Plus, note that when Elekskrull was killed, she reverted to her normal appearance. Cap did not.

Benn there. Done that. Of course, that Skrull did not revert to his normal appearance after he was killed. To be honest though, at this point, I'd love for every Wolverine appearance of the past 10 years to be declared a Skrull.

> Cage and Jess both skrulls,

Makes me wonder if Baby Cage (who still doesn't have a name) is a Skrull or is she being possessed like Maya Lopez was? Her eyes were green when she was possessed too. If she's a Skrull, then how was she replaced? I doubt Baby Cage has been alone very much. Was she replaced or is she some kind of Skrull-Human hybrid? Is one of her parents a Skrull? If so, then which one?

I also wonder how this whole Skrull thing will affect Xavin in Runaways.

Bah! I'm enjoying this title a lot, especially after this issue.

Jessica must be a Skrull since she can't breast feed
There is no other reason for that moment to be in the comic

I wrote a massive essay... then the computer wonked out... sigh.

> This Realllllly has a Clone saga feeling to it.

Yes it does... but here's why you should care.

The first reaction most readers will have is likely, “big deal, they’re just Skrulls.” And this is true, the Skrulls are often seen as the “jobbers” of the universe, but then, that’s what people used to say about Annihilus.

To be clear, the Earth has been dreading a Skrull invasion on some level, secret, private or public, since 1947 when a group of Skrulls crashed near Roswell, New Mexico.

In truth, however, the Skrulls have known about earth since long before that.

Hundreds of thousands of years ago the Skrulls fought with the Kree on earths moon. Apparently the creatures of Monster Isle are of Skrullish origins. In the 1930’s, a human found a Skrull ship on Earth, but he never got the chance to tell anyone about it.

Regardless, a Skrull who landed on earth in 1947 went undetected for the next 40 years, eventually reaching the highest levels of government as a senator and no doubt considering a run for the White House. Admittedly, this was “one of the good ones,” but another crashed ship was discovered in 1952 and in 1957 Skrull agents successfully infiltrated the executive branch, taking the place of VP Richard Nixon. He was eventually stopped by 3-D Man, but in an alternate reality that no longer exists, this nearly led to an Earth-Skrull war that threatened all of reality, at least according to Immortus.

The largest established invasion of Earth by Skrulls was halted in 1986, but it took the deaths of the vast majority of the world’s super-heroes to stop them. To this day, those heroes are still officially considered missing in action.

The first publicly acknowledged contact with Skrulls came in Fantastic Four #2 when a scouting party was discovered and stopped by Reed Richards (Note: Reed previously uncovered a Skrull spy during the Lost Generation series, even if he didn't know it at the time). Although he forced the shapeshifters to assume the shape of cows, many have resurfaced over the years.

Three re-awakened and brought the Avengers into the Kree-Skrull War, another took the place of a politician before being discovered. Three others, who may or may not have been part of the initial Fantastic Four-cow situation, became involved with the Sensational Hydra incident, infiltrating the world’s largest single terrorist organization at it’s highest level before their leader’s hubris brought the plan down. No doubt he went insane from years in the bovine lifestyle and forced milking.

The milk of Skrull-cows caused disease and mutation in King’s Crossing, Vermont, and the meat of Skrull-cows permanently caused the mutation of various individuals throughout the United States. These individuals, self-dubbed the Skrull Kill Krew discovered a vast network of Skrull spies living on earth, including 3,678 living in the Pleasant Valley community. But honestly, who’s going to listen to a bunch of teenage punks?

Now, it’s true that the Kree-Skrull War, the Hyper-Wave Bomb, the Galactus Event and the Annihilation Wave have all greatly devastated the Skrull empire, but the Skrulls are still a threat.

Remember, the most feared creatures in the intergalactic local group, until very recently, were merely the unwanted offshoots of the Skrulls, and those Dire-Wraiths were responsible for thousands of human deaths on United States soil – a fact that may never have been publicly uncovered.

Also, the biggest technological problems for Earth often are Kree in origin, be that the nigh-unbeatable Sentries, the Inhumans or even the half-breeds that are among the most powerful beings in the known universe.

BUT, the Skrull have been developing their technology since the Kree were wearing fur bikinis and living in caves…. They may not seem like a threat, but there’s more to them than we know.

For example, the Hand are an ancient quasi-mystical organization that is very specialized in who they allow membership to. Encounters with Wolverine not withstanding, they are a powerful organization, powerful enough, it seems, to block the abilities of the Sorcerer Supreme for the entire dimension and nearly kill him. They would have too, had it not been for Wong’s intervention. If this group could have its most influential leader replaced by a Skrull, that means something.

Has Hydra been taken over again? What about SHIELD? What about world governments? Could you imagine a Skrull with Wakandan technology? With Terrigen Mist?

Or worse… in your own home, having replaced your brothers, your sisters, your parents, your spouse…

This revelation by itself is not that impressive, but we weren’t promised a shocking event, we were promised a revelation that would have a major impact on Marvel titles over the next year.

The New Avengers have spent the past year or so looking for a vast conspiracy connecting the problems in SHIELD, Hydra, the Raft and every other problem in their lives – this might well be it.

And Nick Fury, he’s been in hiding, only trusting a select few… but why? He’s done worse than his little “Secret War” before, and he never had to go this far underground for this long… maybe he knows something we don’t.

If Marvel is going where it looks like Marvel is going with this… this could be one fun ride.

Well, it fits her personality a) not to do something like that, and b) to be visibly upset when someone asks her about it. It could also have to do with her own insecurity about her super-powers and her not wanting to take the chance that her unstable physiology could have on her baby's health.

Wow. I never knew that much about the Skrulls aside from their abilities. This does have heavy implications for the next year of stories. I never read it but what does the recent Wolverine arc Enemy of the State have to do with this? Just something i was thinking.

I wonder who the traitor(s)is...it could very well be Cage. Either the Cage baby is a half breed or a very important Skrull character(what would that characters name be?) because Jessica seems to be oblivious to it...

Bendis has a way of getting your mind racing. I think hes brilliant.

Well, nothing, but I should point out that the Skrulls even have two main groups that are designed for taking out super-humans: Super-Skrulls that have the Fantastic Four's powers, amplified (there are two known, Kl'rt and Xavin, and several more mentioned) and Warskrulls, that have the X-Men's powers.

For a while, Wolverine was a Skrull. The Skrull Wolverine lived and fought among the X-Men and went undetected by both Jean Grey and Prof. X. He was eventually killed by the real deal, who at the time was working for Apocalypse. This was just prior to Morrison's run on the X-Men.

> I wonder who the traitor(s)is...it could very well be Cage. Either the Cage baby is a half breed or a very important Skrull character(what would that characters name be?) because Jessica seems to be oblivious to it...

If it is Cage, I highly doubt it was the father of Jess' baby. The baby, however, is likely a Skrull imposter, with the original being held safely away by the Skrulls (or even dead).

> Bendis has a way of getting your mind racing. I think hes brilliant.

He has his momments.

EDIT: I forgot, you asked which important Skrull should be the baby. To me, that should be De'lila, the coolest Skrull to only appear in a few issues.

> Apparently the creatures of Monster Isle are of Skrullish origins.

Not true. The reason the Skrulls picked up a similarity in the monsters to their own DNA was because the majority of the monsters on Monster Island are Deviant mutates, and the Skrulls are the Deviant branch of their own original race. Their devices were picking up the tampered DNA that the Celestials had messed with.

Ah, but it wasn't the Celestial trace they found, it was the Skrull-like brain patters and the ancient wall paintings that resembled those on the Skrull's homeworld. Sure, this might still involve the Celestials, but it seems Skrulls themselves were there at some point.

I'd probably say the brain patterns are directly linked to what I was referring to. As far as the paintings, it's possible they'd been there before.

Yeah Im aware of the the Super-skrulls and Xavin from the Runaways(?) Im also aware of Skrullverine.

I guess I overeacted a bit about Bendis lol.

Honestly, I just came back into comics after a 10 year hiatus. I read from 90-96'. I was strictly X-men and SPiderman so I never read much of the Avengers.

I also think that the baby is a Skrull imposter there was a sort of "oh S#!@" look on the face of the baby as if it knew what that meant. Maybe the Hand battle was a trap to destroy the New Avengers. Which further means there could be a mole on the team. I hope it aint Jessica(already done) but she did suggest that they go to the Yashida residence...

Thanks for detailing exactly why the Skrulls *should* be treated as a credible threat, as opposed to a bunch of goofy little green men who routinely get their rear ends handed to them. And glad to see someone remembers that the Dire Wraiths were Skrull offshoots, which shows the potential they have for wrecking havoc.

Oh, yeah... nice to see a link to the Dire Wraiths bio I wrote for the "Bring On The Bad Guys" website many moons ago \:\-D

The biggest problem that I have with storyline is that the Skrulls don't (or shouldn't) have the resources to waste on this infiltration. They've lost way too much. Not to mention that their age old enemy the Kree are in much better shape than they are and the survivors of the Annihilation are still around. They have more important things to worry about than Earth.

Also, doesn't Shield or Iron Man or Reed Richards have tech that can detect Skrulls now? After all the times the Skrulls have infiltrated (including the recently one in CW), they should've came up with some.

They would have too, had it not been for Wong’s intervention. If this group could have its most influential leader replaced by a Skrull, that means something.

Honestly, it's a mistake to believe that anything Annihilus recently did would have that much affect on them. A civilization like theirs wouldn't be so dependent on a central authority. Plus, it's likely that the Skrulls that have been invading Earth (for decades or longer) were spared the Annihilation.

Especially now, more than ever before, there is nothing more important for them to worry about than Earth.

Actually, yes. And this is one of the things that throws a wrench into this. There are "Skrull detectors."

True, but just as we improve our technology on a daily basis, they could be doing the same.
