Funnily enough, Catastrophe's logic here for why he transformed is pretty much the reason I had for having him do that. Having to do several comics with that gigantic silhouette would be obnoxious.
I also distinctly remember, when these comics went up the first time, a lot of people got confused by these last few, because there wasn't enough of a contrast between the space background and Catastrophe's silhouette. I still can't see the problem, but there you go.
Catastrophe, in retrospect, basically got characterized as a frat boy slash universal cosmic destroyer. Dunno how that happened.
