unidentified alien race
Classification: Humanoid extraterrestrial race
Location/Base of Operations: Unrevealed
Known Members: Grand Procurer (unidentified, deceased)
Affiliations: None known
Enemies: Man on the Wall (Nick Fury)
First Appearance: Original Sin#5 (September, 2014)
Carnivorous beings, they possess clawed digits and large tusks
protruding from their upper jaw, as well as long, semi-erect pinnae
(external ears) and a pair of thin antennae extending perhaps 6" from
the top of their heads.
They also have notably lean bodies, with prominent pelvic bone structure.
They presumably had advanced
space-travel and weapons technology as well as super-powered defense
systems (as they criticized humanity's levels as primitive or
underdeveloped (at least circa 1958)).
Traits: They celebrated a certain "harvest
time," during which time they enjoyed feasting on new alien races
discovered by their Grand Procurer.
They particularly enjoyed carbon-based life-forms, whom they found to be delectable, given the proper seasoning.
They seemed to have some sort of monarchy-type of government, as the Grand Procurer referred to the ruling council as "My Lords."
Type: Bilaterally symmetric semi-humanoid-porcine bipeds
Eyes: Two (on head; solid red color seen)
Fingers: Two (plus opposing thumb)
Skin color: Brown
Average height: Unrevealed
(Original Sin#5 (fb) - BTS) -
The Grand Procurer discovered and evaluated Earth, determining that
their defenses were limited and that they would be well-suited for his
race's Harvest Time.
(Original Sin#5 (fb)) <Circa
1958 or sometime presumably not long thereafter> - As his race's
Harvest Time approached, another of his race asked the Grand Procurer
what succulent new fruit he had found hanging among the branches of the
The Grand Procurer noted with pleasure that he
had found a "newly ripened" world, with barely a billion years of
He further noted that their interplanetary capabilities were primitive; their greatest weapons were projectile- and fission-based; and that they had barely even manifested any preternatural mutations, let alone enough to constitute any sort of viable super-powered defense-system.
The Grand Procurer thusly predicted a quick and thorough harvest, and he further noted that these were carbon-based life-forms, which they knew -- given the proper seasoning -- to be quite delectable.
He concluded by presenting his lords with the official menu for the coming season, "I give you Eart--"
And he was interrupted by a fatal blast to his
head, courtesy of Nick Fury, the newly appointed Man on the Wall,
protecting Earth from alien threats.
With the Grand Procurer dead, the "lords" present fled the room in terror.
Comments: Created by Jason Aaron and Mike Deodato.
As they noted humanity to be "newly ripened" as it had "barely a billion years of multicellular evolution," they are presumably much older...how much older? I doubt we will ever know...
These guys were shown only for a
few panels, and they served to demonstrate how Nick Fury, as the Man on
the Wall, proactively targeted those who threatened Earth.
Would have been nice for them to have been unidentified...
They are certainly
extraterrestrial, but whether they exist in Earth's universe or whether
they are extradimensional as well is unrevealed.
