Before you overreact, take notice of the fact that you couldn't make us leave if you wanted to. What I propose is this... we will live among you. The people of Earth will not even know we are here. You will not even know we are here. You will not interfere with any matter on Earth. We do not want our presence to be known. We will not attack you... but we will not help you. My people will blend in, live as Humans with Humans. We will intermingle... we will interbreed. This is the only way to ensure our survival of the Viltrumite people. We will restore our ranks over the course of thousands of years. Human DNA has been proven to make near perfect hybrids... the closest thing we have to pure-blooded Viltrumites. Our children and our children's children will join our ranks, their children will have children and our ranks will swell with the infusion of Human DNA. You will allow us the time to restore our numbers... to rebuild our Empire.
~ Thragg to Invincible and Omni-Man.

Thragg is the main antagonist of the Image Comics series Invincible. He serves as the most recurring villain and overarching archenemy of Invincible himself, as well as the most powerful villain he has ever fought.



Thragg was born on Viltrum. He was trained in all manners of combat and bred to be the strongest Viltrumite. After their emperor, Argall was killed by Thaedus, Thragg fought in the Viltrumite civil war, meaning Thragg is thousands of years old. After the battle, The Viltrumites would emerge an unbeatable race led by him. Thragg would be granted the title of Grand Regent, tasked with finding the heir of Argall. He would keep Argall's skull as a reminder of what would happen were the Empire to fall into disarray. The Scourge Virus would be created and planet's population severely depleted and would make him believe that the heir had died. Afterwards, he would cease all attempts to find the heir, feeling that he had earned his place among them.
