Destroyers of the Reaver Swarm in outer space


(Reaver Swarm)


This class of alien invaders was part of the launch of Dark Horse’s Comics Greatest World super-hero setting, back in 1993.

However, we never learned much about the Swarm – the organisation they belong to. But that leaves us with some generic outer space menaces, which is useful too.


  • Group Affiliation: Reaver Swarm.
  • Base Of Operations: Mobile.
  • Height: 6’+ Weight: 240 lbs+

Powers and Abilities

The Destroyers are heavy-duty alien fighters with ultra tech equipment.

As their name indicates, they destroy everything in their path.


The Destroyers are part of the Reaver Swarm, an alien combination of a cult, a rampaging horde and an army. The Swarm is made of various species, and the Destroyers are one such race. It is unrevealed if all members of that race in the Swarm are Destroyers, if other races can be Destroyers, or if members of that race can be something else than Destroyers.

The Destroyers play the role of an advance strike force for the Swarm. They are also sent to deal with renegades such as the Man from the Vortex.


Under the armour, the Destroyers are apparently quite human-like.


Slightly less religious than the Seekers, the Destroyers are businesslike soldiers.

They are quite confident, and rightly so, in their power. And so they will often act alone or in small groups instead of deploying large teams.


“You forget who I am. You forget the power of the Seven !”
