> The Illuminati failed to prevent Secret Wars 2 by telling the Beyonder to leave Earth alone, and haven't been "inserted" into any other past storylines at all, at least so far.
I assumed they eluded to them doing more. Musta misunderstood posts on the series. Only ones I ever actually bought were the first of the original series and last of the.. uh.. er..last.
> I tend to think that the reason this is happening Right Here Right Now has less to do with anything humans have done to Skrulls, and more to do with Annihilus' forces crushing the Skrull empire into the dirt.
It seemed that when the first Annihilation was coming out Bendis and Co had no idea what it was all about, I remember the editor for Annihilation (forget his name) posting regularly on another board (very nice fellow, handled negativity really well)and THEY didn't know what was going on in the Avengers/regular books and pretty much vice-versa. The nod then was there was no coordination between the two and Bendis' Skrull plot had been conceived completely separate from Annihilation. They really should, if they have not, tie the two together, now. If Annihilation hadn't been such a huge success they'd probably ignore it (Reed ran into Super Skrull when it all started and never seemed to care a bit that someone from the Negative Zone was attacking the universe). But as you say, it puts the Skrulls in a desperate situation and gives a lot more purpose to them. Sometimes the fans do a better job of justifying stuff than the writers. Heck, WITHOUT the Illuminati it could come to this, one Skrull agent could gather the genetic materials or whatever it was they nabbed from the Illins.

> Well, yeah, clearly The Devil is less-worse than smoking, or marriage. Shouldn't you be picking on "heroes" who think it's OK to make deals with The Devil, over supergeniuses trying to do what's best for the world?
Nah, I only like picking on the real people in my sigs I still Think Pete needs to burn in Heck for what he decided, and Reed and Stark need to get force fed some humble pie. Actually it looks like McDuffie baked some up for his last issue of FF coming out next week.
