Early Years

Genis-Vell is the son of Captain Mar-Vell of the Kree race and an unnamed woman from Earth. After Mar-Vell's lover had died giving birth to their son, he took him and left Earth raising him on his own in the Kree planet Kree-Lar. At one point in his early teenage years, he somehow became separated to his father and was volunteered being genetically engineered from cockroach DNA and enhanced super serums by the Kree Military after joining the organization, in which later on he has been given the legal name of Noh-Varr, a name he ended up embracing as his new identity. In his youth, he joined the 18th Kree Diplomatic Gestalt. They were sent out as peacekeepers to negotiate the efficient but short-lived Kree and Skrull Ceasefire.

On their way back home, the group answered five distress calls. In the sudden events of facing a fleet of Astro-Gods, also known as the Aspirants, they were lost in alternate galaxies after alternate galaxies throughout the entire cosmos. When the 18th finally thought they found home, they arrived on Earth where they were shot down by the United States Navy. Noh-Varr was the only survivor of the group. However he was found by his own father Captain Mar-Vell, whom he had reunited with for so long, and tasked with protecting them in the name of the Kree, becoming the delinquent but noble cosmic Terran vigilante that was Marvel Boy.

Secret Invasion

During the Secret Invasion commenced by the diabolical Skrulls on planet Earth, some of the Raft's security systems were turned off by a Skrull computer virus, including Noh-Varr's cell. Escaping the prison, Noh-Varr came across the very moment wherein, he had encountered his father Mar-Vell once again, with Noh-Varr never even realizing it would be their last moment as father and son. Before sacrificing himself to save mankind by destroying the Tesseract-powered explosive that was going to be detonated by the Skrulls all around the globe, Mar-Vell tearfully asked Noh-Varr to save Earth his last will, before telling him how much he was proud of him and tells that he would always love him as his only son. Greatly inspired by his father after seeing him perish from the great sacrifice, the still grieving but motivated Noh-Varr made his way to New York City and participated in the battle against the remainder of the Skrull invaders, helping to turn the tide and end finishing the final battle once and for all. When the battle had ended, Noh-Varr willingly surrendered to the authorities, returning to his secured cell in the Raft for a short while as he quietly mourns for his father's passing.

Dark Avengers

Genis-Vell Earth-61615 2

Noh-Varr becomes a founding member of the Dark Avengers

In the end of the Skrull invasion, seemingly reformed supervillain Norman Osborn became a national hero and the head of the superhuman community. While recruiting a new team of Avengers, Osborn came to Noh-Varr and convinced him to join his team under the alias of Captain Marvel, as an exchange of freeing him from the Raft through legal process. During the Dark Avengers' first official assemblies by H.A.M.M.E.R., they were called by the government to deal with different threats, including the likes of other notorious villains, from the aggressive and bloodthirsty mysterious mutates from the Savage Land to the powerful interdimensional warlock from an alternate reality known as Mysterium, along with intentionally framing most heroes as dangerous criminals and fugitives of the country, so only he and his enforcers would be left to "protect" the innocent ones from other evil forces.

However, Noh-Varr was eventually betrayed and extremely devastated by the time he learned from her that most of these Avengers were composed of criminals who have always been pretending to be heroes. As a result, he then abandoned the team out of guilt for believing that he has tainted his father's legacy and reputation, along with his fiery anger for his crooked teammates, although he decided not to return into prison and instead went into hiding from the authorities, which was now mostly controlled by Norman Osborn himself. Escaping the clutches of his former allies turned enemies, Noh-Varr took a temporary mantle of an armored vigilante known as the Protector, to which he continued protecting the lives of the innocent ones who were oppressed from the H.A.M.M.E.R. and the Dark Avenger's tyrannical reign without necessarily having to join the heroes' side in their secret resistance, in the meantime.
