Elektra was a Skrull.
Black Bolt was a Skrull.
Dum Dum was a Skrull.
Contessa Really-Long-Name-SHIELD-Chick was a Skrull.
Ms. Marvel was a Skrull.
Hank Pym is a Skrull.
Jarvis is a Skrull.
Invisible Woman is a Skrull.
Spider-Woman is a Skrull?
After reading Secret Invasion #2, I think we can safely add Spaceship Spider-Man, Spaceship Vision and Spaceship Hawkeye to the list, with an even BIGGER question mark next to Spider-Woman’s name. I mean, check out this totally Skrully panel of her running away! Oh, and could the Spaceship Captain America be the real deal? Clint seems to think so. Wait, is that even the real Clint!?! Too soon to tell, I would say. I want to believe that Mockingbird is really who she says she is, not because I like the character, but because Clint is right… he’s had a rough year. OH! What’s up with Carol giving Stark the Skrulliest look of all time?
If the first issue was an A-, this one’s a solid C+. Why? DECOMPRESSION!!! You know what Marvel, if I’m going to shell out $3.99 for a comic, I want more pages of story not just thicker cardstock! EFF. YOU. This is just bullshit. The plot inches forward… panel by wordless panel. When I got to the end, I was wholly unsatisfied in a way I haven’t been since House of M. Bendis, why do you hate us so much? WHY?!?
The best part of the book was seeing how clearly Clint’s sentimentality is affecting the logic centers of his brain. Dude, get a grip! That’s not Cap and that’s probably not your wife. Why does Bendis torture him so? WHY?!?
And thus it was written that this shall be your cliffhanger: Lots of Super Skrulls.
ASIDE: No “Origin Stories” this week. Sorry guys, The Bill’s got to rest up for next week’s Crime Lords Extravaganza!!!
