Jaketch had the strength and power of a normal Skrull who engaged in regular physical exercise. He had good targeting skills when firing handguns. As Apprentice Executioner for the High Court, he had two guns that initially paralyzed the victims, then boosted their metabolism so that the victims would age at an intensely increased rate (for example, adult humans would die of old age within three days of being shot). He utilized a face mask that covered his eyes, so that he shot at heat signatures and not on visual identification. He was ambitious and saw killing as a means for promotion.
Captured by the Skrull Emperor Dorrek's forces in a skirmish with Xandar, the Fantastic Four (actually only Mr. Fantastic, the Invisible Girl and the Thing) were held in power restraining devices and paraded before the High Court, the supreme judicial center of the Skrull Empire. With his guns crossing his chest, Jaketch stood guard over the prisoners while Hagar the High Judicator aggressively vilified them in what was a show trial before a packed arena. The Jury of Six were also jeering the three members of the Fantastic Four.
With his restraints removed, Mr. Fantastic approached the Jury, pled for understanding and sought to have the Skrull Empire leave the decimated world of Xandar alone. However, the High Judicator ordered Jaketch to execute Mr. Fantastic and he was gunned down from behind. The Invisible Girl then rushed to her husband's side while the Thing leapt at Hagar. The High Judicator cringed in fear as he demanded that Jaketch protect him, who fired again and shot the Thing in the back. As he fired at the Thing, Jaketch dreamed of becoming Lord Executioner, and then ordering Hagar's execution. The Invisible Girl then cried out in defiance, turning invisible and seeking retribution, but was still shot by Jaketch, who fired not on sight but by heat pattern. He then stood triumphant in the arena.
The bodies of the three Fantastic Four members were dragged back to a holding cell.
The Fantastic Four later awoke from the paralyzing effect of Jaketch's guns and were told of the weapons' debilitating effects.
