The "*" symbol is treated as a binary operator in Math, so it expects an argument on each side of it. If you don't want anything to be displayed next to it you can use the "invisible" argument "{}".

Code:
A^{{}*{}}=1
works here.

Is this in Math (the formula editor)? The asterisk has a special function there, but use quotation marks to show the asterisk as such. (i.e. A^{"*"}=1)
