Publication history

The Fomor first appeared in Avengers #225-226 (November-December 1982), and were created by Steven Grant and Greg LaRocque.

The characters subsequently appear in Marvel Comics Presents #30 (October 1989), Black Knight #3-4 (August-September 1990), and Avengers vol. 3 #1 (February 1998).

Fictional race biography

In ancient times, the Fomor were cast into the Dark Realm, a dimension beyond Otherworld/Avalon. In the 12th century, the Fomor finally returned to Otherworld and laid siege to it. Hearing tales of the 20th century Avengers from the time-travelling Black Knight, the wizard Amergin brought them to Avalon to help defeat the Fomor.[1]

The Fomor continued to trouble the people of Avalon in a number of subsequent plots in the 20th century. Members of the Fomor aided Mordred the Evil and Morgan le Fay in a plot to take over and reshape Earth.[2] The Fomor laid siege once more to Avalon, but were this time dispelled by Leir and Caber.[3] Morgan Le Fay again recruited the Fomor to delay the Avengers in her pursuit of the Twilight Sword.[4]

Known Fomor include:

  • Balor
  • Bres
  • Cethlann (Balor's wife, who has superhuman strength)
  • Dulb (the Fomor's weapons-maker)
  • Elathan (leader of the Fomor, father of Bres, and capable of firing energy blasts and commanding tempests)
  • Indech (a slime-like monster)
  • Tethra (who has a tough, scaly hide)
