Secret Invasion #2

Post by TheMyth on Wed May 07, 2008 1:58 pm

Spoiler:
baybe not spoilers, but i'll put in here anyway.

not as much happened in this as the first issue, but the art is mighty fine, and a few (and i mean a limited few) questions answered.

skrull deaths keep us on our feet, and the final splash page in NYC looks promising.

Spoiler:
I'm kind of surprised they've brought back Mockingbird, she mentioned she was about a year away but she died in about '94 so that's fourteen years of comics they're condensing into one (is is possible she could still be a skrull anyway?? Hawkeye seemed to die in Disassembled so 'Ronin' could've been a skrull which has been pretending to be him, actually I can't check at the moment but i'm almost certain Mockingbird was one of the dead characters from the X-Statix Dead Girl mini series from a couple of years ago, I doubt the Skrulls had infiltrated purgatory, limbo, hell or wherever it was the mini was set). Thought the encounter between the seriously evil (and fun) Skrull Vision and Sentry was handled well. They're teasing the idea that Cap or Spidey might have been skrulls but I don't see that going down well with fans given the high profile and controversial stories they've had the past year. I'm guessing there'll be at least one human replaced by a skrull in the chaos of the fight. I feel like I'm second guessing every single line and potential motive of all the characters, so far i'm quite enjoying this little story.

Spoiler:
yj, i think you will notice that all the "heroes" on the ship are from the 70's/ 80's, and all that time for them has felt like one year, but in fact been much longer, almost like they have traveled through time. I don't actually think they are saying that between then and now has been actually one year, just for them. That's the way I read it anyway. Bendis wouldn't let anything like that go without reason, and there have been reference to the "last year" by tony stark where he talks of the house of m, civil war and wwh. I'm feeling it "marvel" time, it's been about a year and a half since the house of m, a year since civil war, and six months since wwh.

i think the time plot point will tie in somewhere down the track.[/quote]

Spoiler:
There's a feature at Comic Book Resources where Bendis talks about the issue that's worth a read. He covers pretty much everything I mentioned in my previous post, not confirming or denying any of the ambiguities of the issue just confirming they're all deliberate. The teaser comments for what's coming up #3 sound interesting, looks like the pace will really ramp up a notch. Not too keen on one aspect of the tease though but I'll wait to see how it pans out before commenting on that. Urgh a whole month to wait.....
