Classification: Extraterrestrial technology

Creator: Unidentified Skrullian scientists

User/Possessors: Super-Skrull (Kl'rt)

First Appearance: Captain Marvel I#2 (June, 1968)

Powers/Abilities/Functions: The Oscilloscope has been found aboard Skrull starships. It was designed to assist the Skrulls in locating their Kree opponents. It identifies the radiation factor built into their battlesuits and other Kree constructs. Its sensors can be repelled by an aura of magnetism, such as those which surround Kree starships.

(Captain Marvel I#2) - Assigned to investigate the Kree's present activities on Earth, the Super-Skrull used the Oscilloscope aboard his spacecraft to determine the location of the Kree. Unable to locate the Kree spaceship the Helion (as it was then protected by an aura of magnetism), the Super-Skrull instead picked up signals which led him to Jeremy Logan, who was carrying a cannister he had stolen from Captain Mar-Vell.

Comments: Created by Roy Thomas, Gene Colan and Vince Colletta.

    We humans also have oscilloscopes but we don't use them to track the movements of the Kree (or even the Cree) - we formerly used them in television sets and more commonly use them in medical equipment such as heart monitors.
