Biography

Origin

Kree Accuser in Fantastic Four v1 #65.

Ronan

When he was young, he was noted for being ambitious and intending to climb up the social ladder. He came to know about Una-Rogg who was the daughter of Yon-Rogg with her coming from a respectable family. Thus, he saw her as a desirable catch and came to pursue as well as court her. This eventually culminated in the two sleeping together which was when she developed the rare genetic talent among female Kree to drain life energies from others. This resulted in an end to their relationship as she came to be considered a criminal under Kree law. (Captain Marvel v4 #24)

Annihilation

Whilst in the Kree/Skrull disputed territory, he was approached by armed Kree personnel who declared that he was under arrest by order of the imperial tribunal for the crime of sedition. Ronan willingly decided to surrender himself and return to Kree-Lar for trial. (Annihilation: Prologue v1 #1) A Rigellian named Tana Nile claimed to had witnessed Ronan making overtures with the Skrull baroness S'Bak in order to overthrow the ruling House Fiyero and take control of the empire. This saw him being stripped of his position and banished where he operated as a lone bearer of Kree law on periphery worlds of the empire. Ronan knew that the charges made against him were false and began to seek a means of exposing the truth and punish those responsible. (Annihilation: Ronan v1 #1) Whilst with Korath, he was attacked by the Graces who had sought to take over the planet with Ronan defeating them. (Annihilation: Ronan v1 #2) This resulted in a battle with their leader Gamora where the pair unleashed incredible amounts of energy whereby an unknown force was reshaping the planet's reality. It was revealed that the fight was part of the manipulations of Glorian who was used the energy to create a wonder world. (Annihilation: Ronan v1 #3) However, the planet then was attacked by forces of the Annihilation Wave who had begun to invade the universe whereby Ronan and others worked together to fight off the insectoid horde. He came upon Tana Nile who was mortally wounded but revealed that his disgrace was part of the machinations of Fiyero House to remove remnants of the old order so that they could rule the Kree empire. At first, Ronan sought to turn his back on his people but decided to return to Kree space to warn them despite the terms of the exile stating that him coming back was punishable by death but they were determined to warn the empire of the Annihilation Wave. (Annihilation: Ronan v1 #4) During the war, he found himself on Daedalus 5 where he joined the United Front that had been gathered by Nova Richard Rider in opposition to the Annihilation Wave. Ronan worked to aid the Kree forces on the planet where he moved in to lead them as House Fiyero who lacked any war-experience caused their military forces to suffer heavy casualties due to poor leadership. (Annihilation v1 #1) After defeating the Wave's forces, Ronan sought in a meeting with the Kree captains alongside Richard Rider and Star-Lord to discuss the performance of the Kree forces. The leaders were all members of House Fiyero who did not accept the presence of Ronan who was considered a traitor to the Kree empire. They attempted to force his arrest with Ronan reacting by killing them as he believed them to be a hindrance and poor warriors. He then offered to lead the Kree forces and requested a battalion of them in order to take the war to House of Fiyero in order to topple their rule of the empire. (Annihilation v1 #2) Alongside his allies, they came to Hala where they battled the military forces there in order to confront House Fiyero. By this point, House Fiyero had allied with the Annihilation Wave who dispatched Ravenous and the Centurions to aid them. Despite their presence, they were defeated by Ronan and his allies with the Annihilation Wave forces teleporting away. This saw the Kree Empire rally under Ronan's victory where the Accuser executed the traitorous House Fiyero members. Ronan then was escorted to the Supreme Intelligence where he was shocked to find the Supremor left in a state of living death after being lobotomised by Fiyero. As an act of mercy, Ronan killed the Supreme Intelligence and took leadership of the Kree empire. (Annihilation v1 #5)
