WARNING: The following article contains minor spoilers for Captain Marvel, in theaters now.
Ronan the Accuser first appeared in Guardians of the Galaxy. Although he's not really a fan-favorite villain, he did have a short appearance in Captain Marvel. However, there's a lot you might not realize about Ronan the Accuser.
Created by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby and first appearing in 1967's Fantastic Four #65, Ronan has a long history in the comics. The films definitely simplify him, but his appearance raises a lot of interesting implications about the character and his involvement in both the Kree Empire and with Thanos. Although Ronan is certainly a fanatic, there's some indication that the Kree Empire really didn't care much to stop his attempts at killing as many members of the Nova Corp. as possible in Guardians of the Galaxy.
Check out the video below for more of what you might not have realized about Ronan the Accuser.
As Ronan the Accuser died in Guardians of the Galaxy, it seems pretty likely that he won't appear in the future, though there's a chance that he could appear in movies set before that one.
