I can not believe the intricacy of this story. Every issue that comes from the secret invasion reveals more of marvel history and continuity that is wrapped up in this arch. I just happened to go back this weekend and reread the beginning of the new avengers series that involved the savage land stuff that came into play this issue and that it was the skrulls that were mining the vibranium. I was like “of course it was them”. It’s great that Ka Zar and the savage land crew have even been playing a part in this it. Marvel really is including all of its’ universe. They leave us with a great cliff hanger as Captain America busts through the trees ready to take out the savage landers. Now, if Cap is a Skrull, of course he wants to take out Ka Zar, but he’s also been vouched for. Who knows.
This is the first of a three part series and actually pretty important to the series. I’m surprised that Marvel didn’t hype this a little more and that we haven’t seen any of this stuff in the other books. It made a bit clearer the fact that the skrulls leading this invasion are members of an extreme religious faction and not necessarily representative of all skrulls. It also brought back, as readers of the young avengers will remember that Hulkling is supposedly the savior of the skrull race. It is being alluded to that saving the skrull race may just mean stopping their invasion of earth and removing the extremists from power. It’s pretty cool stuff. The only thing I didn’t like was the art it was cartoony and childish and just not appealing. That said the writing was great and the impact of the story makes it worth picking up.

This book takes a pretty big step back in the time line. It takes place on the day of the invasion. It follows the character of the crusader who is a skrull that has chosen to betray his people and live his life as a human. It is an interesting back story for the character and a pretty compelling look at the decision of where to put his loyalty but like most of the Secret Invasion tie ins it is pretty insignificant. They also make it look in the end of the book that the earthlings are starting to win the fight when we know from the other books that the opposite was true and Nick Fury had to show up and get a bunch of people out of there to regroup. The only cross over that I’ve found to be worth while and really necessary to the story is the New Avengers book because it actually has a unique story that is moving forward. I did enjoy the Run Aways/Young Avengers book but it is not essential to the story. If you’re into the initiative and the characters of that story then you’ll probably enjoy this one but if not it can definitely stay on the shelf.

This is one of the spin off mini’s, and while I’m usually not into the extras I got this one because we rarely get to see the Inhumans in a featured role and they are an interesting people. The method of story telling in this book is fantastic. By focusing on Karnak, whose ability it is to sense weakness, it also showcases the strength of the Inhumans. Their greatest strength is their family and the faltering of that bond is their greatest weakness. This of course plays right into the Skrull’s attack which is to create mistrust and doubt so their attack strikes deep when they find that the greatest of all, Blackbolt was a Skrull. At the end of this issue all hell brakes loose as the Skrulls reveal themselves in a full on frontal assault so you know there is some great action to come. The fate of Blackbolt is a great twist and I’m excited to see how he’s going to get out of it. Is this book a must read? Not really. If you can’t get enough of the Skrulls or have been dying for more Inhumans than you’ll really like this one. Distributed by Tubemogul.

Wow this was a good issue. So this issue has been going back to give us insight on what the Skrulls are doing and how they managed to do it. This issue tells us where it all began. It starts out with an illuminati meeting skrull made clones, which makes me wonder if any of the illuminati series was actually the earth heroes or if it was just clones, and one of the Skrulls realized that Reed Richards alone held the key to the human’s destruction. This makes a couple of things very clear. One, why the skrulls kept Reed alive after capturing him and why they needed to get into his brain so badly in the last issue of the Secret Invasion Title. They had the formula but didn’t truly understand it. It also explains why he was able to figure out how they were disguising themselves and make the weapon that revealed them. He was simply undoing his own work. What’s most intriguing however is at the end when it says next time “house of M” what role did the skrulls play in that? It’s going to be crazy.

This is the first of these invasion titles that I really liked. Sure it’s been interesting to see how everyone that has been replaced was captured but it’s not really necessary and they have been dragged out way to long. This one however gives us a glimpse of what it’s been like for the skrulls that have put into the human bodies. They have been fused with their memories and life experiences and that has to have some effect on them. Can you imagine sharing a brain with your enemies and still trying to maintain the hatred that is necessary to want to exterminate them? They say that understanding is the path to peace and there be no quicker way to understanding than living as your enemy and seeing the world through their eyes and mind. Hank Pym has always been a strange character. He’s smart but definitely on the bottom of the Genius totem pole in the marvel universe. In an attempt to prove himself he created one of the greatest avengers villains in ultron, and he beat his wife. He’s not that great of a hero and deep down he knows it. It is no surprise that these feelings of doubt and fear would get into the Skrull Hank Pym as well. You almost feel sorry for the guy because he had some very valid points and he’s probably right. It is a great read and there is an awesome battle to end the story. Check this one out it also reads really well on its own if you haven’t been following the invasion. Distributed by Tubemogul.

This limited series is definitely going on the pass list. I got it mostly because of Jackpot on the cover. I loved the addition of her to Spiderman’s world and they really left it on a wide open note. I was hoping to get a bit more about her but it doesn’t look like that is going to be the case. It’s just a fight between a sinister 6 super Skrull and the Spidey supporting cast. Not very interesting and with secret invasion already plunging so deep into the wallet it’s not worth it. Let this one go you don’t need it. Distributed by Tubemogul.

So this book was just as useless and irrelevant as last week’s Mighty Avengers book but at least this was more interesting. The one thing that I have liked most of all about this series was how deep the story went into marvel continuity so I do appreciate this story but think that it belonged somewhere else. I did enjoy seeing how the skrulls dealt with the House of M but I think Marvel is doing itself and its readers a disservice by making so many Secret Invasion tie ins with out them relating to the story itself. We don’t need all of this. The whole secret invasion story should have been told within the two avengers titles and this stuff should have been made available in outside stories. They’ve drawn it out too long and not had enough payoff outside of the core story. I’m just ready for this story to be over and see how everyone deals with getting back to some sense of normalcy.

Watch the first trailer for Captain Marvel, Marvel’s next big film watch in Ultra HD here;
The first trailer for the next installment of Marvel’s cinematic universe is here. The first look at Captain Marvel arrived this morning on Good Morning America.
There’s a lot of anticipation for this movie after the end of this summer’s Avengers: Infinity War. (Spoilers for the two of you who haven’t seen the movie yet) During that film’s end credits scene, we saw Nick Fury send out a message via a pager before he dissolves into dust. Before the scene ends, we get a glimpse of the screen, featuring Captain Marvel’s trademark logo. Clearly, her origin story is going to play a big part in what’s to come in the next Avengers film.
Earlier this month, Entertainment Weekly ran a big feature on the film, officially showing off Carol Danvers (played by Brie Larson) in her costume for the first time. The feature showed off some new details about the film, explaining that Danvers will already have her powers — this won’t be an origin story, and that she’s left Earth to join a team known as Starforce, led by a character played by Jude Law. The feature also confirms that she’ll run into Lee Pace’s Ronan — whom we first met in Guardians of the Galaxy — and that the Skrulls, shape-shifting aliens who have long been a classic villain in Marvel’s comics. The 1990s-set film will also feature a younger Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) and Agent Coulson (Clark Gregg), as well as Danvers’ time as a pilot for the US Air Force.
Captain Marvel will hit theaters on March 8th, 2019.
Marvel Studios has unveiled the first full trailer for the MCU’s upcoming and highly anticipated installment, Captain Marvel. The 1990s-set film serves as Marvel Studios’ first prequel, as well as its first superhero movie with a female lead as Oscar-winner Brie Larson plays Carol Danvers, a pilot with superhuman powers who gets caught up in the middle of a galactic war betwee
