian planet's surface. This discovery was mysterious and powerful ring which was capable of generating two separately super-powered women. Introducing themselves as Starlight and Starbright they explained that they originated from a micro world contained within the ring itself.
Starfinger returns to the helm of his criminal organization and frustrated by the Legion of Superheroes getting closer and closer to his operations. The Legion disperses teams across the galaxy looking for Starfinger. Eventually the team is able to follow clues which lead them to a satellite orbiting a star upon which Starfinger maintains his base of operations. He threatens his Arranger with death if the Legion is not taken care of. However the Legion makes a surprised assault on the meeting. Starfinger and his super-powered lackeys, Starlight and Starbright, attempt to fight back. Sensor Girl feels that Starfinger is going to destroy his own space station in order to kill the Legion. She orders them away just in time. After the explosion, the Legion is not sure what happened, or even if Starfinger is alive or dead.
In the debris of Starfinger's destroyed headquarters, we see his ring. In the ring Starlight and her pair Starbright escape along with Starfinger and his whole organization, transporting themselves within the ring remaining is hidden.
Sometime later Starlight and Starbright would reappear and this time in the service of Molock Hanscom who is the former leader of the Cosmic Spy League. Molock has decided to take the mantle of Starfinger III and arranges the assassination of Char Burrane. Using intermediaries like his brother, he sends bounty hunters to kill him and capture the ring. Now in control of both Starlight and Starbright after successfully acquiring the ring.
Shrinking Violet sends the Legion to Starfinger's stronghold in the Darzyl system. She does this to protect Starfinger III and the team is there and ready again to fight the Khunds, having learned that the Khunds are hoping to eliminate Starfinger III. With Starfinger out of the way, the Khunds would be able to easily take over the sector both in a military and an economic fashion. Molock attempts to survive the attack by calling on Starlight and Starbright but their abilities are no match for the Khunds assault. Starlight soon has run out of power and needs to return to the ring, leaving only Starbright to defend him. Molock is shot to death and the other half of the pair returns within the ring again to join Starlight.
Starlight or Starbright have not been seen since this last encounter and it's unclear if the new post-Zero Hour continuity will bring them back.
