A predecessor to Conan, Kull was active on Earth millennia ago. When Kull was an infant he was abandoned in a forest, and he was raised by a group of tigers. Some time later Kull was found by the Tribe of the Sea; he ended up becoming one one of them and a warrior for them. For stopping the sacrifice of a woman by the Atlanteans, Kull became the enemy of the Atlanteans, and later ended up becoming enslaved by the Lemurians, the enemies of the Atlanteans. Kull escaped and became an outlaw, but then was arrested and forced to fight as a gladiator in a Valusian arena. Through a plot of the Valusian people, who hated their king, Kull ended up killing the King of Valusia, the westernmost of the Seven Empires of Thuria, and taking his place.
After becoming the King of Valusia he spent much time fighting the Serpent Men and foiling their plots. Kull's final fate in the Marvel Universe has not been revealed.
