"Flawless" isn't the right word, perhaps. But there does seem to be some sort of psychic uplink established when they take on their "deep cover" identities, (as those magical rituals seem to indicate). Speaking of those rituals, is THAT the "technique" that the Skrulls learned from the cloned Reed Richards in the recent New Avengers issue? This is supposedly the ultimate way to make Skrulls undetectable, (to science, magic, psychic powers, and Logan's nose) and Reed gives the Skrulls a magical ritual?!?Somebody wrote: Well:
- Why would he need to "improvise", as Veranke put it, in that case? [Note that the following scene with Tigra is apparently intended to signify that the transition from one Skrull Pym to the next was *not* flawless]
- The Skrull Pym who got killed by "Dugan" & co was implied not to be the first one to have Gone Rogue ("How many Hank Pyms are we going to have to switch out?" doesn't really make sense if the Pym with Tigra was only the second Skrull Pym.)
- Has it been established yet that they can give the memories of the dead to replacements? [I know Elektra & Dugan both looked dead - but hell, Dugan looked just as dead (and was originally intended to be so) in Wolverine: Origins #10]. If Dan Slott's word can be trusted, at least one of the replaced is going to be back post-SI...
- How nuts would you have to be to not only include a man who's been driving the Skrulls linked to him to rebellion in the mix (given that he was apparently essential, that could be called a calculated risk), but also incorporate at *least* one skrull who's already gone dolally from that link? The poor re-replacement skrull wouldn't last a week!
Since Bendis isn't spelling anything out, we're left doing an awful lot of interpretation, aren't we?
I'll check my issue when I get home if someone else doesn't beat me to it.EDIT: And looking about the internet, I find someone saying that the latest Skrull Pym calls himself Criti Noll in Avengers: The Initiative #14. Can anyone who reads that book confirm?
Perhaps the Yellowjacket Skrulls has so many identity problems because of the prior existing mental problems of Hank Pym?
