History:

(Marvel Boy II#5 (fb) - BTS) - Merree was a member of the 18th Kree Diplomatic Gestalt genome-boosted with insect traits. She was in a relationship with fellow Gestalt member Noh-Varr. After the Gestalt negotiated the Kree/Skrull ceasefire to end millennia of hostility they answered a distress calls from five civilizations on their way back home to Hala. Encountering three Astro-Gods exploring the Hypoverses the 18th Kree Diplomatic Gestalt got stranded in Macrospace and ended up splintered across realities. They fought and survived a long journey back to their home reality.

(Marvel Boy II#1) - The 18th Kree Diplomatic Gestalt, including Merree, finally closed in on their home reality, but their SOS signal was intercepted by Doctor Midas and locked them into his reality. Merree called Noh-Varr via intercom and told him, after their voyage through ten billion parallel realities, that she loved him. She was interrupted by missiles shot from at the dimensional schooner Marvel by Doctor Midas' soldiers. Merree died in the ship's destruction!

(Marvel Boy II#5 - BTS) - Noh-Varr told Plex to open his memory and show Exterminatrix (Oubliette Midas) a quick rundown of 18th Kree Dipolomatic Gestalt's voyage back home to their reality. Merree was shown as well.

Merree's construct actually had more appearances than Merree herself, which is no surprise because she died in her first appearance.

CLARIFICATIONS:
Merree has no known connection to:


Merree construct

(Young Avengers II#12 (fb) - BTS) - Loki unconsciously created from his guilty conscience, using the magic stolen from Wiccan, constructs of former lovers of the Young Avengers members including Merree.

(Young Avengers II#10 - BTS) - The Merree construct joined Leah's support group of exes from Young Avengers members.

(Young Avengers II#10) - In a magic circle created by Leah, Oubliette, Merree, Annie, Ultimate Nullifier and Patriot waited for the arrival of Leah and Hulkling. Merree told the group how how Noh-Varr had forgotten about avenging the death of her and his friends within days when he hooked up with Oubliette Midas, which was typical for Noh-Varr in her opinion. When Oubliette said that it was no wonder that Noh-Varr had dumped Meree, she defended herself by saying that she had died and wasn't dumped. Hulkling left the group after listening for a while and ended up caught by Mother, who Leah and the others were working for.

(Young Avengers II#11) - Leah sent a photo with her smartphone to Loki showing herself, Annie, Merree, Ultimate Nullifier, Oubliette, Patriot and Mother with Hulkling trapped in Mother's home dimension. Leah then told Loki that Mother would release all the evil counterparts of the Young Avengers on Earth. While Leah's support group including Oubliette waited in Mother's dimension for the Young Avengers, Mother herself called Wiccan's parents to tell them that Wiccan would soon be coming home.

(Young Avengers II#12) - While waiting Merree and Annie commented on Oubliette's fake nails and were disguested by her because she painted her fingernails with poison. Oubliette commented that Annie and Merree obviously didn't know if they wanted revenge or love from Noh-Varr, but she knew that she could have both at the same time. When the Young Avengers arrived in Mother's dimension Merree flew into action and punched Hawkeye (Kate Bishop).

(Young Avengers II#13) - Merree kept going after Noh-Varr's current girlfriend Kate Bishop. Leah stopped the fight and disappeared with Oubliette and her other allies after Loki admitted that he had been working with Mother from the start and that he had been manipulating the Young Avengers all along because he wanted to control Wiccan when he rewrote the rules of magic.
