Quote:1. Apparently the Kree weren't engineered by the Celestials (unless next issue tells us different). The Kree are engineered by a race called the Progenitors. My problem with that is that of course the Kree were engineered the Celestials...they had Kree Eternals. (that said they never have gotten around to telling us about the Kree Deviants)
Although I'm not exactly happy about this retcon, in all fairness the idea that the Celestials had tampered with Kree evolution (as they did with humans) was never really developed. As best I can recall, there were only two links between the Kree and the Celestials. First, the Kree were inspired to experiment upon humanity after encountering (and vivisecting) an Eternal who they captured after the destruction of their supply depot on Uranus millennia ago. Second, the revelation (made during the Operation: Galactic Storm crossover) that the blue-skinned alien previously known as the Demon Druid was actually a Kree Eternal named Ultimus. That was a concept that I would have really liked to have seen developed further but nothing was ever done with it.
Quote:2. Apparently the Progenitors used a substance called Primagen (Prima Materia) to mutate the Kree. The Kree later used various imperfect variants of that (Terrigen, Amphogen, Antigen, Isogen, Exogen etc) to mutate other races like humans, Kymellians, Dire Wraiths, Centurians and Badoon etc
When I first read this issue, I noticed that only three of the five Universal Inhuman races were mentioned: humans, the Kymellians and the Badoon. I assumed that the Dire Wraiths were missing because IDW now has the license to publish comics featuring the Spaceknight Rom. However, both the "Incentaurians" and the "Direst Wraiths" showed up in issue #6. Also, Jonathan Hickman's FF Vol. 1 stories revealed that the Kree had experimented on FAR more alien races than those five. The Kree science teams had "seeded over one hundred worlds" and been successful on ALL of them. Later, after the Supremor foresaw that a future being who might be a product of his metagenesis program would one day cause his death, he had his Accusers burn "over one hundred worlds" where the experiments had taken place in an attempt to prevent to prevent his eventual death.
