So, I would have to say that Secret Invasion #1 fritzed out my brain a little. Not "blew my mind," because that is not what it did. It's like while Bendis was stirring the pot and stirring it and stirring it, he talked on his cell phone and had a thumb war with is kid (with the non-stirring thumb) and watched "The Hills" and spit watermelon seeds at a trash can across the room and sang some Wagner and then someone came in the kitchen and looked in the pot and was like "um, what is that?" And Bendis is like "only the most delicious 17-bean chili ever, why do you ask?"
Anyway, if all those people in the ship are supposed to be people who were replaced 30 years ago, then obviously that is complete nonsense. If there's something more to it, or rather I should say less, then it could be interesting. But right now it's feeling a little Truman Show-y, and if I'm making reference to Jim Carrey movies, I must be feeling a little off. Also, I was kind of put out by Joe Q's whole thing at the end where he talks about all the years of back-issues of stuff I MUST BUY if I'm to have any REAL idea of what's going on.
Although I did like seeing Reed Richards scattered to the wind like a cobweb.
