Hello again true believers. This is a respect thread for our much beloved Skrull warrior. Feel free to cotribute, I'll post what I have.

Born on Tarnax IV, the young warrior Kl’rt volunteered to be artificially augmented at the command of Emperor Dorrek who had vowed revenge after an invasion of Earth was foiled by the Fantastic Four. Kl'rt was given all of the powers of the FF Augmented, and thus was transformed into the Super-Skrull.

Everything about his powers was meant to be better than the Four. He can stretch further than Mr. Fantastic, exercise greater control over his invisibility and force fields than the Invisible Girl (Woman), He can burn hotter and fly faster than the Human Torch and can even fire "anti-matter fire balls", and was far stronger than the Thing.

He even has the power of Hypnosis.

*Note: Common misconception is that he was equal in power to the Thing, who at the time was in the 5 ton range, but not only was he far stronger, this feat put him in the 100+ ton range

The Super Skrull also has a powerful healing factor, capable of surviving grievous wounds. He can also enter a "healing coma" when the damage is too great. Heat and flame would hasten the recovery.

He has tested these abilities time and again against powerful foes.

His first battle Against the Fantastic Four.

In this battle he literally flew circles around the Human Torch and fried the air molecules around him and created flame constructs.

His elasticity was so great, he could overwhelm even Mr. Fantastic, and stretch out, beyond the city. He also demonstrated great reaction time and speed.

He easily out matched the Thing in close quarters and later when they all tried the trap him, he easily pushed past them with his hypnosis.

Proving his superiority in combat

After this he would face off against other Iconic characters

Battles, and holds his own against the God of Thunder, Thor.

Note: Super-Skrull didn't even want to fight him, and was only there to take him home. This is the only time I'm aware of that these two "fought". So contrary to what some other more recent books may tell you; no, Hulkling has never beaten Super-Skrull.

During the Annihilation Wave, Super-Skrull demostrated even more uses for his powers.

Stretching his limbs thin, he has used them to slice his enemies to bits.

Creating a force field in front of him as he flies, he can plow through enemies and buildings.

He even has the ability to absorb unlimited amounts of heat, thus increasing his power output.

And in speaking of power output..

Something worth noting is that Thor was under a spell that was manipulating entire populations. This made him incredibly violent and as you can see, he fought with the intent to kill.

@warlordeternal: Needless to say, excellent thread. Way to display S.S. as the underrated heavyhitter he is 🙂!

And when we say that S.S. absorbs "Near limitless energy" this is the level of weaponized energy he's absorbed in his body.

@cosmoman: Thank you. I love the Super Skrull. I always felt like he has been underrated and under utilized for a long time. I would honestly love to see him in more books as a anti-hero.

Np and couldn't agree more, him being included in MvC3 was a dream come true.
