Fictional character biography
Polestar's costume and gauntlets gave him significant control over various magnetic properties. Personality wise, he seemed obsessed with corporate business stratagems and lingo, seeming for all intents and purposes to be a glorified corporate yuppie answering to his financial backers in the Great Game.
Thomas Duffy, the original Polestar, battled Kaine in his first appearance.[volume & issue needed] Polestar is notable for having aided fellow Spider-Man enemy and Great Game player El Toro Negro in killing the Marvel Comics hero Nightwatch. During an attempt to kidnap the son of Nightwatch's ex-girlfriend (the boy having been declared a prize in the Great Game), Duffy used his suit's powers to peel back Nightwatch's costume (composed of nanites) long enough for El Toro Negro to shoot the hero directly in his exposed chest.
Unfortunately for Polestar, El Toro Negro then immediately turned on him, placing a gun between his eyes and shooting him point blank in the head.[volume & issue needed]
A man named Patrick Trettel soon found sponsorship in the Great Game as the second Polestar, and was seen alongside Joystick battling the new Thunderbolts in New Thunderbolts #2.
