The upcoming MCU Secret Invasion series will likely follow the storyline of the Marvel Comics event from the early 2000s and depict an all-out invasion of Earth by the Skrulls. Sure to be among them are some of the most powerful Skrulls in Marvel Comics, many of whom were participants in the cataclysmic battle for Earth in the original comic storyline.
The most powerful Skrulls include some of their most powerful rulers, like Queen Veranke, who could be the character Emilia Clarke is playing in the streaming series They also include some of the most powerful villains of the Fantastic Four, particularly the Super Skrull, a character who is certain to appear in the MCU, perhaps even in the upcoming series.
Like most Skrulls, Empress R’klll is able to adjust her entire physiology to mimic other people. She also possesses superhuman strength, stamina, and agility, a product of the Celestials’ genetic experiments on the early Skrulls in the ancient past.
Empress R’klll is also one of the cruelest and most cunning leaders of the Skrulls in Marvel Comics. She participated in the Skrull War with the Nova Corps that led to the complete destruction of the planet Xandar as Nova’s comic book fans know.
Jazinda is the daughter of Kl’rt, the first Super Skrull, and she’s one of the most powerful of her people to appear in Marvel Comics. She has all the basic powers and abilities of a common Skrull, including the ability to shapeshift into any form.
What makes her truly powerful is her ability to come back from death. Thanks to the Sy-Torak Gem, Jazinda is functionally immortal. She swallowed the gem and is now able to recover from mortal wounds regardless of their severity, as was seen in her adventures with She-Hulk.
Lyja is a Skrull agent who impersonated Alicia Masters for years in some of the most underrated Fantastic Four comic book story arcs. Ella’s primary ability is to shapeshift, and she possesses her superhuman strength, speed, and the ability to fly with her natural wings.
Lyja was distinguished from other Skrulls in her ability to fire blasts of energy that she could use as an offensive weapon or as a means to launch herself through the air. She’s likely to appear in the MCU Secret Invasion series, as she did in the comics.
Paibok threatened the Fantastic Four and was known as the Power Skrull. He shared most of the same attributes as other Skrulls, with the additional ability to generate ice by freezing the air. He’s also able to sculpt weapons from the ice.
Paibok is able to manipulate his body to take on the properties of virtually any kind of metal. This is similar to Colossus, one of the most powerful X-Men, and in some ways even more so as there is no limit to the types of metal he can transform into.
Queen Veranke is the leader of the Skrulls and the instigator of the Secret Invasion in Marvel Comics, one of the most important Marvel Comics events. She is able to shapeshift like other Skrulls, and in her case, she is able to mimic the powers and abilities of Spider-Woman, including her patented Venom Blasts.
Spider-Woman’s Venom Blasts are bursts of bio-electrical power that can incapacitate a character, as Veranke did to Echo in the Secret Invasion storyline. She was able to take on the powers and memories of Jessica Drew through a mystical rite.
Criti Noll is a variant of a Super-Skrull who has been genetically engineered with very specific abilities. In this case, she possesses the ability to shapeshift particularly into Yellowjacket, one of the most powerful variants of Ant-Man.
Criti Noll is able to dramatically increase her size and by extension her strength. She can also reduce her size to microscopic levels. In addition, she has other specific powers, including the superhuman speed of Quicksilver.
Sinister Six Skrull
The Sinister Six Skrull is one of the most powerful Skrulls in the comics. The Sinister Six on their own represent one of the greatest threats to Spider-Man, but the Skrull combines all of their individual powers into one terrifying form.
The Sinister Six Skrull fought as part of the Secret Invasion force and combine the powers of most of the Sinister Six’s original members, including Sandman, Lizard, and Electro, as well as later members like Venom, Rhino, and Hydroman.
Super Skrull (Kl’rt)
Kl’rt is the original Super Skrull in Marvel Comics and one of the Fantastic Four’s most powerful villains. Most Skrulls can shapeshift, but Kl’rt has been specifically bio-engineered to mimic the abilities of every Fantastic Four member.
Kl’rt is able to stretch like Mr. Fantastic, turn invisible like The Invisible Woman, generate flames like Human Torch, and change his skin to a rocket texture like The Thing. He is also able to combine all of these powers at once.
Khn’nr may be the most powerful Skrull of all in the comics, given that he is engineered specifically to embody the powers and abilities of the original Captain Marvel, Mar-Vell. Mar-Vell is one of the most powerful cosmic figures in Marvel lore, able to fly faster than light through space.
He could absorb and emit powerful bursts of cosmic energy, conjure illusions, and possessed a cosmic awareness that was close to omnipotence. When combined with his natural Skrull attributes of his, Khn’nr was an extremely powerful threat.
Hulking is the son of Mar-Vell, the first Captain Marvel, and the Skrull princess Anelle, giving him a Kree-Skrull hybrid physiology that makes him far stronger, durable, and agile than the average Skrull or Kree warrior. He also possesses weapons that make him even more powerful.
As the emperor of the combined Kree-Skrull Empire, he wields Excelsior, a mystical sword forged by the Skrull ruler Dorrek, capable of potentially unlimited cosmic power.
