ElanThe Elan originated on the planet Elanis of the Beta Scorpi V star system of the Milky Way. They evolved from an insectoid-like mullosk. Their government is a planetwide union of democratic nations.

After millenia of global peace the Elan abandoned military technology and focused in the development of both their Utopian society and their racial powers.

Unfortunately, this was not to last. Skrull envoys, hearing of the powers of the Elan, travelled to Elanis and began negotiating trade for weapons. Due to over 10,000 years of peace, the Elan had no weapons. Furthermore, they could not even imagine what a weapon looked like. Furious as the supposed ignorance of the Elan, the Skrull envoys ordered their starships to attack the planet. Many Elan were killed. The planet and its inhabitants were eventually saved by the Fantastic Four.

The greatest threat to the Elan race appeared over 10 years later with the appearance of a Vorm named Star Stalker II. This Star Stalker laid waste to entire Elan cities and drained many Elan of their life energies. It was only with the help of Power Pack, Nova of the Heralds of Galactus, and the Elan known on Earth as the Infant Terrible that Star Stalker II was defeated. The damage, however, was done. The Elan, who once numbered 1 billion, now number 2.7 million scattered across the Milky Way. There once Utopian society and non-violent ways have ended. They are now in the process of training a defensive force to protect their race. Their ships have warp-drive engines. The Elan consider Earth to be mostly harmless and a safe place to leave your kids. The Elan are a friendly, open people although they seldom seek contact with other races.
