Yes, and note they didn't try to take over during THAT time, because of the fragmentary nature of the heroes, ONLY after the SHRA was in force.
>as far as the effectiveness of the act itself...hell it was said in Civil War itself that crime had gone down like 40% or some number...
Have you noticed any particualr drop in villainous activity in the MU? Can't say that I have.
>there are now teams every where in the country and not just NY,
Yes, and that means there's a Skrull agent within each group of heroes. They might have been better positioned to take over NY before, now they're better positioned to take over the COUNTRY!
>and it doesn't just have to do with super villains but when people just need help...they have a genuine registered hero there to help them...It is because of the SHRA all the eggs are not in one place.
I think you're misreading my point. The SHRA regulation has created an monolithic infrastructure for heroic activity which never existed before. By infiltrating that infrastructure, the Skrulls are in a vastly better position to strike than the pre-SHRA set up would allow, since it provides them with a framework for control, communication, and intel undreamed of before the SHRA.
Look at it this way. In the past, if the Skrulls wanted to invade, the would have to fight the Avengers, then they would still have to attack the Defenders separately, because there was no correllation between the two teams, and the Fantastic Four, and the X-Men etc... A war on multiple fronts, each with their own backup plans, intel and technology to rely on.
Now the lucky Skrulls can, in one fell swoop, disable the internal communications which ALL these teams rely on, and by infiltrating the core, already have agents in those teams, who are in much better positions to share intel and communications with each other.
