The Saurians were created when the first nuclear bomb impacted the New Mexico mountain range and a number of lizard species were irradiated and genetically altered. It took less than a decade for them to evolve and become bipedal digitigrades; as well as develop their own language and culture. They built an underground city to hide from man's superior technology.
Carol Danvers went to New Mexico to investigate the disappearance of fellow Woman Magazine's reporter Sharon Cole. The only clue that was left was a tape recorder, with a message that suggested that something has captured her out in the desert. Danvers was taken to the site by a police officer, but he disappeared as well. Becoming Ms. Marvel, she was attacked by the Saurians. Their leader, Aracht'yr, was shocked by her power and told one of his soldiers to Haemon to knock her out. Haemon complied with an eye beam blast that was strong enough to render Ms. Marvel unconscious. The Saurians took her to their home, a secret civilization hidden in the mountains of the Arizona desert. They dumped her in a holding cell where she found Sharon and the other people who went missing. Ms. Marvel escaped with ease and battled her way through the Saurians all the way to their leader Aracht'yr. He refused to release them as now they know of them the humans would return and destroy them the Saurians attacked Ms Marvel and she killed their greatest warrior the Guardian. Now showing her true power Aracht'yr conceded, and for that Ms. Marvel promised that they will keep their society a secret. After returning home, she finds a present from the Lizard People waiting in her apartment - a small lizard to remind her that she holds the future of the Lizard People in her hands.
When the Dire Wraiths attacked the Saurians, Serpentyne swore vengeance. Rom who was hunting them at the time on earth encountered Serpentyne. He however related his tale to Rom of his people, of which he is the last thanks to the invasion of the Dire Wraiths. Serpentyne demanded Rom’s Neutralizer and when the Spaceknight refused, he attacks him. In the battle, Serpentyne slipped and accidentally impaled himself with a makeshift spear. Before he passed, he repented of his attack on Rom as the madness has now left him.
