The final episode of ‘Secret Invasion‘ was released today, and luckily Fury managed to resolve the Skrull issue and save the planet from alien danger once again. The last scenes of the series were much like the beginning of the series, Fury is once again near a space ship ready to depart on yet another mission related to Skrulls, but this time, he is accompanied by his wife, Varra. Due to this, we decided to explore where Fury and Varra are going and what was that talk regarding the peace with the Kree?
Nick Fury and Varra departed for the S.A.B.E.R. space station to negotiate peace with the Kree. Like Kree and Nova Empire, the two empires were stuck in war for thousands of years. The Kree ultimately signed the peace treaty with the Xandarians, and it seems that they are also open to signing one with the Skrulls. After all, Kree can no longer colonize and rule Skrull planet because Skrullos got destroyed decades earlier. In the comics, the Kree and the Skrulls were likewise stuck in perpetual wars, but they have been known to have periods of peace at a time, even working together.
Now that we’ve given you a brief summary of what to expect, it’s time to analyze it in a bit more detail. If you’re interested in more, stay with us and keep reading!
Nick Fury and Varra return to S.A.B.E.R.
Nick Fury was just one of many victims of Thanos’ snap, and a danger to Earth of such magnitude shook Fury’s beliefs to the core, even when everything turned out fine, but not without lasting and terrible consequences and sacrifices, primarily when it comes to the Avengers.
We know that Fury was tasked with overseeing the development of a new space station called S.A.B.E.R. that was exclusively supposed to deal with threats of extraterrestrial origin, and there are plenty of them in the neighborhood.
Thanos was alien, and so were the Kree, who waged several separate wars across thousands of years against intergalactic empires much more powerful than Earth. But the current threat that Fury dealt with in ‘Secret Invasion’ was much closer to home than he could have ever expected.
The Skrulls decided to rise up and attempt to wrestle Earth away from humans because Fury failed to deliver on his promise that he would provide them with a suitable planet if they helped him protect humanity with their shapeshifting powers.
Fury navigated the disaster in his own style without alerting the Avengers and stopping World War III from taking place, and in the last scenes, we see him yet again waiting to be teleported back to the S.A.B.E.R. space station. He has one more thing on the agenda related to Skrulls, and his wife, Varra, will accompany him.
Fury and Varra will negotiate the peace treaty with the Kree
We first met Skrulls while they were hunted across the galaxy by the Kree back in the ‘Captain Marvel’ movie. The war that lasted for hundreds of years eventually culminated with the destruction of Skrullos, leaving Skrulls to be galactic homeless and refugees. They had an unlikely ally on their side. However, a Kree scientist Mar-Vell, figured out that the Kree were to blame for most of the war. Light-Speed Engine was developed in an attempt to transport Skrull survivors far away from the Kree, but the task was unfinished due to Mar-Vell’s early demise.
In the meantime, more of the Kree became aware that Skrulls never presented a drastic threat to them, and the Kree were predominantly aggressors in the war. Fury said to Varra that the possibility of signing a peace treaty with the Kree was on the table and that he needed her to negotiate the process due to her being a vital part of the Skrull community here on Earth. So, Fury and Varra departed for the S.A.B.E.R. to see what kind of peace could be negotiated and whether it would be lasting.
It’s unknown what part this peace will play in the upcoming ‘The Marvels’ movie, but we do know that the Kree will play a significant role in it, as well as Carol Danvers, Kamala Khan, and Monica Rambeau.
Kree and Skrulls were at war in the comics as well, followed by periods of peace
Even though the ‘Secret Invasion’ storyline in the MCU was only loosely based on the story from the comics, some elements remained the same in both versions of the events. In the source material, the Skrulls were at war with the Kree for thousands of years, both military empires looking to expand their borders and subjugate other planets to their rule.
After thousands of years of continuous wars, the Skrulls, just like the Kree, realized that their constant competition was what kickstarted their advancement and led them to become the most powerful empires in the Universe. There have been periods, however, that the Kree and Skrulls have been at peace, even allies, united against common threats. It seems likely that this will repeat in the MCU as well, but if it’s anything like the comics, the peace won’t last for long.
