The Sun-Eaters were originally conceived as weapon of mass destruction by a race of beings known as the Controllers. It acted as an artifical black hole and compressed a star to a point it went supernova. The resulting release in thermal energy would empower the Sun-Eater further. With these weapons, the Controllers could greater exact their pro-active agenda to stop evil across the universe. There are some Sun-Eaters that develop into a sentient lifeform. Like wild animals, they possess instinctual navigation and migratory patterns.
Superman once found an infant Sun-Eater lost and wandering in orbit near Jupiter. He took it with him to his Fortress of Solitude's intergalactic zoo and cared for it ever since. Superman grew rather attached to it, and vice-versa, like a pet and fed it miniature suns created with the Cosmic Anvil. The Sun-Eater lived in a special gravity pen that required cleaning from time to time. Superman hoped to one day release it back onto its species' migration routes out past the Oort Cloud. During the battle with Solaris, the Sun-Eater appeared and attacked the Tyrant Sun. However, Solaris killed the Sun-Eater.
