The Makers are cybernetic mutated human survivors, bitter rivals to the Inheritors. After a long campaign involving their cybernetic Gorilloids, the Makers were finally defeated by a temporary alliance of the Inheritors and the ape and human surface-dwellers.
The Inheritors, in turn, were later conquered by the mutants of the Fellowship and the Maker laboratories were put to use in their service.
- The Makers first appeared exclusively in the Planet of the Apes comic books published by Marvel Comics.
