> Fury's been gone so long and if there was ever a setting to replace/explain Tony Stark's behavior since CW Secret Invasion might be this.
> If Stark is a Skrull, Fury's grand entrance would be perfect. A savior/leader in Cap's absence?
> I find it hard to find him not playing an inportant role in this with Captain America unable to.
My totally unsubstantiated and possibly completely wrong theory - Stark has been working with Fury (sssshhhhhhhh, very hush hush) to setup the whole Civil War and the follow up, as some way to weed out the Skrulls. Stark won't be a Skrull, 'cuz it's hard to gain crossover readers from the movie when the subject in comic form doesn't match at all. Also why I think the green color will return to the Hulk prior to the movie.
I think Fury needed to be off the board for a couple of years in order to see all the pieces and make sure he himself was not picked off and replaced. He's the master war strategist and fighter, and the Invasion is a pretty big deal that he would want to make sure he dealt with his way. He's got his eyes and ears in SHIELD (Iron Man), and in case Stark is replaced, he might have setup some sort of failsafe in Tony's armor that would indicate any sort of Skrull replacement. Oh, and you KNOW there's gonna be some big reveal where Fury is looking at a great big computer screen and it lists all the Skrulls and all the regular ol'heroes. It'll be a two page splash. I'm callin' it.
I don't know how this went down, or why (for sure), or when (Fury became aware of the Invasion), but I'm not paid to write these stories (of course, I'm not paid to make wild assumptions on forums either, but...)
