Gotta catch 'em all challenge #13 - Marvel aliens

A small one. Name the race of the aliens in this crowd shot (some may be races not seen elsewhere, so impossible to name, but many are not).

Re: Gotta catch 'em all challenge #13 - Marvel aliens

Since there's been no guesses for over a day, a few clues seem to be in order.

First, the image is from 1973; as such, all the aliens must have appeared in Marvel titles between 1961 (the debut of the FF) and 1973.
Of the five aliens remaining, all bar two have been positively identified; one of those two is tentatively identified.
Two of the aliens we don't know the race name, but they can be identified by where/when they appeared or who they were seen working for.
The armored guy is colored differently than the others of his cohort, so look for the armor design, not the blue.

I'll need a mention of their (kind of) earlier appearance, since all the aliens depicted are Thanos-Thralls.

Members of this race (or stuntmen impersonating them) first appeared in Amazing Spider-Man #2.

That's the one. How the stunt-men came up with an alien design that actually matches real aliens is a question yet to be answered.

Strictly true, but since all of them are Thanos-Thralls, I can't count that answer for them, or any of the other remaining aliens. And this one definitely does have another, earlier appearance.

Wild guess: 13 might be a race whose appearance inspired Kronos and Mentor when they resurrected Arthur Douglas as Drax the Destroyer.

Maybe, but I'm not ready to confirm that one.

Re: Gotta catch 'em all challenge #13 - Marvel aliens

Okay, over 24 hours without a guess, and only three left (maybe two, if we assume one is based on Drax), and of those, only one other, number 5, has been positively identified by others outside of this contest. So if 5 is identified I'll call this one done, though it will remain open for anyone who manages to get the others. Time for a clue.

5 - look to the future, but the future is not golden.

Re: Gotta catch 'em all challenge #13 - Marvel aliens

Wild guess, but since it's one of the major races, is 13 a Kree?
