"The Avengers" Prep For The '"Kree-Skrull War"

New reports indicate that the upcoming feature "The Avengers", prepping to start in New Mexico in 2011, will feature Marvel Comics villains 'The Skrulls' and 'The Kree'.

Debuting in Marvel Comics' "Fantastic Four" #2 (January 1962), the 'Skrulls', were created by writer Stan Lee and illustrator Jack Kirby.

Skrulls originate from the planet 'Skrullos', in the 'Drox System' of the 'Andromeda Galaxy', originally a mercantile civilization, primarily interested in free trade and the sharing of technology.

Green-skinned reptilian humanoids with large pointed ears, red/green eyes and corrugated chins, Skrulls are noted for their genetic, molecular instability, due to 'Celestial' experimentation that produced Skrull 'Deviants'.

Know for their physical malleability and the ability to shapeshift to any size and shape at will, Skrulls can take on the appearance of other beings and objects.

The 'Kree', aka the 'Ruul' are a scientifically, technologically advanced militaristic alien race, native to the planet 'Hala' in the 'Large Magellanic Cloud'.

They debuted in "Fantastic Four #65" (August 1967), also created by Lee and Kirby.

The largest Skrull-related conflict involving Earth has been the 'Kree-Skrull War', after 'Ronan' wrested control of the 'Kree Empire' from the 'Supreme Intelligence', leading to an attack on the Skrulls, subsequently involving 'The Avengers' superhero team.
