Early Life

Pitt'o Nili was member of the Skrulls, a race of extraterrestrial conquers. He was sent to Earth to infiltrate the Avengers, impersonating Captain America. As a Skrull he possessed the natural ability to shapeshift. But he also went through a mystical ritual to gaining his power and memories.

The Infiltration Begins

When Captain America returned from Asgard after a battle against Loki, the Skrull waited until the Super-Soldier was alone in his room. He then promptly knocked Captain America out with his stun blaster and signaled to his superiors that he was in position.[1]

As the "First Avenger"

He was also present when Hawkeye invited the Thing and the Human Torch of the Fantastic Four to play cards with T'Challa and them while Iron Man and Wasp went to the Baxter Building as their inviters Mr. Fantastic and Invisible Woman were still there (Humorously, he couldn't remember who the Human Torch was). When the Doombots attacked the mansion, he participated in the battle.

Later, after regrouping with Iron Man and Mr. Fantastic, they realized that the Wasp and Invisible Woman were captured by Doctor Doom. Skrull-Cap then accompanied the group in their rescue mission to Latveria.[2]

Later, when Tony visited Stark Tower, he asked Cap and T'Challa to help him move some armor. While doing so, they were attacked by A.I.M. who had used Technovore to attack all Arc Reactor energy signatures. Pitt also convinced Colonel Rhodes don his War Machine Armor to help defend the tower. Pitt helped the team against the A.I.M agents before Tony came in wearing his new Mark 9 armor. He eventually overloaded Technovore and destroyed him while Pitt used his new Energy Shield to block the rest of the team from the energy blast.[3]

Sometime later, Nili traveled back to Asgard with Iron Man to help bring back whatever was left of the Grey Gargoyle. They arrived, only to find Asgard under attack from Rock Trolls that had been enhanced by stone to attack Asgard. The Avengers defeated them but discovered that Grey Gargoyle was still alive and ruling Nornheim with Karnilla (the rightful ruler) still turned to stone. Cap and Tony, with the help of Thor, defeated Grey Gargoyle and returned all the petrified victims to their natural state.[4]

While they were on the hunt for the remaining Masters of Evil, Pitt'o (as Cap), Hulk, Panther, and Hawkeye found Living Laser stuck between states of energy. When they returned to the mansion, the found Baron Zemo who sought out the Avengers' help in taking down the Enchantress. Later when the Enchantress attacked, the Skrull impostor let Zemo get hit. After the fight was over, he approached Zemo, who said the Captain had changed. His only response was a dark sinister one: "You have no idea who I am" before knocking Zemo out.[5]

Return of the Kree

When the Kree returned to Earth due to Mar-Vell's insistence, Pitt'o Nili met them along with Iron Man and Hulk. When he noticed that Ronan the Accuser was Kree, he attacked, forcing the Avengers to join him. After a long battle, the Kree surrendered and Earth was free. Later that evening, he went into privacy to call his people and let them know that the Kree were on Earth and that the Skrulls needed to move up their timetable.[6]

Revelation

When out at a pizzeria to celebrate Ms. Marvel's inauguration, the Griffin attacked. But much like the rest of the Avengers, he simply watched Ms. Marvel fight the villain.

Back in the Avengers Mansion, Iron Man had informed his teammates about the Skrull infiltration on Earth from Nick Fury and accused each other of being a Skrull. After the clash, Iron Man, Ms. Marvel, and Black Panther left the team. When Hulk, Wasp and Hawkeye do the same thing, Cap-Skrull had convinced them to stay together as a team.

At an undisclosed location, he informed the Skrull Queen posing as Mockingbird and reported to her that the Avengers had disbanded and everything is set in motion, which pleases her. Then he kissed her hand.[7] After being able to get rid of the Hulk and turn him into the government, Pitt'o Nili informed Veranke of the team status.[8]

During the final assault of the Skrulls, when the invasion begun, this Skrull used his appearance and respect as Cap to influence the inhabitants of the Earth to surrender. When the real Steve Rogers arrived to Washington, D.C. along other impersonated humans who escaped from the Skrull ship, he was faced by Rogers and lost in hand to hand combat. When the Skrulls were finally defeated, he was, along Veranke and the Super-Skrulls, incarcerated in the Prison 42.[9]
