Powers/Abilities: Like most Skrulls, Baryn had the ability to change his shape at will, although he didn't last long enough to show it. He was also an expert at using explosives and detonators, as well as Skrull-issue blasters.


(Avengers Annual I#14) - During a mission with a group of Skrulls to free the captive Prince Dezan, Baryn was shot down. After his death, "Malugin" picked up Baryn's detonator and attempted to blow open Dezan's cell door, causing an explosion that killed him as well.




Comments: Created by Roger Stern, John Byrne, and Kyle Baker.

The Skrull that I named "Malugin" was never actually named in the story.

Profile by Proto-Man.

Baryn or "Malugin" have no known connections to


Malugin was the third Skrull in the group that eventually freed Prince Dezan from the Klarr prison. He informed Raksor of Baryn's death and Raksor then ordered Malugin to pick up Baryn's detonator and use it. In the process of trying to figure it out, Malugin caused an explosion that blew open Dezan's cell door and killed Malugin.

 Malugin had the same shapeshifting ability that every member of his race possessed, although he did not have any experience with explosives.
