The Metropolis building of S.T.A.R. Labs.

S.T.A.R. Labs was a facility located in Metropolis, with other branches in cities such as Gotham City[1] and Paris.[2]


Emil Hamilton served as the lab's director and chief scientist for the Metropolis branch.[3] The lab was not limited to one area of study; everything from mutagenic studies to medicine was researched. Superman formed a research partnership with the organization where he allowed them access to his advanced technology; in return, they helped him cope with several problems he faced, such as his weakness to Kryptonite.[3] He also came here to talk to Hamilton and seek his advice and assistance.[4] The facility was also equipped to perform surgery and provide at least short-term medical care, as Superman brought Supergirl[5] and Orion[6] here for emergency treatment.

In the years leading up to the Cadmus Crisis, the organization seems to have been used as something of a front and tool for the Cadmus Project, as the theft of Kryptonite from the lab was orchestrated by Cadmus, with Emil Hamilton's knowledge.[7] Also, some of the technology used by the Cadmus Project may have been developed here, as Professor Hamilton also occupied a senior position on the Cadmus Project's staff.[8] Superman's alternate suits were housed here, including the anti-Kryptonite suit and a space suit.

The Paris branch of S.T.A.R. Labs was subject to a break-in by Kaznian operatives employed by Vandal Savage; despite the efforts of Batman, they successfully stole a targeting device later used in Savage's Mass Driver.[2]

Parasite was housed at the Metropolis-based S.T.A.R until a special cell could be built for him at Stryker's Prison.[9]
