Explanation of the conversion:

Iron Man #55 History: Eros is a member of the Eternals, a genetic offshoot of humanity, that left for deep space from Earth years ago and settled on Jupiter's moon of Titan. Eros is the youngest son of Alars and Sui-San, and he grew up to be a fun-loving, carefree womanizer in contrast to his brother Thanos, a power-hungry, misanthropic schemer. Only when Thanos launched his first major attack against Titan, an attack that left their mother Sui-San dead, did Eros begin to take life a bit more seriously.

Years later, in a subsequent campaign of terror by Thanos, Eros fought alongside Titan's handful of survivors. Eros then joined the alien Captain Mar-Vell and the Earth hero-team called the Avengers in the first major defeat of Thanos. No longer bound by duty on Titan, Eros left the war-torn moon, seeking out pleasure and recreation on humanoid-inhabited worlds.

Eros returned to Titan to help console his friend Mar-Vell when he, cancer-stricken, retreated to Titan to spend his final days of life. Just before he died, Mar-Vell made Eros promise to take care of his Titanian companion, Elysius, after he was gone. Eros honored his vow for several weeks, until Elysius, realizing his wanderlust, released him from his promise. Eros then consulted ISAAC, Titan's master computer, for data on the most suitable planets for his needs and temperament. The computer recommended Earth. Traveling there, Eros visited the only people he knew, the Avengers, and petitioned them to make him a member. The Avengers admitted him to their training program and gave him the name Starfox, since they felt Eros was an inappropriate code-name. As Starfox, Eros served the Avengers faithfully for several months, helping them vanquish such menaces as the Wizard, Terminus, and Maelstrom.

Finally, while in the Skrull empire rescuing fellow Avenger Captain Marvel II, Starfox was abducted by the space pirate Nebula, who claimed to be Thanos's granddaughter and thus Eros' grand-niece. Nebula was defeated, and Eros resigned his active membership in the Avengers to pursue Nebula, who had eluded them with the help of the near-omnipotent Beyonder. He soon met up with Firelord, the former Herald of Galactus whose native world Xandar was destroyed by Nebula, and the two searched the universe for Nebula for many months.

Eros was later summoned to the side of Thanos, who had at the time assembled the so-called Soul/Infinity Gems to create the Infinity Gauntlet and thereby give himself omnipotent power. Thanos had also summoned Nebula in order to scoff at such a family reunion. Thanos was soon defeated by an assemblage of the universe's heroes and the original Soul Gem owner, Adam Warlock, who ultimately took the Infinity Gauntlet for himself. Eros elected to take Nebula into custody of the Eternals on the moon Titan.

Eros returned to a hedonistic life of adventure, preferring to wander space in search of romance and adventure. He would often return to help the Avengers in their adventures, serving during such cases as the Terminus crisis, Operation: Galactic Storm, and the Nemesis case involving the Infinity Gems and the so-called Ultraverse. More recently, he aided Photon and other Avengers against the Controller.

Avengers III #1 Starfox was among the members of the Avengers who were captured by Morgan Le Fay and mind controlled into becoming her personal guard, the Queen's Vengeance. While serving her he went by the name Knave of Hearts (Avenges III #2-3).

After being freed from Le Fay he teamed up with Tigra and spent time on Deneb-7, a pleasure planet (Avengers III #4).

After a while on Deneb-7 Tigra became bored and the two left seeking adventure. Tigra and Starfox were among the reserve Avengers who responded to Quasar III's call for assistance in investigating the destruction of a Rigelian outpost world. He traveled with Tigra to the outpost world and met up with Thor, Photon and Moondragon, where they found the only survivor to be the wounded Jack of Hearts. Together they fought a Servator of the Infinities (Avengers Infinity #1).

Powers: Starfox is a member of the offshoot of humanity known as the Eternals. His body has been enhanced by cosmic energy to the point that it no longer ages and is superhumanly strong and resistant to harm. Eros can lift about 10 tons under optimal conditions. He can harness his cosmic powers to enable himself to fly, transmute matter and to stimulate the pleasure centers people's brains, making them calm and open to suggestion using his persuasion skill.
