Humanoid RaceHome


MekkanThe Mekkans are a race of sentient humanoid robots from the planet Mekka (formerly known as Maarin) in the Kirtham II star system of the Milky Way Galaxy. They were created by an Earth-like race called the Maarinites. The Maarinites built the Mekkanites as servants. They gradually transformed their world into a planetwide mass of metal (similar to Cybertron). The Maarinites were exterminated by an alien virus. The robots were then free to build a society of their own. For centuries afterwards, the Mekkans led lives of quiet serenity.

Unfortunately, the ambitions of Skrull warlords would shatter that peace. Many Mekkans were captured by Skrull raiders and reprogrammed to kill. Hundreds were sent as shocktroops against rival warlords as well as planets the Skrulls wanted to conquer. This "slavery" was finally ended by a rebelliion led by the Mekkan known as Torgo and the Fantastic Four's Thing.

As a result of the rebellion, Torgo was given the title of "1st Among Equals" or "Prime" of all Mekkans. (Torgo's role as "Prime" is equal to that of the U.S. President.) Mekkans have a democratic society. They are highly advanced, especially in the fields of Robotics and Cybernetics. Mekkans number an estimated 1.7 billion.

Mekkans have a neutral attitude towards Earth. They regard the Fantastic Four as heroes and ambassadors of Earth.
