Awesome Toy Collection – ToyBiz Brood

Hi all, here’s my showcase of another Marvel ToyBiz figure which I feel is somewhat compatible with my Marvel Universe figures – Marvel’s Brood.

The Brood are a race of insectoid parasitic beings whose origins are unknown, and have spread across the galaxies infesting numerous worlds. The Brood are one of the most insidious aliens ever, they reproduce by implanting eggs into their host, which then grows and takes over their host’s body, changing it into another Brood and effectively killing the original host. If the host possesses any super powers, the resultant Brood will inherit them.

The Brood share a hive mind, each Brood knows what other members of the Brood knows. The Brood is governed by a supreme matriarchy, with a Brood Empress at the top of the Brood caste system. Each Brood community is lead by a Queen who fulfill the mental commands of the Empress. The Broodlings make up the Brood community, doing all the labor and most of the fighting, and they never rebel against their Queen. Although the Queens have no allegiance to each other.

The Brood have fanged jaws. Their skulls are triangular and flat, with a birthmark between their eyes. The two front legs are actually long tentacles they can use to manipulate objects. Due to their natural body armor and teeth, the Brood are very dangerous in combat. In addition, they have stingers that deliver paralyzing or killing poison.

The Brood are among one of the X-Men’s most formidable enemies.
