From the article ...
- "Kherubim are various groups/races of people from the planet Khera. Kherubim resemble humans in appearance, but are physically far stronger and more durable and extremely long-lived, nearly immortal. However an evolutionary drawback to their near-immortality is that Kherans are almost infertile, only very rarely will a Kheran produce offspring. This effect is seen in real world natural envirnoments, as longer living organisms will have fewer offspring than organisms with short lifespans. This is a natural check against overpopulation. Only one in 10,000 kheran females is capable of giving birth, and only then at her very first mating. Of those, only one in approx. 10,000 will become pregnant, and only 1 in 1000 of those babies will be born alive. The rest are stillborn."
In other words, excluding celibacy and twins, Kheran women have a total fertility rate of 1/10^14, not due some external factor such as genetic tampering, environmental toxins or diseases, but due to natural evolution. I know that superhero comics aren't exactly hard science fiction, but this sounds like a mistake. -- Gordon Ecker 05:01, 15 November 2007 (UTC)
Even though the Kherubim were created by Lee and Choi, a good deal of their history and characteristics were expanded upon by writers such as Joe Casey and Alan Moore. Is it worth it to mention them in the intro to this article? - ChimpZealot (talk) 06:21, 5 September 2008 (UTC)
Titans, while genetically different from Kherubim, can breed with humans. Maul is living proof of that. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 2601:F:901:173A:4848:EA71:140F:86EC (talk) 23:16, 16 May 2015 (UTC)
