The blockbuster comic book event of year continues as fans, retailers and critics agree—Secret Invasion is a smash hit! Secret Invasion has everyone asking “Who do you trust?” and the fate of the Marvel Universe may be in the hands of the intergalactic threat known as the Skrulls. In order to fully understand the Skrulls’ plan and how our heroes are working to stop them at all costs, these tie-ins give you the full scope on just how serious and dangerous the Skrulls really are!

Avengers: The Initiative #16 introduces us to a whole new kind of threat and this one isn’t for humans! That’s right true believers, there is only one band of heroes we can trust and in this issue we get the all star return of every Skrull’s worst nightmare, the SKRULL KILL KREW. Could this be what Earth needs to push back the Skrull Invasion.

Also in Black Panther #40 the scope of the invasion is realized. Can the Skrulls make their way into the impenetrable Wakanda? T’Challa’s home nation has a reputation for holding back invaders, but Earth has never seen this kind of threat before. This very well could be the death blow for Wakanda. Will their forces be able to defeat the all new breed of Super-Skrull?

Carol Danvers has had a pretty tough time during the Secret Invasion and in Ms. Marvel #30 her outlook isn’t getting much better. Just when things couldn’t possibly get any worse, Ms. Marvel finds herself on Riker’s Island with a threat that’s BIGGER then the invasion itself! This does not bode well for anyone in the Marvel U. It’s time to welcome our new Skrull overlords.

Half time is over and so far the Skrulls have outmatched our heroes. With the Invasion at large, is there any hope left for Earth? Marvel urges retailers to check their orders on Secret Invasion and all tie-ins, as they continue to sell out quickly at Diamond. The Skrulls are here…who do you trust?
