The Consortium was an intergalactic conglomerate with financial interests on thousands of worlds throughout the Milky Way galaxy which employed various alien species.[1] If a planet violated one of their iron-clad contracts, it forfeited it's self-determination to the Consortium.[2] They possessed both an armada of hundreds of attack spacecraft and ground troops.[3] Worlds that were miniaturized and used as a power source for the city-sized mothership had their inhabitants either recruited or exterminated.[4]

Clash with Earth's Heroes

During the planetary travels of Her, she encountered the Consortium enslaving a population. She fought against them and freed the population. This mean the Consortium brought their full force to bear on the problem. Her, in attempt to escape the Consortium, returned to earth, only to crash land in Toronto. Alpha Flight was called in to investigate and offered to protect her.[1]

The Consortium, having followed Her, began a massive attack on the city. Alpha Flight fought off the first few waves of assault with a minimal amount of damage but the Avengers helped them deal with the final waves.[3]

During the battle, Vindicator teleported half of both teams away to battle Galactus on a far distant planet in another dimension.[2]

Due to the physical laws of the other dimension the combined efforts of the Avengers and Alpha Flight could have beaten Galactus, but instead an arrangement was made. Galactus would spare the Quwrlln and instead devour the Consortium mothership which was attacking Toronto, as their motherships used miniaturized planets as a fuel source. The teams worked together to allow Galactus to eat the Consortium’s mothership, ending the organization.[4]


Equipment: The Consortium had access to a wide variety of alien technology, including; cloaking technology,[1], miniaturization (used a miniaturized planet as a power source).[4]
Transportation: The Consortium’s primary “office” was in a large, saucer-shaped city-sized mothership.[3]
Weapons: Directed energy weapons,[5] energy-leeching dissipator space torpedoes,[1], attack spacecraft.[6]
