Created from the minds of thousands of Kree, Supremor was originally designed to create a cosmic cube. However, the living computer was intelligent enough to recognize the danger the cube would pose to Kree-kind and refused. Over time, the Supreme Intelligence took control of the Kree and ruled it for millennia. The supercomputer was deposed, lobotomized and killed several times but always recovered, until the destruction of Hala by J’Son of Spartax.
