Brotherhood of Badoon[src]

They were notable for having a gender schism, resulting in two separate societies:

Additionally, a third major group, known as the Moord or the Fifth Caste of the Badoon, were Badoon tinkered by the Kree similarly to Earth's Inhumans. Those included Badoon of both genders. Like the other components of the Universal Inhuman, the Fifth Caste was led by a Queen.

The planet Sqazzl was in Badoon space.[5]

Badoon have long been allies of Thanos, enslaving lesser evolved civilizations across the galaxy, who were put to work for Thanos as well as the Badoon's barbaric needs. Slaves were taken to their homeworld and placed under the control of the slave trade council.[6] Aliens were kidnapped from their worlds and put them to work on their prison planet.[7]



The Badoon were older than the Kree and the Skrulls. There was a natural hatred between the two genders, and they fought each other in long gender wars. Eventually, the males won, placing the females in captivity. In time, the males developed technology and abandoned Lotiara, returning only when their mating drive made it necessary. The males became conquerors of worlds, while the females became pacifists, content to remain in peace on their homeworld and ignorant of the males' star-spanning empire.[3]

Among the Brotherhood's attempted conquests were the Zen-Whoberis and the extra-dimensional world of Polemachus.[8] They were known to form alliances with the Brood[9] and the Kree.[10] At the time of the Annihilation Wave, the Badoon controlled 37.7% of the Milky Way galaxy.[11] The Badoon had recently warred with the Skrulls and Kree.[10][12]

Badoon Society

At least some Badoon show respect "any male that can tolerate his female, much less defend her".[13]


Please find some words or sentences in Badoon on this page.


The Badoon are highly superstitious, and fear both demons and possession.[14][15]

Some Badoon (including the Centaurian "Badoon Half-Breeds") seemingly believe in so-called Swamp Gods, sometimes evocating them.[16][14][15][17][18]

Among the known Badoon Gods was Voord Bloodeye, God of Beheading, who was killed 500 years ago by Gorr the God Butcher (it is unknown if he was of the Swamp Gods).[19]


The Brotherhood's currency is the Kreull.[20]


The Badoon were a reptilian species.[21]

They possess inner eyelids.[1]


The Badoon were able to breed with the female Centaurians.[22]

Alternate realities


The Brotherhood of Badoon attacked the worlds of the United Federation of Earth in the early 31st century, starting with Centauri-IV in 3006 A.D.[23] and conquering Earth and the solar colonies on Mercury, Jupiter and Pluto in the year 3007.[24] Earth was liberated in 3015 by the Guardians of the Galaxy and the surviving humans of Earth who had recently been freed from captivity by time-travelling members of the Defenders. The defeated males were then removed from Earth by the Sisterhood of Badoon.[25]


The Badoon were seen on the Mojo Ensign-Class Warp-Ship's Arena 6C as audience members of "Mojo-Pocalypse."[26]


The Badoon appeared in many other realities.

Level of Technology

The Brotherhood were capable of faster-than-light space travel and also possessed personal cloaking technology. They employed a hand-held particle gun called the 'basic weapon'. There was also a large, muscular cyborg-like being sometimes used in personal combat called the Monster of Badoon.[21] Although males typically wore minimal clothing, some soldiers wore an explosive 'frag-thong'[10] that destroyed approximately ten surrounding enemies once a Badoon was shot down.
According to Reed Richards, the Badoon were a "Type II civilization",[27] presumably according to the Kardashev scale.

Cultural Traits

The males were militaristic, but the females were pacifists. While the male Badoon were brutal to other races and violent toward their females (and vice versa), the Badoon were gentle and courteous with their pets and beasts of burden.[3] Badoon were a patient race, but their patience had limits.[28] It was a race of hoarders, who gathered objects which they stored in vaults.[29] Badoon had a low opinion of mammals, and believed that mammals were not to be fought but slaughtered.[8] The males among the Badoon enjoyed the hunting and taking of captives, and the fear their victims experienced delighted the Badoon. It was thought of as a sport and enjoyed hunting those foes who gave them a challenge.[21]
