> While I hate the event, I love the universe and I'm still able to follow the line, so I've got my theories. Who do you think are Skrulls?


Lindy, Sentry's wife - The whole dying and coming back thing she's done twice now? It's a little suspicious. But it is possible there's something going on there with Sentry's powers. Still, it's kinda hard to believe the Skrulls wouldn't want some kind of leash on Sentry. Manipulating him through his wife would be a good way of controlling him.

Jessica Jones - I say the baby is fully human, and Jessica was replaced sometime between giving birth and accepting Luke's proposal. The next best thing to replacing Luke is being able to control him by having his baby hostage. And now that she's in Avengers Tower, he can't do a thing about it when/if he finds out the truth besides try to convince people she's the Skrull and not him.

Namor - I say Black Bolt wasn't the member of the Illuminati replaced years ago. It was Namor. Atlantis has been scattered in sleeper cells all over the world, meaning he can still give them commands but it would probably be very difficult for any of the heroes to find and convince them not to listen because he's a Skrull.

Wasp - I have no big theory here. Just out of the Mighty Avengers lineup, I see her as the most likely candidate. I doubt Tony, Sentry, Carol or Ares are Skrulls. If Simon's an energy being like he pointed out he was in a recent issue, probably not a Skrull. Natasha's expressed knowing too many intimate secrets over in Cap's book to be a Skrull. That kinda singles out Jan.

Nightcrawler - The X-Skrull who attacked the Illuminati looked like he had the powers of Colossus, Nightcrawler, Wolverine and Cyclops. Colossus' return was a little too elaborate for a Skrull hoax. Being in constant contact with more than one telepath, Cyclops is probably too risky to try. I just doubt it's Wolverine. So that leaves Nightcrawler, who I can't think of any reason he couldn't easily be a Skrull.

Those are the picks I'm going with right now.

Possible, but I'm hoping against it--she's Sentry's only supporting cast member. I'm also thinking Sentry has some sort of healing power.

If that was true, though, why go against them on two seperate occasions? Both the Hulk situation and Civil War.

Also her big change in attitude regarding Hank Pym between Kurt Busiek's Avengers run and present--though it seemed to start during Chuck Austin's run. She's also lost quite a bit of maturity--more like what the casual observer would assume how she acted. She's my vote for Skrull double-agent.

> Nightcrawler - The X-Skrull who attacked the Illuminati looked like he had the powers of Colossus, Nightcrawler, Wolverine and Cyclops.

Eh, I'm still thinking/hoping it's Emma Frost, based on her personality-change in recent years and the fact that she's practically gained complete control of the X-Men away from the founders. Although, if the X-Skrull is a hint, I would go with Rogue, who's shown the ability to wield multiple borrowed powers in the past.
