Here is how Astron Star Soldier was described:

It is the future…1983…and Captain James L. Hunt sets out on a one way journey into space. Disaster strikes when he crashes into another ship manned by a lone "Bionaut" called Astron. Somehow the accident merges both beings into one gestalt entity. With two minds now inhabiting one superpowered form, they return to Earth, where as Astron Star Soldier he/they defend the planet from space villains.

And how he originally looked, with a cover by Mike Grell.
