Wait Super-Skrull is good now ? When did that happen ?

@kid_omega_prime: well idk if he's good per se, he was helping the young avengers keep the kree from taking hulking which meant he was helping the regular avengers. he even becomes a spy for the avengers/skrull empire by shifting into hulking and going back to the home world for them

Skrullian Skymaster?

Isn't Hulking a Skrull?

Edit. Just looked it up. 1/2 Kree & 1/2 Skrull so I'm assuming you are looking for a pure Skrull.

@knighthood: Oh yeah, of course. Half Skrull half Kree. That must count for something.

I think during Secret Wars you could see that many of the Skrulls, like "Captain Marvel" weren't necessarily evil.

Sounds RACIST to me- or it would if we were discussing a real life ethnic or religious group( do you know that you are paraphrasing General Philip Sheridan- "the only good Injuns I saw were dead ones!"). Even in Star Trek, we see that members of notoriously villainous groups such as Jem'Hadar, Borg , Cardassians or Romulans are not all necessarily "bad guys"- pace vampires in "True Blood" or "Twilight"-I really must object to this crass generalization!

Nice try, Skrull.

I think Lyja is, objectively, a good Skrull.

Only a Skrull would pick someone out as a Skrull, Skrull! *getting my gun*

Your erratic anti-Skrull behavior tells me you're trying to hide your own Skrullness!

I STILL think this whole "the only good Skrull is a dead Skrull!" line of argument is not only racist but ultimately genocidal!

Xavin, Lykja, K'lrt did some good things. Hundreds of Skull civilians I'm certain are good. Ultimately really skrull disputes wit earth are rarel good vs. Evil but rather often political and/or survival based. Especially seeing how galtacus ate their honeworld. There is also the fact skrull and human cultures would have sifferent moral views so what is good and evil is questionable. For instance Xavin once pointed out how skrulls mourn for every soul that dies in a tragedy but humans tend to get way more emtional or personal with a singular death. That isn't a good vs. Evil point but rather a showing of different value systems.

This.

Not only do Skrulls have different cultural customs than humans,but there are plenty of good ones,just as there are good humans. Or I guess that in the comic world that they would be identified as neutrals.

Many conflicts with humans and skrulls are simply for political reasons (most of the time),or for survival (or both)

Depends how you want to define the phrase "good" or "evil"- most average Skrulls(just like say Soviet citizens during the Cold War )just wanted to go about their daily business, caring for their families and loved ones( YES: Skrulls do have loved ones; they are sentient lifeforms) and did not see the "big picture". Also given the autocratic nature of Skrull society(not unlike a twentieth century totalitarian dictatorship) they are virtually helpless to influence their government.
