Skrull Invasion chronology

Post by Paul Bourcier » Mon Dec 29, 2008 1:18 pm

Here is my compilation of a chronology of events surrounding the "current" scenes in the recent SECRET INVASION series, from a point just prior to the military invasion through Requiem, including tie-ins and other stories that should occur within this time period. Blank lines indicate breaks between days.

[BTS]
The day before CM6 5 (16-22). Stark appears on TV to state that Captain Marvel was never back from the dead but rather was a time traveler from the past.
SHE-HULK v4 #30 – FB
One day. This flashback occurs after H3 115. Jen accepts an offer from the DA’s office to fight a giant Bran Murphy in return for the dropping of all charges against her and the release of cellmate Monique. Hercules arrives and fights the big Bran, who Herc reveals to be a Celtic god who he encountered in a bar while on his quest for Athena with Cho. Jazinda goes to Bran’s house, where the real Bran Murphy suffers from serving as host for the god. Bran tells Jaz that the Celtic god was responsible for the New York building explosion and is working with others ro tear She-Hulk down and remake her. When Herc beheads the big Bran, Murphy recovers. The Celtic god’s essence moves to a new host, Monique. Green grass and trees in Ohio.
SHE-HULK v4 #30
The same day as S-H4 30-FB. This story occurs before H3 116 and XF3 33. She-Hulk and Herc have sex in her trailer. Jaz returns to the trailer and senses “the talisman” “less than two hundred miles away.” Jen and Jaz take off, leaving Herc to be picked up by Athena and Cho. Green trees in Ohio.
SHE-HULK v4 #31 – FB (5-9)
The same day as S-H4 30. As she races toward Detroit, Jazinda tells Jen that the Skrulls are coming “soon and the two get into a fight about Jazinda’s withholding the information. Jaz explains that her sensing “the Talisman” means that a Skrull invasion that was planned long ago is imminent, even though she thought it would never happen.
SHE-HULK v4 #31 – FB (13)
The same day as S-H4 31-FB (5-9). Jaz tells Jen that “the Talisman” is a holy Skrull named Nogor, who arrives on earth to ensure the Skrull gods’ blessing on the forthcoming invasion.
X-FACTOR v3 #33
The same day as S-H4 31-FB (13). Theresa is visibly pregnant. Darwin hangs out in Detroit with Nogor, disguised as Longshot, who picks a fight with locals to test his powers. As Val Cooper eavesdrops, Hector Munoz drops in on X-Factor to ask their help in finding his son, Darwin. When Val calls Jamie to give him an assignment, he tells her to back off while they look for Darwin. The Longshot Skrull spots Jazinda and flees. She pursues him while Darwin tries to help his presumed friend. Jazinda threatens Darwin and is attacked by Monet, who in turn is charged by She-Hulk. Green trees in Detroit.
SHE-HULK v4 #31
The same day as XF3 33 and “several hours” after S-H4 31-FB. Jen battles Monet and Guido. Jazinda prepares to blast Nogor, but Darwin intervenes and the Longshot imposter flees. As Madrox attacks She-Hulk, Monet catches up to Darwin and Nogor and when Darwin relates Jazinda’s claim that “Longshot” is a Skrull, M fails to detect Nogor as a Skrull. However, Darwin himself causes Nogor to drop his disguise, and the Skrull blasts Monet.
X-FACTOR v3 #34
The same day as S-H4 31. As Theresa and Rictor talk to Darwin’s father, She-Hulk shakes free of Madrox and tells him and Guido that Longshot’s a Skrull. Meanwhile, Nogor tells Darwin he’s the missing link between Skrull and human. Jazinda confronts Nogor, then Monet attacks him. She-Hulk, Madrox, and Strong Guy join in, and Darwin finally decides to fight the Skrull. She-Hulk clocks Nogor and Jaz slaps a nullifier on him. They decide to take the Skrull to Stark, then conclude that Stark must be a Skrull, given everything that’s happened. Green grass and trees in Detroit.
X-FACTOR v3 #35 – FB (3:3-3:4)
The same day as XF3 34. Darwin is reunited with his father and Hector gives a check to Jamie.

MIGHTY AVENGERS #18 – FB (10-11:2)
The day after MA 18-FB (1-9). Fury sets his recruits up for a mission to abduct Maria Hill.
NOVA v4 #13
One day. As Galactus prepares to feed on the planet Orbucen, a psychic being called Harrow uses the time to possess people and commit mass slaughter on the would-be evacuees. At the office of the Central City Adjudik, Nova's been called in to help with the evacuation. The Adjudik estimates that the planet has twelve hours left and wants him to escort the aristocracy to the ships. Nova gets mad, deciding to help the "underclasses" instead. As they fly, Worldmind's relieved that Nova's not trying to fight Galactus. Rich admits there's nothing he could do. He encounters Harrow's trail of blood, and traps it in a gravimetric node. The Adjudik is less than impressed that Nova stopped to "arrest a lone killer." “Hours” later, the last of the ships is boarded. The ark's drive hasn't ignited though, and a call to the Adjudik confirms that all the drives are failing as a byproduct of Galactus' feeding. As Nova, much to the Worldmind's displeasure, flies to try and delay Galactus, the Adjudik has been infected by Harrow. Nova's pleas are cut off when the Silver Surfer grabs him by the throat.
NOVA v4 #14
The same day as NO4 13. Nova is whacked around by the Surfer, as Galactus completely ignores him. Eventually, the Surfer crashes him down towards the planet and finally acknowledges him. He says that "his master" wouldn't appreciate him fraternizing with "lower life forms." After Nova pleads his case, the Surfer shields the drives with a blink and flies off. The first wave of ships launches, and the Worldmind says the final evacuation will be complete in ten minutes. Nova goes to collect Harrow, and the Worldmind stresses urgency. Nova discovers another trail of bodies and demands the Worldmind track down Harrow, against the Worldmind's explicit warnings. Still in the Adjudik's body, Harrow cuts down people. Rich starts fighting, as the Worldmind screams that they need to get out immediately. The Ark launches, frying Nova and Harrow's body. Nova recovers after a minute or two, but Harrow's host body was shredded. The Worldmind informs him that they're trapped, as Galactus descends to feed.
NOVA v4 #15
The same day as NOVA3 14. Nova tries to keep ahead of Galactus' scouring beams as the Worldmind yells that they're doomed. When Nova proposes to use the energy syphons to fly through, the Worldmind completely loses it and yells that he's insane. When they enter, it says it's burning out. Nova manages to fly through the wall of the storage reservoir, but it’s too late. The Worldmind's apparently gone. A backup user support system kicks in, and a scan reveals that Harrow is apparently on board. Nova traces him down to its' real, insect-like body. As it grabs Rich, Nova sees that it stowed aboard Galactus' ship during the Trial of Galactus. He manages to break its' grip, and fights his way to the main deck. The Surfer, annoyed, descends, and Rich tells him to read Harrow's mind. Surfer erases the "cone of psilence" that kept Harrow hidden from Galactus, and Galactus wipes it out. As he turns his gaze to Rich, Rich panics and finds himself alive, teleported five light years away. The Surfer tells him that Galactus won't spare him again, and departs. Rich is left alone to count the cost of his heroics – Worldmind's still offline. He asks the user support for a list of distress calls and picks one.

Athena explains that “the Asgardians have just regenerated after Ragnarok” and “are too vulnerable to Skrull infiltration to be trusted.” Herc, Cho, and the four warriors depart for Dreamtime but see too late that a Skrull armada is heading for San Francisco.

Doc Samson and Alicia Masters hold a session with Skrull abductees (Jarvis, Razorback, Dum Dum, Mockingbird, She-Thing, Frog-Man, Revolutionary, Magnitude, and presumably Val de la Fontane) to help them with their post-abduction readjustment. Gauntlet assumes responsibility for the Shadow Initiative and assigns Taskmaster as field leader. After giving Ant-Man his field commission and promotion to the Thunderbolts, Gauntlet gives the Shadow Initiative an assignment to raid a Hydra training camp that Hardball is running in Madripoor. Komodo insists on going. Tigra tells Hellcat that she’s pregnant with the Pym Skrull’s baby, then she sees Trauma for counseling. Pym has Jocasta role play as Jan to find out what she would have done to find out that a Skrull was not responsible for his mistreatment of her. Pym asks Jocasta to do him a favor. Delroy is cleared of wrong-doing in the death of Crusader, but others at Camp Hammond are pissed at him. Ryder tells Riot that all the Skrulls are killed so that she can revert to human form. She does so and dies. Riot and Delroy leave to kill more Skrulls. Taskmaster confirms his suspicion that Mutant Zero is Typhoid Mary. Pym and Jocasta leave Camp Hammond.

Sentry flies off to find the bomb, only to discover that Castle bluffed. By the time he returns, Frank is gone. Castle eludes Sentry with the assistance of a mystery man who calls him on his cell phone. Frank finally passes out from his injuries at the feet of his assistant.

INVINCIBLE IRON MAN #8
One day. This story must occur after MA 20 (15-22) and perhaps before SI:DR 1 (1-7). Iron Man tries to help a construction crew with cleaning up after the Skrull invasion, but the Skrull virus has reversed the Extremis modifications to his body, and without them, he can barely control his Extremis armor. The armor’s systems crash and he crashes into the river. Stark upgrades Pepper’s repulsomatic technology. Maria Hill empties out her desk on her last day with SHIELD while Stark meets with Norman Osborn to check out of the agency. After Stark and Hill leave, Osborn illegally tries to tap into the Superhero Registration database, which triggers a virus that wipes out all coded SHIELD files on Osborn’s HAMMER servers. Osborn declares war on Stark. Stark tells Maria and Pepper that the registration database was uploaded into his brain.
INVINCIBLE IRON MAN #9
The same day as IIM 8. Stark tells Pepper and Hill that he intends to wipe his mind to get rid of the sensitive data in his head so that Osborn can’t get it. Maria refuses to be involved, but Stark tricks her into starting the process as she leaves. At the HAMMER base at Chelsea Piers, Osborn orders the movement of Stark equipment to Thunderbolts Mountain, then he receives a report that Hill has been spotted. HAMMER forces ambush Hill as she arrives at her Georgetown home. They arrest her, but she escapes. After Pepper helps Stark continue the process of a lobotomy, he tells her to go sign papers to assume his place as CEO of Stark Industries, which he’s ordered to be shut down. At a press conference at Thunderbolts Mountain, Osborn states that they’ve found evidence that Stark and Hill knew of the Skrull invasion in advance. He calls for their surrender for questioning.

SECRET INVASION: DARK REIGN #1 (1-7)
One day, perhaps after IIM 8. Emma Frost leaves Cyclops’ bed at the X-Men headquarters in San Francisco to answer a summons by Norman Osborn. She arrives at Avengers Tower, where Dr. Doom waits at a conference table. They are joined by Namor, the Hood, and the female Loki.

One day. At Avengers Tower, Norman Osborn convenes a meeting of the Hood, Emma Frost, Dr. Doom, Namor, and Loki.
SECRET INVASION: DARK REIGN #1 (8-27)
The same day as SI 8 (24-26). This segment occurs “two years” after Osborn was in prison and must occur before UX 505. It can’t be more than a year after TB 110-FB (1-5). Osborn calls for the allegiance of those at the meeting in return for favors he can do them as the leader of the Thunderbolts/Avengers/Initiative/SHIELD. Osborn offers Doom his freedom, Emma help against anti-mutant threats, Namor a future for Atlantis, Loki control of Asgard, and the Hood legitimacy. He tells them they and all their associates will register and threatens them with an enforcer if they don’t comply. Osborn tells them they’ll find out about the Avengers’ fate “in a week” and that Stark has a target on his head. Osborn leaves, as do Hood, Emma, and Loki. Doom tells Namor that Osborn will implode and that they can split the land and seas after he’s gone. Osborn returns to Thunderbolts Mountain, where things are being packed for shipping to Avengers Tower. Realizing he has no place in the new order, Swordsman threatens to expose Osborn’s misdeeds with the T-Bolts. Osborn skewers Andreas with his own sword and throws him out a window. Osborn suffers some kind of attack, as does Emma, back in bed with Cyclops.

DARK REIGN: NEW NATION #1/2
One day. This story must occur after DR:NN 1. Jimmy Woo and the Agents of Atlas steal a shipment from Fort Knox of gold bullion scheduled to be funneled by Osborn illegally to Japan as collateral on a weapons system.

Re: Skrull Invasion chronology

Post by Somebody » Mon Dec 29, 2008 10:20 pm

Some quickly-jotted notes. [I haven't had the chance to tear the whole thing apart yet ;)]

Placements/corrections:
  • SI:THOR 1-FB is badly phrased - Bill is the prisoner/experimentee of the Skrulls for an extended period, and you write it as if he was captured for less than a day. There should be a [BTS] (c.f. SI:THOR 3) some time before (say, a month) with the Skrulls removing BRB from the limbo dimension he entered in ΩF 5 and being examined and experimented upon (along with Stormbreaker), which removed his "Simon Walters" transformation and reinstated his original Korbinite form.
  • That gap in NO4 17 where you wedge the whole of the IM:DOS [War Machine] and CB&MI13 arcs (amongst other things) = huh? Why separate NO4 17 (and, by extension, 16) at all?
  • SI:WDYT? 1/5 - The Agents capture the whole skrull, the removed head specifically notes its' inability to communicate in any way. A better synopsis would be:
    SECRET INVASION: WHO DO YOU TRUST #1/5
    The same day as SECINV 5 (4-24). Skrulls attacking Portland, Oregon take Namora captive after she kills Super-Skrull Alpha. Gorilla Man and Human Robot free her and capture a Skrull field marshal to take to their flying saucer, hidden in the river. The Uranian (f.k.a. Marvel Boy) removes the still-living head and vivisects the rest, as it watches helplessly, unable to signal for help. Using the skrull head to affect them, Venus prepares to drown the skrulls, but can't go through with it since she knows they're not evil. Jimmy Woo doesn't push her - but has M-11 turn his death ray on them instead. The head observes as the heroes plan a counter-offensive. Green grass and trees in Oregon.
  • DP4 3 should occur BEFORE SI 8 (1-6)-FB. The upcoming crossover between DP4 and TB is premised upon that order.
Typos/etc:
  • You switch between NO4 and NOVA4 for Nova v4. The Key uses "NO#" for Nova series, so they should all be NO4
  • You refer to the New Avengers as "Secret Avengers" in SI 1 (13:1-23:3)
  • NO4 17 (4-22) - Xandarian Worldmind, not "Xandiarian".
  • S-H4 33 - Super-Skrull, not "Supet"
  • "GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY #7" needs a "v2" in there

It looks like you know something I don't. The passage of time in the Deadpool issues seems to be longer than the passage in Secret Invasion proper. Do you have suggestions for new placements for DP entries?

I've incorporated your other suggestions into my master copy and will repost after a number of other suggestions have come in.

BTW, I've been using SECINV as a code for SECRET INVASION, figuring "SI" might well end up describing something else. Should "SEC" be our standard abbreviation for "SECRET," so SECWAR, SECDEF, etc?

I think the "24 hours" in DP4 2 will have to give way - Osborn is meant to have used the data he nicked from DP in shooting Veranke. The DP/Tbolts crossover is DP's reaction to Osborn nicking and using his data to become "the hero" and get himself installed in Stark's old job - he's aiming to invoice Norman for services rendered, and the plot goes from there.

[Side note of limited chronological significance - Andy Diggle, the Tbolts writer, seems to be under the impression the "outgoing president" appointed Osborn, and the "new president" is not entirely on-board with it. Which, of course, isn't on-track with the colouring used in SI 8.]

I've been using "SI" because (a) it's shorter; (b) it's not taken already; (c) "INV" is for Invaders (& this definitely wasn't an Invaders series) and (d) we all know Russ isn't going to recode anything that's already in the Key if he can at all help it, and not all uses of "Secret" are coded as "SEC" :) (M/SHSW and SWII are both Secret=S)

Ah, I see. So Norman's big Veranke-killing gun was due to the stolen data Wade was sending to Fury. If that's the case, then the passage of time in DP4 1-3 is definitely messed up; it appears to occur over the course of a few days when, in actuality, it must occur over a few hours on invasion day, and the scenes that Wade is watching in DP4 4-FB (2-3) may actually be live (one shot is from the last two pages of SI 6.

So I'm moving and compressing the entries for DP4 1-4. So now Fury appears in DP4 2 (18-23) and DP4 3 while he's at his safehouse, between SI 5 (4-24) and A:INIT 17. Osborn appears in DP4 3 between pages 2 and 3 of TB 123, after the Mar-Vell Skrull leaves and before he dons his battle armor to fight Skrulls. That certainly makes more sense. Thanks, Somebody.

Still waiting for more feedback before posting an update.

Corrected version of the IIM 8 synopsis - note that it's not files that were destroyed per se, it's the systems that held and ran them. Also, the Extremis stuff is plot-critical enough that it should be mentioned.
INVINCIBLE IRON MAN #8
One day. This story must occur after MA 20 (15-22) and perhaps before SECINV:DR 1 (1-7) [See query below]. Iron Man tries to help a construction crew with cleaning up after the Skrull invasion, but the Skrull virus has reversed the Extremis modifications to his body, and without them, he can barely control his Extremis armour, the armour's systems crash and he crashes into the river. Stark upgrades Pepper’s repulsomatic technology. Maria Hill empties out her desk on her last day with SHIELD while Stark meets with Norman Osborn to check out of the agency. After Stark and Hill leave, Osborn illegally tries to tap into the Superhero Registration database, which triggers a virus that destroys Osborn’s HAMMER servers. Osborn declares war on Stark. Stark tells Maria and Pepper that the real registration database was never in the HAMMER servers - the only copy was uploaded into his brain.
I don't see why it must occur before SI:DR, by the way. Could you explain that one to me?

I'm also wondering if SI 8 (22:1) must take place between TB 126 (1-9) and TB 126 (10-22) - Osborn says he has a meeting with the President in that first segment of TB 126. He then goes to it in SI 8 (22:1). He then does some plotting and calls Moonstone to start the "house cleaning" he'd arranged beforehand - any earlier, and Moonstone can't bribe Bullseye with the Dark Avengers spot she whispers in his ear in TB 127 (11:5) [Check the Dark Avengers #3 cover - one of them, anyway - if it's not already obvious by this point].

I figured that IIM 8 ushered out the old (Stark) and SI:DR ushered in a new order, so it made sense to me to put IIM 8 before SI:DR. It doesn't necessarily have to be that way, hence the "perhaps."

Okay, so something Paul will find interesting about the Ms Marvel writer's apparent idea of the SI timeframe:
Brian Reed, [url=http://bit.ly/JxTF]http://bit.ly/JxTF[/url] wrote:She fights the Skrulls in Manhattan, but then we don't see her for awhile, right?

BR: Yeah. The end of my issues is only the end of the first day of the invasion. The invasion goes on for around 72 hours. And then she's back in the Central Park fight.
[NB: That link, and indeed the rest of the answer I quoted, contains apparent MAJOR SPOILERS for future issues of Ms. Marvel. If you don't want spoiled (and it's the sort of spoiler that doesn't usually get blown in an interview, making me think it's not entirely truthful), don't click.]

Thanks, Somebody, for the typo corrections, although "rendezvouses" is correct, believe it or not.

Regarding the 3-day length of the invasion, as you can see I have it occurring over the course of two days. If someone would like to take all these notes and propose a 3-day layout that works, I'd be interested and grateful.

Although I'm hesitant to voluntarily insert myself into a grammar/usage disagreement, I think Somebody is right on this one.

"Rendezvouses" would be the third person singular form of the verb, but in this sentence it's the plural, "strike forces."

I/you rendezvous
He/she/it rendezvouses
We/you/they rendezvous
