Check it out:


He lays some groundwork and speculation for the next big event coming up. I'm not the biggest supporter of Bendis but at least it will have the heroes fighting against villians!!! I'm actually getting excited for this. Plus it would give us a chance to have a more "classic" team of Avengers taking on the invasion now that Thor is back...we're still missing Cap though....

-bigtime out.

I admit, I have not been a fan of most of the things that have taken place in New Avengers. That said, I like the idea that the Skrulls are being portrayed as a credible, serious menace. For a group of highly advanced aliens with shape-shifting abilities who control a vast interstellar empire, the Skrulls are all too often portrayed as incompetent losers. It would be nice to see them return to the status of a genuine threat against Earth.

Aside from Mark Waid's run on Captain America, and some stuff Chris Claremont did in the X-Men circa 1990 with the "Warskrulls," I don't think the Skrull infiltration paranoia angle has been utilized effectively in, well, decades, probably not since the original Kree/Skrull War, which was so long before my time I never had an opportunity to read it until it finally got the TPB treatment several years ago.
