Mel-Varr is a young Kree from Nova Hala IV whose father, General Pad-Varr, ridiculed him for spending so much time at the computer daydreaming about fighting Inhumans after failing to be accepted to the Kree Academy to continue the thousand-generation House of Varr family tradition of serving as warriors of the Kree Empire.[1]

Cosmic Cuties

To prove himself worthy, Mel-Varr used an analytical system of various metrics to sort for potentially weak Inhuman targets, seeking to gain favor with the Empire by capturing one in a purely symbolic victory.

Mel-Varr disguised as Marvin Ellis

The computer suggested the newly transformed Moon Girl to be the lowest threat level, so Mel-Varr assumed the identity of Captain Kree, in honor of Mar-Vell, and traveled to Earth where he posed as Marvin Ellis, a new transfer student to Public School 20 Anna Silver who had allegedly just moved to New York from Kalamazoo, Michigan.[1]

He attempted to befriend Lunella to get closer to his target; however, she had not yet learned to control her newly manifested powers, and fled the school until she and Devil Dinosaur could find a way to swap back into their proper bodies.[2]

The next day Marvin, Lunella, Eduardo, and Zoe were put in the same group for a science project, but didn't get along. That night Captain Kree responded to Lenny and his partner robbing a store called Candy Party on the Lower East Side and then jammed NYPD bands to prevent them from responding before Moon Girl did. He attempted to arrest her for deserting the Kree Empire and betraying them with her cowardice; however, Mel-Varr was no match for Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur who dispatched him after a brief skirmish. After another tense day at school, the pair faced off yet again, but this time Captain Kree damaged the Q train tracks over the Manhattan Bridge, endangering civilians, and drawing the attention of Ms. Marvel.[3]
