Biography

Yeah, but the wars are bigger than you know.
~ Mar-Vell to Carol.

She was a Kree scientist who defected from Kree Empire, having felt remorse for fighting in a "shameful" war, and was Carol Danvers' mentor in the United States Air Force on Earth. She worked on Project P.E.G.A.S.U.S. where she was trying to harness the power of the Tesseract to create the Light-Speed Engine, a machine that could end the war against the Skrulls.

Wanting to end the Kree-Skrull War, she decided to give the engine to the Skrulls so they could find a home. Despite her goods intentions, she and Danvers were attacked by Starforce on a test run. Mar-Vell proceeded to tell Carol the truth of her mission on Earth, and was killed by Yon-Rogg before she could destroy the engine's core. Yon-Rogg would take Danvers because of the engine's power infusing into her body. He infused his blood with hers, and had her memories of Earth and Mar-Vell erased, and made her join Starforce.

Legacy

Her failure to help the Skrulls caused them be further pushed by the Kree during the war, but would gain the help of Danvers in 1995. Mar-Vell's legacy would be remembered once Carol have her memories restored; and continue her mentor's goal: To help the Skrulls find a new home, and end the war against the Kree. Carol would continue to help the Kree, and briefly left to help the Avengers stop Thanos and undo the decimation.
