    I must have missed something. The narrator was talking about “Not these two” at the end of the trailer… one of the pics was Spiderman. Was the other James Barnes aka New Captain America?

    You know, I don’t really see the point in being cynical about this. Maybe it just appeals to the side of me that loves the classic, cheesy B-Movie variety, which Secret Invasion is sort of being marketed similarly to, even down to the logo’s typeface, but I for one think that Marvel’s hype machine has been on top of things with this event. Faux propaganda like this is just what it takes to get someone into this, and I for one think that this is going to be the best event since Secret Wars, and I said the same thing about Civil War.

    that was craptacular. the secret invasion logo is very “Mars Attacks” style, too.

    This “hype” is so forced. Perhaps the story doesn’t really stand on its own? Who do your trust? Who do you think will be used as an editorial magic wand?

    I know I’ve heard that Iron Man isn’t a Skrull but has anyone said that Tony Stark isn’t?
