"You knew all along. Is that why we never hung out?"
"No, I just never liked you."
Captain Marvel and Minn-Erva[src]

Minn-Erva was a Kree sniper and a member of Starforce. Under the orders of the Supreme Intelligence and Ronan the Accuser, Minn-Erva and other members of the Starforce were sent on a mission to rescue the Kree Soh-Larr from Skrull captivity. However, the mission was sabotaged by the Skrulls. Minn-Erva and the Starforce eventually located and captured the defected Kree warrior Captain Marvel and her friends. As Minn-Erva and the Kree prepared to kill Nick Fury, Goose, Maria Rambeau, and the remaining Skrull refugees, Captain Marvel freed herself from the Supreme Intelligence, defeating Minn-Erva and the Starforce in combat, allowing enough time for Rambeau to pilot her ship. Minn-Erva finally attempted to eliminate Captain Marvel's new allies, only for Rambeau to shoot and destroy her ship, killing her in the process.


Kree-Skrull War

Abducting Carol Danvers

"Commander, she's still moving. Permission to fire?"
"Hold your fire."
"There's nothing left. The core's been destoyed."
"She absorbed its power. She's coming with us."
―Minn-Erva and Yon-Rogg[src]

In 1989, Minn-Erva was sent along with Yon-Rogg by the Kree Empire to retrieve the Light-Speed Engine created by Mar-Vell after the latter betrayed her race. They intercepted her and Carol Danvers during a flight and shot them out of the sky. After the plane crash-landed, Yon-Rogg shot and killed Mar-Vell. Minn-Erva continued to keep aim at Danvers, willing to eliminate her if she compromised the mission.

Danvers then shot the energy core of the engine, causing it to explode and infuse her with energy. After the explosion, Minn-Erva informed Yon-Rogg that the core was completely destroyed and that Danvers was still alive. She asked for permission to kill her, but he declined. Instead, he suggested taking her back to the Kree and turning her into a weapon.[1]

Ambush on Torfa

"Do you read me? Does anybody copy?"
―Minn-Erva and Yon-Rogg[src]

In 1995, during the final stages of the Kree-Skrull War, Minn-Erva and the rest of her Starforce teammates were send to Torfa in a mission to rescue the Kree spy Soh-Larr from Skrull forces led by General Talos. As they flew to Torfa, Minn-Erva overheard Korath the Pursuer sharing a personal story with the Starfoce about a disturbing encounter with a Skrull who impersonated him. After, Yon-Rogg debried the Starforce on their rescue mission followed by the Starforce claiming that their actions were for the good of the Kree Empire.

Once on Torfa, Minn-Erva and Att-Lass took their positions as snipers, preparing to shoot down what seemed to be Skrull soldiers. As Yon-Rogg, Danvers, Korath the Pursuer, and Bron-Char attempted to attack the Skrull village, Minn-Erva's contact with Yon-Rogg slowly waned. As the four Starforce operatives encountered the armed Skrulls, Minn-Erva shot the attacking Skrulls from the cliff.

However, Att-Lass asked her not to attack them, as they were just natives. However, Minn-Erva came to the conclusion that "Att-Lass" was actually a Skrull impostor as well as the natives. As the imposter attacked her, she fought him and ended up mercilessly killed the impostor, and the team took care of the rest before Carol got captured. With Danvers having been captured by the Skrulls, the Starforce's mission was compromised.[1]

"Once. It's a real shithole."

Some time later, Minn-Erva and the Starforce were contacted by Danvers, who escaped from the Skrull captivity and arrived on Earth. Using a modified payphone, Danvers communicated with Yon-Rogg and the Starforce, elaborating on her suspicions about the Skrull's true mission and mentioning Wendy Lawson's name. However, their contact abruptly ended. While Yon-Rogg decided to track down Danvers's location, Bron-Char asked Minn-Erva if she had traveled to Earth before, to which she replied yes.

After Carol Danvers and her friends make it to Kree starship to free Talos' family and the other Skrulls after realizing that they were fighting for the wrong side, Minn-Erva and the rest of the Starforce, led by Yon-Rogg, arrived and captured all of them. While Danvers was restrained and confronted by the Supreme Intelligence, Minn-Erva ordered the deaths of Nick Fury, Maria Rambeau, and Goose.

However, Danvers was finally able to overpower the Supreme Intelligence and remove her Photon Inhibitor, unlocking her true powers. Immediately after, she started to fight against her former teammates. When Minn-Erva was disarmed of her Kree Sniper Rifle, she quickly seized the nearest pistol and took the opportunity to tell Danvers that they never hung out as she never liked her before finding out her weapon was a harmless NERF gun, allowing Danvers to blast her.[1]

Mojave Desert Air Chase

"Minn-Erva, take them down in a dropshift."
"On it."
Yon-Rogg and Minn-Erva[src]
Captain Marvel (film) 196

Minn-Erva flying towards the Mojave Desert

With her remaining teammates either injured or unconscious, Minn-Erva was ordered by Yon-Rogg to shoot down the Quadjet bringing the Skrulls away along with Carol Danvers' friends. Taking a Kree spacecraft, Minn-Erva descended to the Mojave Desert and once there tried to shoot down the Quadjet, lightly damaging it. However, Maria Rambeau outsmarted and outmaneuvered Minn-Erva, causing her to lose sight of them. The Quadjet emerged, and Maria shot her spacecraft down, killing Minn-Erva in the process as her spacecraft's remains plummeted to the desert below.[1]


Minn-Erva was a Kree sniper, willing to take down anyone who opposed them, and showing a liking for killing when she asked his superior Yon-Rogg if he could let her shoot an unconscious Carol Danvers. For instance, Minn-Erva mercilessly eliminated Att-Lass's Skrull imposter, who was unarmed, without any hesitation. Having been the "star soldier" of Starforce before Danvers became part of the team, she felt slightly threatened as the newcomer was very talented, perhaps more than her. As such, Minn-Erva held a strong animosity towards Danvers, the reason for which they never hung out together. When Starforce went to rescue Danvers from Earth before she went rogue, Minn-Erva expressed discomfort and was even delighted when the Supreme Intelligence taunted Danvers for her failure.
