(Young Avengers II#7 (fb) - BTS) - The Skifflefuffles were a shapeshifting extraterrestrial race based on the planet Skifflefuffula that mostly became actors. Not wishing to become actors like everyone else and instead wanting to be more hardcore, a small group of young Skifflefuffles decided to pose as Skrulls because they thought Skrulls were cool. Soon deciding to build a weaponized flying car, dubbed the Cadillac 4200 Xenocrusher, to hunt down Kree, the young Skifflefuffles began stealing parts to complete their vehicle, all while still posing as Skrulls.

(Young Avengers II#1) - Still posing as Skrulls, the Skifflefuffles attacked the ship of Reality-200080's Noh-Varr, forcing Noh-Varr and his date Kate Bishop to go on the defensive.

(Young Avengers II#4 (fb) - BTS) - Noh-Varr and Kate eventually lost their "Skrull" pursuers, unaware of their true nature.

(Young Avengers II#7) - After months of stealing, the Skifflefuffles (still posing as Skrulls) completed the Cadillac 4200 Xenocrusher. Reveling in the completion of their vehicle, the Skifflefuffles jumped into the Xenocrusher's seats and prepared to cruise around hunting Kree, only to be stopped in their tracks by the arriving Noh-Varr and Kate Bishop with their Young Avengers teammates. The Skifflefuffles immediately hit the gas and attempted to flee from the Young Avengers in the Xenocrusher but Kate Bishop managed to hit the Xenocrusher with a harpoon gun, pulling the Young Avengers along for the ride. 

    While the Skifflefuffles fired on the Young Avengers, Wiccan cast a spell to transport them all back to where they had come from and upon being teleported back to their base, the Skifflefuffles ended up crashing the Xenocrusher into the outside of their own headquarters. Wiccan immediately teleported the Young Avengers and the Skifflefuffles (still disguised as Skrulls) back inside the headquarters, at which point Noh-Varr and Kate hit the Skifflefuffles with darts that prevented the Skifflefuffles from using their powers. Hulkling then grabbed one of the "Skrulls," only to witness it uncontrollably transform back into its true Skifflefuffle form.

    Hulkling quickly demanded to know what the Skifflefuffle was and it admitted it was a Skifflefuffle, at which point Hulkling asked the other Young Avengers if they had heard of Skifflefuffles before. When the Skifflefuffles admitted that they were shapeshifters who had chosen to appear as Skrulls because the Skrulls were "badass" and they didn't want to become actors like most other Skifflefuffles, a flabbergasted Hulkling realized that the Skifflefuffles had only been harassing the Young Avengers because they were trying to emulate the Skrulls. America Chavez then suggested the Young Avengers call the Skifflefuffles' parents and get them grounded from the cosmos so the Young Avengers themselves could then go get some breakfast.
