What do you do when a group of 4 superpowered heroes beat your army? Create a single being with their own powers. Introduced in Fantastic Four #18 (1963) by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby, after their defeat at the hands of the Fantastic Four, the Emperor of the Skrulls arranged for one of his finest soldier to be genetically changed to have all the powers of the F4, creating the first Super-Skrull. He would and battle the F4 a number of times, including taken the place of Sue and Johnny Storm’s father. The real father would die saving his children. Super-Skrull would constantly face defeat. He would go onto to battle many other of Earth Heroes, including Thor, Spider-man and most famously Captain Mar-Vell, particularly during the Kree/Skrull War.
He would later become a minion of Thanos, but was constantly defeated by Mar-Vell. He would also create new desguises like Joshua Plague and Captain Hero, sometime pretending to be a hero. He would even take the place of many heroes, including Iron Fist for many months before being discovered. Disgrace constantly, he eventually saw himself locked in the Negative Zone prison, only to escape and help the resistance against the Annihilation Wave. He would later pretend to help the Skrull Empire in the Secret Invasion. He would eventually become Emperor of the Skrull Empire but would succeed the throne to Hulking when peace was found between Kree and Skrulls.
As one of Fantastic Four’s most famous villain, Super-Skrull has had a few figure over the years. When Toybiz launched a Fantastic Four Classic line before they lost the license, they release a figure as part of that line with 2 variants, both translucent but one was orange and another was clear. When Hasbro launched the Fantastic Four Walgreens exclusive, there was a listing that he would be released as an exclusive for that but instead Hasbro decided to make him the BAF for the First Fantastic Four wave of the Infintiy line.
Recommend Figure: Hasbro Marvel Legends Fantastic Four Super Skrull wave – Super-Skrull (BAF)
- When he was first shown, the only thing that was different from a standard Skrull soldier (beside the extra powers) was the height and bulk of the character. He wore the standard Skrull Soldier uniform, which would be his default form for many years until it was updated in Annihilation (See needs below)
- Why you need it for your collection?:
- If you are a Fantastic Four collector, then this is an absolute MUST, as he is one of their most recognizable villain. Cosmic, Mar-Vell, Avengers and many more would like this was well as he has battle many heroes and even villains. Essentially, this work for most collections.
- Does it need a remake?:
Below you will find a gallery of suits that still need to be made. I have included what I think are the possibilities of them being made. Note that these are my personal opinions and not fact. Please let me know if I have missed anything.
I only included this different default forms and not anything he transformed into.
