Explanation of the conversion:

History: Lyja was chosen to replace Alicia Masters, the Thing's girlfriend, in order to spy on the Fantastic Four for the Skrull military. She replaced Alicia during the Secret Wars, but was sad to discover that the Thing didn't return to the Fantastic Four afterwards, so she started to date the Human Torch II. She eventually fell in love with him and married him in the guise of Alicia (Fantastic Four #300).

Years later she was discovered by the Thing and forced to show her true identity (Fantastic Four #357).

She helped the Fantastic Four on a rescue mission to save Alicia, but was seemingly killed in the attempt by Paibok, The Power Skrull (Fantastic Four #358).

She was actually saved by Paibok and altered to give her super powers, and took the name Lazerfist. She returned to Earth and attacked the Human Torch II, but then betrayed Paibok and helped the Fantastic Four (Fantastic Four #374).

She then aided the Fantastic Four for some time, battling foes including Doctor Doom, Devos, Klaw and Huntara. After the Fantastic Four were seemingly killed she decided to take up a human guise full time and live out her life on Earth.

Trivia: In the alternate future depicted in the M2 series of comics, Lyja is a member of the Fantastic Five who goes by the name Ms. Fantastic. She has increased shapeshifting powers. She is married to the Human Torch II and they have a son.

Powers: Lyja is a skilled member if the Skrull race. Skrulls are reptilian shape shifting humanoids. They can grow or shrink somewhat and change their appearance to any living thing. She has shown the ability to grow claws and a functional pair of wings. All Skrulls have photographic memories, the ability to regenerate damage and can enter a deathlike trance. For a time Lyja had implants that allowed her to generate energy blasts from her hands and to fly, but that implant was removed.

For a short time Lyja was granted a rock-like hide and superhuman strength by a strange machine. Lyja once had an implant which allowed her to fly and shoot energy blasts from her hands.
