Secret Invasion (2008) #2 | Booklicious Podcast | Episode 24
Welcome back to our 2nd part of Secret Invasion, where we bring you the latest updates on the battle between the superheroes and the Skrulls. In our previous episode, we saw how the Skrulls attacked the earth, and the superheroes were struggling to identify who among them was the real Skrull imposter. Let’s continue our story and see what happens next.
The battle between the superheroes has intensified, and they are fighting each other, trying to identify who the real Skrull is. Hawkeye, unfortunately, dies in the fight and turns into a Skrull. The Avengers are shocked to see that one of their own was a Skrull imposter.
Wolverine, thinking that Bobbi Morse is also a Skrull, attacks her. However, another version of Hawkeye intervenes and asks her a personal question to verify her identity. She talks about her miscarriage, which she never told anyone except her husband, Hawkeye. The other Hawkeye removes his mask to show that he was her real husband, and the other person was just an imposter.
Meanwhile, Iron Man is down due to the Skrulls’ attack on his system using an alien virus. Carol takes Iron Man to a hidden laboratory, the Mutate Citadel, to figure out what happened and how the alien virus attacked his system.
Iron Man: “Carol, I need you to go to Manhattan and find out what’s happening there. And also, please carry my less tech-oriented armor so that I can fight the Skrulls using my own brain, which they can imitate.”
Carol: “Got it, Tony. I’ll do my best.”
As Carol leaves to go to Manhattan, the Skrulls attack the city, catching the superheroes off guard.
The heroes are still not prepared to fight this battle. Will they be able to defeat the Skrulls and save the earth? Only time will tell.
That’s it for today’s episode. Tune in next week for the next part of our Secret Invasion series. Until then, stay safe and stay tuned.
