"The six all stand present. Let us unite under the banner of one true Confederacy."

The Confederacy was an intergalactic alliance formed by members of six extraterrestrial species that have approached Earth demanding Gravitonium and Inhumans, in exchange for protection from extraterrestrial threats.

They initially struck a deal with HYDRA leader Hale, but they were ultimately forced to collaborate with a Gravitonium empowered Glenn Talbot, who seized a seat in the Confederacy until his demise at the hands of Quake during the Battle of Chicago.

One year later, the Confederacy also started chasing down S.H.I.E.L.D. in deep space, wanting revenge for costing them so much. Having learned that Chronyca-2 had been destroyed, the Confederacy attacked the planet for resources. However, the Chronicoms mustered an effective counterattack and managed to defeat the Confederacy, seizing their warships for their own purposes.



"The Confederacy has stood more than 1,000 years."

Six extraterrestrial species, including the Astrans, the Kallusians, the Kree, the Remorath and the Rajaks stood together for more than a 1,000 years in an alliance called the Confederacy, which would be united against threats to achieving their own goals.

Over five hundred years ago, the Confederacy began to hold regular sacred gathering ceremonies.[1]

Deal with HYDRA

"My father... who had better vision than his race who shunned him, called it a hidden blue gem. He and his entire Confederacy wanted it for their own."
Kasius to Tye[src]

The Confederacy works with HYDRA leader Hale

In the aftermath of the Battle of New York, the Confederacy was contacted by HYDRA thanks to a transceiver reclaimed in a Chitauri aircraft. The Confederacy struck a deal with HYDRA and demanded Inhumans and Gravitonium in exchange for the Confederacy protecting Earth from extraterrestrial threats[2], notably from Thanos whose quest for the Infinity Stones made Earth one of his targets. However, the Confederacy did not intend to keep their part of the bargain as they were fully aware that even their forces could not match the Mad Titan's might.[1]

Confederacy member Qovas meets S.H.I.E.L.D. leader Phil Coulson

The Confederacy tasked General Hale, their human associate, to find the Gravitonium and the Inhumans they were looking for. To that end, Hale tried to convince S.H.I.E.L.D. leader Phil Coulson to join her. She took him to the Confederacy meeting room where Qovas used his Astralscope to show Thanos' spaceships approaching Earth to Coulson. Qovas and Hale thus informed Coulson about the deal struck between the Confederacy and HYDRA.[2]

The Confederacy decides to attack S.H.I.E.L.D.

However, Coulson refused and Hale, who had actually secured a bulk a Gravitonium long ago but refused to share it to the Confederacy, lost it to S.H.I.E.L.D. in the same time she lost her daughter Ruby Hale. In despair, she reached out to the Confederacy and disclosed the location of the Lighthouse, S.H.I.E.L.D.'s base, claiming that she would not try to stop the Confederacy from attacking and killing the S.H.I.E.L.D. members.[3]

S.H.I.E.L.D. Opposition

"You will be dealing with me now. I'm here for what was promised. The Gravitonium."
Qovas to Phil Coulson[src]

Confederacy leader Qovas led his spaceship, along with a battalion of Remorath, above the Lighthouse. He contacted S.H.I.E.L.D. and demanded the Gravitonium to be handed over, but Phil Coulson blatantly refused, prompting the Confederacy to end the negotiations and to launch an assault on the Lighthouse.

Several Remorath infiltrated the Lighthouse and soon began a rampage, killing several S.H.I.E.L.D. agents in the process while looking for the Gravitonium. However, the Remorath were eliminated by Glenn Talbot, who had infused himself with the Gravitonium, causing the Confederacy's attack to fail.[4]

New Member

"Maybe it's time you made me a part of your little secret society."
Glenn Talbot to Estella[src]

Following the Confederacy's defeat, Glenn Talbot used his powers to take Phil Coulson and himself into Qovas' Ship. There, they met with Qovas and Talbot, demonstrating his newfound mighty powers, ordered Qovas and the Remorath to kneel before him. Although Qovas warned them that the Confederacy would not leave such an insult unpunished, Talbot ignored his warnings and requested to meet the other members of the Confederacy. At first, Qovas refused, but he eventually accepted when he understood that Talbot had infused himself with the Gravitonium the Confederacy was looking for.

Crixon is murdered by Glenn Talbot

As a result, Talbot and Qovas joined the other members of the Confederacy in their traditional meeting room. At first, the Confederacy leaders were shocked to see Talbot as they considered that he did not belong to their circle and they refused to consider renegotiating the deal the Confederacy had struck with HYDRA. Talbot requested to be made part of the Confederacy as Earth's representative, but Crixon refused, claiming that they could not welcome a simple Human to seat with them. This caused Talbot to approach Crixon and to fully reveal the extent of his Gravitonium-based powers, leading to Crixon's death. Thus, Talbot forced his way within the Confederacy.

Taryan tells Glenn Talbot about Thanos

Most of the Confederacy leaders then left, leaving only Qovas, Talbot and the Kree Taryan. Taryan revealed to Talbot that the Confederacy had never intended to protect the Earth, especially against Thanos, who was coming to Earth as they spoke. Talbot, Taryan and Qovas agreed that Talbot should absorb more Gravitonium to become more powerful.

Glenn Talbot takes control of the Confederacy and the war against S.H.I.E.L.D.

Talbot and Qovas returned into Qovas' spaceship, where they informed Coulson and Hale about their talks with the other Confederacy leaders. However, upon learning Taryan's allegiance to the House of Kasius, Coulson immediately warned Talbot, which angered the new Confederacy member. When Talbot figured out that S.H.I.E.L.D. had infiltrated the ship, he felt betrayed by Coulson and eventually turned on him. As a result, Hale was killed and Coulson, Melinda May and Daisy Johnson were made prisoners of the Confederacy.[1]

Losing Control

"You're just the villain of the month, and you're going down, just like all the rest."
Phil Coulson to Qovas[src]

The Confederacy intended to keep Phil Coulson and Melinda May prisoners in Qovas' Ship while Daisy Johnson would be delivered to Taryan. In the meantime, new Confederacy leader Glenn Talbot decided to leave to find more Gravitonium to gain more power. In order to prevent Coulson and May from escaping, Qovas warned them that the Confederacy would launch Ionizer Missiles on the Lighthouse should they attempt anything to escape.

However, the S.H.I.E.L.D. managed to break free: Deke Shaw helped Coulson and May to leave their cell while Johnson broke free of the Astralscope illusion she was submitted to by Taryan. Coulson and Johnson successfully escaped from Qovas' spaceship with the Zephyr One which had been taken into space by S.H.I.E.L.D. and May and Shaw remained in the spaceship to disarm the missiles.

Qovas attempted to stop them, but he failed and launched the missiles, unaware that their target had been changed from the Lighthouse to Qovas' spaceship itself. May and Shaw escaped with the Phase Harmonic Teleportation Device while the ship was being destroyed, leading to the death of yet another leader of the Confederacy.[5]

Glenn Talbot freezes to death in space

Furthermore, the new Confederacy member Talbot was soon defeated by Quake during the Battle of Chicago. Along with Talbot, the Gravitonium the Confederacy desired was expelled into outer space by Johnson. In the end, the Confederacy failed to obtain both the Gravitonium and the Inhumans promised by HYDRA.[6]

Deep Space Hunt

"If they didn't think we were so strong, maybe they'd send smaller ships."
Jemma Simmons[src]

Outraged by the humiliation they had suffered because of S.H.I.E.L.D., the Confederacy began to send troops to find and eliminate their enemies. One of their warships located the Zephyr One used by S.H.I.E.L.D. during the Search for Leo Fitz and fired Ionizer Missiles at the aircraft, but the warship eventually lost them due to their use of the Phase Harmonic Teleportation Device.[7]

Defeated by the Chronicoms

"The Confederacy came to us, eager to pick our planet's bones clean. They were not expecting resistance. We fought back."

Having learned that the planet Chronyca-2 had been destroyed, the Confederacy, in a fleet of warships, went to search through the remnants of the planet and seize anything of value. However, they met an unexpected resistance from the surviving Chronicoms and were defeated, allowing the Chronicoms to commandeer the Confederacy's spaceships. Chronicom leader Atarah then led the surviving Chronicoms on an exodus across the galaxy, hoping to capture S.H.I.E.L.D. scientist Leo Fitz so they could use Time Travel to save Chronyca-2.[8]
