The Viltrumites are the main antagonists of the Image comic book series, Invincible. They are a race of alien warriors and planetary conquerors who seek to conquer planets and interbreed with other races in order to save their race from extinction.


Omni-Man explaining the true origin and history of the Viltrumites to his son.

Originating from the planet of Viltrum, the Viltrumites thrived as a society of totalitarian warriors and conquerors for centuries as they ruled their planet with an unbridled iron fist for thousands of years. However amongst the population there was one Viltrumite by the name of Thaedus who begin to question if his race was truly perfect as he started to see the faults and evil within their warmongerings culture and cold logic. Determined to surmount his people before they could start a galaxy wide war campaign he killed the previous emperor, Argall and fled the planet as he became the first real rebel against his race.

Thrown into utter disarray with the death of their leader, the Viltrumites engaged in a civil war against each other to kill off the weak. After at least a century, the population was cut in half but was made into an unbeatable race of vicious warriors led by the new emperor Thragg, a Viltrumite who was trained in all manners of combat techniques and styles as he was bred to be the strongest amongst them and lead them. The Viltrumites later established the Viltrum Empire and turned their attention towards to the universe as they start to conquer planet after planet. In order to stop his people from over taking, Thaedus founded the Coalition of Planets in order to combat their tyrannical ways as they begin a centuries long proxy war.

The Scourge Virus

Desperate to stop his people as they continued to advance in the galaxy, Thaedus and Coalition of Planets created a highly infectious bioweapon called the Scourge Virus. The virus infected almost the entirety of the Viltrumite population, 99.9% of the population dying from infection or as a result of the virus causing Viltrumite strength and invulnerability to become greatly diminished.
