In this series, the Serpent Men are not slain, but are transported to Set's dimension when exposed to star metal. This capitulation is similar to Saber Rider and the Star Sheriffs, where the aliens were sent to another dimensions instead of dying. This property of Serpent Men was not seen in Howard's original stories (the Serpent Men only appeared in the Kull story "The Shadow Kingdom" of Howard's own stories). In Marvel Team-Up#111, it was noted that dead Serpent did go to a special limbo dimension when dying. See more
