Who is Raava in Secret Invasion?

Raava is the name of the Skrull who replaced Rhodey in Secret Invasion. While we don’t know that much about her life so far, we know she’s dedicated to the Rebel Skrull cause and totally loyal to Gravik and is even willing to put up with death threats from her boss if it means the Skrulls get a new homeland.

Who is Raava in the Marvel comics?

In the comics, Raava is a Skrull pirate who’s seeking vengeance against the wider Skrull Empire, which she blames for the death of her children, Skragg and Raavaka. Created by Saladin Ahmed and Christian Ward, Raava first appeared in 2021’s Black Bolt #1.

Known as the Un-Skrulled, Raava lacks the natural ability to shapeshift  (in sharp contrast to her small-screen counterpart), but she makes up for this by being the toughest warrior this side of Knowhere. With her two swords, Angry Daughter and Hungry Son, she helped Black Bolt and a ragtag group of prisoners escape from a Skrull spaceship.
