Captain Marvel: Your guide to everything Skrulls

1 of 6

There’s a lot to talk about when it comes to the green alien shapeshifters in Captain Marvel. We’ll try to get to most of the critical points of each type of Skrull’s physiology and motives.

After much deliberation, and by deliberation we mean fan-theorying, there isn’t an MCU character who we haven’t accused of being a Skrull yet. Our prime suspect has been Scott Lang (Ant-Man) ever since the Avengers: Endgame trailer debuted.

At this point, our Skrull-derived character castings have prepared us for any shocking Skrull reveal, including the entire Avengers team being made up of Skrulls (after all, we have to prepare for the unexpected). Since there’s a lot to remember about the intergalactic colonizers, we created an abridged guide to everything Skrully, from Skrulls and Super-Skrulls to notorious Skrull supervillains.

That’s right: There’s more than one type of Skrull.

We all know the Skrulls are fixated on invading other planets (mostly Earth), and fighting the Kree. Most Skrulls are shapeshifters, which allows them to pseudo-assimilate with the humanoids on any planet, without actually get detected.

However, you might still be wondering why the Skrulls have enough beef with the Kree (and vice versa) to start a war.
