These weapons are removable and can be replaced with other such attachments. They are covered in a dense carapace, have exposed brains, and a pair of large, razor-sharp fangs.

Traits: Little is known about the Membros, though they are presumably warriors.

(Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe: Fantastic Four 2005: Psycho-Man) - Membros were enslaved by Psycho-Man aboard his Worldship.

(Micronauts I#17 / Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe: Fantastic Four 2005) - The Psycho-Man sent Antrons, Membros, and Reptos to battle the Micronauts and Fantastic Four. The heroes eventually escaped the Worldship, though Jasmine was slain by a Repto.

    Membros were toys in the Mego Micronaut line, and they were confirmed as part of the Marvel Multiverse in the pages of the Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe: Fantastic Four 2005: Psycho-Man entry.

    The Micronaut toys described Membros as "the Slithery Skinned Invader from the Remote World of Visceros." Membros were active within the Microverse Proper (the Spiral Path, contained within the Spacewall), but that doesn't mean that they couldn't have originated outside the Spacewall. Perhaps numbers of them traveled through Breachpoint to colonize parts of the Spiral Path.
