** And the Shi'ar, birdlike aliens with a tendency toward violently conquering other empires and stealing their culture (I.E. Space Romans). They usually tend to bother the ComicBook/XMen the most, given that their empress married Professor X. Generally, they're portrayed as more benevolent (or at least less antagonistic) than the Kree and the Skrulls, as their empire is hegemonic. However, they're violently afraid of a cosmic entity they worship called the Phoenix, and are not afraid to murder entire bloodlines to prevent anyone hosting it. Additionally, their mythology teaches that their main gods were forcibly married against their will, but ultimately learned to love each other and form a dynasty, leading the Shi'ar forcibly conquer and "improve" the lives of other races. Also, Lilandra, the empress who married Professor X, was the WhiteSheep of her violently insane family. They've got an elite guard who look [[ComicBook/TheLegionOfSuper-Heroes strangely familiar]]...

** The Kree, fascistic, imperialist xenophobes, ruled by a gestalt intelligence that's so smart it's worshipped as a living god. They're the ones who started the war with the Skrulls, who favoured their sister-race, the Coati (a bunch of pleasant plant-aliens). They messed around with early human DNA, resulting in the Inhumans. Staggeringly, the Kree are usually displayed as one of the more tolerable alien empires out that, which shows just how much of a CrapsackWorld cosmic Marvel can be. They also produced the original Captain Marvel, who fell in love with humanity and decided we were worth protecting.
