Welcome to the Kree Empire is the 4th episode of the second season of Avengers: Earths Mightiest Heroes and the 30th episode of the overal series.
Carol Danvers is meeting with Abigail Brand and Henry Gyrich (Skrull) and a Kree ship attacks the S.W.O.R.D. ship. As they attempt to defend their ship, Danvers with other S.W.O.R.D Agents fly a S.W.O.R.D. jet to Earth. Meanwhile, Brand and Gyrich hold down the Kree. Unknown to them, a Kree ship has already arrived at Earth with Ronan the Accuser, Captain Marvel, Yon-Rogg, and Kalum-Lo setting foot on the Earth with S.W.O.R.D agents being laid out by them. Captain Marvel tries to convince Ronan of the power of humans, with Ronan retorting to Marvel that he aided the Avengers to victory against 459.
Then, Ms. Marvel shows up and battles Ronan. Captain Marvel recognizes Ms Marvel, which untimely distracts Ms. Marvel and Ronan crushes her. In the Avengers Mansion, Iron Man, Captain America are talking. Hulk tells them that the Kree are invading while eating chicken. Abigail Brand and Henry Gyrich are still fighting Kree soldiers, and are agruing. At Earth, the Kree have arrived at the battle location. Ronan says that the humans will either surrender or die. Iron Man shows up and confronts Ronan, so does Captain America and Hulk. Captain America tells the Avengers to attack the Kree due to his extreme hatred for them (as he is a Skrull imposter). Cap throws his Shield at Ronan. Ms Marvel shows up and attacks Captain Marvel.
At the S.W.O.R.D. ship, Abigail Brand fakes surrendering and shoots down Kree soilders. Brand and S.W.O.R.D travel to the Kree ship and tell them to surrender. Brand offers Sydren a job at S.W.O.R.D. and he accepts in exchange for protection. Ronan takes down Hulk, Captain America, and Iron Man. Ms. Marvel and Ronan battle again but this time, Ms. Marvel wins.
At the end, Iron Man and Ms. Marvel are in Prison 42 with Captain Marvel who is locked up, and Tony requests that Ms. Marvel join the Avengers, and she happily accepts. Captain Marvel dejectedly remarks that because of their actions, the Kree would come full force at Earth and devaste it. Meanwhile, Captain America is in a warehouse with a communicator and he says that they need to move up the time tables, because the Kree are coming. Halfway through the transmission, he turns back into his Skrull form halfway.
The title refers to the invasion of the Kree Empire.
