Following that are comments on Punisher War Journal #13 and Avengers: The Initiative #7. Next, it’s a big ol’ heapin’ helpin’ of SkrullWatch! We’re joined by Pat Loika and time is spent going through Avengers: Disassembled, New Avengers: Breakout, and New Avengers #36 making claims and observations about who is and isn’t a Skrull. Along the way we touch on (in no particular order) the Kree – Skrull War, Wolverine: Origins, Dr. Strange, Young Avengers/Runaways, Young Avengers AND Runaways, She-Hulk, Thor, Iron Man, and Messiah CompleX.

The sound quality of the audio that starts the episode is not the norm for the entire episode.
