    That was one of the weird parts of Secret Invasion. The FF has had Skrull detecting technology since at least the time of Lyja. If I recall, her refusal to let Reed scan her is one of the things that ultimately led to her being outed.

    Too bad Reed never shared the tech, alas.

    she's a hybrid with powers that block that detection. that's how evolution works in the marvel universe.

    Yeah. I wasn't really clear on how the Skrulls weren't detected in the first place as I could have sworn that Reed has developed stuff to detect them before. Maybe I missed something? Did the Skrulls find a way to beat Reed's methods?

    in SI the Skrulls ability to replace people was enhanced with magic, even dr strange couldn't detect them

    they had the same brain patterns as the people they replaced and their dna matched,

    Read the actual books it helps.

    Yes, they were specifically undetectable to Reed's old scanners, and telepathy, and magic, etc. Reed had to come up with a new technology to reveal their true forms at the tail end of Secret Invasion; had his old scanners worked still, that would never have been a plot point.

    Don't feel bad. I remembered that the Skrulls were undetectable, but forgot why exactly. I must have missed the issue with the MAGIC explanation.

    Nah, she's the next Phoenix. When Bendis takes over the X-books he's bringing the Luke Cage-Jessica Jones family drama with him. Every other issue will involve Luke Cage getting worked up over villain after villain threatening his family while Colossus, Cyclops and Co. eat Chinese take out in the background. You're gonna love it.

    So you mean business as usual? *Ba-dump-chah*

    It was Reed to made the Skrull undetectable.
    It was in one of those NA tie-ins, i guess?
    They cloned him and kept making the clone come up with ways to help them.
    So, essentially, Reed beat himself.
