Home, the final episode of Marvel’s Secret Invasion, aired recently to negative reviews. Despite a promising start, the show had a number of problems, chief among which were the omission of Gravik’s backstory, lackluster character development, and the use of Nick Fury as a plot device rather than a fully fleshed-out protagonist. Because of how intertwined the Marvel Cinematic Universe is, the series must leave certain questions unanswered.
While tying up some loose ends, the series deftly presented fresh mysteries and puzzling story twists, laying the groundwork for the next installments of The Multiverse Saga. Secret Invasion has left fans in search of explanations and excited to travel to uncharted regions of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. These explanations range from the astounding power of G’iah and the significance of Priscilla’s work to the secrets of Skrull’s replacements and the political intrigues surrounding presidential transitions.
G’iah’s Unprecedented Power and Future
In a not-so-unexpected twist, Fury discovers that G’iah, not him, is meeting with Gravik in New Skrullos, disguised as Fury. The revelation comes as Gravik activates the Super Skrull process with the Harvest, trapping “Fury” inside the machine. When G’iah reveals herself, she emerges imbued with the combined powers of the Avengers and other superhumans from the Battle for Earth.
G’iah’s newfound abilities make her the most powerful being in the entire MCU, potentially shifting the balance of power in future conflicts. However, her overwhelming strength also poses a challenge as it might tempt writers to take the easy way out in future confrontations. Fans are curious to see when and where she’ll wield her powers and whether they come with limitations or consequences.
The relationship between G’iah and Sonya Falsworth gives the narrative an unexpected twist. In order to avoid making the same mistakes as Fury, the two women resolve to work together to make Earth safe for both humans and Skrulls, but Sonya establishes tight limits and emphasizes that their relationship will stay entirely professional.
Audiences anxiously await their upcoming team appearances as they were last seen tearing down a hideaway for replaced people. Future installments of The Multiverse Saga may find it intriguing to explore the interplay between these two intelligent, powerful people.
Priscilla’s Pivotal Role and the Presidential Transitions
Another unsolved topic is what role Priscilla has in the MCU. As Secret Invasion comes to a close, Fury is getting ready to leave the S.A.B.E.R. Space Station when Priscilla appears out of nowhere and offers to join him while she finishes some crucial work on Earth.
She was a doctor in her former life as Varra, and her book “Decoding the Superhuman Gene” was discovered in her home. This prompts questions about the nature of her work and how it could affect mutants in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Marvel fans eagerly await news on whether Priscilla’s trip will be continued on S.A.B.E.R. or whether it will be covered in further projects.
The fragile balance between the human and alien populations on Earth is highlighted by President Ritson’s role as a leader in Secret Invasion. Questions regarding his future in the MCU arise as a result of his activities, which have enormous consequences. Political intrigue and prospective power changes are set in motion by Fury’s choice to leave Talos, his closest ally, for dead in order to secure Ritson’s safety. Fans are curious as to how and when Ritson will change into Thaddeus “Thunderbolt” Ross, especially given that the character will be introduced in forthcoming movies.
Unraveling the Skrull Replacement Mysteries
Secret Invasion not only unveiled Agent Ross’s replacement by a Skrull but also left fans questioning when the switch took place. Considering his crucial role in the Black Panther film series, particularly in providing insider information to the Wakandans, the implications of his replacement are significant.
However, the revelation also leads to an intriguing follow-up question: if the Skrull seen in Black Panther: Wakanda Forever is not Ross, could it be possible that another character close to the story is a Skrull impostor? Marvel has an opportunity to use such storylines to explain character absences or peculiar behavior in future films and series.
Another significant Skrull replacement – Don Cheadle’s James Rhodes – has been replaced by the Skrull Raava. Even while the exact timeline for Rhodes’ replacement is still uncertain, it is believed that the upcoming Armor Wars film will provide much-needed context and background on the events leading up to Raava’s impersonation. While they wait for the movie to come out, fans are interested in how Rhodes, considering his proximity to the President, will handle the aftermath of Raava’s acts.
The Enigma of S.A.B.E.R. and Its Mysterious Inhabitants
The S.A.B.E.R. Space Station proves to be a pivotal location in Secret Invasion, housing Skrulls who are loyal to Fury. However, its true purpose and the meaning behind the acronym “S.A.B.E.R.” remain shrouded in mystery. With no comic book counterpart, fans eagerly anticipate a future project that will unveil the secrets of this complex aerospace defense system. Questions linger as to why Fury did not summon the Skrulls from S.A.B.E.R. to aid against the rebellion, and viewers hope that The Marvels will shed light on this matter.
Audiences are left with conflicted feelings as Secret Invasion comes to an end. While some unfinished plotlines serve as deliberate preludes to upcoming Marvel productions, others leave fans pining for resolution. Secret Invasion’s conclusion prepares the audience for future conflicts, allies, and disclosures.
However, The Marvels, Captain America: Brave New World, and Armor Wars are drawing viewers who are looking for quick solutions. Fans are intrigued by the lingering possibility of a Season 2 and look forward to how the MCU will resolve these unresolved issues and provide a satisfactory conclusion to the Secret Invasion plot.
