The first time the Fantastic Four ever encountered Skrulls, Reed Richards' inspired solution to deal with them involved hypnotizing the aliens to believe themselves to be cows. Years and a few hiccups later, those cows went to the slaughterhouse and their meat shipped to stores everywhere for purchase and consumption. For most, this proved a non-issue. For some, however, it meant shape shifting abilities and death from a disease called "Skrullovoria Induced Skrullophobia."
The Skrull Kill Krew provided a direction for those non-privileged few. The Kill Krew was led by Ryder. Ryder’s chosen display of power was to turn his dreadlocks into Gorgonesque snakes. The African-American Ryder’s first unlikely partner was Moonstomp, a skinhead from the U.K. They quickly brought in Dice, a Shaggy-esque surfer dude, and Riot, a liberty-spike sporting punk-rock-girl with a proclivity for giant armored insectoid forms. The fifth member of the crew was Catwalk, a former model who favored feline shapes. The team spent their last months on Earth using their powers to eliminate Skrulls, a sort of vengeance by way of genocide plan. The Skrull Kill Krew live to Kill all Skrulls on sight. They have had adventures with such heroes as Captain America, and the Fantastic Four. The Skrull Kill Krew disappeared from sight for several years.
While searching for help to battle the alien Skrull invasion, 3-D Man crash landed in the desert of New Mexico. He was spotted by a Skrull posing as She-Thing of the New Mexico Initiative team, the Mavericks. Using his goggles 3-D Man was able to immediately identify her as a Skrull, and she was quickly taken out from behind by Ryder and Riot of the Skrull Kill Krew.
