Secret Invasion Comes to The Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes

Will we see loads of Skrull infiltrations on the show?

  The Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes animated series has been loosely based on the Marvel comics. We wouldn't expect a brand new series to follow close to fifty years of comic book continuity to the letter. Throughout the current first season, there have been some surprising twists. 
If you saw the brand-new episode of The Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes this Sunday up to the end, you watched the major spoiler in the end... oh that's right: all of this article is under SPOILER ALERT!!!!    

== TEASER ==
Now that you're aware of the spoilers here, I can proceed by saying that the HYDRA's leader, Baron Von Strucker, righthand woman, Viper is a SKRULL. She was discovered by Nick Fury and Bobbi Morse (Mockingbird), at the end of the episode, in a style very similar to the way the New Avengers found out Elektra was a Skrull back in New Avengers vol.1 #36-37.  

If you've been following the animated series, you know the writers have inspired themselves in recent storylines, as seen in the first couple episodes, adapting the New Avengers origin into the Avengers' in the cartoon, with the mass supervillain breakout.  
Now the inspiration comes from the Secret Invasion story arc by Brian Michael Bendis. The extent of this event on the small screen is yet to be seen but I hope it will be as fun to follow as the amazing comics by Marvel.

I had hoped they would have done this later since this is going to throw off the order of everything after it

I suprisingly like this show.

Man this is way too early.

Posted by CrimsonInuTears

They're just addin it as a tease for now, kinda like Carol(aka Ms Marvel). It's way too early to pull the actual invasion stuff.

oh sh*t they've arrived, 
 you guys plague every other site, now this one? 
anyway, I was all expecting this show to span worlds like Asgard, time travel, Latveria, Outer Space. 
Sadly all the Avengers do is fight villains one of them could handle.  
Oh well Marvel fails again, when is Young Justice coming back??
Posted by Dark_Phoenix00x

Why cant they come up with something original?

Posted by Icon

They're setting this up. They're not rushing anything. The show has been brilliant so far, and I can't wait to see how they develop this.

Best superhero cartoon since Justice League Unlimited. Young Justice whole time I'm wondering whats Batman, Flash and Aquaman are doing.

First the Breakout, then the war with HYDRA and now the Secret Invasion. The Avengers are gonna be busy!

I thought it was early to bring in the Secret Invasion storyline, but eh, I'll get over it. Now I just want to see Bucky return as Captain America and THEN I'll be happy! ^_^

Posted by Ahmed Sherif

Maybe they just wanted to show us a glimpse of whate might happen in the future.
Posted by Mr. Dead Pool

NO, NO, NO, NO, NO!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I HATED Secret Invasion!!!!! And now its found its way into my toon's!!!!! If they were going to do any kind of story arc from the comics it should be the Inifinty Gauntlet!!!!!!!

They explained why they weren't there.
And Spectacular Spider-Man was better than Avengers, imo.

way to early for an invasion they should have waited while slowly introducing more characters oh well  I've wanted to see ultimates Kleiser in more fiction so hopefully he'll show up I doubt it but hey you never know

@Mr. Dead Pool:
Here, here. Though I lauded the return of Mockingbird (whose appearance and voice I really liked in this episode) in the story, they should try and do some earlier material, like that one where Wasp is mortally wounded by Count Nefaria and they have to go find this one scientist in the Arctic to get his help.  Either that, or the Avengers-Defenders War.

It will probably be better, and more linear then the comic Secret invasion was.

Just finished the graphic novel, man it was good. 

Posted by leokearon

I knew Secret Inavasion was going to happen especially if you spot the clues
Posted by oldgum

Is this mocking bird ... a Skrull herself? You know...

Posted by Eyz

Noooooooo...!! °___°
On another point: Will we see The Taskmaster, one of my all time favorite anti-heroes/villains??
Plus he actually started out as an Avenger villain, so...

Posted by uroboros

while I'm excited for some skrull action [would totally prefer Super Skrull to turn up]..can I point out how overtly sexual Skrull Viper was when she pulled the pin from that grenade, i sprayed coke out my nose I laughed so hard

Posted by Soldier zero

As much as I don't like the whole Secret Invasion story arc I think that having it on the Avengers might be a chance to do things right. And even if they started to hint things now I think that the main event might still be a long way from now. So far this show have done one thing right, placing subtle remarks and cameos for possible future developments (e.g. Mockingbird first appeared as the pilot for Hawkeye and Widow in the micro episodes) .

I hope not.
" It will probably be better, and more linear then the comic Secret invasion was. "

That's exactly what I hope for.

A Secret Invasion storyline in the Avengers cartoon?!!! AWESOME!! It could lead to appearences to other heroes like the X-Men or the Fantastic 4. And the whole Who do you trust thing should be brilliant!!!

Posted by Morgan4242

I hate everything about the way this cartoon is done, animation, voice acting, twists and tweeks to the storylines, but  that being said I still watch it and hope for the best because it's something I've been waiting on since 1980, an Avengers cartoon worth watching.

I think It's all going to lead into the Kree-Skrull war

Posted by sparty-dbq

Just because they're bringing in the Skrulls already doesn't mean they're jumping ahead to Secret Invasion.  The Skrulls were causing s*** a long time before then.  In fact, based on last week's episode, it's more like they're just coming up on the Kree-Skrull War.

Posted by Kid_Zombie

NICE THATS AWESOME! Got to catch up on the show

Posted by Duncan

Meh. Secret Invasion is a good way to introduce the skrulls (probably) but I'm more interested in how the cosmic cube is coming into play.

Posted by Jotham

Man, they got me with this episode. It was winding down, my mind started wandering, then they showed the Skrull and I yelled "Oh, s***!"
Good ending.

Posted by -Vigil-

Give us Civil War! Give us Civil War!

Posted by joshmightbe

Secret invasion isn't the only time the skrulls have been a problem so there are many other possibilities aside from secret invasion and they're are many more characters to be introduced in order to have SI make any sense 

Posted by Cafeterialoca

To people who want Civil War: HELL NO!
We got like 50 really cool villains to  do! DON'T MUCK IT UP OVER HEROES FIGHTING HEROES CRAP!
Also, this article is stupid.  Skrulls were not just part of Secret Invasion.

sweet cant wait

Posted by ARMIV

You think maybe we'll see Super-Skrull...?
Posted by trat73

I just want to know when Cap's going to take leadership of the Avengers. It got hinted about but I'm feeling that because of the current Ironman craze the writers will not put Cap in that possision.
Posted by goldenkey

Honestly, how do you people like the show.  I ususally just don't like Marvel animation.  Is it campy, or is it anything in the way JLA and JLA unlimited was done, and an older crowed can like it.
Posted by queenfrost_

maybe wasp will die :O

Posted by fbdarkangel

People will you all stop it with the "wasp is going to die" comments? it's a kid's show so they're not going to kill off one of the funny ones!

Posted by maxicere

The best series !!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Posted by Whitley

The Avengers series is very good. It is a nice blend of classic and new in there. I like how they have the Hulk there but mostly he is in the background.  It is in the same vein as Wolverine and the X-Men. Hopefully, this series will be around for more than 2 seasons.
Posted by LordTaronji101

Have to see it NOOOOWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Posted by ShirEPanjshir

Yep. It's confirmed. In the latest episode 26, "A Day Unlike Any Other". The episode ends with Captain America being replaced by a Skrull saying: "The invasion has begun". So I'm guessing we'll be seeing Secret Invasion coming up in the next few episodes.

Darn I love this series. First the super-villain breakout. Kang Dynasty. Ultron Imperative. Fall of Asgard. Now Secret Invasion.
