> I noticed something, while reading this issue, that might be rather important with regard to the identity of Menace. When Harry Osborn and Lily Hollister are racing away from a Super-Skrull, they end up crashing into a light pole. Harry and Lily leave the vehicle in a hurry just as one of the Super-Skrulls blows it into pieces. Flames roaring all around him, Harry has no idea where Lily went. With a Super-Skrull hot on his tail, Harry runs away, though he wonders what happened to Lily the entire time. Harry then finds a hiding spot while the Super-Skrull sends cars flying all over the place, seemingly looking for him. Just then, someone off-panel says "Quiet you" and cuts the Super-Skrull's head right off. The someone is revealed to be none other than Menace. Now isn't it quite coincidental that Menace appeared within seconds of Lily disappearing? Didn't Brian Reed mention something in an interview a little while back about dropping big hints about the identity of Menace in this limited series? Thoughts please?

Mephisto (or new cast member dupe of his).



Some online page by page reactions...









Also discouraging continuity hinted at with him monologue mentioned by Grumpy:

Hard to see looks like layout for SI *yawn*Frontline solicits.

Add superhearing and supervoice powers to Jackpot. With windows rolled up and sounds of war going on she talks with Robbie thru the car. Still being chased by same Superskrull (down a skrull-free street) so minus good against MU heavyweights to her powers.

Havent read every panel of Jackpot to date, but she seems to have become progressively less uniquely interesting since her enjoyable Swing Shift introduction.

Oh yeah, nothing really happened to the MU in SI:FF except the BaxterBldg WAS destroyed: http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v160/estruwe/ff8.jpg
The artist gets TOO much artistic leeway here.

Maybe Ben Urich should replace Sally with the more professional reporter Betty. ;\-\)

Remind me, Spidey cant detect Venom but Venom can smell Spidey always, right? And, it's assumed that Superskrull powers are from cells taken from each of the amalgam heroes used, right? Plus, the skrulls should know Spidey is in the Savage Land but for some reason this skrull is oblivious to that fact, eh? Odd.

IIRC, an intelligent Harry lived in NYC most of his life (on more than one block). Good marketing for car ownership continues. As in Frontline, being in a car is better protection than Odinpower http://www.comicboards.com/app/show.php?rpy=thor-2008091821280414 or Kree enhanced lovely physique http://img100.imageshack.us/my.php?image=mm3010hg4.jpg

Apparently there is a font table for the skrullspeak somewhere. At this point, it should be appendixed in a small box of each SI crossover rather than make readers (some w/o pc) to waste time searching online. Its a pet peeve and too much of a bother to go to outside sources to better appreciate the predictably generic superskrull comment.

These humans are getting better(even while wounded) than some heroes at evading skrulls during this Event even w/o a car. Good for Harry.

Woah. A Strange/IM/Bolt-skrull! With a passing glance. Glider Boy and axe are MOST impressive powerwise or this is another superskrull jobbing.

Menace should TOAST Jackpot. But he predictably will NOT - the curious thing is to what will be the cause of his failure. Is he presuming or does he KNOW with his tone something the readers shouldve guessed by now. Is this evidence that Menace is Mephisto or dupe of his or just more vaguery and misdirection?

Glad didnt buy it especially after reading the recap and medial review at IGN: http://comics.ign.com/articles/913/913072p1.html
