History:
(
Asgardians of the Galaxy#2 (fb) - BTS) - The Netredi worshipped gods who offered sacrifices to their worshippers: Every 10,000 years, the gods of the Netredi slaughtered each other in honor of those who loved them. Blood rained down from the Heavens, and the Netredi cast aside their garments and danced naked in the downpour. netredi_race-aotg-face-eyesopen

    Aside from the bloody rain, the Netredi rarely saw evidence of their gods' presence, but with their great sacrifice, the gods proved their existence, and the renewed faith of the followers birthed them once more.

    Because of the endless cycle of death and rebirth, the Netredi had youthful interpretations of their gods. 

(Asgardians of the Galaxy#2 (fb) - BTS) - Nebula, the alleged granddaughter of Thanos, obtained the Naglfar Beacon, a horn forged by the Dwarves of Nidavellir under the direction of Loki Laufeyson that would allow one to summon and control the dead gods from past incarnations of each pantheon (as most pantheons had creation and rebirth myths).netredi_race-aotg-survivor-deathglow

(Asgardians of the Galaxy#2 (fb) - BTS) - Nebula used the Naglfar Beacon to summon undead past incarnations of the gods of the Netredi.

(Asgardians of the Galaxy#2) - The Netredi's morning prayer was interrupted by the arrival of the undead Netredi gods.

(Asgardians of the Galaxy#2 (fb) - BTS) - The undead Netredi gods slaughtered the Netredi.

(Asgardians of the Galaxy#2 - BTS) - The Asgardians of the Galaxy (Angela Odinsdotter, Brunnhilde the Valkyrie, the Destroyer, Anabelle Riggs, Skurge the Executioner, Throg/Simon Walterson, Thunderstrike/Kevin Masterson) traveled to Netredeen in search of the Naglfar Beacon.

(Asgardians of the Galaxy#2) - The Asgardians of the Galaxy found the slaughtered Netredi, and the only one still alive warned of nightmares before perishing.

(Asgardians of the Galaxy#2-3 - BTS) - The undead gods of the Netredi then appeared and confronted the Asgardians of the Galaxy.

    The undead Netredi gods fought fiercely, delivering some injuries and strikes against the Asgardians team, but they were otherwise torn apart by the Asgardians team.netredi_race-aotg-survivor-dead

Comments: Created by Cullen Bunn and Matteo Lolli.

    I don't know that we're supposed to believe the undead Netredi gods wiped out ALL of the Netredi, as we only saw one village slaughtered...or...perhaps there was only a single village of perhaps dozens to hundreds of Netredi existing on the planet?

CLARIFICATIONS:
The Netredi should be distinguished from:


NETREDEEN

*

netredi_race-aotg-netredeen-space
      Netredeen is a planet in an unidentified star system and an unidentified galaxy (as far as I saw).  It is (was? home to the Netredi, who worshipped a race of gods that were part of a regular 10,000 cycle of death and rebirth.

     Using the Naglfar Beacon, the space pirate Nebula brought undead past incarnations of these gods to Netredeen, where they slaughtered at least a village of Netredi, if not the entire population.

     The Asgardians of the Galaxy came to Netredeen in search of the Naglfar Beacon, and they were attacked by but slew/destroyed the Netredi gods.
