Where is Scarlet Witch when you need her?

Instead of “No More Mutants,” how about “No More Secret Invasion Flashbacks.”

New Avengers #45 delves into the impact of the House of M on the Secret (Skrull) Invasion, complete with a gratuitous Wolverine cameo.

And six months into this unending series of Secret Invasion flashbacks, I am done.

Done with flashbacks. Done with Secret Invasion. And done with Brian Michael Bendis trying to show us, month after month, just how clever he is.

No mas, no mas.

Disagree? Have you enjoyed the Secret Invasion? Speak out below!

From Marvel (preview): “If the Skrulls have infiltrated us for years preparing for the INVASION, then what happened to them during the legendary HOUSE OF M event? Find out here in another huge chapter in the Secret Invasion story packed with shocking reveals.” On sale September 24, 2008.

  1. On the plus side, we get another look at the house of M (sorry I love that series, only event that Marvel’s done in the last couple of years that I actually enjoyed)

  2. I think it’s cool how Logan was one of the first to see through the House of M illusion. I know it’s probably because his mind has been scrambled one too many times. But I can’t help but wonder if Romulus had a hand in Logan’s memories returning.

  3. I do not mind the flashbacks, but it should have taken up about 2-3 issues at the most for everything. The amount of story in each issue is close to nothing. I enjoy secret invasion, but would have really liked it if it was half as long
