Korvac! Guardians of the Galaxy! Captain America Skrullifically unavailable! Why is Michael Korvac on Earth? Because he’s a dangerous fugitive. We don’t get to see much in Korvac’s motivations other than he’s a Big Space Villain. Ms. Van Dyne needs to get over Hank. Her next act of “compassion” will lead the Avengers to get sucked into a extra-dimensional vortex within 3 minutes from the start of the next episode.

What I don’t get is why after three episodes are there four separate plot threads: Sue Richards of the Fantastic Four being a Skrull, Iron Man resisting registering the Avengers to S.H.I.E.L.D., and Captain America being a Skrull with Thor bringing Asgardian shenanigans back to Earth.
