The Khunds are a fictional alien race featured in comic books published by DC Comics. They were introduced during the Silver Age era of DC's publishing history and first appeared in Adventure Comics #346 in July, 1966.
The Khunds are a near-human race of aliens who hail from the planet Khundia. Their physical attributes make them broader and more dominating than a normal Earthling, and though there is some points of similarity between the two, a Khund could never be mistaken for a human. The Khunds were one of several races who allied themselves with the Dominators during the alien invasion of Earth in the late 1980s.
On the CBS television series Supergirl, a K'hund was an alien refugee on Earth, and one of many such non-Kryptonians to escape imprisonment from Fort Rozz. He encountered Supergirl, but fortunately for him, she was under the influence of Red kryptonite and let him go. He was later apprehended by agents of the D.E.O. shortly thereafter.
