Planet of Origin: Venus
The Venusians are sentient humanoids looking strikingly similar to humans who have developed an highly advanced civilisation capable of space faring on Venus, building cities of which Olympus is the largest. They are known to have visited Earth as early as circa 1000 BC, landing in the Greek Isles where they were likened to gods. They since have kept a close watch over our planet.
Men of Venus action figures where commercialised in the sixties. Their story was told at the back of their blisterpack: 
From Olympus, largest of the great sky cities of Venus, the mighty cloud ship Cumulus sets forth. Like a fiery comet it blazes through the blackness of outer space toward our Earth. Its captain, Commander Comet, is a direct descendant of the mighty Zeus, leader of the historic first venusian expedition to Earth which landed near the Grecian Isles 3000 years ago. Commander Comet's present mission is one of routine surveillance and once within the atmosphere of Earth, his ship will join the great fleet of  Venusian crafts that float like clouds above our planet night and day, watching undetected over our world.
