The Skrulls are an alien race over 100 million years old. The early decedents of the Skrull race were subject to genetic experiments by the Celestials - much like the experiments that gave rise to the Eternals and Deviants upon Earth. Unlike on Earth the minority of early Skrulls that were genetically manipulated became the dominant species on the planet Skullos. Of those that dominated, were two races of Deviant Skrulls possessing the ability to mentally change their form. The normal Skrulls and the virtually immortal Skrull Eternals were eradicated by the Deviant races. Of the two Deviant Skrull races one which would become the most common race today and the other would be exiled to the Burning Galaxy becoming a race known as the Dire Wraiths.
