Av-Rom was a Captain in the Imperial Kree Army and headed the squad sent to Earth to retrieve Hulkling and inform him of his heritage. A fight broke out between the Kree, Skrulls, Super Skrull, Young Avengers and New Avengers but was eventually stopped. Av-Rom was part of a mediation to decide what would be done with Hulking. He agreed to, and believed, that the young Kree/Skrull hybrid would spend half a year with the Skrull Empire and half a year with the Kree Empire. Av-Rom remained unaware that the person he believed to be Hulking at that time was in fact the Super Skrull impersonating him so Hulking could remain on Earth.
Captain Av-Rom resurfaced years later as a member of the Kree/Skrull alliance under the leadership of Emperor Hulkling. He was part of a crew led by Talos that was investigating the cease in communications from a number worlds which had fallen to the path of destruction of Knull, the god of the symbiotes. When Talos' crew approached one of these worlds, Gnarrat, their ship was boarded and taken over by symbiotes, and Av-Rom was the first to become possessed. When Talos and Tarna became the last uninfected crewmembers, they encountered Av-Rom trapped by symbiotic mass and begged Talos to kill him before Knull began taunting Talos through him. As Talos fled on an escape pod, Av-Rom and the infected members sat side by side with Knull, taunting Talos further before he escaped.
The infected crewmates were later ordered by Knull to kill Emperor Hulkling on his behalf, and they tracked him down to the resort planet of Little Chandilar during his honeymoon with Wiccan. When they attacked him, Hulkling recognized them as Talos' crewmates. After Wiccan used his powers to empower himself and Hulkling with something capable of repelling the darkness, Hulkling used his sword Excelsior to channel Wiccan's light and strip the symbiotes off Av-Rom and the crew. Afterward, the unconscious crewmates were boarded to Hulkling's ship to return with him to the Alliance for treatment.
