      It really bugged me when Hawkeye went after Osborn. One, because the character has always been against killing, to a fault even. And two, because they completely ignored his history with Moonstone.

    And for abit there he seemed hellbent on hunting down every skrull on Earth and skinning them alive on sight.

    It's just not Hawkeye. Maybe he's a Doombot too.

    It was disturbing to me how Marvel heroes were shown ripping Skrulls to shreds during the invasion. Punching through skulls and whatnot. Sure, our home was being attacked, but that has happened a BUNCH of times in Marvel history. The only difference with this one is that it was dragged out forever and crossed over into all the titles.

    As far as there being an alien invasion that humanity had to stop, well, that's not all that usual by comics standards. It's just not.

    We've been shown quite a few Skrull characters over the years, with them being thinking feeling people, some of whom we like. Xavin. Lyja. Half of Hulkling. Jazinda. Even the Super-Skrull has been an okay guy here and there.

    So why was it okay to act like the Skrull race weren't people? I dearly loved the Initiative comic, but there was one panel where the Skrull Kill Crew throws a Skrull head on a grill to eat it.

    And Cage was complicit with Venom torturing and eating several, though admittedly, baby-Cage had been kidnapped.

      Further explanation does seem warranted (or main title collaboration). Do you or anyone have the page # (or panel scan) of the moment the 'Doombot sex reveal' was given in Crusade?

    If I'm doing this right, it should upload.

Oh, okay. That. Thanks for reminding me with that scan!

It may or may not be true. It obviously is now until some other writer/story says otherwise. And it may have happened before or after Hawkeye's and/or Beast's meeting with her. Though by the comedy bit, readers are led to believe the switch was made before each of their meetings. Still, the exposition feels a bit too convenient at face value. Although, it would make for easy explanation for Auntie Agatha. Curious OTTOMH, have we ever seen a Doombot in anyone's image other than Doom's (or drone soldier) before - let alone what must have been an upgrade with sexually appealing synthetic flesh that he would dabble? Uh oh, look out Reed, you better have a boudoir scanning device before your snuggle with Sue. And make sure Clint can borrow it before he takes Spider-Woman to dinner and breakfast.

Or there's more to the story (still long overdue).
