Kree Milestones and Unlockables

Remember That You Are Kree!

The Kree people have lost their way since House Fiyero took
power. You want to lead them to the heights of their former glory.

1 XP when you discuss the glories of the Kree Empire.
3 XP when you publicly question the ability of your superiors
to lead.
10 XP when you get into a position to lead the Kree Empire into
greater glories or sever all ties to the Kree and become
an outcast.

Genetic Kickstart

The Kree have been evolutionarily stagnant for generations.
Whether by experimentation or bargains with strange powers,
you’re determined to jump-start your genetics.

1 XP when you discuss Kree evolution either with a scientist
or a strange power.
3 XP when you create an asset for jump-starting Kree genetics.
10 XP when you either create a powerful Kree hybrid to add
to the empire’s glory or give up on the Kree, declaring
the species en route to extinction.


Kree heroes or those with ties to the Kree can spend XP on
the following unlockables:

[5 XP/10 XP] Activate Sentry: The Kree spread their advanced
robots, Sentries, throughout the galaxy for a variety of purposes.
For 5 XP, a prominent Kree can find the nearest Sentry
and program it for new duty to assist for one Scene. For 10
XP, the Sentry will accompany the heroes for the duration of
the Event.

[5 XP/10 XP] Kree Assistance: The Kree are fiercely loyal and
have no patience for weakness. A hero who has proven his
worth can unlock the assistance of a Kree squad—perhaps the
remnants of the Kree Star Corps or other independent military
unit. For 5 XP, the unit assists for one Scene, and then departs
for its own business. For 10 XP, the squad will accompany until
the end of the Event.

[5 XP/10 XP] Unlock Baroness S’bak: Although she’s more
concerned with her own schemes, Baroness S’bak isn’t blind
to what’s happening with the Annihilation Wave moving
through Skrull space. For 5 XP, you receive a personal favor
from Baroness S’bak, such as aid in an investigation, a military
diversion, or backup on a mission. For 10 XP, Baroness
S’bak lends the heroes a Team 3d8 squad of Skrull warships,
shares secret information gathered from her circle of spies
regarding the Event, or provides some other significant aid
within her powers.

to aid the heroes using their vast network of disguised
troops. For 5 XP, the heroes receive one-time assistance from

willing to sacrifice multiple Skrull agents for one mission.

a Warskrull as an ally, making him available as a supporting
Watcher character for one battle. For 10 XP, the hero can

you’re declared to be unfit to serve the Nova Corps.


[5XP/10XP] Unlock Nova Reinforcements: The Nova Corps
may have a fairly rigid command structure, but on occasion,
non-Nova Corps members have inspired them to do great
things. For 5 XP, the player gains command of a Nova Cohort
(Team 5d6 Millennians) for use in one Scene. For 10 XP, the
Cohort is upgraded to the rank of Denarian (Team 5d8) and

of the Event.

Re: Milestones

Not All Is Negative in the Negative Zone

As a resident of the Negative Zone, those in the positive matter

1 XP when you try to put life in the Negative Zone into perspective
for these positive matter folk.
3 XP when you fight against those who do evil and bring

once. For 10 XP, the portal can be accessed throughout an Act.

[5 XP/10 XP] Positive and Negative Together: Though the

to be fans of any in the positive matter universe, Annihilus
has united both sides of matter against him. For 5 XP, you may
recruit the assistance of a group of Negative Zoners for one
favor, like Blastaar sharing his teleportation technology or a
group of freed UX-73 prisoners helping make a distraction.

hero for Act Two.

Re: Milestones

Galactus Must Be Fed

Galactus is a necessary evil to ensure cosmic balance. Though
it’s terrible, he must be kept fed—or else the consequences will
be ever more far-reaching.

1 XP when you study a planet’s resources.
3 XP when you find a piece of a world that you will keep safe
from the hunger of Galactus.
10 XP when you either feed a populated world to Galactus or
declare his hunger evil and leave his service.

Galactus Must Be Stopped

Devourer of countless worlds, including possibly your own,
Galactus must finally be stopped before he destroys another inhabited

1 XP when you reference a world that’s been destroyed by
the hunger of Galactus.
3 XP when you inflict stress or a complication on Galactus or
his herald.
10 XP when you successfully drive Galactus away from a populated
world he was intending to feed on, or aid Galactus’
feeding in order to preserve cosmic consonance.


Though a being of unimaginable power, Galactus has shown
that he can be reasoned with; he even possesses some measure
of honor.

[5, 10 or 15 XP] Favor from Galactus: Galactus pays his debts.
For 5 XP, Galactus will do one minor favor for you that does
not tax him, such as having his Herald transport you to another
well known location or provide a piece of important information.
For 10 XP, Galactus himself will instantly teleport
you and your allies to virtually anywhere in the galaxy, completely
restore you and your allies, or loan you a piece of
advanced technology. Alternatively, Galactus may lend his
current Herald to your cause. For 15 XP, Galactus will grant
you access to the Power Cosmic, perhaps even choosing you
as a new Herald.

Re: Milestones

Clear Your Name

You were wrongly imprisoned by one of the major galactic
powers and sentenced to life in the Kyln. Though it may seem
hopeless, you’re determined to clear your name of the charges.

1 XP when you protest your innocence to your alleged crimes.
3 XP when you create an asset in order to help clear your
10 XP when you either clear your name or take full responsibility
for your crimes.

Infiltrate the Prison

The worst of the worst prisoners of the universe are imprisoned
in the Kyln. One of these prisoners has information of critical importance,
but the only way to get it is to enter the prison yourself
as a prisoner.

1 XP when you ask about your target prisoner.
3 XP when you help your target prisoner out of a tight spot.
10 XP when either you get the information you need, or take
over Kyln and rise up as the prison’s warlord.


[5 XP/10 XP] Prisoner Information: The Kyln prisoners are
the scum of the universe, but they also know some of the
universe’s best kept secrets. For 5 XP, one of the prisoners is
willing to provide some information regarding a faction that
the heroes are dealing with. For 10 XP, a prisoner knows a
piece of unique lore—which is likely the reason he was put
away to begin with.

[5 XP/10 XP] Inmate Assistance: Some of the most dangerous
individuals in the cosmos are locked in the Kyln, and
they could be useful—if not particularly trustworthy—allies
after the Annihilation Wave destroys the prison. For 5 XP, one
of the surviving Kyln inmates teams up with the heroes and
aids them for as long as it’s in the prisoner’s interest. For 10
XP, the prisoner remains loyal, wishing to redeem himself for
past transgressions.

[5 XP/10 XP] Recruit Omega Core: One of the last surviving
Omega Core officers from the Kyln is at your service. For 5
XP, he deputizes you into the Omega Core and grants you
information and access to resources. For 10 XP, the officer
joins you and fights to the death to bring Annihilus to justice
and avenge his fallen comrades.

Re: Milestones

Minor Power

Compared to the likes of the Kree or the Shi’ar, your people are
considered small and weak. You’re here to show the galaxy that
they are a force to be respected.

1 XP when you criticize the major powers of the galaxy.
3 XP when you team up with a major cosmic power in order
to raise your people up.
10 XP when you see your people rise up and take their rightful
place as major powers in the galaxy or when your efforts
lead to a major catastrophe for your people.

Dead Race

Your people stand on the brink of extinction, if they’re not there
already. It’s up to you to preserve what’s left of them and make
sure their memory doesn’t vanish, too.

1 XP when you speak of your people’s art and culture.
3 XP when you create an asset from knowledge that only your
people knew about.
10 XP when you either create a monument to your people’s
existence so that they’ll be remembered until the end
of time or find a way to re-populate the galaxy with your


These unlockables are available for any hero following one
of the Other Cosmic Locations Milestones above.

[5XP/10XP] Allied Boon: Making an alliance with a civilization
not directly involved with the Annihilation War can add
a wild card to the struggle. By buying this unlockable during
a Transition Scene, an alien race issues a boon of some kind.
For 5 XP, the boon can be something to assist in a Scene, such
as safe refuge in the Keystone Quadrant. For 10 XP, the boon
is something more substantial such a gift of Galadorian Tech
from the Spaceknights (an extra d8 power trait), or a sentient
vessel on loan from the Spartoi for the remainder of the Event.

[5XP/10XP] Allied Forces: Despite the tendency for civilizations
throughout the galaxy to make war with each other,
when faced with a greater foe, those same civilizations can be
made willing to band together. For 5 XP, an allied 5-man squad
of Expert level forces (such as a squad of Badoon hunters) acts
as bodyguards to the heroes for one Scene. For 10 XP, the new
alien bodyguards stay with the heroes for the remainder of
the Event, or you can choose to upgrade them to Master level.

[10XP/15XP] The Lost: The universe has lost countless planets
to forces such as Galactus, but in many cases, their people live
on. Though scattered, they’re frequently the bearers of lost
knowledge or power. For 10 XP, members of an orphan race
offer some ancient and helpful knowledge that their people
guarded before their destruction. For 15 XP, they grant you a
source of power, such as a Symbiote joining.

Re: Milestones
Note that for the racial Milestones, all you have to do to get one is justify how your character is linked to that race or faction, they do not have to be a member of it necessarily.

Note that the miscellaneous ones at the bottom have no unlockables per se, but you may use the experience gained to get generic unlockables, new characters to play or even a cosmic or alien item. There is a special scene to gain a new Power Set of your choice later in the game if you have 15 xp for it, so remember to take note of those xp triggers!
