Besides, we don't KNOW that it was the Illuminati (including Tony and Reed) that allowed the skrulls to become undetectable, not for certain.
> > > Cap only started resisting the SHRA violently when the supporters tried to arrest him for a hypothetical statement during a conversation. And yes, we do KNOW that it was the Illuminati that allowed the Skrulls to become undetectable. Bendis devoted an entire issue of New Avengers to explaining it.
> > They didnt allow them to become undetectable at all...thats a silly argument. Heroes get captured ALL the time...this time the skrulls did some delving afterwards...you cant blame them for being caught...they went on a mission that didnt go as planned...gee has that ever happened in anything but 99% of the comics we read?
> > Those stupid X-Men...they tried to stop a demon invasion but it was tougher then they though...they helping the skrulls as well?
> I might be able to accept this argument if Tony hadn't blamed the Stanford debacle on the Warriors and used this to drum up support for the SHRA. In any case, there was no need to attack the Skrulls. It just made things worse.
He didnt blame it on the Warriors. He said years ago that some well meaning group thats out there will make a mistake and the govt. will go nuts and the way heroes and the world work will forever be changed after. He wanted to get the heroes together for training before this happened. He was ignored and years later this happens and the govt. is out for blood. To prevent the worst from happening he decides to work from the inside and reign it in. There is nothing wrong with this concept and he wasnt drumming up support for SHRA...he tried to stop it...after this nothing was going to stop it...so instead he puts himself in place to mitigate it as much as he can...this is a very valid approach that most people just seem to ignore.
