History

Interface was a member of the Council of Uloc Elders, the leaders of his planet, when they were visited by the Universal Church of Truth. When they declined the Church’s brand of world peace, their planet was purified.

He was one of the few to survive, and was promptly enslaved, and his wife and daughter were lost. He served as technician for the Church until visited by the being Tachyon, who empowered him and helped him escape.

Visiting the planet Centauri IV, they rescued the infant they would name Photon, and Interface adopted her as his own. He formed a mercenary group around himself, named Force, recruiting others with unique talents.

When he learned of a sacred shield which supposedly bestowed great power on its wielder, he led his group on a search for the shield. They eventually tracked it down to a planet, where the computer that runs the world, Main Frame, forced them to compete against another team that had been searching for the shield, the Guardians of the Galaxy.

With the other contests resulting in draws, the final contest came down to Interface versus Vance Astro. Interface easily subdued Astro, but when he seized the shield, he didn’t understand that its “power” was symbolic, and was so caught up in trying to access the power that Astro managed to take it away from him.

Losing due to his motives rather than the contest, Interface, Force, and their ship were teleported 15 parsecs (1 parsec = 3.26 light years) away by Mainframe. Seeing no benefit in returning to challenge Mainframe or the Guardians, Interface ordered them to move on to other possibilities.

When Force were attacked by Malevolence, their resistance was easily dispatched, apart from Brahl, who happily made a deal with Malevolence. She declared them her slaves, using her power to keep them in line, and assigning Brahl as their new leader.

She led them to Homeworld, centre of the Universal Church of Truth, where she challenged for the role of matriarch to Protégé. When Malevolence sensed the Guardians, with her main rival, Aleta, approaching, she dispatched Force to delay them. Force attack the Guardians on board their vessel.

Martinex convinces Interface to call a truce, but when Yondu instinctively severs Photon’s jugular, Interface lashes out, transmuting Yondu’s hand into vapour. They finally call a truce, apart from Brahl, who flees to tell Malevolence of their treachery.

Joining forces, they travel to Homeworld to confront Malevolence. She convinces Protégé that they are coming to harm him, so he dispatches his elite guards, forcing them to use their powers in his presence. The battle is stopped when Starhawk reabsorbs Aleta, and leaves, allowing Malevolence to win by default.

Force and the Guardians are spared when the Guardian, Replica, herself a Universalite, begs Protégé for their lives. He accedes, banishing them from Homeworld. Force leave, looking for new opportunities for profit.


Personality

Cold and analytical, the only thing that can break his composure is a threat to those close to him, which at the moment is only really his adoptive daughter, Photon, and he has flown into a rage when she has been in serious jeopardy. Calculating and aloof, Interface has little interest in revenge, focussing only on profit and power.


Quotes

“Force ! Cease this senseless display at once ! I shall never understand why you take such pleasure in wanton destruction !”

“At last ! Now no power in the universe can say me nay ! Now I shall be invincible !”


DC Universe History

Interface was the result of a breeding program run by the Dominators on an isolated colony. Having acquired a Trommite, they bred it with a Dominator, the child being raised along with the other half-breeds in the colony’s “zoo”.

When the colony refused to accept the Dark Circle’s (Giffen-Bierbaum version) faith, they were wiped out, with the few survivors taken as slaves.

Force have clashed with the Legion of Super Heroes on a couple of occasions, most recently when Brahl manoeuvred them into fighting as part of a plan to gain revenge on Phantom Girl. He was expelled from the group as a result.
