Att-Lass is a proud Kree warrior and achieves the rank of Captain. He is given his own light cruiser and is a special operative for the Supreme Intelligence. He goes on to take the alias of Mr. Atlas and works with Doctor Minerva. The pair go to an AIM Weapons Exposition and manages to capture Quasar in order to obtain his quantum bands. Quasar later saves Atlas and then banishes him from Earth.
Atlas and Minerva then travel to Captain Marvel's tomb and, despite interference from the Shi'ar Imperial Guard and Quasar, obtains Captain Marvel's nega-bands. Using his new found power, Atlas travels to Earth and battles Wonder Man, only to be defeated by the hero. He is seemingly rescued by Doctor Minerva only to discover she is an impostor leading him to the Imperial Guard. The Guardsmen strip him of the nega-bands and telepathically interrogate him before he is again freed.
Atlas joins the Kree Starforce and battles the Avengers before the detonation of the “Nega-Bomb” that destroys nearly all of Kree society. Atlas disappears during this time, secretly going into hiding with Minn-Erva.
