Who are the Sakaarans
The Sakaarans were introduced during the storyline Planet Hulk.

There he is faced with a fairly primitive but powerful people.
Star System: Tayo
Sakaarans include multiple races. Primarily there are the Imperials, Shadow People, and The Natives
Imperials- Sakaaran Imperials dominate the government and form up the bulk of the empire cities or as farmers in the countryside.
Shadow People – Have grey skin. Their race once crisscrossed the galaxy but the
Old Power a force they depended upon had grown unstable. They seeded the galaxy with their race trying
to undue the damage the Old Power had done.
They now have Priests that can channel the old power making themselves
super strong and durable. Most shadow people live in villages outside of the major cities.
Natives- Primitive, buglike, humanoids
Government: Monarchy Imperialistic – Sakaar is controlled by an Empire whose Imperialistic force stretches across the planet. The Emperor has the title Sakaarson and rules with absolute power.
Father Emperor – Angmo – Original Leader who united the world under the empire. Was born with a trait called the Imperial Prime that gave him vast power.
Red King- Angmo-Asan – Spoiled son of Angmo who lacked his Imperial Prime. The original Angmo attempted to have him killed when he was child but the Assassin Hiroim the Shamed refused to kill a child. Eventually took control of the Empire. Built himself a power suit that made him powerful like his father. Brutalized the populace but manipulated the stories to make himself seem like a hero. Eventually, he is beaten by the Hulk in the Arena and loses control of the planet. He managed to survive though is now more machine than flesh.
The Hulk- Takes control of the planet after being stranded there. Eventually, leads a war party of Sakaarans to Earth to take revenge on the Illumati for sending him there and for blowing up the shuttle that killed his Sakaaran family.
Cariera the Old Strong - Former guardian of the Red King, later part of Hulk's warbound pack.
