SUPER-SKRULL MAY APPEAR IN THE NEW FF MOVIE

In 2019, fans of CAPTAIN MARVEL [Blu-ray], got a glimpse for the possible direction of the new Fantastic Four movie. In short, the movie is about Kree super-spy Carol Danvers. As she struggles to regain her memories, Carol is caught in a war between the Kree and the shape-shifting Skrulls. Eventually, she becomes Captain Marvel, a galactic superhero. At ScreenRant, Chris Voyage speculates that Super-Skrull would be the perfect villain for the FF’s MCU debut.

In addition, clues have been planted in Spider-Man: Far From Home, about the upcoming Disney+ show Secret Invasion. In fact, it is based on the eponymous comic where Earth is invaded by Skrull spies. Dangerously, the spies use their shape-shifting powers to impersonate Earth’s heroes. For their part, let’s look at the first war between Super-Skrull and the Fantastic Four.

AFTER A PREVIOUS FAILED INVASION, THE EMPEROR SENDS SUPER-SKRULL TO INVADE EARTH

In the fifth quadrant of the Andromeda galaxy, on Tarnax IV, the Skrull Emperor plans to invade Earth. Previously, the Fantastic Four thwarted the Skrull invasion. This time, they are sending the Super-Skrull named Kl’rt. With the powers of the FF, Kl’rt is even stronger than the team combined.

A week later, the Fantastic Four respond to reports of an alien sighting at Times Square. There, Super-Skrull appears and plants the Skrull flag on the ground. Thereby, Kl’rt claims Earth as a Skrull colony. When a mob attacks him, Super-Skrull bats them aside. Soon, the FF battle Super-Skrull but are no match. In the end, the Fantastic Four are forced to flee.

IN A FINAL BATTLE, THE FF IMPRISON SUPER-SKRULL IN A VOLCANO

In the final battle, the Fantastic Four goad Super-Skrull on an abandoned island named Crater Isle. Previously, Reed deduced the source of Kl’rt’s powers. Indeed, he derives his amazing super powers from a homing beacon to the Skrull Throneworld. Quickly, Mister Fantastic constructed a jamming device.

During the battle, the Fantastic Four distract Super-Skrull. Meanwhile, Invisible Girl plants the jamming device. Amazingly, the device deprives Kl’rt access to his super powers. Now powerless, Super-Skrull is knocked into a volcano. To finish him, Human Torch seals the sand over the opening with his flame.
