For years, Crita served as the audiovisual communications specialist aboard Flogg’s Mothership. Her purplish coloration and claw-like fingernails were the only visible features that marked her as a Mutant. Although Crita was quite vain, she was a highly trained combatant and the most intelligent of the Mutants. A creature of coldblooded ambition, Crita was drawn to the power Skeletor represented. Noting this, he sent Crita to advise and train the cruel Gleanons. Under her tutelage, the Gleanons became a vicious army, although they were eventually defeated by Mara and her Myte soldiers. After the battle, Crita escaped into space via an emergency shuttle pod. Years later, shortly after the Third Ultimate Battleground, Crita landed on Eternia and encountered Evil-Lyn and Skeleteen. Impressed by their military forces, Crita earned Skeleteen’s trust by regaling him with tales of his father.
