Marvel Studios newest film is about to make its way into theaters with a cast of unusual characters. Guardians of the Galaxy may prove to be a sleeper hit for the studio. One of the villains that is in the movie trailers is Ronan the Accuser. Ronan first appeared on the pages of the Fantastic Four back in the late 60’s and has been an important figure in the Marvel comics for decades.
Ronan the Accuser has been rumored to be one of the generals in the army of Thanos. Ronan the Accuser is a member of the Kree. The Kree made a brief appearance on marvel’s Agents of SHIELD with one in a tank being used for research. The Kree are a war like race with advanced weapons, starships and a massive fleet of ships.
Powers and Abilities
Ronan has the ability to adapt his physical form to survive in any type of environment. This ability allows him to move freely in any planetary conditions and even survive for limited amounts of time in the vacuum of space.
Ronan carries a Kree power staff that was bestowed upon him when he was appointed to the position of Supreme Accuser. The staff that has the ability to fire bursts of cosmic energy, beams that disintegrate matter and the ability to teleport. The weapon is his first choice in battle and has devastating results. The staff also has the ability to absorb various types of energy blasts and return them at the shooter. Ronan can also manipulate time and cause time to slow for those targeted which allows Ronan to mive against the target with seeming superhuman speed.
Ronan wears a suit of advanced Kree battle armor that provides protection against physical attacks. The armor also provides limited protection from various types of energy attacks. It can be assumed that the armor would protect him from a direct blast from particle beam pistols, such as the one Star-Lord carries. The armor also gives a strength enhancement to Ronan that boosts his already higher than average Kree strength. Ronan possesses superhuman strength equal to the level of Thor while wearing the armor.
There seems to be some speculation that the Kree will be invading areas of the galaxy. The threat is so significant and the Nova Squad, an intergalactic police and protection force, calls it an unstoppable threat. The fleet appears to be massive and has the goal of conquering a portion of the galaxy.
