No real surprises, no real movement, and certain things come out of nowhere unless you're reading the various Avengers books

This book seems like it isn't going to have the guts to be as big as promised.

Too bad, great concept

This issue did not impress me at all, and I agree that structuring on this even is crucial, and very shakey. Not to be a DC comparison, but when Johns did the Sinestro Corp, it was in two books, and a few one shots. And it was a damn solid event.

Perhaps keeping the whole thing in the two Avengers books would have been better... alas, not cheaper. And you know, it's all about the money, not necessarily the story. :wink:

Unfortunately for me, Bendis's events, and even Civil War by Millar, tend to start out with an interesting concept, start strong, meander in the middle, and end weakly.

I also agree with this, and it won't be until the last issue that realizes the truth.

About the Tony Stark is a skrull theory; I do agree with you guys, I think Stark is being fucked with but if you look at it, he's the superhero who can stop the Skrull invasion the easiest and knows the most about it. However, the other character who is almost as capable of stopping the invasion is Luke Cage and so far, we haven't seen the Skrull Queen mess with Luke. I'm hinking it might be possible that he's a skrull.

Yep. In the early New Avengers issues, Wolverine couldn't smell Jess and Luke.

I enjoyed the new issue of Secret Invasion. The Giant-Man Skrull was kicking some serious butt! :shock: :shock:

I think he might be as well, or Jessica Drew, one of them - but I think either way, whichever one it is, will decide to "stay" who they are (ala Captain Marvel) instead revert back to their "Skrullish" ways.

I agree with you. The Young Avengers and Initiative recruits didn't stand a chance against the Super-Skrull army. :shock: Hell, the Super-Skrulls would have probably given both the New and Mighty Avengers combined a run for their money.

This has been my feeling for most "event" stories for the last 6 years or so.

I was not overwhelmed by this, it was okay. Dangling plot threads are annoying me e.g. what was the final fate of Agent Brand and the S.W.O.R.D. agents trapped in that protective space goo in issue #1? I know this is hardly essential to the plot but I really fell in love with the character in Astonishing X-Men and it worries me that she is still floating about out there, somewhere, 3 issues in.
