Anelle is a fictional character in Marvel Comics. She was a Skrull princess, the only child of Emperor Dorrek VII and Empress R´Klll, and the heir to the Skrull Empire.

Publication history[edit]

Anelle first appeared in Fantastic Four #37 and was created by writer Stan Lee and artist Jack Kirby.

Fictional character biography[edit]

From the beginning, she was depicted as being frequently opposed to her father Dorrek VII's policies, and preferring peace to the aggressive military policies that her father enacts.

She fell in love with Warlord Morrat, but he was executed for treason by firing a squad after a failed coup d'état against Emperor Dorrek VII. She leaps in front of the weapons fire in order try and save Morrat but the Invisible Woman, a member of the Fantastic Four, surrounds Anelle with a force field, saving her life.[1]

The Super-Skrull, Kl'rt, fell in love with her and was a suitor for her hand, but she saw nothing in him and rejected him.[2] He later captured Captain Marvel, the Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver in an attempt to win her hand but her father interpreted it as an attempt to usurp him and instead imprisoned Kl'rt.[3]

Later, during the Kree-Skrull War, when the Kree Captain Marvel is imprisoned,[4] the two fell in love and have an illicit relationship.[5] Hulkling, who would later become part of the superhero team Young Avengers, was the product of that relationship. Anelle's father condemned the child to death as soon as he learned that Mar-Vell was the father but Anelle sent her nurse to smuggle the child off-world and reunite him with his father. Instead, he ended up hidden away on the planet Earth.[6]

Anelle's mother R'Klll murders her husband to become ruling Empress of the Skrull Empire.[7] Galactus later sets his sights on the Skrull Throneworld. Anelle perishes, along with her mother and billions of other Skrulls, when the world is devoured.[8]
