Nova Centurion 44765 Field Journal 
 
              We reported to the border of the Shi' ar system based on intel suggesting a Kree invasion was eminent. We arrived to see the battered Shi' ar fleet making what appeared at the time to be a last stand, but instead of firing on the Kree fleet they released what appeared to be a mutated Shi'ar that they referred to as the Gladiator. It tore through the Kree fleet as if it were nothing. We have discovered that they had been developing the Gladiator program for several decades using genetic material gathered at great cost to the empire from several of Galactus's Heralds and other as yet undetermined sources giving the specimen many varied abilities which haven't been completely disclosed at this point in time though we will be investigating further. 
 
On a more worrisome note, the Emperor D'ken seems unduly distressed. While we are aware that this region being trapped between the Kree and Skrull empires hasn't been easy on the Shi' ar people and many of their people fear that the stresses of leadership may be too much for the young Emperor.  
 
The Journal of Lilandra Neramani  
 
               I'm beginning to worry about my brother, for months he has been becoming more and more removed from his people. At first we all had great pride in his ascent to Emperor, he had always been the brightest of us and we felt he would lead us to the former glory of the Shi'ar but I fear the pressure of his position is wearing on him. He rarely sleeps anymore and has become obsessed with finding the fabled M'Kraan crystal, said to be an item of untold power. The success of the Gladiator program hasn't helped as much as I'd hoped it would. Instead after seeing the ease of victory D'ken has ordered the fleet away to search the galaxy for the crystal while placing the Gladiator completely in charge of the defense of the Empire, Despite the power of the creature it it simply too soon to place a task of this importance on his shoulders. I worry about what this will do to the fleet have to go into Kree occupied space to search for this crystal that may not even be real, if we lose them, the future of the Empire may go with them.  
 
Nova Corpsmen 6005764 (Richard Rider)   Field Journal  
 
        My first mission and I didn't even do anything, ever since I left home it's been one amazing sight after another and today was no different. My group had been assigned to go help fend off an invasion attempt, but we proved unnecessary as the Shi'ar had decided to introduce the universe to the Gladiator, he did things I'd previously only thought possible in a comic book and for the second time I was genuinely worried for the prospect of what would happen if Earth ever were to become part of this insanity.  It's odd here, despite the Nova Corps being allies with the Shi'ar its obvious that they don't trust us. Everywhere I go the people make it clear that we are not wanted here, it doesn't help that many of the people seem to firmly believe that they're emperor was going insane and look at this Gladiator more as the tool of a mad man than the savior their leaders profess him to be and I keep hearing whispers about the Imperium  wasting resources  by searching for some mythical crystal. I did get a chance to met the Gladiator face to face, he wasn't what I expected at all, he was a bit conceited but likable, and intelligent with a genuine concern for the safety of the Shi'ar people. The Centurion who leads our group has assigned me to keep an eye on this system for the time being, and I will be reporting the goings on here until further notice.

@joshmightbe: Sweet! I'll look into that. If you're interested, you can check out my Wolverine story. It's called Project X: The Birth of Wolverine. I wrote the introduction and the prologue.
