before work began on my first stint on WONDER WOMAN, i had to redesign the villains appear in the storyline. while the khunds had appeared in previous issues of dc comics, i was allowed to “update” them a bit. i used reference dug up from ancient chinese battle armour and infused a ram into the designs.
Here’s where the scary part comes in: In the comics, specifically Invasion, the Dominators were not alone in coming to Earth. More the politicians and planners, the Dominators assembled a coalition of other alien races, including the Thanagarians, the Khunds, and the Daxamites, to invade Earth.
That last race should sound familiar: Mon-El (Chris Wood) hails from Daxam. Could the reveal in the Supergirl winter finale that an unidentified alien race is hunting Mon-El be connected? Here’s a theory: That mysterious alien race could be among the coalition, who sent Mon-El ahead to Earth-38 to observe the planet before the armada arrives. After all, the Daxamites in the comics join the coalition in the first place as observers only before eventually joining the fight.
