Arthur Dearborn (Sunturion) was tasked with guarding Roxxon's orbing space station "Star Well." The station was powered by Vibranium. The space station used a microwave beam to kill everybody in Allentown, Iowa. (This was apparently an accident, as a result of equipment malfunction or inadvertent user error.) The "Star Well" space station then began falling toward Earth due to a decaying orbit. It was destroyed by Sunturion in order to prevent it from killing more people by crashing into a populated area on Earth.
