A very light week for quotes. There is one thing that consistently crossed my mind reading all of Marvel’s Secret Invasion tie-ins this week. I couldn’t help but notice similarities between the motivation of the Skrulls and a certain real world religion.
Secret Invasion: X-Men #1
This is Holy war we’ve embarked on. A crusade. Only the very best — The bravest, the strongest, the most radiant in virtue — are fit to fight in a crusade.
To break it down more the Skrulls seem to be split into two factions who don’t get along and one is much more extreme and on a quest to liberate humanity from the oppression it views the super human community brings it.
Invading Skrulls = Al Qaeda?
Super Humans = the West/U.S.?
