(Hulk#29/2 (fb) - BTS) - Two vast civilizations nearly as old as the Watchers, the Dargallans and the Kryihd, were at war.
After aeons (see comments),
the Kryihd fell. In desperation, the Kryihd approved a weapon they had
considered unthinkable. They imploded one of their own planets, thus
creating the engine of destruction that would become the Red Hole.
Rather than pulling in matter, however, the Red Hole only pulled in life force, combining and restructuring it until a critical limit was reached.
That dynamo would ultimately eject the Omegex: Imprinting on the target species, the Omegex could find its natives anywhere in the universe. There was no escape from this living weapon, as it found every offspring of its enemy and killed until that species was obliterated.
The Omegex vanquished the Dargallans, but they managed one last sabotage: The Dargallans altered the Red Hole, where the Omegex was to return and be deconstructed.
Instead, the process began anew, and in a few eons it built a new Omegex, that wiped out its original creators, the Kryihd.
(Hulk#28/2 (fb)- BTS / Hulk#29/2) - Seeking vengeance on the Red Hulk (Thaddeus Ross) for having physically struck him, Uatu the Watcher traveled to the region of the Red Hole of Dargalla, leading the forming Omegex to sense the Hulk's energies and travel to Earth in order to destroy him.
Numerous dead aliens lay on the ground at Uatu's feet, including one that might be a Dargallan (bottom left).
Comments: Created by Jeff Parker and Ben Oliver.
Aeon is just a fancy spelling of
eon, which often is used to reference a long period of time for
exaggeration of comedic effect, but it does specifically mean 1 billion
It's possible the Dargallans indeed warred for a billion years, or it could just be hyperbole...
