Ronan was created by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby in 1967. He first appeared in Fantastic Four vol 1 #65.
The character returned sporadically in Captain Marvel vol 1, and played an important role in the Kree-Skrull War storyline in Avengers vol 1 #88-97. After appearances in Ms. Marvel vol 1 and Silver Surfer vol 3, Ronan returned in the Galactic Storm crossover in 1992.
Ronan subsequently appeared in Fantastic Four vol 3 #13-14 and Iron Man vol 3 #14, before having a major role in the Maximum Security crossover in Jan 2001.
During the 2006 Annihilation storyline, Ronan received a four-issue eponymous miniseries written by Simon Furman, and a leading role in Annihilation #1-6. He appeared in the sequels, Annihilation Conquest #1-6 and Annihilation Conquest: Wraith #1-4 in 2007.
After being seen during the Secret Invasion: War of Kings one-shot, the character was used in War of Kings #1-6 (2009) and Realm of Kings: Inhumans #1-4. Following appearances in The Thanos Imperative #1-6 (2010), Ronan joined the titular team in Annihilators #1-4 (2011) and Annihilators: Earthfall #1-4 (Sept 2011-Dec 2011).
Upon the completion of his formal education, Ronan was enrolled in the Kree Public Accuser Corps, the main law enforcement body for the empire. Ronan did well and was steadily promoted. In a border incident, he stopped a fleet of Skrull ships from entering Kree space. As a result, he was made Supreme Accuser of the Kree Empire, making him responsible for enforcing the laws and decrees of the Kree, and second only to the Supreme Intelligence, and the Imperial Minister. As a proud member of the Kree aristocracy (blue-skinned Kree), he was not happy taking orders from the Supreme Intelligence. His attempt to cause a civil war was quickly halted, and he quickly returned to service.
Ronan's first encounter with Earth heroes was when the Fantastic Four defeated Kree Sentry #459.
Ronan battled Captain Mar-Vell on several occasions.
He secretly planned with Zarek to overthrow the Kree leader, the Supreme Intelligence, believing the Empire should not be ruled by a non-humanoid entity but he was stopped by Captain Marvel and the Supreme Intelligence itself, which incarcerated him.
Ronan escaped from his confinement and led a temporary coup against the Supreme Intelligence when active hostilities broke out with the Skrulls. He imprisoned the Earth youth Rick Jones until the Intelligence unleashed the Destiny Force within Jones, ending the war.
However the Accuser continued to serve the Kree Empire being mentally dominated by the Supreme Intelligence for a period of time, and battles Mar-Vell on multiple occasions. He later regained his sanity and returned to his former position as Supreme Accuser.
During Operation: Galactic Storm, Ronan and the Accusers defended the Kree Empire from Shi'ar intervention. When the Supreme Intelligence regained power, he recruited Ronan for the Kree Starforce on an assassination mission against Empress Lilandra.
Later, Ronan attempted to press the Inhumans into service, as they had been created by the Kree. Although Black Bolt defeated Ronan in a contest, many Inhumans chose to stay in space regardless.
Ronan also unsuccessfully tried to regain the Kree 'Psyche-Magnetron' from the Watcher.
During the Ruul's attempt to turn Earth into an intergalactic prison, Ronan was empowered with the vast energies of Ego. This energy was contained by Quasar, and Ronan was defeated.
Ronan was framed and stripped of his Accuser Rank by House Fiyero. He sought out the only witness, Tana Nile, who was part of Gamora's Graces. Unfortunately, Tana Nile was killed by the Annihilation Wave commanded by Annihilus. The ruling Kree seemed ignorant of the threat the Wave posed.
Ronan later joined with the United Front along with Nova on the front lines against the Annihilation Wave. Many rank and file Kree trusted him over the commanders appointed by Fiyero, in the war against Annihilus.
Ronan eventually returned to Hala with his sworn enemy Kl'rt the Super-Skrull and Praxagora to dethrone the House Fiyero who were planning to side with Ravenous and Annihilus. After knocking Ravenous unconscious and killing the House Fiyero, Ronan attempted to locate the Supreme Intelligence, only to find that Fiyero had lobotomized it. Mercifully killing it, Ronan exited its chamber to thunderous cheers of the Kree people, who unanimously called on him to become their new emperor.
When Ravenous later came back to Hala with a stronger force, Ronan led a violent attack on Ravenous' fleet; in which entire building complexes were rocket propelled at Ravenous' forces and decimated the Annihilation forces. After the massive destruction of the Annihilation Wave by Galactus, Ronan was part of the participants in forging a treaty between the United Front and Ravenous that ceded certain Kree territories and all of the former Skrull Empire in order to end the hostilities.
When the Phalanx invaded and assimilated the Kree, Ronan was forced to serve them to protect the Empire. He was freed by the Wraith, whose Exolon symbiotes can drive fear into the Phalanx. Along with Kl'rt, Praxagora and Ra-Venn, Ronan made his way to Kree-Lar, the ceded Kree capital, now under the control of the N-Zone bugs, who were putting up quite a fight with the Phalanx. Ronan called to make an alliance, when he was actually looking to activate the 15,000 Kree Sentries beneath the palace. Originally meant for an eventual strike to take back their territories from the bugs, Ronan was going to use them to annihilate Hala, as a means to free his people from servitude. To that end, he had Praxagora and Wraith render the Sentries immune to the Transmode Virus.
As the Sentries approached Hala, Ra-Venn informed Ronan that Nova, Quasar and Star-Lord have gone head-to-head with the Phalanx and asked that he call off the strike. However, Ronan refused to. Unfortunately, Ultron, who had taken over Praxagora, took control of the sentries to form a new body. Kl'rt barely managed to shield them all before Praxagora self-destructed. Descending to the surface, they helped Quasar defeat Ultron, by having Wraith use his Exolons to trap Ultron. With the Phalanx defeated, Ronan was left to pick up the pieces of the Kree Empire.
Secret Invasion and War of Kings
When the Inhumans left Earth's Moon in searching and rescuing Black Bolt from the Skrulls following their invasion of Earth, Medusa tried to establish an alliance between the Inhumans and the Kree to help find Black Bolt and free him from his Skrull captors. Ronan agreed, but only on the condition that Medusa's sister Crystal became his bride. He provided them with information regarding the Skrull communications network, which the Kree have been trying for years to crack.
Shortly after the Skrull invasion, the Inhumans arrived at the Kree homeland, and after subduing his bodyguards, confronted the Kree ruler, Ronan. Defeated, Ronan knelt before Black Bolt as the new ruler of the Kree Empire. To bring their two races closer together, Ronan and Crystal's marriage proceeded. However, Crystal saw the marriage as a political affair, to Ronan's disappointment. On the wedding day, he was severely beaten by the Shi'arImperial Guard and was hospitalized.
The War of the Four Cities
The Inhumans went back to Earth, Ronan resuscitates the Supreme Intelligence of the Kree using the minds of two alternate Reed Richards and the seed of the Supreme Intelligence, log hidden in the heft of Ronan's weapon.
During the war with the Cancerverse, Ronan was a member of Nova's main attack force. In an effort to prevent further massive conflicts, Ronan joined the Annihilators. They protected Galador from the Dire Wraiths and oppose the Universal Church of Truth's attempt to revive the Magus.
Ronan was separated from his wife Crystal under the orders of Black Bolt. This separation was part of a truce that was made between Black Bolt and the Supreme Intelligence to ensure peace between Inhumans and the Kree Empire. Crystal and Ronan were deeply saddened by this decision, as their arranged marriage had eventually become a stronger relationship.
After the resurgence of the Black Vortex, Ronan and the Accuser Corps retrieved it from Gamora, Beast and Angel, who had submitted to its power and planned to reshape the universe their image with it.
In retaliation, the three cosmically-enhanced beings assaulted Hala. The Accuser Corps tried to fight off their attackers, but were notably overpowered. After being denied by the Supreme Intelligence to use the power of the Black Vortex to fight back, Ronan the Accuser disobeyed him, and submitted to its power, ensuring a successful defense for the Kree homeworld, and forcing Gamora, Beast, and Angel to flee after the latter was knocked down.
Hala was subsequently destroyed by Mister Knife, another player in the conflict who was looking for the Black Vortex. Ronan later set out to rebuild the fallen Kree empire and have revenge for the destruction of its homeworld.
As a Kree warrior in peak physical condition, Ronan possesses his species' unique physiology, having far greater natural attributes than a human. Thus, Ronan's body is resistant to poisons, toxins and diseases. He has superhuman strength, speed, endurance and reflexes, which are all further enhanced by his exoskeleton body-armor. Ronan's armor, which contains multiple scanners, can also create fields of invisibility, and his gauntlets can discharge cosmic energy bolts or generate sufficient coldness to place certain lifeforms into a state of suspended animation. In addition, Ronan possesses a brilliant strategic mind; his high intellect allowed him to rise to one of the highest positions in the Kree Empire. He also has extensive knowledge in all matters pertaining to Kree law, and is well-versed in the use of his species' highly advanced technology.
Ronan's primary weapon is an Accuser Cosmi-Rod called the "Universal Weapon". At its wielder's will, the device can absorb and fire cosmic energy, manipulate matter, generate force-fields, control gravity, and create "time-motion displacement fields". It also allows for interstellar teleportation, hyperspatial passages and flight. As a highly trained Kree soldier, Ronan is extremely proficient in the use of this weapon in both close and far ranged confrontations. Even without his war hammer, Ronan has proven a formidable hand-to-hand combatant.
Ronan has a few allies including Thanos and Nebula. He mostly works alone.
Ronan has a number of enemies including Star-Lord, Drax The Destroyer, Gamora, Rocket Raccoon, Groot, Mantis, Nova, Adam Warlock, Doctor Strange and many more.
