Classification: Semi-humanoid extraterrestrial race
Location/Base of Operations: Planet Dr'azim (see comments), unidentified star system, unidentified galaxy
Known Members: None identified
Affiliations: On some level Deadpool (Jack/"Wade Wilson"), Tiamat;
formerly Messiah (S'met'kth);
Enemies: Messiah (S'met'kth);
on some level Deadpool (Jack/"Wade Wilson"), Tiamat;
First Appearance: Deadpool III#23 (December, 1998)
Powers/Abilities: The Dr'azim people are
semi-humanoid bipeds with hair on their heads as well as paired
antennae, which presumably facilitated communication or at least their
The antennae are somewhat ornate, although it is uncertain if this is natural or added artistically.
The antennae may indicate they are somewhat insectoid, while their hair and their females appearing to have the equivalent of human breasts would make them more likely mammalian. Perhaps they are similar to the insectovorids of Kalilkak in the Microverse.
They appear to have a three-dimensional gem-like structure of unrevealed significance on their foreheads (reminiscent of both Adam Warlock's soul gem and the bindi of Hindu or Jain women, although placed an inch or two higher).
They have technology sufficient to design a signal able to reach beings in space and/or on other planets.
Traits: The Dr'azim are a society living in cities, wearing clothing, and seeking interaction with other races.
Type: Bilaterally symmetric semi-humanoid (possibly insectoid) bipeds
Eyes: Two (on head; it is difficult to tell much about their eyes, as most close-up seems to show a reflection of what they are watching; however, they appear to have no visible irides)
Fingers: Four (plus opposing thumb)
Skin color: Green
Average height: Unrevealed (they did not appear to be exceptional short or tall, but they are not pictured alongside anyone of known height, so their actual size is impossible to identify)
(Deadpool III#23 (fb) - BTS) -
Apparently seeking contact with other races, the Dr'azim people
constructed a large discoid structure to send out signals across space.
(Deadpool III#23 (fb) - BTS) -
For 300 years, the Dr'azim people have prepared for the arrival of
S'met'kth, the Messiah, and the promise of peace and total bliss that
would follow in its wake.
(Deadpool III#23) - The Dr'azim people rejoiced at the approach of S'met'kth, and the entire planet soon shared a moment of ultimate joy and unity, a moment that would last forever.
Hours after S'met'kth's arrival, he/she/it departed, while the people of Dr'azim experienced transcendental bliss, their minds united in perfect harmony but lacking independent thought and free will.
(Deadpool III#25 - BTS) - Tiamat's weapons allowed Deadpool to
apparently slay S'met'kth, who collapsed to the desert floor, but its body was
(Deadpool III#25) - Across the universe, those affected by S'met'kth (those who
hadn't yet perished from failure to feed or take care of themselves; including the Dr'azim) regained
their free will...some of them breathed a sigh of relief while others were crushed beneath the unbearable burden of free thought and responsibility.
Comments: Created by Joe Kelly, Walter McDaniel, Whitney McFarland, Alp Altiner, and John Livesay.
They are called "the Dr'azim
people" and their planet is called "the Dr'azim planet." It's a little
nebulous, but I think both count as the race and planet's names.
Profile by Snood.
The Dr'azim should be distinguished from:
A planet in an unidentified solar system and galaxy, it is home to a race/society seeking to communicate with others.
This race apparently sought to commune with the Messiah (S'met'kth) for 300 years.
While the people rejoiced at S'met'kth's arrival, they were left in a mindless state of bliss until S'met'kth was apparently destroyed by Deadpool.

Note: Obviously the planet has a ring, which appears to be composed largely of orbiting rock. Anything beyond that is purely speculative.
