Physical Description
The Dire Wraiths are metamorphs, able to transform into virtually any shape. While they inherited this ability form their Skrull forebears, the Dark Nebula’s magical energies greatly enhanced it, allowing them to alter their mass to some extent (unlike their Skrull relatives); however, most Wraiths lost their shape-shifting ability when Wraithworld was neutralized.


The Dire Wraiths were a race of evil alien shape-shifters from the Dark Nebula. They were a genetic offshoot of the Deviants on Earth and the extraterrestrial Skrulls.The females of their race specialized in the darkest of dark magic. Two hundred years ago the Galadorians defeated the Dire Wraith attempt to invade the "Golden Galaxy." The Wraiths then infiltrated Earth's population, disguised as human beings but were repulsed by the Galadorian Spaceknight, Rom and his Earth allies.
