Kree cannot breathe on Earth without special apparatus. Adaptation to Hala's powerful gravitational pull and high nitrogen content in the atmosphere has left the Kree with dense bodies that afford them superhuman strength and endurance. Some Kree females can psychically manipulate the desires or even the siphon the life forces of males.
Technology: The Kree have mastered space travel and space colonization. The Kree also possess advanced warp-drive starships, cloaking technology, advanced energy based weaponry, advanced medical technology, genetic engineering, psionic technology, advanced robotic, cyborg, and cybernetic technology, and advanced communication technology. They also have the Omni-Wave Projector technology which can be used as a weapon and as a communication device enabling communication throughout hyperspace.
The Kree is an extraterrestrial humanoid race who have created a vast empire in the Greater Magellanic Cloud and have, on certain occasions, trafficked with the beings of Earth. The Kree race began on the planet Hala in the Pama system long before the first mammals appeared on Earth. The original Kree had blue-coloured skin (later generations interbred with genetically-compatible aliens to produce the pink-skinned second race). Outwardly humanoid to a large degree, Kree bodies are adapted to environmental characteristics on Hala that are un-Earth-like: notably, higher gravity and higher nitrogen content in the atmosphere. Although the Kree cannot breathe Earth’s atmosphere without special apparatus, their denser bodies afford them about twice the average human being’s strength and endurance. Despite their physical superiority and relatively advanced technology, the Kree race has reached the pinnacle of their evolutionary development.
The Kree Empire extends across thousand worlds in the northwestern lobe (Earth reference) of the Greater Magellanic Cloud. The Kree began their empire over a million years ago, within 100 years of acquisition of interstellar technology from then-benevolent race of Skrulls. The Skrulls at the time were attempting to foster a galactic empire based on free trade, and they landed on Hala to help the barbaric natives advance to the point where they could join. Finding that Hala boasted two equally intelligent life forms, the humanoid Kree and plant-like Cotati, the Skrulls proposed a test to determine the worthier race. Enraged that the Skrulls chose the Cotati as superior, the Kree slew the Skrull ambassador and seized the starship and its attendant technology. Mastering it within two generations, the Kree began to attack the Skrulls, thus beginning their now eons-old Kree-Skrull War.
Though Hala is the planet of the Kree’s origin, the planet Kree-Lar in the Turunal system is the capital of the Kree Empire as well as the seat of the government. The Kree Empire is ruled as a militaristic dictatorship. The current rulers are Crystallia Amaquelin and Ronan The Accuser.
