(Maximum Security#1 (fb) - BTS) - During the events of Maximum Security, the Intergalactic Council resolved to occupy humanity -- in order to minimize humanity's interference with intergalactic affairs -- by sending numerous extraterrestrial criminals to Earth while quarantining Earth's solar system by an impervious barrier of energy generated by a million "watchtowers" at the fringes of their system. 

(Maximum Security#1 (fb) - BTS) - Ronan the Accuser was charged with by Earth's warden and commanding the Citadel ship, which was sent in Earth's lower mesosphere, cloaked to refract light around itself, but traceable via heat imaging. Why'rion was one of numerous technicians stationed aboard the Citadel.

(Maximum Security#1 - BTS) - After Hank Pym detected the Citadel ship in Earth's atmosphere while seeking to find how the alien criminals were being sent to Earth, and a contingent of Avengers (Captain America, Goliath, Iron Man, Scarlet Witch, Triathlon, USAagent, Vision, Warbird, Wasp) investigated.  As they penetrated the cloaking field, however, the Citadel's weapons array blew up their quinjet. Surviving the assault, the Avengers were pulled by tractor beam into the Citadel.

(Maximum Security#1) - Once the Avengers were inside, Ronan told Why'rion he could terminate the containment field, as the Avengers were no threat to them.

    Ronan then related how the Intergalactic Council had chosen to deal with the problems humanity had caused. When the Avengers argued against Ronan's participating in such activities, he transported them back to Earth.

(Maximum Security#1 (fb) - BTS) - At some point, a contained form of Ego the Living Planet was sent to Earth by the Supreme Intelligence to potentially consume and replace the planet and/or allow the Ruul to harvest Ego's energies for the conquest campaigns.

(Maximum Security#3 - BTS) - When Ronan and the Ruul acted in a failed attempt to stop the Avengers, Silver Surfer, Quasar, and others from banishing Ego from Earth, Why'rion may or may not have been involved on some level.
