Secret Invasion (Maybe Spoilers, Maybe Skrulls!)

Postby Zero » Sun Feb 17, 2008 4:10 am

Cover to #2

Ok so are these the skrulls? No these are not the skrulls. I'd guess that at most, two of them are all Skrullicious, and more likely none. Beast is the one that concerns me the most, but I'm fairly happy to guess that what we have here are some Skrulls shifted into old-school shapes and saying "Hey Guys, we be the real deal, not them skrully guys!"

I'll go on record as saying NOT ONE of those characters is a skrull.

I think the most likely is Spidey. Out of those, his change was the most recent and have a feeling One More Day deals with skrulls.

Hasn't Marvel already said that Stark isn't a Skrull as that would be too easy an out?

They have. With BND being the big thing it is then that fairly well confirms Spidey in my eyes too. Emma's been wonderful in the X books and I doubt they'd shaft them that bad, as it would send Cyclops right back to square one.

Stark is in the clear, yes. Spidey's too obvious. No, the ONLY ones in the image who are candidates, IMO, are Beast and Hawkeye. And I just don't feel them as skrulls.

I'll laugh if the Skrulls turn out to be Brother Voodoo and Frog Man, or something similar...

Yeah, but how long is BND going to go for? I could potentially see it lasting up until the final issues of SI where it's revealed that Spider-Man is a skrull and the real Spidey is in La-La Land.

I'm thinking, it'll be something like that, with ONE big name, and that is Black Bolt.

My guesses would be that the F4 will have SkrullJohnny. Look at how much he grew during Waid's run, and look at what a jackass he is in Millar's. Now I'll be happy to chalk this up to bad writting if I'm wrong, but it'd be a fairly easy out since Johnny is a fairly big name who's done nothing of interest since he was Galactus' herald.
On the Mighty side all eyes are on Wonder Man, because he's dating Carol (who we know isn't a skrull at the moment because of events in her own book) and sucks. After the recent NA I'd look closely at Black Widow too, but that'd make Bucky sad and so I'd rather that not happen.
New Avengers have Echo or maybe Iron Fist. He's off in some martial arts thingy and might not have made it back just yet, and she can't read lips when everyone's all masky. That I'd bet is down to some slight art errors though, but everyone else is fairly well covered.
I don't know enough about the current X folk, but let's say Angel because why not? He's out of the blue skin, and he was romancing Husk in Austen's run. Undoing a lot of Austen's bad writing might make some people very happy. On the other hand, undoing the Juggernaut thing would be more in tune with Marvel's 'everything as it once was' policy, and easy to do. It'd also suck.
Maria Hill too, or whoever put her in SHIELD.

I'll go further:

Anyone, ANYONE, who is a suspect based on bad character writing in the last five years? NOT a skrull.

BND isn't going away anytime soon. It's the new status quo. I'll be shocked if BHD is undone under Joe Q's watch.

Best ending would be if all the Marvel characters realize who the Skrull Leader on Earth is, and bust into the Marvel offices and reveal Joe Q as the Skrull. They take him away and orbit him into deep space. Everything instantly reverts to normal again. :P
