History: (Avengers I#96) - Kalxor was the commandant of a Skrull armada headed toward Earth during the first Kree/Skrull war. However, on their way there, they detected a single ship approaching them. Unbeknownst to them, the ship belonged to the Avengers, en route to rescuing several of their number. Believing it to be a trick, Kalxor ordered a visual image to see if there was really just one ship. When he looked at the visual image, he saw an entire fleet instead of one ship, and was about to order a retreat when the emperor of the Skrulls contacted him and told him that perhaps the fleet was yet another trick and there actually was one ship. 

    Their ruse discovered, the Avengers attacked the Skrull ships and entered Kalxor's ship. Kalxor was then confronted by the Avengers and since he knew that their powers were not typical of humans, he appeared to decide to have his legions fight them, but before he could, the Emperor interrupted. The emperor instructed Kalxor to execute "plan Delta." Kalxor shouted to order for plan Delta to be executed, and he immediately found himself in the merciless onslaught of the Vision's fists. Vision beat Kalxor up very badly until the Avengers pulled him off . Kalxor then told the Avengers what they wanted to know.




Comments: Created by Roy Thomas and Neal Adams.

    The reason that the Vision snapped and almost killed Kalxor was because Kalxor's armada was standing between him and the Scarlet Witch, for whom he had just admitted to himself that he loved issues earlier.
