The Xartans come from the planet Xarta IV in the Zugano star system. They are ruled by military dictatorships that view Earth as a target for conquest. They have achieve warp drive technology and have ion-beam weapon systems installed in their starships.
Eons ago, Xarta IV was visited by the Celestials, who performed experiments upon the population which resulted in a deviant race who could shapeshift. Ultimately, the deviant sub-species became the dominant race, and drove the others to extinction.
In the past 20 years, the Xartans have secretly invaded Earth and used their shapeshifting powers to cause confusion by assuming the identities of law enforcement and/or government officials. Their plans were thwarted by the heroics of Thor and X-Factor.
Due to the constant warfare on Xartan IV and against other races, there are only 4.3 million Xartans left.
