Appearances: Iron Man I#5 (September, 1968)

Powers/Abilities: None. Krylla had some combat training and was experienced in the use of Blast Pellets, an explosive device used by the Resistance. She had extensive knowledge of the complex pathways of the subterranean caverns used by the Resistance. She apparently had some scientific experience as well, and was adept at operating the Time Probe of the Resistance.

History: Krylla was born in the 24th Century of the alternate future known as Earth-68091. She was a member of the Resistance which had formed to oppose the tyrannical rule of the computer, Cerebrus. The Resistance was unable to slow the continued expansion of Cerebrus. Eventually, the Resistance created a "Time Probe" with which it brought Cerebrus' creator, Anthony Stark, forward into their time before he had built Cerebrus. They planned to execute Stark to prevent the creation of Cerebrus. Krylla blamed the society that allowed a computer to take over every facet of their lives, and opposed the planned execution of Stark. Cerebrus' servants located the Resistance after they had captured Stark, and attacked them to prevent them from carrying out their plan.

In the struggle, Krylla led Stark to temporary safety in the subterranean caverns of the Resistance. She then brought him to a museum that housed an old suit of Iron Man armor. Not realizing Stark was himself Iron Man, Krylla nevertheless hoped that as the creator of the armor, Stark would be able to utilize it as a weapon against Cerebrus. The two were then located and attacked by Cerebrus. Even Iron Man's power was as nothing against Cerebrus, who defeated him and prepared to blast him out of existence. Iron Man then revealed himself as Stark, temporarily leaving Cerebrus uncertain of how to act. Krylla took advantage of this momentary weakness and hurled a blast pellet into Cerebrus' central processing unit. The resulting explosion caused a chain reaction along the entire span of Cerebrus, across the planet, destroying it. Krylla then helped Stark back to the Time Probe, and returned him to his own era, mere moments after he had left it.

Comments: Created by Archie Goodwin and George Tuska.

Perhaps Krylla became one of the leaders of the new world order that would have formed follwing the destruction of Cerebrus. Maybe Cerebrus (like any good computer) had back-up versions of itself, and Krylla continues as part of the Resistance against it. Or maybe she just likes being a historian.
