Nick Fury brings the Skrull invasion front and center this week. He and his rogue team alert Tony Stark that one of the Avengers is a Skrull. Their intel leads to Hawkeye being the suspect. Tony returns to the Avengers disillusioned that anyone he has worked with may be a Skrull. Conflict arises after Tony accuses Hawkeye. New Avenger Ms. Marvel tries to bring Clint in for a S.W.O.R.D. investigation. The archer refuses and the Avengers have a brief scuffle amongst themselves.
As a result, Iron Man leaves the Avengers, Black Panther returns to Wakanda to defend his home, and Captain America skillfully and Skrullfully re-forms the team with he as the leader. Let’s not forget the major off-screen smackdown between the Ms. Marvel and a giant griffin. The twist: Mockingbird, of Fury’s group, is the Skrull queen playing everyone else like pawns in chess.
While it was nice of Hulk to show his heroic convictions in backing Clint, he had a terrible line of comic relief. As T’Challa meditates, Hulk complained “HE TALKS TOO MUCH!” That could have been due to deep hunger pains, but it’s more of a case of trying to make Hulk funny again.
At least the folks at EMH are giving me reason to stick around and try to watch Young Justice. Fury is missed. I didn’t mind Maria Hill leading S.H.I.E.L.D., but Fury should always have a part to play in any Avengers story. Scroll down to the comment boxes and tell me if YOU were relieved Fury’s back.
