    One significant weakness Apocalypse has is that any powerful telepath can get into his head and take him down...Apocalypse is extremely intelligent and has safeguards in place to shield that weakness but Professor X has beaten him before after Apocalypse has been weakened and Phoenix Jean Gray has beaten Apocalypse...The recent movie did no justice to the comics and the Apocalypse story arcs...

    I don't think they should be presented on the same level as the Avengers...The FF are more a family type of bond and its presented that way in the comics, showing much of their family and friendship aspects...If Marvel brings back the FF in the movies they should be secondary to the Avengers, having their own movie arc but with tie in big boss villains with the Avengers and others fighting with them...

    For instance like that FF movie with Galactus, it was so weak, that should have been a whole movie arc, not just a one off villain, Galactus is too powerful to knock off in one movie...Same with Doctor Doom...Doctor Doom fought Odin once but they made him look so weak in the past movies...

    The Fantastic Four had a lot of dealings with the Skrulls, they should do a movie with that match up, given the Skrulls have appeared in Captain Marvel's movie and the Skrulls will be in an upcoming new television series...It could help tie them in with the rest of the Marvel Comics movies...

    I'm reading a Guardians of the Galaxy story arc involving Iron Man and the Avengers...Some powerful species are taking more notice of Earth and are deciding whether or not to take actions to keep Earth in check...

    Here's three pages about those involved in this decision:

    Is Asgard (or even Olympus) supposed to be a protector of Earth? If so, then Earth should be off limits to some extent.

    That's why they invited a representative from Asgard to discuss the problem...

    There's a new Juggernaut comic series running, apparently his suit of armour has the Crimson Bands of Cyttorak devices embedded into it and has the accompanying powers of those devices that Doctor Strange once had, enhancing Juggernaut to a new level of might...

    I've been a little fatigued with Marvel lately, I haven't watched any of the new series on tv nor have I read any Marvel comics lately...Since Zack Snyder's Justice League came out my super hero interests have shifted towards DC somewhat...I've been reading Justice League Dark comics and Constantine comics and rewatching some of the DC animated movies again...

    I only read one comic, “The Immortal Hulk.” This is about as dark as you can get for Hulk. The artwork is over the top, yet I like it.

    I've begun reading the Justice League comic story arc called 'Endless Winter', I like it but I'm only on the 3rd comic of 9, a Superman comic is the third one...This story arc crosses over 7 different comic runs, Justice League, Superman, Aquaman, Flash, Teen Titans, Justice League Dark and Black Adam...Can't wait to get to the Justice League Dark issue, I like that team...

    BTW, Vol.9 will involve the Hulk confronting the Thing. It should be a great story!

    Everything We Know About Marvel's 'Secret Invasion'

    The Marvel Cinematic Universe's next phase so far has been teed up through various Disney+ spinoff series, like The Falcon and The Winter Soldier (focused on Anthony Mackie and Sebastian Stan's titular characters) and WandaVision (Focused on Elizabeth Olsen and Paul Bettany's titular characters). Another well-known character to get the spinoff treatment—and the first major character to star in a series where his character's name isn't in the title (with Loki, Ms. Marvel, Hawkeye, and Moon Knight among others on the way) is Samuel L. Jackson's longtime MCU fixture Nick Fury, in a storyline ripped straight from the comics.

    Secret Invasion is just one of many Phase Four shows and movies Marvel has in the works. The Disney+ series are clearly meant to tide us over until the grand theatrical releases, which will set up new superhero groups like The Eternals, possibly bring together new storylines like Shang-Chi, and expand on existing material like Doctor Strange, Thor and others. Marvel has at least the next three years of content strategically planned out.

    Here's all the news about Marvel's Secret Invasion, all in one place.

    What is Secret Invasion about?

    Based on the Secret Invasion comic storyline from 2008, the Disney+ show will explore a faction of Skrulls, shape-shifting aliens that have been infiltrating Earth for years.

    The show could have a direct tie-in to Captain Marvel, which introduced a Skrull named Talos (played by the great Ben Mendelsohn) and his family, who ask Captain Marvel (revealed to be a rogue Kree alien) to help them find a new home after the Kree-Skrull war. In the 2019 film, the Skrulls garner sympathy. The new series will have to explain how the aliens returned to Earth and managed to gain such a foothold in Earth's society.

    Skrulls also appeared in the final moments of WandaVision, where Monica Rambeau speaks with a Skrull who calls her to space. The connection makes sense, since Monica's mother is Captain Marvel/Carol Danvers' friend Maria Rambeau.

    There's also been some speculation—though purely speculation—that Sharon Carter's about face in The Falcon and the Winter Soldier could be because she's not Sharon Carter at all, but rather a Skrull imposter. That's just a bit of speculation, but we'll have to see.

    How is it different from the comics?

    In the original 2008 comic arc, Skrulls are shape-shifting aliens who have over time replaced various Marvel superheroes as imposters. To defeat the Skrull invasion of Earth, Marvel heroes, including those from the Avengers, the X-Men and the Fantastic Four, must band together to stop the aliens. In the process of the invasion, the Skrulls destroy valuable S.H.I.E.L.D. bases and other buildings.

    Who's in the cast?

    On the Disney+ website, only Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury and Ben Mendelsohn as the Talos, the Skrull from Captain Marvel and Spider-Man: Far From Home, have been cast. But according to Hollywood Reporter, Game of Thrones' Emilia Clarke, The Crown's Olivia Colman, and One Night in Miami's Kingsley Ben-Adir will also star in the show. There's no word yet on what their roles will be.

    Secret Invasion will be written and executive produced by Kyle Bradstreet of Mr. Robot fame. Thomas Bezucha and Ali Selim will direct.

    When will Secret Invasion come out?

    Disney+ announced six episodes for the show. No word yet on when the series is set to debut, or if it will drop weekly or all at once.

    While we are still waiting to hear more, Loki is coming on Disney+ on June 9, and could contain even more clues to what's next. After that, we know that a few more shows are on the way too—Ms. Marvel, What if..., and potentially Hawkeye are all planned for 2021 releases, with She-Hulk and Moon Knight also penciled in for 2022.

    Here's a review of that teaser trailer for the Eternals I watched earlier, I'm not too impressed, seems Marvel's phase 4 isnt going to be nowhere near the greatness of the past ten years...
