History

Chitauri Prime is the homeworld of the Chitauri people, and heavily defended central point of their galaxy spanning empire, located somewhere described as many light years away from Sol. The planet is host to numerous Chitauri warriors, and is surrounded by a fleet of warships and Chitauri Leviathans. Its most iconic visual trademark is the secondary ring running vertically around the planet, comprised of debris and asteroids.[1] Due to its erratic orbit, the planet's surface is hundreds of degrees below zero for years at a time.[2] Aside from being the political and military centrifuge of the Chitauri, the planet is also known for the gladiatorial games, where captive slaves and prisoners are forced to fight against and alongside each other in various brutal challenges for the entertainment of both the citizens of the Empire, and the people of the galaxy as a whole who turn in to watch the recorded and broadcast videos of the fights.[1]

In 2014, one of the captive prisoners for their gladiator games, Jesse Alexander, a former member of the Supernovas, raised a rebellion of slaves and prisoners. Alexander and the prisoners were able to escape from the Ancient Catacombs beneath the Gladiator Pits where they were being held and overwhelmed the guards, eventually escaping above ground, taking control of a Chitauri Warship and escaping into space successfully. As punishment, the on-duty guards that survived were slated to become the next gladiators themselves, until the arrival of Sam Alexander, who was searching for his father. Sam was surprised to discover his father had already escaped, and when the Master of the Games decided to try and capture Sam for the games, Alexander quickly followed in his father's footsteps, leading an uprising of the new slaves to retake yet another ship and escape.[3]
