(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 &am; 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 the Krask & Krask, who helped get Gideon Mace declared sane and out of the psych ward.

(Mighty Avengers II#7) - At the American Policy Research Initiative's HQ in Hell's Kitchen Kevin participated in a ruse to lure White Tiger into a trap because she sought vengeance against Mace for killing her family years ago and had given control to the Tiger God. While Luke Cage and Falcon guarded the building and Spectrum posed as Gideon Mace, Jennifer Walters discussed with Kevin Krask the legal troubles his client Gideon Mace was in. Kevin knew that Walters had nothing on Mace without the arsonist Driscoll and was not afraid for Gideon's life because he was sure he was well protected as long as the Mighty Avengers were there. Kevin got to safety when White Tiger attacked.

(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 Brothers no light-weights in the court.


(U.S.Avengers#10 (fb) - BTS) - At some point Kevin Krask became an elected senator (presumably for New York).

   He became the Advisor on Superhuman Relations in the White House following the ousting of Hydra, who had temporarily taken over the United States under the leadership of an alternate version of Captain America (Steve Rogers).

(U.S.Avengers#10) - As the new liaison of the U.S.Avengers Kevin Krask had a meeting with A.I.M. leader Roberto Da Costa. Kevin watched a video of the U.S.Avengers fighting against a Hydra terror cell and wasn't impressed. He became annoyed when Da Costa told him that the U.S.Avengers were aided during this fight by the foreign super-team Champions of Europe. Krask tried to make it clear that Da Costa wanted to be friends with him because he was now the team's new liaison. The former liaison General Robert Maverick, who had also served with the U.S.Avengers as Red Hulk and made them a subsidiary of S.H.I.E.L.D., had been sent his resignation letter because it was a conflict of interest to serve the government and A.I.M. at the same time. Krask informed Da Costa that things were about to change for A.I.M. and the U.S.Avengers. Krask wanted to replace S.H.I.E.L.D. with A.I.M. as America's own super-spies with Da Costa at the top and under the government's control. He also demanded changes to the roster of the U.S.Avengers because Cannonball was seemingly dead and he considered the rest of team, including Dr. Toni Ho, Squirrel Girl and Enigma (Aikku Jokinen), too low tier. At this point Da Costa had enough of Krask and explained to him that he and not A.I.M. had made a deal with General Maverick. Krask was sure that it didn't matter because Da Costa was the leader of A.I.M. and the government owned him. Da Costa quit A.I.M. with a text message and revealed that he had transferred all his assets to the A.I.M. account that morning before the meeting, including the digital key to the headband he wore to regulate his powers and kept him alive. Infuriated Krask followed Da Costa out of the office and couldn't believe what he had done because now Da Costa had destroyed his own life just to make himself completely worthless to Krask. Moments later Krask witnessed the arrival of Imperial Guard member Smasher (Isabel Kane), who needed to talk to Da Costa. Krask was then informed that somebody wanted to talk to him in the White House after his complete failure to bring A.I.M. and the U.S.Avengers under the government's control.

(Immortal Hulk#26 - BTS) - After Banner revealed in a video to the public that the covert Shadow Base was secretly funded through the U.S. military with $1.2 billion to hunt him down, vivisect him and create weapons from his body, the Secretary of Super Human Affairs Senator Kevin Krask at first publically denied the reports only to resign from his position shortly after.

Comments: Created by Roy Thomas, Jean-Marc Lofficier, Larry Alexander & Charles Barnett.

Kenneth and Kevin Krask were originally a sub-profile in Kronin Krask's profile.

Kevin shrunk between his first appearance and his days as Senator. He was originally a bit smaller as Foggy Nelson (5'10"), which would make him around 5'9". In U.S.Avengers Roberto Da Costa towers over him and Kevin could barely reach Roberto's chin with the top of his head. Roberto is 5'8"! Either Roberto's height has increased during his time with A.I.M. through science because he sought to start a career in basketball and had to become at least 6'6" or something happened when the Marvel Universe was recreated and poor Kevin Krask is now barely 5' tall.
