I come in peace
~ The Bad Alien

The Bad Alien, whose name is never given (although some sources list it as "Talec"), is the main antagonist of the 1990 Science fiction/action movie I Come in Peace/Dark Angel.

He was portrayed by Mathias Hues. 


The Bad Alien comes from an advanced species of aliens that appear to be energy based (as they make huge explosions when they die) who eventually came to make money off of dealing drugs. He had presumably came to Earth several times before the action of the film, but that is unkown. He came to Houston with a very specific Modus Operandi:he would give people massive doses of Heroine, then suck the endorphines from their brains as they overdosed.

The Bad Alien starts his spree by killing four heroin dealers with his killer disc and then stealing 90 kilograms of heroin from them. Several times throughout the movie the Alien is seen going on rampages, for various reasons, often destroying large numbers of cars.  

He was eventually pursued by another alien from his home world, but managed to kill the Alien Cop, opening up the door for two human law enforcers to fight him. 


  • The Bad Alein carries a large arsenal of advanced weapons from his home planet. 
  • His main weapon is a killer disc, tuned to the human pattern of electromagnetic impulses, making it fly around and cut through all living humans it can find, until it gets stuck inside of a magnet.
  • The Alien also carries a large Alien Handgun that rapid-fires explosives, each capable of destroying a car.
  • He also has a retractable blade on his right arm that he uses to suck out human endorphines. On his left hand, the Alien's gauntlet has a huge, mechanical, bladed whip that he uses to inject heroine.
