Ronan the Accuser is a major antagonist in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. He serves as the chief antagonist of Guardians of the Galaxy and a minor adversary in Captain Marvel. A discrepancy of him is besides mentioned in What If…T’Challa Became a Star-Lord?, the second episode of the Marvel animated anthology series What If…?. He is a mighty Kree Warrior and the air force officer of the Dark Aster, once affiliated with Thanos. He is besides the former knob of Nebula and Korath the Pursuer, arsenic well as becoming the arch-nemesis of Drax the Destroyer, given his character in the deaths of Drax ‘s wife and daughter. He was portrayed by Lee Pace.



Born as a Kree radical, Ronan the Accuser lost many of his fore-fathers ( his father, grandfather and great-grandfather ) to the Kree-Nova war, which led to him developing a hatred towards the Nova Empire and their planet Xandar for their culture. finally, Ronan built himself into ability, becoming a new member of the Kree military coerce called the Accusers, where he helped the Supreme Intelligence in waging war against the Skrulls .

Captain Marvel

Ronan briefly appeared leading a evanesce of warships after being contacted by Yon-Rogg about the Skrulls ‘ current placement on Earth. Under the Supreme Intelligence ‘s orders, Ronan gets his ships to fire ballistic missiles in rate to destroy Earth and eradicate all of its life. however, former Starforce penis Carol Danvers utilized her powers to attack the fleet and destroy the missiles in order to save the Earth, forcing a horrified Ronan to have his remaining forces to retreat, but not before noting that they would get Danvers back and use her as a weapon .

Guardians of the Galaxy

Ronan became upset to hear that the Kree Empire and Nova Empire have signed a peace treaty to end the Kree-Nova War, finding to be a shame as his forefathers ‘ death will not be met with department of justice. As such, he furiously defects from the Kree Empire and joined forces with Thanos, who assigned him a job : Ronan must seek out and deliver an orb containing the Power Stone to Thanos, and in come back, Thanos will use to destroy Xandar for Ronan. Agreeing to the share, Ronan sent Thanos ‘ adoptive daughter Gamora to retrieve the Orb without knowing that she planned to betray him and Thanos. Later, Ronan is called by the other because Thanos wants to talk to him. During the meet the other passes belittling Ronan, finally yelling at him for raising his voice in Thanos ‘ bearing. Ronan, tired of the early ‘s insults, kills him with his Universal Weapon, prompting Thanos to turn around and speak to him directly, saying their bargain is still in place but he will kill him if he does not bring him the Orb. Ronan finally tracks Gamora thanks to a message from Drax, Ronan pursues Gamora but is stopped by Drax that only seeks revenge against him for murdering his syndicate. Ronan well defeats Drax, Nebula called to inform him that she has recovered the Orb. Having recovered the Orb, Thanos contacts him that he handwriting over the Orb, then Ronan decides to stay with the Infinity Stone and informs him that after destroying Xandar, he will be the future .
Ronan arrives at Xandar in his Dark Aster, when he is about to destroy Xandar the Nova Corps stop him obstructing his vision, while the Ravagers and Rocket protect the civilians and the others decide to confront Ronan, but they are no problem for Ronan who well wins. When Ronan is prepared to kill, Rocket collides his ship with the Dark Aster causing the end of this. When it seemed that they had defeated the Accuser, Ronan appears from the debris, and starts making fun of them by calling them “ Guardians of the Galaxy ”, but merely stops when Star-Lord distracts him with a dance duel, in which Drax destroys the Universal Weapon. Quill immediately grabs the Orb that about killed him for his power, but his teammates hold his hands to help him against Ronan, who did n’t understand how simple mortals could withstand the might of an Infinity Stone and demanded to know how they could do that ; with Quill proclaiming that they rightfully are the “ Guardians of the Galaxy ”. Enraged, Ronan tries to attack again with his hammer, alone to find out that it has already been destroyed moments before Quill and his teammates use the might of the Orb to disintegrate Ronan. In his last irritating moments, Ronan screams out of in raging pain before his body explodes, killing him and ending his dictatorship for good. With Ronan finally defeated, the Orb is handed over to the Nova Corps for safekeeping. Despite his death, Ronan ‘s actions had dangerous consequences for the entire universe : his death outraged many Kree citizens, who declare the Guardians as heretics and enemies of the Kree Empire. even worse, his betrayal of Thanos led the latter to personally embark on a pitiless bay for the Infinity Stones. After acquiring the Infinity Gauntlet, Thanos completed Ronan ‘s cultivate by personally invading Xandar and stealing the Orb before using it to kill all of Xandar ‘s populace ( including the Nova Corps ). even after acquiring the Infinity Stones, Thanos sent out a death wave that wipes out half of the universe ‘s populace ; even the Guardians ( except for Rocket ) suffer Ronan ‘s destiny as they disintegrate to their deaths .

Avengers: Endgame

Although he does not physically appear in the film, Ronan is briefly mentioned by the 2014 Thanos when he first gear assigns Gamora and Nebula to assist him in acquiring the Power Stone ; besides mentioning that his ambitions must be kept in check despite Thanos himself losing batch of his finish late on. however, this design is apparently abandoned when, through Nebula ‘s sensors intercepting her future counterpart ‘s, Thanos and his other minions realize that the Avengers and their allies had traveled back in time to collect the Infinity Stones for themselves to undo his actions in the future. due to Thanos ‘ departure, however, it can be deduced that as their reunion never came to happen, Ronan was left unable to be instructed by Thanos in how to retrieve the Power Stone, not only possibly delaying his planned genocidal attack on Xandar, but probable preventing the formation of the Guardians of the Galaxy vitamin a well. But it is besides potential that Ronan searches the Orb for himself and was killed by the Guardians of the Galaxy as the original timeline .

What If…?

In the second episode “ What If … T’Challa Became a Star-Lord ? “, a discrepancy of Ronan is mentioned two times. The beginning time is when Korath the Pursuer and two Sakaraans meet up with Star-Lord, who in this alternate universe is Prince T’Challa from Wakanda preferably than Peter Quill, when he finds the Orb. Korath expresses his admiration for Star-Lord but admits his responsibility of fighting him due to Ronan ‘s temper, but Star-Lord defeats all the Sakaraans easily adenine well as Korath before offering him a target in his friends and crowd. During a party afterwards, it ‘s revealed that unlike his master counterpart, Ronan was ineffective to carry on the massacre of the Kylosians thanks to Star-Lord, sol Drax the Destroyer never turned into a criminal but alternatively into a courteous and funny bartender, with his wife and daughter still animated. It ‘s nameless what Ronan is doing now without the Orb, specially as Thanos and Nebula are shown to have been redeemed by Star-Lord, but given Star-Lord ‘s fame and exploits, it ‘s likely that Ronan is n’t considered a threat and most of his plans are normally foiled .

In Lego

Ronan besides appears as a collectible fictional character in the 2013 video game, LEGO Marvel Superheroes and has been released as an official Lego minifigure in the set 76021 .

In Video games

Disney Infinity

Ronan appears in Disney Infinity: 2.0 Edition, trying to prevent the Guardians from stealing his Infinity Stone. He follows them to nowhere but finally gets defeated by them. He is besides available as a playable fictional character for the Guardians of the Galaxy Play Set and Toy Box 2.0 .


Ronan was extremely passionate and energetic about his campaign ; however, he delusionally believed that his cause, which was the genocide of Xandar and all its animation creatures, was righteous. He did not see himself as a fanatic or a terrorist ( both of which he was ) rather he simply considered himself a follower of ancient Kree laws, and in his mind, anyone who refused to follow them was an foe who deserved performance. Brutal, crimson, persistent and grim, Ronan stands as an exemplar of rage, fanaticism, uncontrolled hatred and total cruelty. He besides shows little regard for his people despite his claims.

however, before the sign of the Xandarian-Kree treaty, Ronan was much more composed and rational number. He seemed to know his limits as he fled of Captain Marvel ‘s formidable attack, demonstrating that he was not an individual who had disposed of his own men unnecessarily while promising to return. But he was even extremist in his manners and acts, willing to atomic warhead planets promiscuously for the function of killing Skrulls, an act that even Yon-Rogg disapproved as he besides put his own race in danger. His hate of Xandarians seems to come from having lost his don, grandfather and great-grandfather to a war with Xandar. But he ignores the fact that the Kree empire begun the war and it ‘s implied he ‘s just using a cover for his own cruelty. thus, he has no true motivative for his actions apart from sadism. This traits make him feared by closely everyone. Ronan proudly hated Xandarians, considering their culture and very being were a disease and he was merely “ curing ” the population by eradicating them. He took huge pride in his religion of a Kree, however, his species and superiors actually signed a peace treaty with the Xandarians, indicating that he had no respect for anybody who disagreed with his own impression. Ronan had no respect towards his allies ; he callously sacrificed his own soldiers during the attack on Xandar and showed no refer over Korath ‘s end nor Nebula ‘s abandonment, neither the other, which he killed alone for being annoying. He even betrayed and threatened Thanos ( whom many considered the most knock-down being in the universe ) after coming into the monomania of an Infinity Stone. That said, it is unknown if he would have gone through with attacking him. Ronan was shown to be identical sadistic, because he took great personal please in the annoyance and suffering he inflicted upon his victims. Drax the Destroyer recalled hearing Ronan laugh as he slaughtered his wife and daughter and when he confronted Ronan over this, he only mocked him further and claimed to not recall their deaths. When Star-Lord screamed in agony as he was torn apart by the Power Stone, Ronan looked on and laughed at his foe ‘s suffer without an snow leopard of feel for. When Ronan told to Drax that he remembers his family, he taunted him, telling that they were hapless. overall, Ronan lacks any honor that supports his belief. His callous nature makes him one of the worst villains in the MCU .

Xandar, you stand accused. Your wretched peace treaty will not save you now. This is the tinder on which you burn!
~ Ronan to Xandarians
(Prisoner: You will never rule Xandar.) No. I WILL CURE IT!
~ Ronan plotting to eradicate Xandar.
Yes. That was our agreement. Bring you the orb and you will destroy Xandar for me. However, now that I know it contains an Infinity Stone, I wonder what use I have for you…
~ Ronan to Thanos.
(wields the Infinity Stone) You call ME boy? I will unfurl one thousand years of Kree justice on Xandar and burn it to its core! Then, Thanos, I’m coming for you!
~ Ronan betrays Thanos.
I don’t recall killing your family. I doubt I’ll remember killing you either.
~ Ronan during his fight with Drax on Knowhere.
I was mistaken… I do remember your family. Their screams were pitiful-
~ Ronan recounting killing Drax’s family.
What are you doing?
~ Ronan, confused by dancing Peter.
You’re mortal! How? (Peter: You said it yourself, bitch. We’re the Guardians of the Galaxy.)
~ Ronan’s final words before the Guardians kill him.



  • Due to the Skrulls being owned by Fox during the time of production, the Xandarians may be their substitutes in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. However, the Skrulls debuted in the 2019 film Captain Marvel after Disney bought Fox.
  • Lee Pace tried out for the role of Peter Quill / Star-Lord, but it went to Chris Pratt instead, who also played Emmet from The LEGO Movie (which also came out in 2014).
  • Within the comics, Ronan was portrayed as more of an Anti-Villain as the Supreme Accuser of the Kree Empire; while in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, he’s a renegade who’s collecting the Infinity Stones for Thanos and is more than willing to commit genocide on the Xandarians. In the 616 universe, Ronan started out as somewhat of a straight villain who revolted against the Supreme Intelligence. Since the events of Annihilation, the character is portrayed as a harsh but honorable anti-hero in a similar vein of Judge Dredd. He even became a member of a group of space heroes called the Annihilators.
  • Describing Ronan, Gunn said, “He is the primary villain, and he is a really twisted guy, he has a really religious bent in this film. He has a very sick and twisted view of what morality is; strength is virtue and weakness is sin and that is what he lives by, and I think he is very scary because of his beliefs, which are real to him.” Pace, who originally auditioned for Peter Quill, described Ronan as a “psycho” and a “monster”.
  • This incarnation wears face paint rather than a mask.
  • In the universe, only three characters have not feared Ronan when they met him: Drax, Thanos and Danvers. In Drax’s case, it was because of his rage and hatred towards Ronan after he killed his family, Thanos was much stronger than the Accuser and Carol had too much powers to fear Ronan, shown when she destroyed an Accuser’s battle cruiser and all of its missiles.
