Captain Marvel 25

The flashbacks are mostly retold flashbacks.
Only these two could be new:
14:3 (Skragg turns into a policeman) takes place between pages 3 (Scragg receives orders off panel from Thanos) & 4 (knocks on Pr Savannah's door)
14:6 (Skragg as policeman leaves in car with Rick Jones) takes place between 7:5 (Skragg takes Jones out of the building) and 7:6 (they ride in car) but it's just a way to retell in one panel what was told in two earlier.

I think there might have been a confusion from previous indexers who imagined Skragg appeared in this issue before the FB where he turns into a policeman. Either they could have believed he was a member of Squadron X on pages 1-2 who fight Capt Marvel or the masterlord on page 3. Skragg isn't any of these characters (Skragg and Super-Skrull are Squadron S). The character on page 3 is Thanos. The flashback on page 14 is therefore his earliest chronological appearance.

If we do this minutely, this gives
JONES, RICHARD MILHOUSE "RICK"
CM 24
CM 25 (1-7:5)
CM 25-FB
CM 25 (7:6-20)
CM 26

SAVANNAH, LOU-ANN
CM 24
CM 25 (6-7)
CM 25-FB

SKRAGG
CM 25-BTS (3)
CM 25-FB (14:6)
CM 25 (4-20)
CM 26

This is overdoing it in my opinion. For instance the recap of the previous events on page 14 shows both Captain marvel and Super-Skrull between panels of the fight on pages 8-12 (page 11 especially) but there's no mention of a FB for any of them in this issue.
It would be as well to ignore those flashbacks for the other characters:

JONES, RICHARD MILHOUSE "RICK"
CM 24
CM 25
CM 26

SAVANNAH, LOU-ANN
CM 24
CM 25
CM 26

SKRAGG
CM 25
CM 26

According to Col Fury's answer to my FF 16 post, we should insert minimal flashbacks for Super-Skrull and Captain Mar-vell

Captain Mar-vell
CM 25 (1-9:2)
CM 25-FB (14:7)
CM 25 (9:3-20)

14:9 is same as 12:1
14:10 is same as 12:3

Super-Skrull
CM 25 (1-10:6)
CM 25-FB (14:8)
CM 25 (10:7-12:1)
CM 25-FB (14:9)
CM 25 (12:2-20)

14:4 possibly takes place between 6:1 and 6:2 for Rick Jones and Skragg
