I remember hearing about how Norman Osborn offered to reveal who was actually behind the Stamford explosion involving the New Warriors and Nitro.
Was this ever followed up on, or has it been dropped?
Wasn't it hinted that there was some larger force pulling the strings behind all the superhero fighting?
Or has all this been my imagination?
I can see the Mad Thinker pulling something like this off, since his computer-like brain would be able to accurately balance all the different variables involved, how the different players in the drama would react, and how to arrange matters properly so everything works out the way he plans.
Maybe he's the one exploiting the Skrulls...
I believe it's going to turn out that the Skrulls are in some way behind the scenes in what went down during CIVIL WAR, along with the Raft Breakout, SECRET WAR and other stuff.
