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.

Colossus (They never really explained things to a point where I bought it, which is saying a lot considering I buy the fact that he's a guy with metal skin).

Green Goblin (His death reversal was probably one of the worst ever because it undid a classic story, and it would help to explain (though not forgive) the goblin twin story since it could be argued she was hypnotized... Granted, he'd have had to be a Skrull for a looooong time, but whatever undoes that story works for me!)

Hawkeye is NOT a Skrull. There's no way, not just because of the spell Strange cast, but Bendis won't be making that mistake again... You don't mess with Hawkeye!

I have to say, in my book this is the first and only decent thing to happen to "The Avengers" since Bendis took over.
