- "The infiltration has begun!"
- ―Captain America (Skrull)[src]
Captain America (Skrull) is the first of two Skrull imposters of Captain America. After the end of Loki's war, Captain America was taken out by a Skrull and replaced. Later, the Skrull took Captain America's position in the Avengers, after the Skrull invasion war was over he got kicked off the team.
He was sent to Earth to spy on the Avengers and other Earth elements and he was able to without suspicion from the Avengers. However, other people (such as Baron Zemo and possibly Doctor Doom) who know him may know because of some minor slips. For example when he told Zemo "you have no idea who I am!" his shadow was a Skrull shadow (possibly put there for dramatic effect) meaning it may have hinted he is an imposter.
Later, he fought the Kree and because of his extreme hatred for them acted differently. However neither the Kree or the Humans noticed of such behavior (likely because they were in battle). At the end of the episode he was seen at a warehouse and used a communicator (the communicator was hid there so it wouldn't give away his identity). He then said "we have to move up our timetable (morphs half way), the Kree are coming". Later, he left the Avengers Mansion, telling Iron Man that he will search for his old World War II buddies (even though most if not all would probably be deceased) but that was a lie. It is possible he contacted the Skrull or spoke with other undercover Skrulls such as the Invisible Woman (Skrull). It is unknown if he or any other Skrulls knew that Madame Hydra (Skrull) was captured.
- "As it is written. My queen."
- ―Captain America (Skrull)[src]
The Skrull disguised as Steve Rogers celebrated the welcome party of Carol in the Avengers as Ms. Marvel. When Carol wondered who was protecting the mansion, Steve replied that Hulk is on monitor duty, while Black Panther is watching him. After Ms. Marvel explained her occupation in the military, Griffin came swifting outside the pizza place, he alongside Wasp, Hawkeye and Ms. Marvel went after the beast.
He used his motorcycle to go after him. He threw his shield at him, making him fly towards the sky to let it be attacked by Hawkeye, Wasp and Ms. Marvel. After Gryffon landed in a park fighting against Ms. Marvel, who was trying to fend the beast alone. He arrived at the scene, telling Wasp and Hawkeye that in his time that it was worse. He arrived in the mansion along with the others, where they were approached by Iron Man. He suspected that there was a skrull among them and accused of Hawkeye of being one. After Hawkeye was backed up Hulk they fought against Ms. Marvel and Iron Man, Captain America saved Iron Man and Hawkeye from each other and made them stop the fight. After Iron Man, Ms. Marvel and Black Panther left the team, Captain America convinced Hawkeye and Hulk staying alongside the Wasp and they became as the remaining Avengers, with himself becoming the leader.
Later that night, Captain America entered a warehouse. He changed back to his Skrull form and approached the Veranke (who was pretending to be Mockingbird), telling the plan went as well as it was written.
- "You! You lied to the Avengers. To the whole world, all using my face!"
"I didn't do anything. You did."
- ―Captain America and the imposter being sarcastic[src]
During the final assault of the Skrulls, he sent the Avengers to Washington, D.C., telling that another Skrull ship landed in the White House. But before arriving, the Quinjet gets attacked and makes and crash landing in the Reflecting Pool. When they get out, 12 Super-Skrulls ambush them.
Eventually, the Avengers fell, but not without realizing that Cap was the Skrull. In a fit of anger, Hawkeye sprints to the imposter to try to kill him, but only gets electrocuted by Thor-like Super-Skrull. One of the Super-Skrulls takes a cameraman and the imposter Cap orders him to film what he´s about to say, the Skrull used his appearance and respect as Cap to influence the inhabitants of the Earth to surrender, tells the world that the Skrulls are the good guys that want to help them.
When the real Steve Rogers arrived to Washington, D.C. along other impersonated humans who escaped from the Skrull ship, he fiercely fought Rogers and lost in hand to hand combat and also destroying the energy shield. When the Skrulls were finally defeated, he, along with Veranke and the Super-Skrulls, incarcerated in the Prison 42.
This Captain America Skrull is a male with green skin, with eyes with irises an unnatural green color His body build remains the same but his clothing changes and his ears are pointy.
In disguised form, the Skrull looks like Captain America. He began wearing a modified version of Steve's costume with star symbols on his shoulders, a grey outline on the sides of his body and his mask doesn't have eagle wings on the side. He also uses a photonic shield, which Tony Stark created to replace Cap's broken shield, the gauntlet is made of unique iron alloy. The new shield is mounted on a wrist brace.
He appears to be less of an "American soldier" than the real Captain America, at least in terms of decorum. As a Skrull warrior, he is not as 'by the books' as the original, saying things such as "Avengers attack!" when the Kree are presented. He violently attacks them showing the Skrull hatred for the Kree. Also when Baron Zemo counted on Captain America's code of honor to save him from the Enchantress, but was betrayed. It appears that his personality is very similar to that of Ultimate Captain America. He is also sarcastic to his earth counterpart.
Powers and Abilities
It seems that he has the same abilities of the real Captain America. He can shapeshift into any person he desires to choose. He is also shown to be adept in hand-to-hand combat. He was able to dodge the laser attacks of the Doombots in the season 2 premiere. He took down 3 Kree guards with his energy shield without being hit once. He jumped on Crimson Dynamo's armored hand while shielding himself from Dynamo's laser bullets.
