The Kree-Skrull War was a thousand year conflict between the Kree and the Skrulls. The war started when the Skrulls had refused to submit to Kree ideologies, and thus were marked as fugitives. Following the destruction of Skrullos, the Skrulls became an endangered species on the brink of extinction, and were forced into refuge, constantly on the move.
The Kree are major force in the galaxy that control a vast empire. With their extremely advanced technologies and characteristic arrogance towards other races in the universe, they seek to enforce other civilizations in the galaxy to submit to the Kree rules, frequently wage wars against the ones who don't accept it.
Destruction of Skrullos
At the peak of the conflict, the Kree destroy the Skrulls' home planet, Skrullos. This effectively turns the Skrulls into an endangered species at the brim of extinction, with the surviving Skrulls scattered around the universe, looking for a refuge.
During a test flight of the Light-Speed Engine piloted by Vers, They are shot down by Yon-Rogg. In the aftermath of the crash, Mar-Vell tries to destroy the engine so the Kree can't use it. But before she can, she is shot and killed by Yon-Rogg. Shortly after, Vers destroys the engine, causing a massive explosion that gives her cosmic powers.
Skrulls take Vers to their flagship in Earth's orbit, where they use a device to look through her memories for information regarding Light-Speed Engine. As they are searching her memories, Vers wakes up, frees herself from her bounds and fights her way to the ship's space pods. Talos damages the space pod, causing it to crash on Earth.Talos and three of the survivors from the Skrulls' Ship track down Vers to a Radio Shack store, where she's in a discussion with S.H.I.E.L.D. agent Nick Fury. One of them disguises himself as Phil Coulson, while another one attempts to shoot at Vers from a rooftop, but she spots him and fires a photon blast at him, causing him to flee. Vers follows the fleeing Skrull to the 7th Street/Metro Center station where they both take a train, while the S.H.I.E.L.D agents follow them in a car. Vers recognizes the Skrull in disguise and starts fighting him, but she's briefly restrained by the train's passengers, allowing the Skrull to escape from her, but not before he drops a strange crystal which she picks up.
Vers attaches the crystal that the assailant Skrull had dropped, to her uniform to extract its information, which leads her to Pancho's Bar where she meets with Fury again and he agrees to help her find information about Wendy Lawson. The two head to the Joint NASA USAF Facility and find classified information regarding Lawson and, to their surprise, Vers' past as a pilot on Earth. Fury, who had been instructed by the S.H.I.E.L.D director Keller to capture Vers, uses a pager to call them in, unaware that Keller was actually Talos in disguise. After 'Keller' and S.H.I.E.L.D agents arrive, 'Keller' accidentally blows his disguise to Fury, leading to a fight between the two. Despite learning that Fury called the agents, Vers decides to save Fury. The two escape the facility in a Quadjet.
After Danvers, Fury, Rambeau, Talos and Goose arrive at Mar-Vell's Laboratory, they are ambushed by Starforce, who send Danvers to commune with the Supreme Intelligence, imprison the Skrull refugees and decide to dispose of Fury and Rambeau. But before they could, Danvers overpowers the Intelligence in a mental battle, manages to break free from it and the Photon Inhibitor, and asserts control over her full range of cosmic powers. In the process, she causes the cells where the Kree were keeping the Skrull refugees to overload, giving them a chance to escape. Danvers retrieves the Tesseract and decides to give it to Fury. He refuses to touch it but Goose swallows it. Danvers then stalls Starforce, allowing Skrulls, Fury, Rambeau and Goose to escape in a Quadjet. She fights and defeats all of her former teammates. In a rage, Yon-Rogg authorizes Ronan and the Accusers to dispatch Kree Ballistic Missiles at Earth. He and Minn-Erva then embark on space pods to follow the Skrulls to Earth. Danvers damages his pod, causing him to crash, and destroys the incoming Ballistic Missiles. Ronan sends more forces to battle danvers but she destroys all of them along with one of the Accuser Warships accompanying him, forcing him to retreat. On Earth, Minn-Erva tracks down the Quadjet carrying Skrulls, but Rambeau defeats her in air combat, destroying her pod and killing her. Danvers arrives on Earth and defeats Yon-Rogg once more, sending him back in his still functioning pod to Hala with a warning message to the Supreme Intelligence.
