(All-New Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe a to Z Update#4/Supreme Intelligence entry) - In the Kree Year 4538, about 100,000 years (see comments) before Earth was involved in the Kree-Skrull War, the Supreme Council already existed and ruled.
In that year the Kree discovered that their hated enemies, the Skrull, had created a Cosmic Cube. In order to replicate such an universally powerful weapon, their Science Council devised the Supreme Intelligence, a cyber-organic supercomputer which contained the knowledge and the experience of the best Kree: generals, scientists, thinkers and so on. The Council's goal was to have the Supreme Intelligence to create for them an object of power equal to the Cosmic Cube. Despite their requests, the supercomputer refused, for it had calculated that the Cosmic Cube was too dangerous to construct. The collective mind calculator was kept working as advisor, but in time it acquired a power greater than the Council, becoming the absolute ruler of the Empire.
(Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe I#9/Sentry
entry) - It was the Kree Year 1220 (around 80,000
years before the Fantastic Four were changed by cosmic rays) when the
scientist Bronek developed the prototype of the Sentry and the Supreme
Council of the Kree Empire ordered the mass production for military
The Kree visited Earth for the first time around 25,000 B.C.
They performed genetic experiments on the prehistoric humans, which developed super powers in the following generations. Those beings would become the Inhumans, and the Kree would consider them as outcasts, slaves and cannon fodder for future wars.
(Inhumans I#1/2/3 (fb) - BTS) - The Kree hid the Somnotherm and the Kaptroids, devices to collect their Inhuman slaves if the need would arise, placing them beneath Attilan, the city of the Inhumans on Earth.
(Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe I#9/Sentry entry) - Sentry #9168 was stationed on an island in the Pacific Ocean, about 2,000 years before humankind was ready to fly to the moon.
(Captain Marvel I#16 (fb) - BTS) - The political influence of the Council not only came after the Supreme Intelligence, but also after Zarek, the Prime Minister, and Ronan the Accuser.
(Captain Marvel I#10 (fb) - BTS) - In a plan that involved infiltration and subsequent conquest of Earth, the Supreme Council reviewed the registrations of the operative unit involved: Captain Mar-Vell. The Council found that a group called "the Organization" could be useful for their purposes, estimating the great amount of resources that the Organization employed to build a giant robot. The Council evaluated that such an organization had the power of a good-sized Earth nation, and could be used to betray the powers governing Earth. Ronan the Accuser, on behalf of the Council, ordered Mar-Vell to gather information about the group.
When Captain Mar-Vell destroyed the Organization, the Council watched his actions from the Mother Planet, and sentenced him to immediate execution.
(Captain Marvel I#11 (fb) - BTS) - The Council watched while Captain Mar-Vell's execution was foiled by an attack of enemy forces.
(Fantastic Four I#98) - The Council Supreme watched Earth and discovered that the humans were ready to launch a mission to land on the Moon. The Council reckoned that such a technological advancement was a threat for the Kree Empire, because it meant that humanity would soon be ready to reach the stars. So, they ordered that the mission would end in a disaster. Sentry #9168, hidden and waiting on Earth, received the order and set off to execute it.
However, the intergalactic Kree message sent by the Council was intercepted by Reed Richard of the Fantastic Four, too, and his computer managed to translate the word "tranquility."
Richards correctly surmised that the Kree were up to something against the Moon mission; the Fantastic Four destroyed the Stimulator, foiling Sentry #9168's mission and Council's plan.
(Inhumans I#4 (fb)) - Around 20 years before the Kree-Skrull War involved Earth, the Science Council and military promoted the project that had to create a super soldier, forcing the researchers Falzon and his wife Murius to experiment on their own baby, born Arides.
(Captain Marvel I#16 (fb) - BTS) - The
political influence of the Council was not only less than that of the Supreme
Intelligence, but also less than Zarek, the Prime Minister, and Ronan the
(Inhumans I#4 (fb)) - After 20 years of experiments on Arides, Phae-Dor, one of the members of the Council, evaluated the achievements of the project. He was very satisfied of the result: Shatterstar!
(Inhumans I#3) - When the Kree empire was involved in the War of the Three Galaxies, the Science Council was led by Phae-Dor. The Kree empire decided that the Inhumans had become too dangerous as weapons and had to be taken back into the empire to serve it for war purposes. The Inhumans had lived on Sol III (Earth) for millennia, but the Kree empire still considered them little more than slaves as the Kree had created them.
(Inhumans I#1/2 - BTS)
- The Kree "masters from the stars" communicated with Maximus of the
Inhumans, warning him that the time had come for the Inhumans to be used
for the glory of the Empire. However, Maximus was imprisoned and could
not act according to the instructions of the "masters." Meanwhile, the
Kree had set a plan up to free Blastaar from his prison of (presumably secondary) Adamantium at
the bottom of the sea. A flaming meteor coming from space was sent to
destroy Blastaar's prison, and to remotely instruct him to free the
Kaptroids. Blastaar performed the task, and the Kaptroids began to
collect Inhumans into their metallic bellies. Black Bolt and the other
members of the Royal Family destroyed the Kaptroids and captured
Under order of the Supreme Intelligence, the result of the capture was monitored by the Kree Science Council.
(Inhumans I#3 (fb)) - The failure of the Kaptroids led to
the malfunction of the Kree Monolith under Attilan. The Council,
receiving different signals from the Monolith, deduced that the
recollection mission had failed. Furthermore, the Monolith malfunction caused earthquakes so
destructive that could change the topography of Sol III. In order to
complete the recollection mission, Phae-Dor reunited the Council, which dispatched Shatterstar to Sol III, to capture
(Inhumans I#3-6) - On Earth, in New York City, Shatterstar battled the Inhuman Royal Family and his father, Falzon, but the super-soldier was temporarily defeated.
Nonetheless, the Kree plans proceeded, because in the meanwhile, in Attilan, the Kree remotely controlled the Inhumans Leonus and Stallior, who freed Maximus, after which they took control of Attilan. When the Royal Family returned home, they were captured.
Half of the population of Attilan was loaded into
Shatterstar's ark to be transported to the galactic war. After nine days
of deprivation and torment, Black
Bolt screamed. The cataclysmic voice destroyed Attilan and the space
ark. Shatterstar was seemingly disintegrated by his own power.
(Inhumans I#8 (fb) - BTS) - Many star systems in the known galaxies had become aware of the approaching of the War of the Three Galaxies. On many inhabited planets, peace was broken, skirmishes arose, and the governments had to choose the side they thought could win the War.
The situation was well-known also on planet Stent, where the anarchists Warkon and the Demon-Rebels decided to fight the Kree, while the City-Keepers allied with the Kree.
Meanwhile, on Earth, the mind-controlling strategy proceeded. One hundred human beings fell under control of the nexus Space Station Web, ready to sabotage the defenses of the world.
(Inhumans I#10 / Inhumans I#9 cover only) - The Kree war
plans were seriously delayed by the explosion of the Space Station Web. Stenth
Demon-Rebels, led by Warkon
and helped by the Inhuman Royal Family and Falzon, managed to completely
destroy the gargantuan space station.
The only survivors were the Inhumans, who went back to Earth, with the knowledge of the impending War.
(Captain Marvel I#52) - Meanwhile, the Kree
had discovered that the solution for the problem of the Kree race
genetic stagnation could be worked around: she was the perfect mate
for Mar-Vell, and their offspring could produce a superior race free
from the genetic bonds that affected the Kree race. Pursuing such a
solution conflicted with the War pursued by the Council, War that
didn't address the far greater problem of the Kree race.
However, the Science Council kept on the aggressive line of conduit, wanting Mar-Vell as a weapon for the Empire. So, when Doctor Minerva succeeded in luring Captain Marvell onto her spaceship, she was contacted by Phae-Dor, who ordered her to abandon her project, to capture Mar-Vell and to return him to Kree-Lar. At Minn-Erva's refusal, Phae-Dor overrode her control over her cruiser and created a giant energy manifestation to subdue Mar-Vell. However, Captain Marvel defeated the manifestation.
(Captain Marvel I#53) - Captain Marvel learned more about
the War from Minerva, the Royal Family and Falzon. This information
drove Black Bolt and Captain Marvel to assault Hala where the Council
was reunited, to try to stop the escalation.
The Council, influenced by Por-Bat, had already decreed to start the war. A button on the desk of the Council had only to be pressed to unleash the attack to the Skrull Galaxy. The button was not pressed because Black Bolt and Captain Marvel infiltrated the chambers of the Science Council from within. While Black Bolt sustained the full weight of the Kree soldiers attack, he gave time to Captain Marvel to understand what was wrong into the Council's ranks and why it was so heavily oriented toward the war. His cosmic awareness pointed to Por-Bat, and the Truth Chair forced the councilman to reveal his true nature as a Skrull.
Captain Marvel clarified that the Skrull army was
ready to receive the Kree forces, luring them into a trap with the intent of wiping them
out. Phae-Dor acknowledged that the Council's plans had been mined from
the beginning so he cancelled the attack and retired the Kree forces.
The sabotage of Earth defenses was abandoned, and the Pursuer was
The War never actually started up and turned back to be a Cold War.
(Ms. Marvel#18) - In the months after Supreme Intelligence's shutdown, the Science Council kept on working without his guide. On Kree-Lar, Phae-Dor, still President of the Council, was warned by Bun-Dall that the Intelligence was alive again. Phae-Dor didn't believe him and told him not to worry. When they left the Hall, the Supreme Intelligence appeared on the great screen, laughing, keeping up his hidden agenda.
(Silver Surfer III#6) - Phae-Dor was still head of the Science Council, keeping the role even when he became Commander of Kree star-fleet in the war against the Skrulls, after they lost their shape-shifting powers.
