Little did I know that there are thousands of companies called northstar, which has caused confusion. I’ve received phone calls, emails and parcels for print companies, drainage businesses and couriers that bear the same name.
Just out of interest I did a Google search for ‘northstar’ and was pleased to see I came up on the first page from over 9 million results.
Wikipedia came up number one with this definition of the word:
“Northstar is a Canadian mutant with superhuman powers, which he uses for the betterment of society. Originally a member of Alpha Flight, he is later portrayed as a member of the X-Men.”
“Northstar is noted as one of the first openly gay superheroes in American comic books.”
