(Tales of Suspense I#54/3 (fb)
- BTS) - The Fox-People shared a planet with an unidentified reptilian (or piscine) race, who considered them to be "menacing."
Despite highly advanced weapons and technology, the reptilian race were never able to defeat the Fox-People.
Whether because of the threat of
the Fox-People or otherwise, a group of the reptilians known as the
Planet-Taker Corps sought to conquer other planets.
(Tales of Suspense
I#54/3 - BTS) - Traveling to Earth, Skrang found humanity to be helpless against his advanced
technology, and conquest seemed certain, but he mistakenly assumed an
elderly woman with a fox collar/scarf to be an indication that humanity
was much more powerful than the Fox-People. He then rushed back into his
ship and took off, vowing that he would never again dare to enter this
accursed solar system.
Back on his home planet, Skrang
reported his findings to the chief of the Planet-Taker Corps, who
apparently agreed with his assessment...
(Tales of Suspense
I#54/3) - Meanwhile, a group of Fox-People gathered some distance from the city in which the Planet-Taker Corps were meeting.
Comments: Created by Stan Lee, Larry Lieber, and Dick Ayers.
They are only shown in one image, and only described as powerful and menacing.
If you review Skrang's race's
profile, you see that his people have devastating weapons, with
abilities like liquefying metal, magnetically levitating as well as
obliterating missiles, projecting force fields, electromagnetic nets
able to snare multiple aircraft. rapidly-acting knock out gas, and
disintegrating multiple skyscrapers.
What is/are the Fox People's abilities that Skrang's people are so terrified of them?
they are immensely physically powerful and extremely durable, rendering
them resistant to Skrang's people's weaponry?
Maybe their level of technology is even greater?
Maybe Skrang's people's weaponry's effects are only illusory and the Fox-People are resistant to this?
Maybe the Fox-People can generate irrational fear in their foes?
What is the name of their race and the representatives that we saw?
What is the name of their planet and star system (and from what galaxy do they originate)?
What are the circumstances that led to such diverse races inhabiting the same world?
Deviants vs. Eternals?
Mutants vs. normals?
I need more stories about the Fox-People!
