Who are the MCU characters we should pay attention to in Marvel’s Secret Invasion?

There were so many announcements during Disney’s Investors Day – many of which came from Marvel Studios news. We had teases for Spider-Man 3, Black Widow and Thor: Love and Thunder, Loki’s trailer was finally released (and it may have shown that Natasha Romanoff is still alive!) and we finally had confirmation that the Fantastic Four are coming to the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

This is only the beginning. One announcement that deserves recognition is the reveal that we’re getting a Marvel’s Secret Invasion series on Disney Plus.

For anyone unaware, Secret Invasion was a Marvel Comics event that was teased for years and now we’re going to see a live-action adaptation in the MCU.

Marvel’s Secret Invasion was one of the longest series ever. Not the actual mini-series but the lead up to it was longer than readers knew (we eventually found out that it started way before the Avengers Mansion was destroyed). If Marvel Studios is going to adapt this properly, a TV series was the only way to go. How else are we going to learn how and why the Skrulls invaded earth? A program gives us that and so many other smaller details.

Maybe the most important part is which characters the Skrulls replaced? Who are they going to attempt to take off the board permanently? Who are their biggest threats and how will they neutralize them? Coming up, we have 10 characters that are going to be important in the Skrulls plans.
