As you can probably tell by now I was a person who read Marvel comics more than comics published by any other company.But I have become aware that Marvel is bent on destroying everything I liked about their comics..starting with the characters.The thing I liked most about Marvel more than any other company is the character roster but now the way Marvel has been abusing the characters they create is starting to piss me off.This isn't something I just noticed either..the list of characters I call favorites grows shorter and shorter and some of the people on the list aren't dead but they may as well be because they aren't doing sh#t.Let's take a look at what Marvel has done shall we.... 1.Captain America-Killed by Crossbones & Sharon Carter 2.Daredevil-cut out of all Marvel Major events 3.Jubilee\Wondra-she lost her powers due to M-Day,joined the New Warriors and then it was cancelled after 20 issues 4.Silver Sable-hasn't been seen since 2006 5.Arana-hasn't been seen since before Secret Invasion 6.Echo-hasn't been seen since the last issue of Secret Invasion 7.Black Panther-was severely injured so his place could be taken by someone nobody knows 8.Dr.Strange-sucked at Sorcerer Supreme since becoming a New Avenger,had his hand broken by Hulk and can't fix them,got owned by the Hood,giving up SS status 9.Ms.Marvel-possibly dead and comic being taken over 10.Tarantula-Hasn't been seen since 2006 11.Vance Astro\Major Victory-The only veteran on the Guardians of Galaxy but is second in command to a f#ckin Raccoon 12.Thor Girl-turned out to be a skrull,real body was never recovered 13.Sentry-severely depowered,made to look like a punk on every occassion,Missed most of Secret Invasion because he was scared of a fake Void 14.Toxin-hasn't been seen since...well I don't even know.He was supposed to be in the Initiative and didn't appear once 15.Iron Man-had to destroy pretty much everything he's ever done,no company,no longer leading an Avengers team,blamed for Janet Van Dyne's death 16.Misty Knight-was the leader of the Heroes for Hire,the team was disbanded and now she only appears in Iron Fist which is rumored to be getting cancelled 17.Colleen Wing-goes were ever Misty goes but doesn't have a home comic in which she will appear in every issue 18.Hardball-turned out to be working for Hydra 19.Humbug-Killed by the Brood and Shang Chi 20.Namorita-Killed by Nitro 21.Spider-Man-retconned the sh#t out of him,made him weaker,took his wife 22.Arachne-hasn't been seen since Omega Flight disbanded 23.Jack of Hearts-Killed during Disassembled 24.Lionheart-missing 25.Firestar-forced into retirement because of Civil War 26.She-Hulk-book getting cancelled or is cancelled 27.Guardian-Killed by the Collecting 28.Kitty Pryde-possibly Dead 29.Meggan-M.I.A 30.Alex Wilder-Dead 31.The New Warriors-book cancelled 32.Heroes for Hire-book cancelled 33.Darkstar-Killed by Fantomex 34.Boom Boom-Dead 35.Squirrel Girl-In the Initiative but barely seen 36.Quicksilver-hasn't done much of anything in quite a while,body taken over by Chthon 37.Night Thrasher-Killed by Nitro 38.Callisto-mutated into something with snake-arms 39.Crusader-killed by 3-D Man 40.The Wasp-killed in Secret Invasion 41.Gambit-hasn't done much in quite some time 42.Tigra-got her ass kicked by the Hood in his gang,isn't an actual Avenger and hasn't been for some time,pregnant by a skrull 43.Captain Universe-Killed in Annihilation 44.Tiger Tyger-rarely seen throughout her existence.Finally gets some spotlight in an Iron Man annual and then never seen again. 45.The Order-not doing anything.... 46.Armory-scared by Trauma and accidently killed MVP so she was decommissioned 47.Gadget-killed by Paragon 48.Pulsar-hasn't really done much since Nextwave 50.Elsa Bloodstone-hasn't done much since Nextwave 51.Sharon Ventura-was Ms.Marvel...and now she's She-Thing..bad transiition 52.Songbird-kicked out of the Thunderbolts,wasn't allowed to be a Dark Avenger,has no team 53.Wolverine-comics being taken over my his much lamer son,Origins comic used to promote Deadpool,First class comic is completely worthless
Now..the books I am reading currently are..New Avengers,Iron Man,Incredible Hercules and Daredevil.I don't know what else to read.Everything else has been disappointing to me.Dark Reign doesn't seem to be bringing me what I thought.I was anxious for Dark Reign because it seemed like Secret Invasion was a set up for Dark Reign to push out some better storylines but it seems that all they are doing is taking stuff..getting rid of it and then putting something else in it's place.I was reading Ms.Marvel..she's one of my favorite characters.They took her out and put Moonstone is.I don't give a damn about Moonstone.I never liked Moonstone.Since I first saw her in classic Thunderbolts I didn't like her.When she joined the new team with Norman as the figurehead..I knew she would be a problem.She was the worst leader of any team I have ever seen in my life.All these powerful members and they can't even take street levelers.I was reading Wolverine..the Old Man Logan story was great and now when that's done they are doing "Dark Wolverine"...I feel the same about Daken as I do about Moonstone.Basically before I ramble on to long...what I am saying is i'm no longer excited for Dark Reign I see what Marvel does in major event situations and what that is,is throw characters down the crapper for some mediocre storyline.I wasn't satisfied by Secret Invasion at all.I read it but there were so many cop-outs.There wasn't one skrull reveal that was shocking to me.I mean the battles were good but that's about it.
Ok..I did one for Secret Invasion so I will do one for Dark Reign..this is basically where I explain what I think will happen based on the clues I have been given. What is Dark Reign? Considering what is going on right now and what other major events have gone down in the last 6 years It could be one of these choices.
A.The registration act comes in to play again..Secret Invasion is over so now Iron Man & his Mighty Avengers\Initiative still have to enforce the law.According to Dan Slott..something big will be happening with the registration act in Dark Reign.I don't know what it is but I am excited.So it's possible that with the heroes still bickering with each other..it will give the villains the time to strengthen up and try and take over the Marvel Universe.There will be a Dark Illuminati.Maybe they were created for the sole purpose of taking out the biggest heroes in Marvel...leaving everyone else with no directions.
B.The Skrulls win Secret Invasion.As bad as the skrulls are getting owned there is still a chance for them to win.A conversation between skrulls went on where it was said that if Janet was a skrull than they win and in Secret Invasion #7...at the end Wasp looked as if she was emitting some type of dark energy or getting ready to explode.Also there is a cover shown where the Avengers are reaching for her as if something happens to her.So Dark Reign could be the superheroes and earth forced to live under the REIGN of the skrull empire.
What will be the conclusion of Secret Invasion? Well either the skrulls win or they don't.It's definitely a possibility that they do but I doubt they will.The thing is this event is still missing something..a huge moment,a big bang.Avengers:Dissassembled ended with the death's of several Avengers,House of M ended with the shortening or the mutant population,Civil War ended with Cap's death,so what will SI's big bang be?
A.Well alot of people though Iron Man would die but his comic is so far passed SI and he's still alive. B.People also though it would be the end of the registration act because the heroes are working together but if you have been reading Iron Man you would know that's not it either. C.My guess is that something will happen involving Sentry and he will be the difference maker to save them all.Remember we haven't seen him since Secret Invasion #1 when he was scared off my the skrull vision.We saw him come back as what looked like the Void but you never know with the Sentry.
Who is the Evil Illuminati? A.Well there is a very blury picture of who they are all are so let's start with what we know. 1.The Original Illuminati is Iron Man,Mr.Fantastic,Professor X,Dr.Strange,Namor,Blackbolt,and Black Panther was asked to be a member but he declined. B.The characters in the Evil Illuminati match up with the people in the original 1.Dr.Doom\Mr.Fantastic 2.Professor X\Emma Frost 3.Namor\Namor 4.The Hood\Dr.Strange 5.Loki\Blackbolt C.That only leaves Iron Man and the last person the picture who we can't make out..so Who could it be? 1.Maybe Norman Osborn? He's a villain who worked under Tony and had to listen to whatever he said,no matter how ridiculous and is good with tech. 2.Ezekiel Stane? Iron Man not only showed him why he's Marvel's tech guy but took of his armor and proceeded to kick his ass. 3.Spymaster? He is one of Iron Man's oldest villains and Iron Man almost killed him twice. 4.Maybe a new Iron Man villain..who knows?
Who are the Dark Avengers? -There are 5 heroes seeming to be...Iron Man,Ms.Marvel,Hawkeye,Wolverine,& Venom
A.Iron Man -Well we know from the solicitations that his name is the Iron Patriot -The artist of the picture is Deodoto Jr.The same artist as the Thunderbolts so they could be Thunderbolts in disguise -There is a lightning bolt in the background. -Norman Osborn would be the likely choice considering he is the leader of the the Thunderbolts.He is also good with the use of tech. -Citizen V who was once the leader of the Thunderbolts is also a likely choice because of his leadership and American orientation. -Lastly it could be Mach IV.He wears American colors and he has stolen alot of Iron Man's tech and used it so he would be familiar with it. B.Ms.Marvel -Since Ms.Marvel isn't confirmed as a Mighty or New Avenger it could be her. -Ms.Marvel gave Ultra Girl the costume seen in the picture but her hair was cut shorter to resemble classic Ms.Marvel -Moonstone has the length of hair for it the right color and she was a Thunderbolt. C.Hawkeye -It could be Swordsman because his costume is extremely similar to Hawkeye's and they were both Thunderbolt's. -It could be Hawkeye (Clint Barton) and Maya could have gone back to being Echo. -Taskmaster has a bow and is using Hawkeye's skills for it that he stole with his reflexes. -Bullseye is a Thunderbolt and has the marksmanship. D.Wolverine -He looks to either be a tall,slender male or a female. -He could be Daken because he is the only Wolverine clone with 3 claws in up top but his 3 comes out of his wrist so the placement is off. -X-23 is his female clone but her 3rd claws are in her feet. -No Thunderbolts are similar to Wolverine...but Bullseye was in Weapon X..I doubt it's him though. E.Venom -We haven't seen Toxin at all and he was supposed to be on the Initiative -Eddie Brock is Anti-Venom and Gargan is current Venom..who knows what will happen between them. -Maybe Vincent Gonzales...he hates Spider-Man and it would be epic for him to find out that it's Parker.
What will happen to the Avengers?
Mighty Avengers -Well the new roster is Iron Man,The Vision,Hercules A Hulk (maybe Rulk or Green Hulk),Hercules,Jocasta,Scarlet Witch and two un-identified characters. -Dan Slott mentioned wanting to use Wonder Man and Beast in some issues so that leads me to believe Wonder Man won't be on the team again..but where does he go? -Did Ms.Marvel lose her powers? In her last comic she didn't user her powers at all and she cut here mother off when she asked her if she still had them. -What about Sentry,Black Widow,and the Wasp? Do they die? Does the Wasp Die? Will they ever find the real Hank Pym & Jessica Drew? I'm guessing Black Widow will being going over to New Avengers because Cap is on the team and she's his ummmm sextoy or girlfriend I guess.So what about Sentry? I can't even begin to imagine what will happen to him. -The one new member looks lIke Noh-Varr..maybe he will be the new Captain Marvel in Cap's death.
Ok.I have some theories on who I think is a skrull based on the hints and clues I have seen or at least I think I have seen.

SKRULL REPLACEMENTS (Update 8/12/08) Blackbolt Elektra Revolutionary Cobalt Man Cyclone Captain Marvel Crusader Valentina Allegra de Fontaine Hank Pym Sue Storm Irvin Griffin Spider-Woman Magnitude Longshot Kirby\Kerberos Brother Voodoo
SKRULL COPIES & FUSIONS Reed Richards Daredevil Spider-Man Sue Storm Echo Colossus\Nightcrawler\Wolverine\Human Torch Thor Ms.Marvel The Vision\The Void\Blackbolt\Iron Man\Ant-Man Wolverine\Ultron\Iron Man Nova Captain America\Iron Man Thor\Blackbolt\Multiple Man
SKRULL SUSPECTS Spider-Woman\Jessica Drew -Either the Skrull Princess saying that she wants to take part in the Invasion and pointing out Jessica as the person she wants to copy is an indication that she is a skrull not to mention all the time the New Avengers thought she was anyway or she's not a skrull because...
A.There is too much inforamtion on her being a skrull and Marvel wouldn't get anything out of just revealing her,especially seeing as how they gave little or no hints about the other people who were revealed. B.Nick Fury Trusts her. C.Jessica brought Iron Man,Elektra's skrull carcass after she was killed.So if she was a skrull she would have known that Blackbolt was a skrull and was in the Illuminati.Knowing Iron Man would discuss the situation with the Illuminati and Mighty Avengers...she wouldn't have taken the body to Tony...in fact,she wouldn't have been the one to alert him at all because then more people would know there was skrulls out there and then would be looking for them She could also be a skrull because how do we know Nick Fury knows if she is a skrull or not but he did say he had been watching her for quite sometime.And as far as all the information we have been given...we could either assume it's because Marvel is just giving this one away or because Marvel wants us to believe it's not that easy and when we doubt she's a skrull because we've been given so much info on it...she really is. D.First she supposedly kills Echo,then tells Tony that he's a skrull and gives him this story of how he's a skull and he doesn't know it.It is possible that she thinks Iron Man is a skrull and is trying to trick him to get it out..but all signs are leading to her being a skrull (Updated 6/12/08) E.We were pretty much just shown the Queen Veranke turning into Jessica Drew...i'm keeping the hope alive though (Updated 7/7/08)
Stephen Strange\Dr.Strange -He is sucking hard at being Sorcerer Supreme. A.Unable to hold simple spells for long periods of time. B.Unable to fix his hands after Hulk broke them although he's already done it before. C.People seeing right through his spells. He may not be a skrull though because during the fight with the Hand he was stabbed in the stomach.That would have killed a skrull but not Dr.Strange.
Tony StarkI\ron Man
-He's the most unlikely and the most likely as well.
A.Civil War..killed off alot of characters,the registration act would allow him to keep tabs on everyone as well. B.Luke Cage has been saying he's a skrull since he found out Elektra was one. C.He's been making some weird happy ass faces...especially in Mighty Avengers when he tells Jarvis that he trusts him. D.Bendis and Quesada said Iron Man isn't a skrull but maybe they were just saying that to throw us off. I don't think Iron Man is a skrull mainly because the Editor and Chief and Bendis who has been writing New Avengers for a while said he's not.Maybe this is the one thing we can count on being true.Also...Iron Man has had some injuries that a skrull wouldn't have survived.First of all,Extremis would have revealed him as a skrull because the virus makes you go through a series of painful things such as throwing up your organs so it can make new ones,he also purposely stopped his heart once and blew off half of his own foot..he was also just uploaded with a virus that caused him to have a seizure and screw extremis.Also when the skrulls captured the Illuminati during the Kree-Skrull War...The skrulls said the Iron Man's intellect is all he had and his armor was no use to them.His intellect was his power.He's also killed and attacked several skrulls already.I think he's safe. D. Jessica Drew who has said she is a skrull and alot of signs point to her being a skrull said he was a skrull (Updated 6/12/08)
Hawkeye\Ronin\Clint Barton(Updated 6/12/08)
First of all Hawkeye appears out of nowhere and than quits being Hawkeye because Cap gave Kate Bishop his name.Would the real Hawkeye have fought for his name back? Also in the issue where he returns (please go back and read)..he has sex with Wanda walks toward the bathroom,turns around and looks at her and when he turns back to the door he makes a goofy ass face and then it cuts to somthing else.I also noticed Jarvis and Blackbolt making goofy ass faces too..and they are both skrulls.
Hawkeye could not be a skrull because
A.Wanda was the first person to see him meaning she was probably the one who revived him..she's already done it twice. B.Why would a skrull Hawkeye who know one knows exists go have sex with a mutant that has nothing to do with Invasion and is possibly depowered. C.Ronin killed the skrull posing as Hawkeye.He might still be a skrull not knowing the Clint skrull was a skrull,I doubt that though.Nobody who has been through Strange's magic skrull test has been proven to be a skrull. (Updated 6/12/08)
Luke Cage\Jessica Jones\Danielle Cage
Ok.I have noticed a few things about Cage and his family that don't add up.
A.Danielle Cage has green eyes.
B.Luke Cage promised his grandmother on her death bed that he wouldn't curse but he's been using profanity alot lately.In fact the whole time during Secret Invasion when he's fighting the "fake" Luke..he's cursing.There is an issue of New Avengers where Cage chews out Spider-Man..but does not curse yet now all of a sudden he can't control himself. C.There is a woman that appears in the circle in Mighty Avengers #14 who appears to be pregnant.You can't really see her whole stomach because she's wearing a jacket but she has the same hair color and facial features as Jessica Jones. D.If one of these characters is a skrull then they all are.If Cage is a skrull,Jessica would have to have know to have his baby...and I know she wouldn't willingly have a skrull baby.If Jessica is one then Cage would have known when she laid a skrull egg...and Danielle is self-explanitory. E.When it was found out that Cage got away from the police in Harlem during Civil War...Jessica had a shocked look and Danielle made a goofy skrull face which looked sort of suprized...but if you think about it,Danielle would have been too young to know what was going on.Danielle also makes a goofy ass face before the last panel in New Avengers #38.Another weird face is made at the end of New Avengers #31. F.Jessica Jones never let's Danielle go unless she gives the baby to Cage.New Avenger #33 is the first time where anyone but Cage and Jessica held the baby.She gave the baby to Echo but never actually took her hands off over her except for a second.Something is wrong with that.You can see in almost every panel that they are in while Echo is holding the baby that Jessica Jones never leaves Echo's side hand has her hands between her arms touching Danielle.
The reason I don't think Cage or his family are skrulls is.
A.Black people can have green eyes although it would make more sense if Jessica's eyes are green.
B.Cage could just be really pissed right now.
C.The woman in the circle might not be Jessica...but It really could be.I don't know who else it could be.Also Maybe Cage wasn't there when Danielle was born.
D.Maybe Yu didn't think about the fact Danielle would be too young to know that it was Cage who got away from SHIELD.
E.Cage independently looked for Jessica after the battle with the Hood's Gang and has flashbacks about being with her.Jessica and Cage also argued about the registration and the safety of the baby.Jarvis knew about the conversation yet he didn't her the whole thing.So who would Jessica and Cage be putting up a front for.Why would two skrulls argue over things happening in someone their copyings life if not to appear normal in front of everyone else.
F.Cage passed Strange's test and if Black to the Future was really forshadowing to what could happen in the future...Danielle Cage is not a skrull.
Cyclops \Scott Summers His judgement has been poor but it seems he has a plan.His behavior has been out of the ordinary as well.Also there seems to be plenty of skrulls with his powers and skrulls with a majority of mutant power...Who would be more likely to know all there powers then the leader. (Updated 6/12/08)
Wolverine\Logan\James Howlett He's on several teams at once and hasn't explained it well.Has been way to nice for Wolverine.There are several skrulls with his claws.However...like Iron Man,Wolverine has taken attacks that would have killed a skrull but not him.There could be a Wolverine skrull on another team though.
Black Widow\Wasp\Ares\Wonder Man I have no idea about these guys.I'm going to guess they aren't skrulls because there is supposed to be one on every team and on the Mighty Avengers it was Ms.Marvel.Ares wanted the team to run away while he dealt with the supposed skrulls though...he could have been protecting them.If they left and he stayed...he wouldn't actually have to fight them because know one would be around to see that he wasn't he could have just lied and said he did.
War Machine\James Rhodes There's no clear evidence....he's not.I wouldn't say he is though. -There will be a comic coming out soon called "War Machine:Director of Shield" So I would assume Marvel isn't starting a new series for a skrull (Updated 6/12/08)
Henry Gyrich He can't remember anything and he's a bigger douche than normal.
Mariah Hill I haven't seen any evidence she's not and she would be a great asset to the Invasion.Bendis and Quesada have taken interest in her since Civil War though.
Madame Hydra/Viper (Updated 6/12/08) Alot members of Hydra seem to be skrulls,It's possible the leader is as well.She also seems to know something about Jessica Drew that nobody else does.
Echo Daisy Johnson Ms.Marvel The Hulk Thor Deadpool Moon Knight Black Panther Storm Ghost Rider Captain America (James Buchannan) Captain America (Steve Rogers) Captain America (legally Steve Rogers) Agent XIII\Sharon Carter Cable Bishop The Sentry Dr.Doom Hercules Iron Fist Black Tarantula Heroes for Hire She-Hulk Cloak Captain Britain Black Knight Spitfire Pete Wisdom MVP The Scarlet Spiders Justice Rage Slapstick Debrii Gauntlet Gambit Fury's Team -Howling Commandos Spider-man Swordsman Venom Green Goblin Penance Moonstone Doc Samson Crossbones Human Torch The Thing Franklin Richards Thor Girl The Young Avengers Skrull Busters Runaways New Warriors Professor Charles Xavier (Updated 7/7/08)
SAVAGE LAND\KNOWN SKRULLS
Ok so now we have to Wonder...
A.Are the duplicate heroes in the Savage Land skrulls?
B.What are the skrulls doing with the people they duped?
C.Is it possible that some of the heroes on the ship are the real thing or clones?
1.We know Iron Man is the real thing and the one on the ship is a fake.
2.We know the real Ms.Marvel is the one on earth not the one wearing the old Captain Marvel suit because the real Ms.Marvel gave that suit to Ultragirl.
3.We know the Scarlet Witch on the ship is a fake because of House of M.
4.We don't know the Beast on the ship is a fake because the one on Earth evolved into that Dog thing.
5.We know the Thor on the ship is fake because of Ragnarok
6.Captain America and Mockingbird is a toss up.Captain America is dead here but that could be a clone.Mockingbird remembered the date Hawkeye gave her but that doesn't mean she's not a clone or a skrull.She also said the Captain America on the ship was the real one.We know the Hawkeye on the ship is a skrull and so is Spiderman and Vision.
7.The Luke Cage who is gets off the ship is using profanity as well as the one we think is real.Maybe one is a clone and one is a skrull.I'm sure if they were both skrulls they would know.I think the more likely result is the Cage on earth is the real one.
8.I'm not sure about Emma either.Maybe the one on the ship is the real one and maybe not.The one who isn't on the ship though has undergone a secondary mutation...a skrull wouldn't be able to do that because there is no one on Earth with Diamond skin for her to imitate.They could both be skrulls of clones though.
9.The Phoenix on the ship could be a real one or a clone.The Phoenix is more powerful than the Sentry whom the skrulls said they could not imitate.This is the first indication that there maybe clones on the ship.This could also be the real Phoenix.
10.The Sue Storm on the ship is obviously fake because of Civil War...there has to be a real Sue Storm on earth.I would assume that is a clone.The Skrull version already turned out to be Lyja.
I am assuming that the Skrulls have the real heroes somewhere and they will return after the Invasion.
DECEASED (update 9/18/08)
1. Spitfire-turned into a Vampire and killed by Blade 2 .Skrull Priest-Killed by Cyclops 3. Savage Land Skrulls-Killed By the Avengers and Iron Man 4. Captain Marvel
SKRULL FACE THOERY
This thoery has always worked for me so far...All the skrulls that have been revealed except Revolutionary...has been seen making weird faces before they are discovered.Blackbolt was always making all types of faces in Illuminati because he couldn't talk,but in Illuminati #4(I believe) which is just before BB's reveal...he makes a happy kind of face and points at Iron Man..and we all know Blackbolt is unhappy because he can't talk.Jarvis's face is almost always normal as it should be but in SI#2,Jarvis makes this really cheesy happy faces when he's talking to Tony.Elektra as well makes some pretty random faces and one just before Echo shishkabobs her.This may mean that because of the faces they have made..other characters are skulls.
1.In the issue of New Avengers where Clint Barton retruns...he has sex with Wanda...he then gets of the bed and walks toward the bathroom.Before opening the door he turns back and looks at her and then when he turns back...he makes a shocked face.The scene cuts to something else so it never shows what suprized..maybe it was a skrull?
2.Danielle Cage has made faces since her birth that show emotions she couldn't possibly understand at her age.When Cage got away from SHIELD i Harlem and Jessica realized it from the report on the news..Danielle had a shocked look on her face.She couldn't possibly have understood that report at her age.Also Cage and Jessica had a light argument in the bed room in one New Avengers comic...in the last panel of there argument,Danielle is in her baby carriage with a weird look on her face.
