Find out how the Kree have a played a part throughout 'Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.' history!

By: Jenn Fujikawa and Christine Dinh

Every Thursday, we look back at how the last five years of “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” influenced this past week’s episode. 

The beginning of Season Five of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. took viewers to unfamiliar territory. Our agents escaped the Framework, battled Life Model Decoys, and crossed paths with Ghost Rider, only to find themselves, with the exception of Fitz, transported onboard a station—in space!

As they come into contact with the vessel’s inhabitants, it becomes abundantly clear that something has gone terribly awry. Not only do they have to fend off vrellnexians “roaches,” but they come to learn humanity is at the mercy of Kree soldiers and their military governor, Kasius.

This isn’t the first time we’ve seen the Kree in “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D..” In Season 1, we learned Phil Coulson was resurrected after facing Loki at Battle of New York in Marvel Studios “The Avengers” after being treated with Project T.A.H.I.T.I. serum, GH.325, derived from a blue alien corpse, with abilities to promote advanced cellular regeneration. Eagle-eyed viewers will recall the flashback to Agent Peggy Carter retrieving that very blue alien corpse. In Ep. 14 “T.A.H.I.T.I.,” that very serum saves Skye’s life, without any consequence or side effects that Coulson endured, signaling she’s not quite a normal. In the following episode, Ep. 15 “Yes Men,” Lady Sif mentions the Kree as one of blue-colored species she has met on her travels.

Throughout “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.,” the Kree have been present—the Diviner, Hive summoning of Kree Reapers, the Monolith, and now culminating on the Lighthouse under the heel of the Kree ideology of a life earned, a life spent.

The Kree, a scientifically and technologically-advanced race of blue-skinned humanoids from the planet Hala, play a big part in Marvel history, not only in the comics, but in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The Kree first appeared in FANTASTIC FOUR #65 by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby. Over on the big screen, who can forget Ronan the Accuser in Marvel Studios’ “Guardians of the Galaxy” and his mission to end the Xandarians and their Nova Corps?

In Season 2, Ep. 12 “Who You Really Are,” Vin-Tak, a Kree sent to Earth to track down who activated the Diviner, revealed to Lady Sif and our Agents the true origin of the Inhumans—genetic experiments performed by Kree Reapers in hopes of creating bio-weapons. The Kree left Earth thinking these “genetic abominations” would die off on their own.

The Kree’s large mistrust and disgust of the Inhumans stemmed from Hive, an Inhuman who was supposed to lead the race for the Kree but who ultimately gained too much power and rebelled against them instead. You can thank the Kree for the Monolith and the earliest iteration of HYDRA, but that look back is for another time.

Catch more Kree action in new episodes of “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” Fridays at 9:00 PM ET on ABC. Not only that, keep an eye out for the Kree’s prominent role in the upcoming Marvel Studios’ “Captain Marvel.”

Key voice cast includes Dove Cameron, Chloe Bennet, Tyler Posey, Kim Raver and BooBoo Stewart.

Marvel Entertainment announced today, “Marvel Rising,” a brand-new, multi-platform animation franchise starring the next generation of Marvel heroes set to launch in 2018. The program will launch with six, four-minute digital shorts that spotlight Spider-Gwen with her new secret moniker, Ghost-Spider, and introduce audiences to the world of “Marvel Rising.” Following the shorts, a feature-length animated film, “Marvel Rising: Secret Warriors” will premiere later that year. Distribution partners for the content to be announced at a later date.

Meet the characters and all-star voice actors behind the all-new franchise “Marvel Rising” above.

The content features an all-star line-up of voice talent including Dove Cameron, Chloe Bennet, Tyler Posey, BooBoo Stewart, Kathreen Khavari, Milana Vayntrub, Cierra Ramirez, Kamil McFadden, Skai Jackson, Kim Raver, Ming-Na Wen, Steven Weber, and Dee Bradley Baker among others. Future stories and content are also being developed across Marvel’s digital and publishing platforms and will be announced at a later date.

“Marvel Rising: Secret Warriors” is a long-anticipated event, bringing together Marvel’s newest and beloved characters that have garnered major fan excitement over the last few years. Powered teens Ms. Marvel, Squirrel Girl, Quake, Patriot, America Chavez, and Inferno join forces as an unlikely, but formidable crew of aspiring heroes. When a threat no one could have expected bears down on the Marvel Universe, this ragtag, untrained band of teens have no choice but to rise together and prove to the world that sometimes the difference between a “hero” and “misfit” is just in the name.

“Marvel characters are so relatable because they live in our world and face the same challenges we do. So I’m very excited that our Marvel Rising team of heroes is so inclusive, reflecting characters with different backgrounds, particularly a set of strong female leads that our young audience can connect with,” said Cort Lane, Marvel’s Senior Vice President of Animation & Family Entertainment.

Sana Amanat, Marvel’s Director of Content & Character Development, added, “This project is unlike anything we’ve done before—from featuring the rising and fan-favorite stars of the Marvel Universe, to a visually distinct animation style, this is a groundbreaking animated event. It’s an action-packed adventure, full of comedy, heart and powerful messages for every kind of Marvel fan.”

Meet the characters behind “Marvel Rising”:

Gwen Stacy aka Ghost-Spider (formerly Spider Gwen) voiced by Dove Cameron (“Descendants,” “Hairspray Live”) – a free spirited teen who found her calling to be a super hero after being bitten by a radioactive spider and gaining spider-like powers. As Ghost-Spider, she aids those in need, but has to keep her alter-ego a secret from her father, Captain George Stacy, who sees Ghost-Spider as more of a menace than a hero.

Daisy Johnson aka Quake voiced by Chloe Bennet (“Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.,” “Nashville”) – a leading agent of S.H.I.E.L.D. whose tendency for rule-breaking gets her into trouble now and then. Daisy befriends the young group of heroes and through them discovers how to become a better leader. She can generate powerful vibrational waves, which produce effects similar to earthquakes. 

Dante Pertuz aka Inferno voiced by Tyler Posey (“Teen Wolf,” “Lincoln Heights”) – a brooding, dark loner on the run. Dante has the power of pyrokinesis, which makes him capable of generating flames – however, he is not fully in control of his fiery abilities. It’s a thin line between good guy and villain for the unpredictable Inferno.

Victor Kohl aka Exile voiced by BooBoo Stewart (“Descendants,” “The Twilight Saga”) – a charming, handsome, and troublesome young Inhuman whose quest for superiority places him into the wrong crowd. He can use Darkforce energy to create weapons and portals that allow him to teleport.

Kamala Khan aka Ms. Marvel voiced by Kathreen Khavari (“Marvel’s Avengers Assemble,” “Big Little Lies”)  – a devoted fan of Super Heroes, especially of her mentor Captain Marvel; she is determined that she too can be a great hero! If only she’d be taken seriously. Kamala is equipped with metamorphic powers that allow her to stretch, enlarge, or shrink her overall size, parts of her body, or alter her physical appearance. She is especially fond of “embiggening” her fists.

Doreen Green aka Squirrel Girl voiced by Milana Vayntrub (“Marvel’s New Warriors,” “This Is Us”) – the uber-positive, hilarious best friend and teammate of Ms. Marvel. With advanced computer skills, enhanced strength, agility, durability, and senses of a squirrel, Doreen (along with her squirrel partner, Tippy Toe!),  is primed and ready to become a successful hero.

America Chavez voiced by Cierra Ramirez (“The Fosters,” “The Secret Life of an America Teenager”) – a strong, independent young hero whose painful past drives her to reject leadership and remain a loner. America’s powers include superhuman strength, speed, and durability, plus the ability to fly.

Rayshaun Lucas aka Patriot voiced by Kamil McFadden (“K.C. Undercover,” “Grown Ups 2”) – a natural born leader who is quick to leap into action to impress his colleagues at S.H.I.E.L.D. Rayshaun strives to live up to Captain America’s legacy with integrity, honesty, and order above all. His skills include heightened strength, speed, stamina, and durability.

Gloria “Glory” Grant voiced by Skai JacksFron (“Bunk’d,” “Jessie”) – Gloria, or ‘Glory,’ is Gwen Stacy’s friend and member of their garage band “The Emm-Jays.” Gloria is a smart, hard-working girl that genuinely cares for Gwen, but has felt a distance growing between them ever since their friend, Kevin, was murdered. When being casual, Gloria’s known to be funny, sarcastic and sassy.

Carol Danvers aka Captain Marvel voiced by Kim Raver (“Grey’s Anatomy,” “24”) – a bold leader who doesn’t sugar-coat and is guided by a strong sense of duty and honor. She’s the ultimate inspiration for our band of misfit heroes. She is equipped with superhuman strength, can fly at high speeds, and can project intense energy blasts.

Hala voiced by Ming-Na Wen (“Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.,” “Mulan”) – Hala is a Kree Accuser bent on galactic domination. She’ll go to any length or treacherous means to achieve what she, and the entire Kree race, wants: Power. Hala is cold, cryptic and nefarious, often challenging those who try to oppose her.

Captain George Stacy voiced by Steven Weber (“13 Reasons Why,” “NCIS: New Orleans”) – Chief of the NYPD and Gwen Stacy’s loving, but fiercely protective father. Captain Stacy is a very disciplined, hard-working man that will stop at nothing to obtain justice – who unfortunately sees Ghost-Spider as a menace and a threat to society. 

Lockjaw and Tippy Toe are voiced by Dee Bradley Baker (“Star Wars Rebels,” “Gravity Falls”). Two lovable and heroic sidekicks: Lockjaw is Kamala’s trusty, teleporting mutt and Tippy Toe is Doreen’s partner in crime and best squirrel friend.

“Marvel Rising: Secret Warriors” is executive produced by Joe Quesada, Dan Buckley, Cort Lane, and Eric Radomski; co-executive produced by Stan Lee, Sana Amanat, and Marsha Griffin. The film and shorts were written by Mairghread Scott. Alfred Gimeno served as supervising director.
