History: Noh-Varr was an ensign assigned to the dimension-hopping 18th Kree Diplomatic Gestalt, whose members were genome-boosted with insect traits. Adrift among the immense rainbow of realities that is Macrospace, Noh-Varr and his crewmates aboard the damaged dimension-schooner Marvel arrived at this reality's Earth via a dimensional flume. Viewing the Marvel and her crew as resources to be exploited, the ruthless Dr. Midas ordered the ship shot down.

A multi-trillionaire, Midas sought to acquire the dimension-schooner's advanced technology as a means of achieving mutagenic transformation through cosmic radiation, in essence duplicating the origin of the legendary super-team known as the Fantastic Four. The Marvel's sole survivor, Noh-Varr was taken prisoner by the Midas Foundation -- to be dissected and catalogued, along with his ship's remains. As Midas' technicians and scientists studied samples procured from Noh-Varr, they discovered him to be a living weapon.

Noh-Varr made good his escape from the Foundation's New Jersey research facility, retrieving the Marvel's remains and going to ground in the sewers under New York City's Times Square. Eager to avenge his crewmates, Noh-Varr declared war on Earth -- razing several city blocks simply to swear at humanity in skyscraper-size letters, and dispatching a squadron of S.H.I.E.L.D. super-soldiers. Before he could further pursue his vendetta against humanity, he was forced by Kree-Vann Directive Big Red to neutralize Hexus, the Living Corporation -- a world-ravaging virus from the Sunken Galaxy inadvertently let loose from the Marvel by Midas.

Doggedly pursued by both Midas and S.H.I.E.L.D., Noh-Varr befriended the femme fatale called Oubliette, the Exterminatrix ... his adversary's own daughter. Together, the two battled Midas' mindless Un-Entity as a S.H.I.E.L.D. detachment led by the multi-trillionaire boarded the Marvel. Disabling Plex, Midas finally gained access to the dimension-schooner's cosmic-radiation engine chamber, and set out to shatter his mortal body in favor of a higher form. He emerged with the combined elemental powers of the Fantastic Four: super-adaptive, super-fluid flame, air, mass and thought. As Marvel Boy lay near death, the first casualty of Cosmic Man, Oubliette flattened her father beneath the floorboards of reality with the decapitated head of Midas' Un-Entity. But a weakened Marvel Boy was apprehended by S.H.I.E.L.D. and imprisoned in the Cube -- the ultimate, inescapable prison, home to 400 of the most deranged and uncontrollable super-psychopaths is existence ... and marked by Marvel Boy as the capital city of the new Kree Empire!
