Explanation of the conversion:
History: After gaining the quantum bands once possessed by Marvel
Boy, Wendell became a super-agent working for S.H.I.E.L.D. as Marvel Man (Captain
He later went on to
become head of security at Project Pegasus as Quasar III, where he battled
Deathlok, Nuklo, the Grapplers, and the Nth Man (Marvel Two-In-One #53-58).
He journeyed to an alternate reality with the Thing
(Marvel Two-In-One #73).
His mind was briefly taken over by the Serpent Crown (Marvel Two-In-One Annual #5).
Once it was established that Bruce Banner's mind was in control of the Hulk's body, the Hulk was treated to a celebration in New York city where he received a presidential pardon from Ronald Reagan, the key to the city, and praise from a number of superheroes, including Quasar III (Incredible Hulk #279).
Quasar traveled to Neptune to see if he could learn the origin of the quantum
bands, and was attacked by Deathurge, but when he was appointed Protector of
the Universe by Eon he was able to defeat Deathurge (Quasar #1-2).
He assisted the Avengers in battling Super-Nova (Avengers #302-303).
The Avengers eventually made him a member. He encountered Utau the Watcher (Quasar #6), met the Stranger and solved the Watcher's Oblivion Plague (Quasar #15-16).
He was captured and killed by Maelstrom in his bid to gain
the quantum bands, but his energy form was preserved by
Infinity, he fought Maelstrom and was restored, but Eon was killed in the
process (Quasar #19-25).
At the funeral of Eon he fought Thanos (Quasar #26).
Quasar was among the Avengers who fought Morgan Le Fay when she tired to take over the world, while briefly under her control he went by the name Star-Knight (Avengers III #2-3).
Afterwards he left earth to return to his Protector of the Universe duties.
He discovered a recently destroyed Rigelian outpost world. He sent
out a signal for fellow Avengers to aid him and was joined by Thor, Photon, Moondragon, Tigra and Starfox on outpost world, where they found the only survivor to be the wounded Jack of Hearts. Together they fought a Servator of the Infinities (Avengers Infinity #1).
Note: Wendell is in no way related to Quasar, who appeared in an
early issue of Iron Man or Quasar II, who was a member of the Shi'ar
Powers: Quasar has no innate super powers, but has been bonded with
the quantum bands, a pair of powerful artifacts that allow him to manipulate
energy for a variety of purposes. He can fly, create a protective aura
around himself and others, create energy constructs and jump into
quantum space. He has programmed his bands to protect him from mental
manipulation, making him nearly impervious to mental powers.
