(Captain Marvel I#27 (fb) - BTS) - An unidentified alien was one of the Thanos-Thralls, agents of the nihilist Thanos, on Titan, the largest moon of Saturn.
(Captain Marvel I#27) - When Thanos' father and brother, Mentor (A'Lars) and Eros, joined forces with the Kree Captain Marvel (Mar-Vell) against Thanos and invaded the undefended Hall of Science, they took the inital force (an Aakon, a Rigellian, and possibly an Alpha Centurion), this alerted the main guard, which included the unidentified alien. While Mar-Vell departed to erase Thanos' recordings of his mind and fought the Super-Skrull, Mentor and Eros opposed the main guard. The unidentified alien was on the receiving end of a blast from Mentor.
After Mar-Vell caused an explosion by smashing the fiery Super-Skrull into a computer bank containing the tapes, the remaining Thanos-Thralls panicked and fled.
Comments: Humans wearing costumes similar to these aliens were created by Stan Lee, Steve Ditko, and ;
the actual aliens were were shown by Mike Friedrich, Jim Starlin, and Pablo Marcos.
