Last night a plethora of fans in New York and Los Angeles had the chance to be the first to see marvel’s The Avengers, and within minutes, we finally learned who the soldiers are in Loki’s Army…
Considering Nick Fury in this universe is based on the Ultimate Nick Fury, it is no real surprise that the alien army is made up of Chitauri, the Ultimate Skrulls.
The Chitauri were able to mimic human form and absorb human knowledge, apparently by ingesting the bodies or brains of the humans they imitated. In their natural form, they appear to be large, and reptilian, but no clear images of their native form have been shown. Although the drone workers were nearly mindless and not much more durable than humans, the high-ranking officers such as Kleiser possessed super-strength to rival Captain America, superhuman stamina and durability, extremely rapid regeneration, and the ability to see or sense invisible objects or people.
So, shape changing aliens that are among us and destroying us from the inside as well as externally. So what if Loki has an army… remember, we have a Hulk.
