What if the Heroes Didn’t Return?

Remember the nineties? Here’s a refresher: a lot of Marvel characters sacrificed themselves to destroy Onslaught, and they ended up in a new universe and their series were relaunched as “Heroes Reborn.” Said characters included the Fantastic Four, Dr. Doom, Captain America, Iron Man, and many other Avengers. The relaunches did not last long, and fairly quickly Marvel printed “Heroes Return” to bring all their Reborn characters back into the regular Marvel universe.

In light of recent Marvel events (i.e. New Avengers #31), here’s a very scary, but hopefully highly improbable, idea: those heroes never really returned. The Heroes Return and Onslaught Reborn mini-series make it seem pretty clear that Franklin Richards pulled them out of the Reborn universe, but with a little boy who can reshape reality, how much is ever truly certain? What if the heroes who “returned” were actually Skrulls in disguise, while the real heroes are actually still in the Reborn universe (currently being attacked by Onslaught!)?

It’s a crazy idea, and I don’t believe it myself, but it’s one hell of a Skrull-conspiracy theory…
