Dimension X Aliens


The sinister Dimension X Aliens

History


The Titans investigated an incident where high school students were being kidnapped by aliens from Dimension X and were being replaced by duplicates. The high school was a base for a plan of alien takeover. Kid Flash used his vibration powers to sever the link between earth and Dimension X.

The treachery of these aliens resurfaced soon after. The aliens backed a criminal organization (headed by a man referred to as “The Fat Man”) that tried to pave the way for their eventual plan of invasion. The aliens tried to release a monstrous creature known as Meroul Being from their dimension. Their plan was thwarted by The Teen Titans with the aid of the costumed hero known as Joshua.

The Teen Titans would battle the Dimension X aliens once more. In the ensuing battle, The Teen Titans discovered another dimension, with one sole sentient being. This sentient being aided the Titans in the form of an archer (in imitation of Speedy) and drove the Dimension X aliens back to their own world. This sentient being assured the Titans that these Dimension X Aliens will not bother them again.

Years later, The Dimension X aliens attempted another invasion of earth, only to come into conflict with Booster Gold. Booster battled the X-Aliens to thwart their plans, until he found himself in a double-bind: he could save his sister’s life, or stop the invasion of Earth! Sadly, Booster’s sister Michelle perished as Booster defeated the aliens.
