ComicVine has a comprehensive list of Alien races and this got me thinking... what about a list of non-human races or groups who live on Earth? For example the Inhumans, the Atlanteans and of course Mutants. So I got to researching and created the list/concept of Clandestine races myself. I contemplated calling the concept Hidden Races at first but a lot of these groups aren't hidden at all - Mutants being the obvious one. Obviously these are only the ones I know so it would be awesome if fellow Viners started adding to this list and tagging it to comics as well so the list can really be comprehensive. Plus a lot of these groups and races haven't got wiki pages so there's a lot of work to be done and points to be gained!
Whilst randomly browsing through ComicVine (as I do on most days), I came across the Aliens Concept page. This is an informative page describing the role aliens have played in comics as well as listing alien races from major publishers. However there was no list of Marvel aliens! Of course being a Marvel fan (Marvelite?) I couldn’t let this injustice be! So I embarked on a project to research as many alien races and their major characters across the Marvel Universe as I could (be bothered to).
It took a few weeks but I’ve added a list of Marvel alien races, a major character from each race where I’ve found one, as well as links to the alien races and characters where available. I’ve also created both team and character pages for many of the races and key characters (listed below). Additionally I’ve also come across numerous pages that were created as “characters” but should have been “teams”. I’ve recreated these correctly and listed the incorrect ones as DUPEs. I’ll post these on the Dupe forum shortly.
Now it’s up to fellow Viners to add aliens (Marvel, DC or otherwise) to this page so we can make it really comprehensive. Also the two lists below are of recently created pages and they’re just waiting to give you wiki points so get cracking!
