Default secret invasion #8 spoilers

spoilers..........................................



































































































































SPOILER. Highlight below text to read
Nice ending, had a quick read through it last night, here are the main story points for people who cannot wait, but keep in mind that I only read it quickly ...

- Thor teleports Wasp (who is now a bio-weapon because of the serum) away and she dies

- As the heroes are about to go crazy on the Skrull Queen, Osborn takes the killshot (becoming the hero to the public's eyes)

- Thor tells Tony to **** off and Bucky Captain America seems to ignore him too

- All the substituted heroes are freed from a ship (even Mockingbird)

- Few pages of people talking but it seems to me that Tony Stark is still related to SHIELD (though Osborn blames it all on him)

- Ends with Osborn in the Avengers tower heading into a meeting room with his Cabal (the Hood, Emma Frost and a couple of others, possibly Namor)

The Requiem one-shot is apparently a new 8 page story about Wasp and about 40 pages of reprints, which I found really disappointing.

Dark Avengers' line-up includes Ares, Hawkeye, Black Suit Spider-Man (though he seems to be in New Avengers with his red'n'blues), Wolverine (in New Avengers too), Marvel Boy and Iron Patriot (red and gold Iron Man is in Mighty Avengers) ... which makes the New Avengers #50 cover a lot of fun, it is both teams facing each other with each side having a Spider-Man and a Wolverine, really curious about that ...

That sounds awful, norman osborn a hero now? that's a change that will revert to to the same when he eventually goes bad again soon.

Yeah that is not a good look but i could see where they are going making the thunderbolts presented as a group of superheroes like the Avengers under there name then doing bad things,which in turn will force the public to turn on them . That's why in the dark reign pictures we see some heroes but it not them in the suits .

Yeah, I wondered that.

When I first began scrolling through all that blank space I wondered if it meant nothing happened in the issue!

Anyway, not totally surprised about the Norman Osborn thing given that i'd read elsewhere that the first signs of what Dark Reign means would be seen in Thunderbolts.

My mate is a big Marvel fan and he loves Osborn. This'll make him pretty happy.

You HAVE to start using spoiler tags or we're just going to delete these threads instead of correcting them for you.

For all that planning, the Skrulls weren't really much of a threat, huh?

Alien races tend to be a bit short sighted in fiction. Look at the Martians all that planning for nothing, killed off by bacteria. The Skrulls will be back.

When I think of Osborn as a national hero, it reminds me of President Lex Luthor.

I'm actually glad I trade-waited Secret Invasion. It sounds fun if read together, but slow-moving if monthly.

P.S. Shamon DID put spoilers in the thread title twice. If you don't want to be spoiled, why enter a thread marked SPOILERS..... no less one marked TWICE.

Well, Norman wasn't really looking too bad to the public right now, anyway, right? I mean, the Thunderbolts were already perceived as heroes...somewhat.

Question:

SPOILER. Highlight below text to read

Didn't Hawkeye killed the Skrull Queen last issue.

I may be remembering it wrong though.

 
It looks great! The fat one balances the two skinny ones.

Do you have any idea what the street value of this mountain is?

I'm really looking forward to reading the issue, I've enjoyed SI a lot, even some of the tie-ins have been great (Inhumans for example) but I feel like it was just a waypoint on the route and we're ploughing headlong into something else now.

No he shot her with a arrow in the neck. I think she was even around after that in the issue and I am sure Bendis did mention she didn't die in some interview about issue 7.

Read the spoiler policy about spoilers before the street date.

Here:

SPOILER. Highlight below text to read
Substative spoilers are NEVER allowed prior to the street date of a product. Substative is defined (by me) as being, the majority of the plot, or critical plot points that would impact the enjoyment of the piece to the consumer.



Emphasis mine

I figured since she turned all green that she had passed on.
