    Major Story Arcs


    Being struck in his eye, Warbow was brought to Ogeode, the old wizard of Order, whom saved Warbow's life and transformed him into a crystal warrior to help defeat Moltar's Magma Men. In his new form, Warbow had enhanced strength and endurance. He no longer needed to eat, drink or breathe. Unfortunately, his loss of an eye left his accuracy diminished.

    Warbow appeared to be fond of Ambara, and was internally sad to see her affections belong to Crystar. Later, he became close to Ika, Ogeode's daughter.


    Years later, Warbow reappeared during the events of Secret Wars, in which the whole Marvel Universe was destroyed and reformed by Doctor Doom. He was seen again as a prisoner in a place named Weirdworld where he met and befriended the barbarian named Arkon. Arkon helped Warbow in his quest to rescue Crystar from the evil Morgan le Fay.
