Cadre K is a group of Skrull mutants (really "k-class deviant skrulls") who fought to rescue their kind from being culled at birth, agitated for mutant rights. Roster includes Fiz
, all with various powers. Founded and initially mentored by Professor Xavier
of the X-Men
. On Carplax IV, where skrull Lord Merrek's fecundity-supplement programs apparently resulted in a higher percentage of mutant births, Cadre K battled Dakr't, Trl'k and the Purifiers to rescue the X-Men.
Cadre K was created by Kurt Busiek
and Jerry Ordway
in 2000 and first appeared in Maximum Security Dangerous Planet
