Talos was a Skrull military general during the Kree-Skrull War. In order to save his people from extermination, he send a group of non-combatants, including his wife and child, with a renegade Kree scientist Mar-Vell, who was working on a new type of engine that would allow the Skrull refugees to escape the galaxy dominated by the Kree Empire. For security reasons, even Talos did not know their destination, which led to his separation from his family. Eventually, in 1995 he took a Kree Starforce member Vers captive on Torfa, and the probing of her memories revealed that Mar-Vell was working under the name "Doctor Wendy Lawson" on the planet C-53, which Talos and a team of three other Skrulls proceeded to infiltrate.[1]

After the snap was reversed and Nick Fury returned to life, Fury took command of the Skrull corps for unknown reasons and had Talos impersonate him in the meantime. During this time, he was fooled by Quentin Beck, who pretended to be a interdimensional hero who fought The Elementals. He tried to contact Peter Parker in order to help them, but was ghosted by Parker and forced to recruit him personally. He even advised the hero about why Stark chose him as his successor. After the four Elementals were stopped, he confronted Peter if Stark was mistaken because of the errors Peter had committed. When Mysterio created an illusion where all the Elementals returned and attacked the Tower Bridge, he realized Beck was lying and Spider-Man stopped his plans. Soren, who was impersonating Maria Hill, advised Talos to tell Nick the truth; despite his protests, he decided to do it, though Nick simply hung up on him.[2]


  • Shapeshifting: Like all Skrulls, Talos is able to shape-shift into any living organisms that he visually perceives. He is also able to replicate their short-term memory.
