The First Secret Invasion: What Happened To The Fourth Skrull?

Yesterday, I asked what had happened to the fourth Skrull from their "first" Secret Invasion back in FF#2. Well, apparently he escaped. He even escaped the notice of the FF. Even Reed Richards didn't notice that only three Skrulls were turned into cows. Pffftt! Some genius he is!

Anyway, Skrull agent no. 4 turned up in the pages of the Avengers during the Kree-Skrull War saga.

What better way than to disguise yourself as a politician. Perks, adoration, women, free food and the chance to destroy some superheroes. Unfortunately, the best laid plans of mice and men (and Skrulls) often go awry.

And there ends the career of the missing Skrull agent from FF#2 back in 1962. You can read all these and more in Avengers: The Kree-Skrull War trade collection. The story was okay. No big shakes, I thought. But Neal Adams put pencil to paper on several issues. That's got to be worth some of your attention, right?

Rascally Roy Thomas wrote it. Rick Jones "spoke" it.
