Maltusians were a race of sapient beings who developed to become an advanced technological civilization that lived on Maltus. They were similar to humans in appearance and physiology. Unlike other known alien races, such as Kryptonians, they possessed no special powers by default, although their physiology could be altered and augmented by chronal radiation (as demonstrated by Mar Novu).

Maltusians are the species of the Guardians of the Universe, the immortal founders and leaders of the interstellar peacekeeping force known as the Green Lantern Corps. Mar Novu was made a Maltusian to make him a composite character with Maltusian Krona, who caused the crisis by attempting to see the dawn of time.
