Fictional character biography

Att-Lass, a native of the planet Kree-Lar, throne-world of the Kree empire, graduates from the Kree Military Academy to become a Captain in the Kree space fleet. He is given command of the Kree light cruiser "Ramatam". He also becomes a warrior and special operative for the Supreme Intelligence.

Taking the alias Mr. Atlas, he accompanies Doctor Minerva to an AIM Weapons Exposition. He helps Minerva capture Quasar to obtain his quantum bands. He is rescued from outer space by Quasar, but the hero forces him to leave Earth. ["Quasar" #9-10]

Atlas and Minerva then explore Captain Marvel's tomb on one of Saturn's moons, looking for his nega-bands. Atlas is captured by Quasar agaom, and attacked by Shi'ar Imperial Guard members, representatives of a galaxy spanning avian race. Atlas still manages to obtain Mar-Vell's nega-bands. ["Quasar" #32] Atlas then battles Wonder Man on Earth, and is captured by him. ["Wonder Man" #7] However, he is freed by Shape-Shifter (posing as Doctor Minerva), then captured by the rest of the Imperial Guard. The Shi'ar then strip him of the nega-bands. ["Avengers West Coast" #81] Oracle, a telepath, drains Atlas of strategic information. Atlas is then freed from Shi'ar captivity by Shatterax. ["Quasar" #33]

Atlas then joins the Kree Starforce. Alongside the Starforce, he fighst against the Avengers on Kree-Lar. He survives the genocidal 'Nega-Bomb', which nearly wipes out Kree society. He then apparently commits suicide through the activation of his battle-suit's self-destruct program. ["Avengers" #346-347]

At-Lass actually survives, and goes into hiding with Minn-Erva.

Powers and abilities

Att-Lass was a member of the alien Kree race, and was also mutagenically altered by the Kree Psyche-Magnetron, giving him superhuman strength and durability and the power of flight. He could not breathe in Earth's atmosphere without a special apparatus or breathing serum.

Att-Lass was one of the Kree Empire's most decorated soldiers, and highly accomplished in all forms of armed and unarmed combat utilized in the Kree Empire. He was an excellent hand-to-hand combatant. He also had the ability to pilot various Kree starships.

The craftsmen and technicians of the Kree Empire constructed a number of accessories for his use as an officer of the Kree military. His helmet contains a supply of air with the same nitrogen-oxygen balance as Kree-Lar's atmosphere. The Kree uni-beam he wears on his wrist projects concussive energy beams and laser like-light beams generating intense heat. He also employs a special breathing potion to breathe in Earth's atmosphere without his helmet; the serum also temporarily alters his skin color to a Caucasian tone. He also captained the "Ramatam," and had access to the advanced technology and armament aboard the starship.

He briefly wore Captain Marvel's nega-bands, which enabled him to convert psionic energy for a variety of uses, including enhancing his already superhuman strength and durability.
