'''''The Metabarons''''', also known as '''''The Saga of the Metabarons''''' is a [[{{Tragedy}} tragic]] SpaceOpera comic book series written by Creator/AlejandroJodorowsky and illustrated by Creator/JuanGimenez. It expands on a supporting character who appeared in ''ComicBook/TheIncal'' to flesh out the backstory of his entire family. Like the rest of the [[MetabaronsUniverse Jodoverse]], ''The Metabarons'' draws heavily on ideas Jodorowsky developed for his failed ''Film/{{Dune}}'' film project.

The series follows the five Metabarons of the Castaka family - perfect warriors sworn to victory at all costs. Each Metabaron (after the first) is maimed, usually by their father, has the maimed part replaced or technologically altered, and eventually kills their father in single combat.

* FutureSlang: The prefixes paleo- and bio- are frequently attached to words without any real rhyme or reason, resulting in absurd terms like "Paleo-Christ!", "bio-crap," "paleo-wedding," and even "bio-infant." Tonto and Lothar attach robo- to the beginning of many words when they're referring to each other.

* SingleLineOfDescent: Very much the case with the Castakas. A couple of Metabarons actually end up having more than one child, but no collateral family lines are ever formed. [[spoiler:Othon's first son, Bari, is accidentally killed by him when still a teenager, and Steelhead's son (Aghora's twin) dies at birth.]]

* WhiteHairedPrettyBoy / WhiteHairedPrettyGirl: All of the Metabarons have long white hair if they have any. Two wives of the Metabarons, Edna and Honorata, also have white hair. Steelhead has white hair after he has the poet Krleza's head implanted on his body.

* ShowyInvincibleHero: Starting with Aghnar, the Metabarons become godlike in their powers. They are able to win against impossible odds, to the point of RefugeInAudacity, especially when Aghora slaughters an entire ''universe'' in a mirror dimension. The dramatic tension of the series comes largely from the horrible tragedy that continuously befalls the Metabaron clan.
