Classification: Extraterrestrial

Location/Base of Operations: Aedi (planet)

Known Members: None

Affiliations: Allies of Silver Surfer (Norrin Radd)

Appearances: Silver Surfer III#32 (December, 1989)

Powers/Abilities: The Aedians possess certain telepathic powers, only a few of which have been observed. They can sense the presence of others within their planet's orbit. They are empathic, able to sense the pain or emotions of others. They can project their astral selves, even into orbit.

    They are thin humanoid bipeds, with an elongated cranium and no obvious external nasal structure.

Traits: The Aedians are a benevolent race, willing to sacrifice themselves in order to help others.

(Silver Surfer III#32) - The demon Mephisto infected the Silver Surfer with Hlavac's Disease, causing hallucinations, which prompted him to attack and destroy anything and everything he encountered. Another race, the Pheragots, notified the Surfer that he could find a cure via a radioactive ore found on the planet Aedi. The Surfer realized that in order to cure a being of his unique physiology, it would take all of the ore on the planet, which could cause a chain reaction and destroy the planet.

The Aedians sensed him as he struggled with the disease (and Mephisto's goading). Two representatives appeared before him and, in consideration of the goodness he accomplishes across the universe, volunteered their planet's ore to cure him, even if it might destroy they and their planet. However, the Surfer came to his senses and refused to sacrifice the Aedians or their planet, and managed to overcome the disease through other means.

Comments: Created by Jim Valentino and Ron Frenz

    In Galacta: Daughter of Galactus#1, Galacta consumed some A'askvarii. I would not think the character and stories in Galacta are part of Reality-616, but that has yet to be definitively confirmed anywhere.
    For the record, around that same time, she also feeds on
some Badoon, H'ylthri, Tribbitites, Shi'ar, Pheragots, Tektons, Herms, Kosmosians, Laxidazians, Centaurians, A'askvarii, Flb'dbi, Ul'lula'ns, and R'malk'i.
