- "Once... mankind accepted a simple truth, that they were not alone in this universe. Some worlds, man believed to be home to their gods. Others, they knew to fear."
Prior to when the Asgardians came, there were three extraterrestrial species that had traveled to Earth many millenniums ago, when early homo sapiens were not yet the dominant species on Earth. A Chronicom from Chronyca-2 came to Earth to watch over humans and took on the nickname "Enoch".
A civilization known as the Kree came to Earth with the agenda of serving a war effort in a pro-longed intergalactic battle. They experimented on many groups of the homo sapiens, altering their DNA, as a means of utilizing the primitive species as slave-soldiers to fight their wars. While they conducted their experiments, the Kree built underground cities as bases for their operations.
However, Alveus, one of the Kree's experiments, fought against the kree for some time gaining human followers. With their experiments shut down and Alveus' rebellion the Kree were forced to leave earth, leaving behind their underground cities, remnants of their technology, and even one of their dead. The test subjects had gained enhanced abilities as a result of the experiments conducted on them. They passed their altered genes down to generations, giving rise to a new sub-species of man. For millenniums to come, this newly emerged sub-species had concealed itself from their relative race, and became colloquially known as the "Inhumans".
While the Inhumans hid themselves, their sister race, the Homo Sapiens, still was discovering ways to survive their time on this earth. It not was until they had begin to learn how to cook their food, that they had begun to advance more quickly. And at the center of this progression, was born the cradle of civilization itself, Mesopotamia.
The Magistrates Killings
As the five tribes each struggled for control over each other, a warrior shaman named Bashenga received a vision from the goddess Bast who led him to a Heart-shaped Herb and told him to consume it. Following his orders, Bashenga consumed the plant and gained superhuman strength, speed, stamina, durability, reflexes, agility, and instincts. 4 tribes worshiped him and coronated him as king and Black Panther, protector of Wakanda while the Jabari isolated themselves in the mountains away from the main city.
World at War
Over time Humanity grew ambitious leading Wakandans to fear the imminent threat of invading conquerers. Wakanda implemented an invisible force field as a barrier and disguised themselves as a poor third-world country. However, Wakanda's hoarding of Vibranium lead some like Ulysses Klaue and N'Jobu to believe more people required Vibranium weapons to fight back against injustice. Though the Wakandans had eventually shielded themselves from the world, old accounts of them had grown into myths and legends lead numerous travelers to South America while searching for it.
Protection from the multiverse
Near the year 2988 BC, a haphazard interdimensional anomaly known as the Convergence had occurred. Builders utilized the gravitational anomalies created by this event to build more complex structures like Stonehenge.
Demons Are Made
A Nine-Headed Serpent Is Born
Alveus was feared by the other inhumans, due to his dangerous capabilities. But while the inhumans dreaded Alveus, humans marveled at him. Worshipping Alveus as an almighty deity, his followers believed him destined to rule the world.
It was during the year 400 BC when the inhumans eventually exiled Alveus to a barren planet, due to their fears of him being too dangerous. When Alveus's worshippers learned of their idol's banishment, they became bent on returning him back to this earth. They soon founded a cult centered around their extreme fanaticism, and the cult has since then lived on for centuries to come, taking many forms and many names.
In the early A.D.'s a group of five aliens known as the Hand recruited numerous Humans and trained them to become Ninjas for the Hand. In return the Hand gave them a Resurrection Elixir that would help them live forever. As the ever growing Hand conquered Asia a young boy pulled a knife out of the breast of his dead mother and slaughtered some of the Hand's strongest warriors. His people called him the Chaste and when he grew up he formed a group named after himself to destroy the Hand once and for all. The chaste begin to believe their leader to be the immortal Iron Fist. Even with the Chaste in their way the Hand still managed to kill millions when they caused the Eruption of Mount Vesuvius in 79.
Dark Days Upon Us
The Roman Empire had fallen, an event that started a chain reaction that put Most of Europe in an era of darkness. Appropriately enough, this era was named the "Dark Ages". It was during this Era when the extraterrestrial race known as the Jotuns, or colloquially named the "Frost Giants" had begun a conquest on earth, starting with the town of Tønsberg , in what is currently Norway. All Humans almost went ext but the Frost Giants were stopped by the Asgardians following King Odin who forced them back to Jotunheim where they engaged in a battle.
After the war, Asgardians took time on earth to form relationships with the Humans. They taught their culture and language amongst other things to the Norwegian civilizations. Their visitations went down in legend, forming the ancients myths of the Norse gods.
From the Romans, derived the British. This nation grew into prominence over the dark ages, colonializing across the world for centuries even after the dark ages, which correspondingly formed independent nations due to rebellion against their imperial rule. Most notable of these independent nations is that of North America, a current world superpower. And eventually, monarchy became infamous amongst governments, democracy grew into prominence, forming the modern free world. During the British reign many warriors took artifacts, such as one from the Edo people of Benin in the 16th Century, and one from the Bobo Ashanti people of Ghana, but once when raiding the Fula Tribe of Benin when they found an artifact crafted in the 7th Century. They believed it to be a native artifact but it was really a Vibranium weapon crafted in Wakanda.
Some time in the High Middle Ages ,Genghis Khan become an Emperor, growing Mongolia into one of the greatest empires in history. Using the bow and arrow, Khan was able to grow an empire twice the size of Alexander the Great's Macedonian Empire, and four times the size of the Roman Empire. It was during his reign when several Irish monastery workers met a man by the name of "Elliot Randolph". They gave him food and shelter at the monastery where he revealed to several of the priests that he was actually an Asgardian Berserker. The priests vowed to not share his identity yet he did once again to a young French girl who's brother wrote it into The Warrior Who Stayed. Near the end of the Late Middle Ages ,Odin gave the Tesseract to church keepers who hid it behind a painting of Yggdrasil. Around the same time Humans colonized South America and formed the Inca Empire.
The Rialto Bridge
The Devil's Sentry
In the 1634 construction began on Castillo San Cristóbal, with on one of the first sentry boxes being placed. Overtime the box was called "La Garita El Diablo" or "The Devil's Sentry" due to a myth that soldiers disappeared there in the middle of the night. After this the fort continued construction, finishing up in the 18th Century.
World War One
During the early/mid 1900's America was nearing it's zenith. Across the world, racial disharmony and morally ambiguous political conflict led to two of the worst Wars ever seen by Humanity. All nations were plagued by the impending need to engage in the conflict, risking their national security. As a means of preparing for the inevitable, all of the governments involved utilized more advanced weaponry unseen in any past military conflicts, resulting in more death and devastation. From grenades to chemical warfare, the death toll was only rising higher and higher as militaries were constantly utilizing these newest weapons. It was during one of these wars, World War One, that Joseph Rogers would die to a mustard gas attack while serving the 107th Infantry before his son was even born.
In the wake of the first World War, Europe was left destabilized, while coincidentally, numerous political conflicts were left unresolved. Most affected by this aftermath was that of Germany, a weakened and small country. Racial disharmony targeted toward the Jewish became controversial, with the people blaming the Jews for their current weakened state. This fueled Adolf Hitler's overly ambitious campaign into prominence, as well as the birth of his very own political party, the National Socialist Party, or more infamously known as the Nazi Party.
With Germany's weakened state and the anxiety felt by its people, Hitler and his Nazi Party easily seized control over Germany. Now underneath Hitler's dictatorship, Germany sparked latent tension within Europe, igniting a second World War. Great Britain, France, China, & Russia representing an allied power that opposed Hitler's authoritarian principles; Japan and Italy stood behind Nazi Germany, aggressively supporting the Nazi party and its campaign.
A Serpent Reborn
It was during the Third Reich when the cult of Alveus remerged in Germany. By this time, the cult had grown greatly in both size and strength; However, while the cult itself was still alive, the original incarnation was not. Instead of worshiping Alveus, the cult was now centered around anti-freedom beliefs. Officially rebranding themselves as HYDRA, this new incarnation of the cult became just as devoted to its newfound doctrine as it had been to its prior beliefs. Despite the sudden change, the cult still kept the illustrations of Alveus as its common emblem, as they believed Alveus to have symbolized power.
America Enters The War
After several series of events that whiled up American anger, America finally joined World War II in 1941, joining the Allies against the Axis Powers. More To Be Added
In order to boost morale, the US released several war promos to the public in order to encourage them to do their part for the war effort, from enlisting to donating food. The US government and its allies also started a top secret project in order to create an army of super soldiers to help them fight the Axis Powers and Hydra by using the Super Soldier Serum that was created by German scientist Abraham Erskine. The project eventually recruited Steve Rogers, who was very sickly and frail. After a series of tests that tested his character and morals, Steve Rogers was eventually chosen to the first one to undergo the procedure. More To Be Added
A Legend Is Made
Thanks to the procedure, Steve Rogers became Captain America, the first and only super soldier to be successfully created at the time. After the procedure, the head scientist Erskine was shot and killed, the last vile of the formula was stolen, and the observation room was bombed by an undercover HYDRA operative who was subsequently chased down and briefly caught by Steve Rogers before his subsequent suicide by taking a cyanide pill. He is then made into a propaganda tool to get more people to enlist and support the war and army. However, he did eventually go rogue, along with Peggy Carter and Howard Stark, to attempt to rescue captured soldiers, including Bucky Barnes, from Hydra. More To Be Added

Characteristic TraitsRealms. They have a common appearance, most similar to Asgardians and Xandarians but with the same anatomical features of the many other humanoid races. Their biology is considered "simple" by the Kree, is markedly different from Asgardians, and similar enough to be sexually compatible with Krylorians. They have short lifespans compared to certain races such as the Kree, Asgardians, Jotuns, and Celestials, and thus are often referred to as "mortal." While humans are outclassed in terms of physical ability such as strength, speed, and reflexes by races such as Asgardians and Jotuns, they are largely on par with races such as Xandarians, Krylorians, Centaurians, Chitauri, and Dark Elves. However, highly trained human fighters (such as S.H.I.E.L.D. agents) have been observed to defeat Kree on multiple occasions.
Humans are also seen to not have the biological fortitude to wield the Infinity Stones, as do Dark Elves, Celestials, Titans and Kree. However, two human beings were able to concurrently use the power of the Infinity Stones, a feat which only Thanos had displayed before. Bruce Banner used the Nano Gauntlet to resurrect everyone killed in the Snap, although using the Infinity Stones had damaged his arm. Through the use of his suit, Tony Stark materialized a makeshift Nano Gauntlet to utilize the near omnipotent power of the Infinity Stones to decimate Thanos, an omnicidal galactic warlord, and all of his armies, even though using such tremendous power also fatally wounded Stark.
Human beings also make up for their lack of superhuman physical powers in terms of intelligence and adaptability. Some human beings have been enhanced through various means such as either advancements in science or through the use of the Tesseract. There are also human beings who can also utilize mystical arts to attain realty warping abilities or be exposed to some form of dimensional energy in order to attain superhuman abilities.
