Honestly, I'd prefer it if they didn't involve the X-Men in this. They've been through (and are going through) enough. Also, Whedon doesn't have a team anymore (unless you count the Runaways, who already have a Skrull). By the time this story even gears up, his run will be a distant memory (for those who even choose to remember it).

Frankly, I'd kiss JoeyQ's stanky feet if they said Wolverine has been a Skrull since at least the last Skrullverine. Everything he's done since has been utter crap.

You mean Miriam Sharpe, and no, I don't think it would necessarily change the meaning of Civil War. Bendis dropped the line about Extremis maybe being started by the Skrull, which would make all of Tony's actions since suspect. Regardless of whether or not that turns out to be true, Miriam Sharpe's no different. I really doubt they will make Tony a Skrull, but I can see him being manipulated by Skrulls.

True, even if it is just making excuses for bad writing. I'd really hope they not use such tripe in this story.
> I doubt any of the Thunderbolts have been replaced.
I don't think we can rule them out. Penance could very well be a Skrull. Oddly survived Stamford. Acting abnormally. Hmm... how Skrully.
