My submission for #firstappearancefriday : Silver Surfer 2 (1968) first appearance of the Badoon. Often overlooked issue of the early Silver Surfer run, issues 1, 3 and 4 are more in demand. But if the Badoon are featured in any future GoTG movies, this issue should see a price jump. Plus it’s got a cool purple cover!
The Badoon are older than the Kree and the Skrulls. There was a natural hatred between the two genders, and they fought each other in long gender wars. The males quickly won, and placed the weaker females in captivity. In time, the males developed technology and abandoned Lotiara, returning only when their mating drive made it necessary. The males became conquerors of worlds, while the females became pacifists, content to remain in peace on their homeworld and ignorant of the males' star-spanning empire.
At the time of the Annihilation Wave the Badoon Empire controlled 37.7% of the Milky Way Galaxy. Despite this, the Badoon are considered a minor species. The time traveler Major Victory warned the Guardians of the Galaxy that they need to take the Badoon seriously, as soon they'll become the greatest military threat in the galaxy.
I have 2 copies, 1 in FN condition in my personal collection (NFS) and a lower mid-grade copy priced at $20 plus $6 shipping if anyone is interested. •
