Veranke is the queen of the Skrulls and the supervisor of the Skrull infiltration and replaced Mockingbird, working alongside with Nick Fury and the Secret Warriors


At some point of time, after Mockingbird and Hawkeye attacked HYDRA Island, Mockingbird was kidnapped and replaced by Veranke.[1]

As It is Written

She accompanied Nick Fury to Maria Hill's room in the Helicarrier and held her mouth closed while Fury talked to her about the Skrull threat. Black Widow brought Iron Man to Fury's secret safe-house and Mockingbird (Skrull) was present. She followed Fury into the room containing the deceased body of the Madame Hydra Skrull.

At an undisclosed location, the Skrull Captain America approached her and reported the disbanding of the Avengers, and subsequent reorganization under himself, and she stepped out of the shadows and congratulated him. He then kissed her hand before morphing half.[1]Then she morphed half and said: "As it is written."

She was informed Captain America led a prison break from the Skrull ship. She was pleased as Captain America had managed to unite mortal enemies to work together and would use his Skrull duplicate to subjugate Earth. After the Avengers were captured, Veranke showed up in Washington, D.C.. Hawkeye threatened to kill her if she hurt Mockingbird. When victory seemed assured Iron Man and Thor showed with Iron Man exposing her true form. She activated an A.I.M. device which used satellites to kill every human on Earth. She would have won, but Thor, being Asgardian, was not affected and flew into orbit knocking every satellite from orbit. Surrounded she was knocked out by Ms. Marvel. She, all the captured Skrulls and Super-Skrulls were locked up in a special section of 42 and were seemingly left there after the incident with Annihilus.


She is a cold and calculating. She has been waiting a long time to see the infiltration a success so her people may take Earth for their own as it is written in their prophecies and from the Kree.[1]

Powers and abilities

Like all Skrulls, she has the ability to shapeshift into anyone she desires to turn into and mimic the voices of the replaced persons. She is shown to be skilled with weapons since she was able to use Mockingbird's staff well. She also has shown to be very stealthy as she snuck up on Maria easily without being seen or heard.

Background in other media

Like in the comics, Veranke is the queen of the Skrull Empire. Unlike in the comic version where she replaced Spider-Woman, she poses as Mockingbird.

In the comics Veranke was a founding member of the New Avengers, while posing as Spider-Woman.
