Circa 10,000 BC, to avenge himself from Captain Dalvalte who tortured him, left him for dead and stole his daughters, Reimos allegedly entered in contact with the Old Ones, the Black Gods of R'Lyeh, the Goat with a Thousand Young and the children of Great Cthulhu, who offered him his spider-infested castle.
- The Black Gods of R'lyeh were created by Robert E. Howard in "Worms of the Earth" (Weird Tales; November, 1932), adapted in Marvel Comics in Savage Sword of Conan #16 (December, 1976) and #17 (February, 1977). R'lyeh was created by H.P. Lovecraft in "Call of Cthulhu" (Weird Tales; June, 1928).
- The "Black Gods" of the Pre-Cataclysmic Age were mentioned by Robert E. Howard in "The Curse of the Golden Skull" (1928), adapted in Conan the Barbarian #37 (April, 1974). The Black Gods aren't mentioned in that adaptation.
- It is unknown if the Thing from R'lyeh, an Old One, was part of the Black Gods of R'Lyeh, Old Ones as well.
- R'lyeh was originally wrote with a "l" minuscule letter. In comics, it is unknown how it is written (due to bubble texts being written exclusively in capital letters), but in the Demons' entry of the Marvel Zombies Handbook #1, it is written "R'Lyeh", with a capital "L".
