Long time ago, the Celestials visited Xarta and experimented on the genetics of a native anthropoid life form, creating a Deviant race.[1]

The Xartan Deviants became the dominant species of Xarta,[1] waging war against the Baseline Xartans until the genetically stable race was exterminated.[2]

Early Years

A Xartan attempt to invade Earth was ended by Thor whe he hurled their invasion leader Ugarth into space and forced the Xarthans remaining on earth to transform into trees, amongst them Ugarth's son Zano.[3]

Alternate Realities


The Xartans are a long-lived species of shapeshifters.[4] They do not require sleep.[5]

Powers and Abilities


Xartans are metamorphs who can transform into any other kind of living beings, taking on that being's physiology, and even any superhumanoid powers it has, in the process. Xartans can turn invisible and withstand the vacuum of space for brief periods.[1]
