Originally sent to Earth as a spy for the alien Kree Empire, Mar-Vell discovered that the Kree's Supreme Intelligence conspired to enslave the human race and claim the planet for their own.

He has a great head-sculpt too, strong dimpled chin. You could use this head for a custom Booster Gold or Hal Jordan!

The body is a basic sculpt, like Moon Knight's body, so it's great as a base figure for your customs. The only parts that aren't "standard" are the golden sculpted "Nega-Bands" on the wrists and maybe the feet are slightly...[See More]
