Does it?

Here's what I'm reading (and what Bendis repeated in his two interviews on the subject.)

Look at it from the POV of the skrulls. Religiously speaking, Earth is theirs. They're trying to save their race by taking it. That's a pure intent, strictly speaking.

Since the Skrull/Dire Wraith connection was pointed out a couple of times on this board, I do recall that in the pages of Rom Spaceknight, even when Strange learned of the Wraiths' presence on Earth, he still was unable to detect them with his magic. So that does set a precedent for aliens with sorcerous abilities being able to hide from him. Perhaps the regular Skrulls themselves decided to start utilizing magic.

Just a theory, mind you, and probably totally off-base, but what the heck, worth suggestiong just in case ;\-\)
