Agent Everett Ross
Agent Ross is in Moscow to meet with someone named Prescod who believes that all the recent attacks around the globe are caused by Skrulls.
We know Agent Ross from numerous MCU properties including Wakanda Forever, but Prescod is new.
Prescod is not in the comics but he could be a nod to a comic character named Mr. Prescott on Earth-616, a city contractor and an acquaintance reporter Ned Leeds met while investigating a statue outside City Hall that commemorated the Revolutionary War’s Battle of Blood Creek, which in reality never took place.
It could also be a nod to Darrin M. Prescott, who was a second unit director in Captain America: Civil War, Black Panther, Black Widow, and Black Panther: Wakanda Forever. He was also a stunt coordinator in Black Panther and Black Widow and a stunt performer in Captain Marvel.
Ross mentions some events of Captain Marvel, including the fact that 30 years ago Carol Danvers and Nick Fury promised to find the Skrulls a new home so it couldn’t be them causing the attacks across the globe.
Nick Fury is on S.A.B.E.R., the spaceship where we last saw him in Spider-Man: Far From Home.
Attacks and more attacks
On the board in the room where Ross and Prescod meet, there is a note about an attack on Bogota and Munich.
The report Prescod gives Ross says he believes the next attack will be “the big one.” Ross promises to give the report to Nick Fury, but Prescod believes Ross is a Skrull and attacks him.
A sniper takes out Prescod.
Agent Ross calls Maria Hill to extract him. Ross is chased through the streets by Talos, but it turns out Ross IS a Skrull.
Hill picks up Fury to go meet Talos.
We see Talos tending a plant that was planted by his late wife Soren. The plant is Santo Millika aka a Skrull Sky Plant.
Fury asks Talos about Gravik, the newest member of the Skrull Council. Talos reveals the Skrulls are unhappy because they have been helping Fury for nearly 30 years so that he and Carol would keep their promise to find them a new home.
Gravik and his people killed Soren.
Gravik is a brand new villain to the MCU and not based on a comic character. His first appearance is in this episode!
Talos’ daughter G’iah has teamed up with Gravik. We first met G’iah as a young Skrull in Captain Marvel.
In the comics, G’iah was a specialized agent who was picked to breed with fellow agent Klrr, since she originated from a Skrull planet where most of the offspring became Warskrulls.
President Ritson, played by Dermot Mulroney, was first mentioned in Black Panther: Wakanda Forever.
MI6 Agent Sonya Falsworth, played by Olivia Colman, is a new character but has potential comic connections.
In Captain America: The First Avenger, Steve Rogers was working with the Howling Commandos to take on HYDRA during WWII. One of those Howling Commandos was a British Soldier named James Montgomery Falsworth.
In the comics, James Falsworth was also one of three characters to take the moniker Union Jack.
James Falsworth’s daughter Lady Jacqueline “Jac/Jackie” Falsworth Crichton is also known as the superhero Spitfire. Jackie [first seen in “Invaders” #7 (April, 1976)] joined the MI-13 to fight the Skrull invasion in the 2008 Secret Invasion comic book run.
We see G’iah and Gravik use the fracking pods as they used on Carol Danvers in Captain Marvel.
We meet skrull named Beto. In the comics, the only Beto is a Beto who was robbing a store in Queens in “Mosaic” #1 (October, 2016). Beto is shot by Yuri while possessed by Morris Sackett (Sackett was a professional basketball player who at some point encountered the wandering Terrigen Mist circling the Earth and was transformed into an Inhuman via Terrigenesis.
New Skrullus is Skrulls’ safe haven and also a headquarters for the Skrull Resistance led by Gravik.
Vasily Porprishchin is another new character with no known comic origins. He is a Skrull.
In the comics, Pagon has a bit of a convoluted history but ties to Echo, Daredevil, Skrulls, Captain America, Reed Richards, and more.
Echo infiltrated The Hand at the request of Daredevil and Captain America, and the Skrull posing as Elektra captured her. Eventually, it was revealed that the Skrull that replaced Elektra was the male warrior Pagon. Pagon took over the Hand, severing its ties with Hydra.
“Understanding the Human Mind”
G’iah is seen reading “Understanding the Human Mind,” a book that discusses why you shouldn’t trust what your brain is telling you. “Using news stories of logic-defying behavior, analogies to famous fictitious characters, and analysis of evolutionary and cognitive psychology theory, this fascinating account of how the mind works is a must-read for all interested in anthropology and cognitive psychology.”
Talos re-assumes the identity of Agent Teller.
In the comics, Agent Teller is one of the special agents who attempted to protect Mary Jane Watson-Parker from a mad bomber in “Peter Parker: Spider-Man” #12.
We get a flashback to the Blip and the dusting in Infinity War when Fury remembers turning into dust.
Gravik leads a successful attack on Russia during Unity Day, which is a real national celebration on November 4th each year.
“Secret Invasion” Episode 1 is now streaming on Disney+.
