Spoiler Warning for New Avengers #31 Spoiler Warning
So Elektra's a Skrull, huh? And it looks like that's just the tip of the iceberg. Frankly, I wouldn't mind seeing this development used to clean up a few more stupid resurrections*. Skrulls have been trying to discredit Earth's heroes since their first appearance in Fantastic Four #2, but I don't think I've ever seen them attempt a full-scale infiltration. And why not? Aren't the Skrulls a sneaky, conquest-minded bunch currently lacking a homeworld? I've already heard cries of backpedaling, and how this is going to be Marvel's "Superboy punch", and while it would be a cop-out to say that Civil War was all the Skrull's fault, I don't get the impression that things are headed that way at all. More like they wormed their way in, fanned the wrong flames and put the wrong words in the wrong ears at the wrong time, all to soften Earth's heroes up for the upcoming invasion. The Skrulls have never been used to great effect in the past, so I'm definitely interested in where this is going.
