And so it begins...
Or apparently it began years and years ago, as Bendis would have us believe.
So the first Secret Invasion issue isn’t too bad. The art doesn’t quite work in places, and it takes a hell of a time to get going. Bendis’ dialogue isn’t quite as sparky as usual (but thank god there’s no thought bubbles - jeez that doesn’t work).
But of course what we want here are revelations. So it looks like Dum Dum is a Skrull, Henry Pym (since when... since forever??), and jarvis - or jarvis is some kinda sleeper agent.
But the big revelation is the 17 heroes who emerge from the ship. Personally, I’m not convinced. While it’d be great to have Mockingbird back and Jean Grey, plus Jewel, the thought that people like Ms Marvel, Cap, Spidey, Iron Man and Wolvy have been Skrulls all along is just... well it’s just too much.
