(Marvel Double Feature...Thunderstrike/Code Blue#16/2 (fb) - BTS) - After the death of their father, Kenneth and Kevin Krask took over their father's law firm, and specialized in class-action lawsuits against the super hero community.

(Marvel Double Feature...Thunderstrike/Code Blue#13/2 - BTS) - Over the years Krask & Krask got millions from insurance companies in lawsuits against Tony Stark, the Avengers and Fantastic Four. They were known ambulance chasers.

(Marvel Double Feature...Thunderstrike/Code Blue#16/2 (fb) - BTS) - They made career out of suing super heroes and their insurance companies over every damage.

(Marvel Double Feature...Thunderstrike/Code Blue#13/2 - BTS) - Krask & Krask filed a $50 million dollar lawsuit against the city over the damage caused by a Doombot that was made worse by deploying Code: Blue against the robot.

(Marvel Double Feature...Thunderstrike/Code Blue#14/2 - BTS) - Not wanting to take any more risks due to the lawsuit filed by Krask & Krask, Jim Young, a representative of the mayor's office, recalled Code: Blue after they were sent out to deal with the Wrecker by Captain Shelly Conklin. They were allowed to go after the Wrecker when Thor, who had been called in by Young, had left.

(Marvel Double Feature...Thunderstrike/Code Blue#15/2 - BTS) - Jim Young was in the process to negotiate a $12 million settlement over the lawsuit filed by Trask & Trask when he heard that Shelly Conklin had sent Code: Blue out for another mission without his permission and even joined them.

(Marvel Double Feature...Thunderstrike/Code Blue#15/2) - Krask & Krask received confirmation of the fight between Code: Blue and the robot Thermal Man despite the lawsuit against the city. Kenneth saw no reason to settle with the mayor's office after this because they could get so much more money in an actual lawsuit. Kevin suggested they get Jim Redfield, the owner of Redfield Electronics the company that was destroyed during the incident, to sue the city.

(Marvel Double Feature...Thunderstrike/Code Blue#16/2) - Krask & Krask were suing the city for $50 million on the grounds that Code: Blue was an "insufficient response" to the recent Doombot rampage and the Thermal Man's attack, and that the Avengers or other super-heroes should have been called in to minimize damage. Foggy Nelson came to the offices of Krask & Krask with Lt. Stone (field leader of Code: Blue) for a deposition. Foggy represented the city's insurance company Delmar, and argued their evidence, but to avoid a trial he agreed to a settlement of $12 million, which the Krask brothers rejected. They proceeded with the deposition of Lt. Stone. Daredevil was following Foggy Nelson around to watch over him, and sensed an "emanation of evil" and entered the building.

   Suddenly, giant electrical sparks started shooting out of the walls, and formed themselves into a giant floating Kronin Krask head. Krask revealed that he had learned to control electrons while in the machine, and took over all electrical systems in the building. He told his sons he wanted to be declared a living energy person. They wanted him to stay dead so they could keep their inheritance. He heard them, and said they must comply, or he would erase Wall Street's computers and collapse the U.S. financial system.

   Code: Blue and Code: Gray, the city's "super civil servants," worked together to lure Kronin Krask into cyberspace and trap Krask's mind and energy form on a compact disc. Foggy Nelson and Code: Gray's Woodrow Truesmith agreed to give Kronin Krask back to his sons, but only if they agreed to a mere $500,000 settlement, otherwise they would challenge the Krask brother's inheritance on the grounds that their father was still alive. They gave the disc of him to his sons after they agreed to Foggy's terms.

(Wolverine and the X-Men I#32 - BTS) - Kevin and Kenneth Krask joined a video conference of the Hellfire Club and were introduced by Kade Kilgore to the Hellfire Academy's headmaster Sabretooth and the school's all-new Hellions team.

(Mighty Avengers II#7 - BTS) - Cortex Inc. became employers of Krask & Krask, who helped get Gideon Mace declared sane and out of the psych ward.

(Mighty Avengers II#7) - Kenneth took the case to get small-time extremist Kenny Driscoll, one of Mace's men, out of prison when he was arrested for arson. As soon as Driscoll was out Kenneth left him for Cortex Inc. to take him out.

(Mighty Avengers II#7 - BTS) - Kenneth called the news and the police while the Mighty Avengers tried to stop one of their own, White Tiger, from killing Gideon Mace at the American Policy Research Initiative's HQ in Hell's Kitchen.

(Mighty Avengers II#7) - At the American Policy Research Initiative's HQ in Hell's Kitchen Kenneth was upstairs with Gideon Mace while Spectrum posed as Mace downstairs with Kevin Krask and the Mighty Avengers. They defeated White Tiger, who had given control to the Tiger God to kill Mace for killing her family. Mace was impressed at the fast arrival by the police after White Tiger's attack and thanked Kenneth for his quick thinking. Kenneth revealed to Mace that Kenny Driscoll would not be a problem anymore because he had been taken care of by Cortex Inc. (he was killed).

(Mighty Avengers II#8 - BTS) - Krask & Krask acted as Mace's lawyers against White Tiger, while She-Hulk was going to defend her. She-Hulk considered the Krask & Krask no light-weights in the court.


(Immortal Hulk#9 (fb) - BTS) - Kenneth got Bushwacker out of prison for the military operation Shadow Base.

(Immortal Hulk#9 (fb)) - Kenneth visited his client Absorbing Man in prison to send him love from his wife Titania and ask him for her if she should break him out. Creel declined because Titania was doing well working for Roxxon. Kenneth wasn't sure why Creel wasn't approached about working for Roxxon, but Creel revealed that he declined the offer because he had already planned a diamond heist. Kenneth then revealed that there was actually a legitimate way to get Creel out of prison like Kenneth's other client Bushwacker, but only if Creel was willing to work for Shadow Base. Creel took the offer.
