- —Captain Glory[src]
Glah-Ree was a Captain in the Kree Armada. While fighting Takolian warriors, his squadron was slain. Before his imminent demise, Captain Glory was pulled away from the battlefield into the Grandmaster's Cosmic Game Room, together with other strangers, whom the Grandmaster banded together to form the Lethal Legion. The team's objective was to battle in a contest on the Grandmaster's behalf against the Challenger's Black Order. Their prize for winning would be being allowed to live. If they lost, the Grandmaster would return each member of the Lethal Legion to certain death.
Before the competition began, both teams were teleported to the planet chosen as battleground, Earth, for recon. The Lethal Legion and the Black Order got into a fight, but were stopped by their respective masters since the contest had yet to start. On the first round, each team was divided in half to fight for the possession of two Pyramoids placed on Earth. Captain Glory was in the half of his team dispatched to Cusco, Peru. Their fight was interrupted by a group of Avengers, and the round ended unexpectedly when the Human Torch seized the Pyramoid before either team could. The other Pyramoid had been captured by the Black Order's Black Dwarf. With the round over, both competing teams withdrew.
When the second round began, all members of the Lethal Legion except Ferene the Other went for the Air Pyramoid placed in Los Alamos, New Mexico, and confronted a group of Avengers trying to stop them. After Red Wolf claimed the Pyramoid, the Lethal Legion was almost entirely defeated. Captain Glory managed to escape with Mentacle after she had used her powers to obfuscate the heroes' vision for a brief moment. Unfortunately, they were both intercepted by the Challenger's secret player, the Hulk. The Hulk landed on Captain Glory and broke his spine, and took down Mentacle before continuing his rampage.
Following the end of the contest and the Avengers' victory over the Challenger, the Lethal Legion regrouped and escaped to Knowhere, with Glah-Ree having seemingly recovered from his injury. Since they all were facing near-death situations when the Grandmaster recruited them, none of them had anywhere to return. They decided to stay together and see what could their combined power accomplish.
Captain Glory returned to the fold when the Kree and Skrull empires merged to form the Alliance in order to oppose the vengeful plant-like species called the Cotati, joining the royal guard of Emperor Hulkling. The Alliance's attack on the Cotati at their base in the Blue Area of the Moon was intercepted by the Avengers and the Fantastic Four due to the Cotati's pacifist pretense, which bough the Cotati enough time to show their true nature and cripple the Alliance's fleet to then launch an invasion on Earth.
While the Alliance worked with Earth's heroes to stop the invasion, Glah-Ree became disgruntled by Hulkling's refusal to sacrifice lives in battle. Captain Glory also deduced that fellow royal guardsman and former Kree leader Tanalth the Pursuer was secretly a Skrull. When confronting Tanalth privately, she revealed herself as Hulkling's grandmother, R'Klll. Glah-Ree then helped R'Klll abduct and impersonate Hulkling so that she could order the deployment of the Pyre, a star-detonating device that could destroy the Earth to erradicate the Cotati. However, Glah-Ree also intended to expose R'Klll after the victory in hopes to tear the Alliance apart and cause the return of the Kree/Skrull war since it was the conflict he had lived to fight.
The real Hulkling was eventually liberated, and he confronted R'Klll. Concurrently, the Cotati was using an Omni-Wave Projector in a psychic attack against the Alliance. But when their weapon was turned against them, it caused its psychic blast to instead strengthen the bonds between the Kree and the Skrulls. This caused Captain Glory to experience a change of heart and expose R'Klll as an impostor. Following the defeat of both R'Klll and the Cotati, Hulkling attempted to punish Glah-Ree for the complot with a diplomatic posting. Glory refused at the risk of being sent to a penal stockade instead, arguing that as a genetically-modified soldier, he wasn't made for peace, and offered himself to Hulkling's service if the need came to be. This moment finally came when Dormammu possessed Ego the Living Planet and sent his army of Mindless Ones to attack Throneworld II and Skrullos. Emperor Hulkling freed Captain Glory so he could hold back the invasion but he was overwhelmed and seemingly killed.
Powers and Abilities
Captain Glory is an enhanced Kree Super-Soldier bestowed with a number of powers and abilities by the Kree Empire. Key amongst these special talents are the typical physical enhancements that all unaltered and augmented Kree possess, such as superhuman strength, speed, endurance, durability, stamina and the like. A couple of other faculties he possesses similar to the late Captain Mar-Vell includes the ability to harness and redistribute internalized ambient energy. Energy which he quite possibly uses for flight, augmented physicals and the practice of discharging potent energy bursts from his hands. He was also conditioned to not feel guilt over his actions, making him immune to Robbie's Penance Stare while in his guise as the Ghost Rider. Captain Glory also boasts regenerative abilities, the potency of which remains uncatalogued, but it was strong enough to mend his broken back after the Incredible Hulk shattered it.
- Master Combatant: He was a highly skilled warrior both in terms fighting unarmed and planning attacks.
- Captain Glory was originally envisioned as a "Kree Captain America." Additionally, Al Ewing has stated it's plausible this character could be the Marvel Universe counterpart of Earth-200080's Captain Glory, the father of the universe-displaced Marvel Boy.
