Powers/Abilities: As a Skrull, Kravo presumably possessed all of the standard capabilities and weaknesses of a normal member of the Skrull Deviant species. Specifically, this would most likely enable him to alter his size, shape, and color through mental concentration. Presumably Kravo was somewhat limited by his volume.

    Kravo was presumably an experienced warrior and strategist. He and his troops used some advanced technology as Thrust-Cycles and Magna-Rifles.

History:kravo-skrull-she-hulk-defeated
(She-Hulk II#3 (fb) - BTS) - General Kravo apparently led a Skrull plot to assassinate the Djaigon prince on his coronation day.

    The Fantastic Four uncovered this plot, and She-Hulk and Wyatt Wingfoot went to hold off a Skrull garrison long enough for Reed, Sue, and Johnny to reach the royal family.

    Kravo and his agents (at least 8 other Skrulls) captured both She-Hulk and Wyatt. She-Hulk had each arm and both legs bound in clamps attached to cables attached to the backs of Skrull thrust-cycles.

(She-Hulk II#3 (fb)) - As his warriors accelerated their thrust-cycles to full, Kravo taunted She-Hulk as an Earth-sow and telling her she would pay for wasting his time; he noted that after they had torn She-Hulk limb from limb there would still be ample time to hunt down Richards and his lackies.

    Initially grunting and pouring sweat from the strain, She-Hulk nonetheless frustrated by the Skrulls by noting how sweet it was the Wyatt was worried about her. When one of his agents noted that this was taking too long and that they needed the thrust-cycles to catch Richards, Kravo agreed, ordering the clamps holding She-Hulk to be released and noting that they would have to kill her the regular way, with magna-rifles.

    However, when the clamps were released, She-Hulk instead grabbed them with her hands and feet, mockingly telling the Skrulls that she could do this all day. Kravo urged his troops to ready their magna-rifles and fire on her, but She-Hulk told Wyatt to duck as she proceeded to pull/swing the cables, turning the thrust-cycles into weapons that took out both the pilot and the Skrulls on the ground, including Kravo.

Comments: Created by Dan Slott, Ron Fenz, Sal Buscema & Joe Sinott.

    Based on Wyatt's description of the events as an ultimate triumph of She-Hulk, it would seem most likely that the rest of the Fantastic Four were able to prevent the assassination of the Djaigon prince.

    This story took place during the period when She-Hulk had replaced the Thing in the Fantastic Four, from Fantastic Four I#265-300-or so...

CLARIFICATIONS:
Kravo
should be distinguished from:


Magna-Riflesmagna-rifles

    Magna-rifles are weapons used by individual Skrull warriors.

    The soldiers serving under General Kravo in the mission to assassinate the Djaigon prince on his coronation day carried magna-rifles to the Djaigon throneworld

    When She-Hulk proved too strong for the thrust cycles used in an effort to dismember her, Kravo prepared to have his soldiers use magna-rfiles to slay her (he considered this the "usual way").

    However, She-Hulk took out the soldiers before they could use the magna-rifles against her.

She-Hulk II#3

Note: The destructive power of the magna-rifles is undefined.

    Kravo obviously thought the magna-rifles could kill She-Hulk, but he obviously thought the thrust cycles could tear her apart.

    I don't have a listing for magna-rifles, so I'm honestly not sure if they've appeared before.

    If so, let me know, and I'll add the information...or expand this sub-profile into its own full profile at some point as indicated.

Thrust Cyclesthrust-cycles

    Thrust-cycles are single rider aircraft. They generate sufficient force to be able to tow battle cruisers out of space docks.
