Cadre K is a group of Mutant Skrulls ("K-class Deviant Skrulls") who were eventually gathered into Cadre K by Charles Xavier, as an equivalent of his X-Men to fight the Skrull Empire, to rescue their kind from being culled at birth, and to agitate for mutant rights.
Roster includes Fiz, Nuro, R'tee, Spunje, Z'Cann, Goroth all with various powers. A number came into contact with Apocalypse and were forced into serving him during his plot to gain the power of the Twelve. Professor X of the X-Men who went into space to train them, giving them the name Cadre K.
Cadre K and Xavier returned to Earth during the Ruul's attempt to overtake the planet by turning it into an intergalactic prison. A wounded Z'Cann attempted to pass on vital information to Rogue. The information was received and the X-Men were reunited with Bishop. Z'Cann was fatally wounded, and was taken care of her by the X-Man Forge but recovered at the end and finally recovered from her wounds.
In a file compiled by Chancellor Kal'du for Veranke, the Cadre K was still rejected by the Skrull Empire. According to their information, including the massive depowering of Earth's mutants, they seem to be still powered, not affected by the "No More Mutants" spell.
Charles Xavier's death
Some time after the Avengers vs. X-Men conflict, the Skrull K'thron came to Earth, kidnapped most of the enemies of Cyclops and Captain America, and informed them that Cadre K had come to Earth in order to take revenge on the meta-humanity for the Skrull defeat during the Secret Invasion. K'thron brought a detector designed to detect those mutant Skrulls, who protected from other detectors by their specific physiology.
The Cadre K were revealed to not have made any plans for revenge against meta-humanity and had only wished to live in peaceful obscurity on Earth because they had nowhere else to run to. The fact their homeworld had been destroyed and they were still being hunted and hated by fellow Skrulls as "Deviants", caused them to flee to Earth to disguise as humans in South Dakota, America due to Xavier's past belief in America being a place where people can succeed because of their differences. They also decided to create a ranch to protect the Skrulls turned into cows by Reed Richards.
Afterwards, the team helped defeat Doctor Doom and destroy his forces in Latveria and continued to stay at their ranch in South Dakota.
