Mighty Avengers – Secret Invasion | Comics

For long, Skrulls have planned for a Secret Invasion on Earth and Nick Fury goes underground to repel their attack.

A few months ago, Nick Fury sent a team of Black Widow, Captain America, Daredevil, Luke Cage, Spider-Man and Wolverine to Latveria for a covert mission of overthrowing its terrorist government. He erased this memory off their minds when things went south and bid farewell to his friends via an LMD that was butchered by Logan.

A month later, he meets Countess Valentina Allegra de Fontaine in disguise at a secret hideout of Mexico and spends the night together. Next day, she goes out to get something to eat and Fury follows her in cloak to see her meeting an unknown man, talking about gaining his pass codes for S.H.I.E.L.D. files before eliminating him.

Back home, Nick was waiting for her to get back and asks Fontaine about her true motives at gun point. He then shots her in the head as her body immediately returns to its original form of a shape-shifting Skrull and left it for her allies to find later.

Fury shows up at S.H.I.E.L.D. Helicarrier to pay Maria Hill a visit and she wakes up to find him sitting next to her in surprise. He tells her to be wary of her surroundings and get a dozen of LMDs to employ them whenever she has a bad gut feeling. Nick warns her by saying that he will be keeping an eye on her before making a sudden departure.

He then meets Spider-Woman two months later to set her up as a double-agent who would report to him on Hydra and S.H.I.E.L.D. Giving her brief idea of an infiltration of Skrulls, Fury leaves to figure out other pieces of the puzzle.

One by one, he starts recruiting Druid, Hellfire, Phobos, Quake, Slingshot and Stonewall to form his very own team of Secret Warriors. Skrulls have sent one of their agent Criti Noll, who shape-shifted into a college student from Oxford University and started relationship with Hank Pym to replace him after he separated from Janet Van Dyne.

For years, Skrulls were unsuccessfully trying to eliminate The Sentry with numerous measures since he is one of the threats that can ruin their plan of conquering Earth. When New Avengers were formed after "Breakout" at Raft, one of them posed as Edwin Jarvis to gather information from Tony Stark and got access to all Avengers file he had.

Jarvis imposter suggests to his peers that they simply wait for Sentry to go rogue because he thinks, Bob will go insane eventually and kill everyone. Later, a Skrull ship crash landed on Savage Land only to encounter two Avenger teams but unwilling to fight Sentry, they made him ran away believing that all of this is caused by The Void.

Right after Iron Man formed a new team of Mighty Avengers, they faced the menace of Ultron, who took control over his physical form of and while working to defeat it, imposter Hank Pym learned of Tony's organic tech and they later used this info to infect Stark with an alien virus that affected his entire computer network system.

In early phase of their operation, one of their Super-Skrull agent attempt to capture Elektra but failed miserably. Then two of them ambushed her to meet the same fate and for a third one to take her down via deception. That doppelganger then kills a HYDRA representative and a leader of The Hand to take control over Japanese underworld.

Original imposter of Yellowjacket contacts Skrull-Dum-Dum Dugan to let their Queen know that they can't possibly win against humans, causing his peers to turn against him and replaced with a clone after they killed him. Meanwhile, Nick Fury readies up members of his Secret Warriors team for a "Skrull Invasion" that breaks in New York City.

Requiem For The Fallen

From a surprise "Breakout" at maximum security prison Raft, to superhero "Civil War" and to the tragic "Death of Captain America", everything has been carefully planned and orchestrated by Skrull Queen Veranke and her allies. They took out whomever they could and replaced them with one of their own to begin a mass infiltration.

Current plotline works more of a filler to mostly point out how Skrulls have replaced each single heroes or villains with one of their own agents from starts. Original lineup of Mighty Avengers will go through a change by next story "Earth's Mightiest" with return of a few familiar faces like a new team leader Hank Pym and Scarlet Witch.
