Quote: I recently got the trade paperback of the first volume (They released a second one, I think. The volume that I got was the only one at the time.). It was on sale, and I know that this is something of a classic story, so I want to read it. I recently got Wonder Man #9 on sale ($.50. Good deal.), and it was a pivotal issue, because it showed the Nega Bomb exploding. In the next issue (Which is the conclusion.), it is revealed that the Supreme Intelligence set it off (I'm not sure how. Um, how?) and that this caused most of the Kree to die. This was pretty much mass murder, and it seemed to be very ruthless. Is this in line with the Supreme Intelligence? I know that he's a villain, but is this in character for him? I don't know much about the character, other than the obvious. He was a good villain in this story (And I prefer my villains to be ruthless.), but I'm just wondering if this suits him.
SI's intent was to wipe out all the dead weight in the empire and for the survivors to be mutated by the bomb.
Basically the Kree are at an evolutionary dead end and don't really have mutants. I think his goal was for the next generation of Kree to have mutations. SI manipulated the Skrulls into stealing the bomb from the Shi'ar (who backed out on using it).
As for whether it was in character or not. I would say it was in character. He wants the betterment of Kree society in the long run but he doesn't exist to make the Kree happy. But there is a great reason to assume that it isn't in character. The Silver Surfer once destroyed the Supreme Intelligence. The only reason the Supreme Intelligence came back from that was because the elder of the universe named the Contemplator brought him back as a means to manipulate the Kree. Later in Quasar's series that Contemplator was retconned into being a Skrull. So you could say the Supreme Intelligence has been a puppet of the Skrulls since the 80's even if the stories don't acknowledge that.
He has to be if he would kill off his own race. How did he get hold of the bomb? Thanks.
