Antarenes were a race of ant-men from a distant solar system whose sun had expired. This made their planet of Antar uninhabitable. The ant-men went underground and built a propulsion device to move their planet through space called a Propulsor. Using this device they hoped to find a new solar system with a thriving sun.

In the 2680's the came Antarenes arrived in the Earth's solar system. They planned to push the planet Earth out of its orbit and then into the sun while Antar would take its spot. However, their plan was discovered by Marvo1.2Go+ when he visited their dead world. Marvo pretended to go along with the Antarenes plan until he and his friend Bud found an opportunity to destroy the force ray gun. Bud and Marvo then sent the ant-men's planet out of the solar system.
