Norex was the Chief Science Officer of the Skrull Empire and Talos' second-in-command. He was stationed on the Skrull flagship who crashed on Planet C-53 in Los Angeles in 1995. Following the Ambush at Joint USAFA Facility, Norex and Talos arranged an alliance with Vers and Nick Fury in Louisiana. While covering for their journey to Mar-Vell's Laboratory, he is discovered and later murdered by Yon-Rogg.

Extracting Vers' Memories
Norex was present on the Skrull flagship, after General Talos captured Vers in the Ambush on Torfa. He stood alongside Talos while he was accessing her memories, hoping to find information regarding the Light-Speed Engine. When she staged an escape and fought the Skrull occupation on the ship, Norex, Talos and two other Skrulls took space pods to Planet C-53 in pursuit.
Arriving on Planet C-53
The four pods carrying Norex, Talos and two other Skrulls crash-landed in the Atlantic Ocean, on the coast of California, and later emerged at a beach during a sun-sprawling morning in Los Angeles. While familiarizing themselves with their surroundings, Norex and the Skrulls were given orders by Talos to locate Vers. To blend in with the rest of the beach, Talos and the Skrulls had simmed several human surfers. While Norex departed with Talos to further assimilate themselves into the bulk of human society, their Skrull comrades had located Vers and had engaged in a chase with a S.H.I.E.L.D. task force.
Negotiating an Alliance
After the Ambush at the Joint USAFA Facility, Norex accompanied Talos to a homestead in Louisiana. Norex disguised himself as Maria Rambeau in an attempt to stall her daughter Monica from discovering they were Skrulls. The two successfully persuaded their to-be human allies, including S.H.I.E.L.D. agent Nick Fury that they did not mean hostile intent and that they were offering an alliance, explaining to them that they were refugees on the run from the Kree.
Once the negotiation became a success, with Carol regaining her true memories, Norex helped in repairing the damaged Quadjet while Talos and their human allies prepared to venture to the laboratory in space. He volunteered to stay and become a decoy by disguising himself as Carol Danvers, while the real Carol, Talos, Fury and Maria, as well as Goose depart to find Mar-Vell’s hidden laboratory outside Earth's atmosphere.
Murdered by Yon-Rogg
- "What have you done to her?"
"You're too late."
- ―Yon-Rogg and Norex
The next day, Norex is confronted by Yon-Rogg on Earth. As a distraction, he attempts to stall for time disguised as Carol, but Yon-Rogg quickly sees through the deception and shoots Norex twice. Despite being killed, the distraction is success, with Carol and their allies manage to get into Mar-Vell’s hidden lab.
