With unbreakable adamantium bones and retractable claws, Wolverine is a tough warrior and an impressive sight to behold. But the Skrulls have a different outlook than humans, and when they spot Wolverine, they think him to be nothing more than an average mutant.

Wolverine won't rest until the Skrulls are defeated and wiped from the Earth.
Attacking mutants and Super Heroes as the super-solider of his invading forces, the Super-Skrull is a force to be reckoned with. Able to use all of the powers of the Fantastic Four at the same time, the Super-Skrull would seem to be unbeatable.

Moving through the streets with little danger of being defeated, the Super-Skrull battles on, awaiting the heroes' challenge!

Safe inside the alien compound, Gambit sends a message to his allies in the X-Men Strike Team -- time to strike!
Controlling the elements of weather makes Ororo Munroe one of the most powerful mutants on the planet, and so it is no surprise that she is among the first mutants to be targeted by the alien Skrulls.
