We’ve been waiting for it ever since Elektra was revealed as a Skrull, now Marvel launches the first salvo of Secret Invasion: Infiltration in two issues – New Avengers: Illuminati #5, and Avengers: The Initiative Annual #1.

They are sans word balloons, but Marvel has sent a sneak peek of the two issues that you can see after the jump.

In New Avengers: Illuminati #5, by the red-hot creative team of writers Brian Bendis, Brian Reed and artist Jimmy Cheung, the mysterious Illuminati come together to discuss the shocking discovery in New Avengers #31—the Skrull body of Elektra! As this evidence of invasion is presented to the group, they must decide what this means to the future of Earth and who they can trust! By the end of the issue, the Illuminati will never be the same again as a jaw dropping revelation with the team—and readers—stunned. War is declared…but by who?
