An sí Tintallë Varda Oiolossëo ve fanyar máryat Elentari ortanë.
There actually is a reference in the Book of Lost Tales to Varda using her "wings of speed" to carry the stars up to the highest heaven. I'm assuming, for the sake of this comic, that Melkor's demonic black bat-wings look all sinister and impressive, but can no longer carry him as high as Varda's angel-wings. :)
The '500 years' figure is from the Annals of Aman in HoME - technically it took her 50 Valian years to make the stars, which depending on which conversion factor Tolkien was working from that day means 500 of 'our' years, 479 years or 7200 years. I went with the round number.
