L'histoire commence par une évasion massive soigneusement préparée dans la prison spécialisée en supervilains, baptisée du sobriquet de The Raft (une annexe de Ryker's Island). A l'instant où se produit la panne d'électricité qui va favoriser les évasions, Matthew Murdock (Daredvil), Jessica Drew (Spiderwoman) et Luke Cage (Powerman) sont sur place. Ils y sont rejoints par Captain America et Spiderman, alertés par les éclairs en provenance de The Raft.
Cette première histoire narre la reformation des vengeurs, sous le nom de New Avengers, pour endiguer cette évasion massive et déterminer son commanditaire. Le scénario fait la part belle à l'action, superbement servie par les dessins très énergétique du David Finch (dans le plus pur style Marc Silvestri). Le relationnel entre les héros est exposé aux lecteurs grâce à des dialogues ciselés (concis et efficaces) du maître en la matière M. Bendis.Lire la suite ›

by Brian Michael Bendis, et. al
(Marvel Comics, 2009)
This is one of the best books in the "Secret Invasion" crossover series, with a hefty dose of gritty violence and some dark, alien psychology. Bendis' writing is notably stronger here than on the companion "Mighty Avengers" book (is he playing favorites) and the feel of this collection is more cohesive as well. Here we see the nuts-and-bolts of the Skrull campaign to replace humans with Skrull agents, including several deeply disturbing medical experiments as they perfect their technique. Some of the issues are top-quality, right up there along with the best that Bendis has done elsewhere. In one issue he tracks the underworld's reaction to the invasion (hmmm... guess I *will* have to check out the Hood, after all..) and the last episode features a break from the action as we revisit "Alias" star Jessica Jones and see her courtship with Luke Cage. As with both of the rebooted Avengers titles, we see very little of the team itself, amid all the uber-plot crossover stuff: will these books ever show the teams in action again, or will they always be part of some grand scheme? Anyway, this is one of the best SI books so far... It's gettin' mighty Skrully, for sure! (Joe Sixpack, ReadThatAgain book reviews)
In 2004, Bendis took an Avengers book that was stale and more than a decade from good story-telling. His first story arc was Avengers: Disassembled. The Scarlet Witch went crazy and killed several members. The eventually subdued the Scarlet Witch, Magneto shows up and takes her away and the the team decides to disband.
A few months later there is a break-out at Rikers Island and dozens of villains escape. Spiderman, Captain America, Wolverine, Daredevil, Jessica Drew and Luke Cage all show up to put things in order. Steve Rogers decides that it was fate and he convinces Tony Stark to reboot the Avengers. Daredevil declines, but everyone else is in. They also happen upon a mysterious man known as The Sentry.
600+ kids die in a tragedy caused by young, untrained heroes in Stamford, CT. The US Government responds by passing the Superhuman Registration Act. Tony Start is for it. Steve Rogers is against it. The heroes split and fight in a Civil War. After its conclusion, Rogers is killed. Luke Cage becomes the leader of the New Avengers, as they try to do good works while avoiding Tony Stark's Mighty Avengers. Luke's Avengers go to Japan to help Echo deal with Elektra and the Hand. During the ensuing battle, Elektra is killed....and it is revealed that she is a skrull. Jessica Drew takes the body, against the wishes of the rest of the team, to Tony Stark. And the Skrull Invasion has begun...
In this trade, there are a few interesting storylines/features:
(1) The story of how the Skrull Captain America was created and why he thinks he is Cap
(2) The final story of how the Skrull scientists kept trying to figure out how to make the Skrulls undetectable on Earth (thus evading Spiderman, Daredevil, Dr. Strange, Richards, Stark, Wolverine & Xavier). It is, in my opinion, the greatest Reed Richard story ever told. It captures his intellect and character incredibly well. But to appreciate this story, you must know the backstory of the Fantastic Four, the New Avengers and the Illuminati trade.
(3)The Skrulls reaction to House of M. This is handled brilliantly. Queen Veranke and Skrull Hank Pym awaken to the world of House of M and they are completely horrified. This makes the invasion so much harder. In discussing why the humans haven't revolted against this false reality, Veranke offers up this gem, "And if this proves anything at all...It's that as long as they are left alone to eat, sleep, watch their tv and fornicate, most of the human race will go along with whatever they are told to do." Biting social commentary.
(4) How Parker Robbins discovers that their is a Skrull Invasion.
Looking back at Bendis's entire Avengers run, a few things become very clear:
(1) He is the definitive writer of a number of heroes:
(a) Daredevil - obviously...his early 2000's run on that book was incredible and built on the seminal work of Frank Miller the way no other writer was able to
(b) Spiderwoman - she was a 3rd rate hero in the 70's and forgotten by the 80's. Bendis brought her back and gave her a great story. His Spiderwoman solo books are also very good.
(c) Luke Cage - Bendis has made him an A-list Avenger and Marvel character
(d) Spiderman - Bendis does a great job with this universe's Spiderman, but his defining character in all of comics may be Ultimate Spiderman
(e) Reed Richards - The leader of the FF (and the smartest man in the Marvel Universe) makes a lot of appearances during the Bendis Avengers run (he is also a star of "An Oral History," but more on that later). Bendis handles Reed better than any other writer I've come across. I'm very much looking forward to the day in 2019 when Marvel announces that Bendis is going to write the FF. The Reed Richards story in New Avengers, Vol. 9 is an all-time great story.
There are other characters that Bendis handles brilliantly, including Captain America, Iron Man, Iron Fist, Hawkeye, Dr. Strange and Wolverine.
Finally, a great companion piece to these Avenger books is Bendis's "An Oral History of the Avengers." He has the Avengers talk about their history (60's through 80's) in a reality tv confessional booth type of format. It's amazing.
The first half of book 2 picks up from the New Avengers Vol. 8: Secret Invasion, Book 1 Savage Land story. Captain America and the escaped heroes that had been replaced by Skrulls crash there. I'll admit that Cap confused me while reading the main event and other tie-ins. He appeared to be the real Cap, who was ostensibly assassinated at the end of Civil War. Since heroes never really die, I thought maybe THAT Cap had been a Skrull. This story finally clarifies his status. Also included are events that take place from the Skrull POV as they plan the invasion - including how they learned to hide themselves from all methods of detection. This part was ingenious, though readers will have to suspend their disbelief (even more than usual).
The middle section shows Jessica Drew during House of M. I found it interesting that Wanda's power was hoodwinked by the Skrulls as well. The next story reveals how thorough the Skrulls tried to be in infiltrating any super-powered "group," including the Red Hood's. The book closed, as the first book opened, with a story of Jessica Jones and Luke Cage. Again, it's not essential but does loosely tie in.
Overall, both books are excellent companions to the main crossover event. Highly recommended.
I've used this analogy before, but I'll use it here again, I don't want to read about Secret Invasion from the Skrulls' POV anymore than I want to read Jurassic Park from the POV of the T-Rex.
The stories in this comic are just boring and repetitive and honestly it feels like Bendis was just reaching with this comic and was just throwing things against the wall to see what would stick. And did this stick? Not really. The only good parts were the ones with Luke Cage fighting the SHIELD agents and the fake Captain America fighting with Spidey and crew in the Savage Land.
I just can't really recommend this comic. I think it's time that I leave Secret Invasion in the past and move on to other storylines.
