Tales to Astonish Vol 1 5 001.jpg

Lithodia Rexians are a silicon-based extraterrestrial race hailing from the planet Lithodia Rex. Being a stone-like race they often mistaken for Kronans. They invade planets by placing sleeper agents until the time of the invasion. One such group was placed on Easter Island in the Pacific Ocean of Earth.[1]

Easter Island

A pilot crash-landed on Easter Island where he observed the statues rise out of the ground and discuss invasion plans of their home planet and the enslavement of Earthmen. He fled the pursuit of the statues and attempted to warn the proper authorities, but no one believed him. Eventually he began to doubt his story as well, and unobserved, the statues who had been following him return to Easter island safe in the knowledge that no one would believe such an outlandish tale.[1]


Thorg was a sleeper agent placed on Earth on Easter Island. Thorg was accidentally awakened by Linus who convinced him that the Island he was on was the whole of humanity and that he didn't need his fellow agents on the island to conquer it. Thorg signaled his masters, and the next day they arrived on Earth, Linus threw dynamite into the island's volcano. The resulting explosion destroyed Thorg and his friends.[2]

Harry Dawes, an escaped convict, wound up on Easter Island where a man he assumes was a native asked him for help in locating a parchment which, when read, would reawaken the statues which are really aliens in suspended animation. He eventually located the parchment, but when he tried to make the aliens follow his orders they refused, and he attempts to get the native to help him escape the island. The native removed a mask to reveal himself as the captain of the Stone-Men.[3]

When Loki crash-landed on Earth he found himself in the Pacific Ocean. Using the powers of the Norn Stones he created a tsunami to lure his brother Thor there. He then used the Norn Stones to awaken the Lithodia Rexians. Thor defeated them with ease and forced the stone men back into the ground.[4]

Deadpool traveled to Easter Island along with the Cosmic Baby. It was there the Fin Fang Foom and Mangog awoke the Lithodia Rexians from their slumber and tried to get them to bow before them.[5]

A Lithodia Rexian known as Xarggu was confronted by Spectrum and Captain Marvel on an island in the South Pacific while the former was being offered a spot in the Ultimates.[6]
