is a skrull?

My predictions? The Wasp, if for no other reason to account for her tormenting Hank Pym all these years, and her Austen-written fling with Hawkeye, or Hawkeye, who might have died during the Kree-Skrull War, only to be replaced.

The crazy thing is that there's so many telepaths/aliens/etc running around the MU who could detect this kind of thing. Dr. Strange? Spiderman? Rom? How could the Skrulls have remained hiddent, especially en masse?

This was always my main problem with the Rom series. . . .

> 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.

I think Hawkeye was replaced at some point prior to Disassembled and the newly returned Hawkeye is the real deal.

Spider-Woman is a prime suspect given how long she was off the radar prior to her joining the NEW AVENGERS. Wasp could certainly work.

I'm guessing that Ms. Marvel's press agent, Sarah Day is a Skrull.

On the X-Men front, I'd love to see Xorneto explained away as a Skrull. Or cat-Beast! Or Azazel! And the Mystique who killed Moira MacTaggert.

This could also be an easy way to resurrect any characters who've ever died. Think about it... as long as there was no body to give it away, it could have been their Skrull doppelganger who died. They could easily bring back Banshee or any number of dead characters this way.

But here's a really out there suggestion.... Mary Jane! Revealing that Mary Jane is a Skrull and has been since before their marriage could be the way that Joe Quesada puts his final "genie" back into the bottle!

My question is...how are they mimicking skills and powers?
