Doctor Minerva first came to Earth seeking the exiled Kree Captain Mar-Vell. She hoped to mate with him and use his altered genes to help progress the Kree genetic code.[1]

Later, she worked with Captain Atlas in an effort to steal Quasar's Quantum Bands, known as the so-called "Power Bands of Rinn" to the Kree.[2] They also operated during the Kree/Shi'ar conflict called Galactic Storm, when they retrieved Captain Mar-Vell's Nega-Bands.[3] As part of the Kree Starforce, Minerva was aware of the Supreme Intelligence's plan to decimate the Kree empire with the Nega-Bomb in hopes of jumpstarting an evolutionary development in the remaining 10%. Atlas was distraught and seemingly suicidal over the news, setting off his suit's self-destruct mechanism. Minerva and Atlas were apparently consumed by the blast.[4]

In fact, Atlas had been bluffing. The two of them covertly teleported away under the cover of his blast. They later used a similar ruse to manipulate the Silver Surfer into leaving them alone.[5]

Minerva was later seen in New York City creating a diversion so her men could get away from St. Luke's Roosevelt Hospital with one of the Nuhuman cocoons that was being kept there. While clearing a path, she was intercepted by Spider-Man and the new Ms. Marvel.[6]
