Preceded by Nemesis and a team from Portal Corp, could also argue him as the first Hero to travel to the Rikti Homeworld, but without knowing the composition of the Portal Corp team (which I suppose might have included a Hero of some sort), I didn't include that.
Was re-reading the Paragon City History and Star Strider just struck me as interesting. First casualty (MIA), arguably first Hero to travel to the Rikti Homeworld, and if "invulnerable" Ajax could survive, maybe an "invulnerable" force field might do something for Star Strider too. And as an "interstellar explorer" he might not even be stuck on the Homeworld. Fun one to speculate about. - Scuzzbopper 23:49, 22 July 2008 (UTC)
