The Badoon were a reptilian alien species. They were notable for having a gender schism, resulting in two separate societies; the Brotherhood of Badoon (ruled by a 'Brother Royal') and the Sisterhood of Badoon (ruled by a Queen).
The Brotherhood lived on the planet Moord, while the Sisterhood resided on the Badoon homeworld of Lotiara (Capella II, also known as 'Swampworld'), 42.2 light years from Earth. The planet Sqazzl was in Badoon space. The Brotherhood's currency was called 'kreull'.
The Badoon were 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. Eventually, the males won, placing the 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.
Earth fought a war with the Badoon in the 2990s until both Earth and its colonies were conquered in the year 3007. They were liberated by the Guardians of the Galaxy and the intervention of the Sisterhood in 3014.

Level of Technology: The Brotherhood were capable of faster-than-light space travel and also possessed personal cloaking technology. They employed a hand-held particle gun called the 'basic weapon'. There was also a large, muscular cyborg-like being sometimes used in personal combat called the Monster of Badoon. Although males typically wore minimal clothing, some soldiers wore an explosive 'frag-thong' that destroyed approximately ten surrounding enemies once a Badoon was shot down.
According to Reed Richards, the Badoon were a "Type II civilization", presumably according to the Kardashev scale.
