One of the most accomplished race of conquerors and scientists to cut a swath across the Marvel Universe, the Kree have been clashing with the Fantastic Four, Avengers and more for years, coming close to adding Earth to their empire more than once. As recent events in FANTASTIC FOUR and FF have led to major shifts in their status quo once again, we take this opportunity to chart the history of the mighty Kree.

Set up by the very ruling class he has pledged his life to defending, Ronan must survive on a barren planet populated by powerful criminals and outcasts. Even if the Accuser can make it back to his people, he’s got not only Annihilus, but the corruption eating away at Kree society to face—no small order even for Ronan.

WAR OF KINGS #1

The Inhumans have traveled across the universe to take their place as the rightful rulers of the Kree Empire.
