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.

#1 - Maria Hill: She has been sketch from the beginning, but she was also significant in recommending Tony take the head position of Shield. (see below)

#2 - Jessica Jones: "Why dont you nurse your baby?" asks Wong...Because she doesnt have the correct equipment, thats why. Luke may be skrull as well, but if its only one of them, she's my pick.

#3 - If Hawkeye was a skrull, it was the one from earlier. BEFORE disassembled. Current Clint is legit.

#4 - Carol Danvers: Why did she insist on her own secret team of shield agents? She's eliminating threats. Also, why does she care about "image"? She is trying to raise her influence to better be a skrull. Expect to see some kind of a tie in with her Kree history.

#5 - Charles Xavier: He has been a skrull for quite some time....

#6 - I predict that sometime AFTER Civil War, Tony either has been replaced by a skrull, will be replaced, or at least an attempt to replace him will be made.

#7 - Dr. Doom will tie in with the skrull invasion. Either HE is a skrull, or Reed Richards is replaced by a skrull and Doom is tied into that story.

#8 - One of the new warriors from Stamford was a Skrull. May very well have been Night Thrasher.

#9 - Namor...Skrull - I wont join the war...Please lead the war for me...Invade. (SKRULL!)

#10 - Pietro. S-K-R-U-L-L.
