Alien Species

The A'askvarii are a race of green, white-eyed, bald humanoids with octopoid traits, with three tentacles sprouting out from either shoulder in place of arms, with suction grippers on the ends of each tentacle.


They are bipedal, with each leg ending in a three-toed taloned foot. They are indigenous to the planet O'erlanii, the third planet in orbit around the star Deneb. A'askvarii possess gills in place of a nose, and have closely-spaced, needle-like teeth. A fairly advanced race, they have rudimentary warp-drive capability.

Culture and society[]

They are "ruled" by a benign anarchic government, which remains leaderless, although they do have a representative of their species in Derath'ath Machlan'n. This culture of theirs remains unstructured, and they are pacifistic and independent, remaining neutral to other planets.


  • The A'askvarii first appeared in Black Goliath #5 (November 1976).
  • They are known to exist only within the Earth-616 Dimension.
  • In the MCU, there's a similar species called the A'askavariian that come from planet A'askavariia and are said to have tentacles full of sharp teeth.
