-- Shatterstar

Shatterstar was a mutant from an alien dimension, who was genetically modified to become an expert gladiator in order to entertain his creators. When he broke free from his slavery, he traveled to Earth where he saved Rictor from being forced to attack San Francisco.

The two started living together and became best friends, until one night clubbing, they embraced one another and finally shared a kiss.

Rictor and Shatterstar began a steady romantic relationship though not without its difficulties. Rictor, having finally come to terms with his sexual identity, wanted a stable monogamous relationship with Shatterstar. Shatterstar, on the other hand, found himself interested in a more open relationships which would allow him to explore other sexual possibilities. The two resolved that they would work things out, and proceeded to make up both emotionally and physically.
