Added DiffLines:

* Of the most frequently appearing alien races in [[Creator/DCComics DC Comics]], culturally speaking, the militaristic Thanagarians are the Stouts, the Martians are now the High Men (after having been the Stouts in the past), the godlike Oans are the Fairies, the Rannians are the Mundanes (after having been the High Men in the past), and the 5th Dimensional imps are the Cutes. On the [[Creator/DCComics DC Comics planet Earth]], the now-warlike Amazons are the Stouts (though they had been the High Men in Golden Age and Silver Age), the Atlanteans are the High Men, Zatanna's Homo Magi race are the Fairies, the Humans are the Mundanes, and the Feitherans were the Cutes until they were forgotten. The Gorillas of Gorilla City alternate between High Men (when the story's focus is on King Solivar) and Stouts (in those stories when Grodd manages to take control of the city and incite a militaristic panic).

The Deviants, enemies of the Eternals, are also Stouts and have a great deal in common with the Atlanteans (both rely heavily upon huge [[Creator/JackKirby Kirbyesque]] war machines, giant beasts, and underwater cities).

* In the [[Franchise/MarvelUniverse Marvel Comics intergalactic scene]], of the most commonly seen alien races, the Kree are the Stouts (a [[ProudWarriorRaceGuy Proud Warrior Race]] with strength surpassing normal humans), the Shi'ar are High Men (both BirdPeople and SpaceElves), the Skrull are an ugly version of Fairies ([[ShapeShifter shapeshifting]] is a common trait of the Fair Folk in myth and folklore), and the Humans oddly enough are often treated as a cross between Mundanes and Cutes by the rest of the galaxy (when not treated as a pest needing to be exterminated).
