Well, the Captain Britain and MI:13 bit that ran as part of Secret Invasion is proving pretty damn popular for One Perfect Moments, and here I come with another one. Spoilery as hell, from issue #4



I'm not sure how many people could have their death be the one defining moment, but for John, and in both my opinion and that of his teammates, the way he went out was a complete encapsulation of who he was, both the Skrull himself and the Beatle he'd spent decades being.







I also thought the fact that he remained human even in death (in an earlier page, you can see that only the place where he was shot reverted back to Skrull shape, the way all of him was biologically supposed to) was a nice visual touch to compliment his mindset.

Previous to this series, I had been of an oh no, you embarrassing wankers, skrull Beatles that is so AUGH mindset.

No more!

Good choice.

Wisdom makes me want to punch him in the eye but also intimidates me, so alas I won't be diving into that series for John backstory.. does he do anything particularly nifty in it that I'm missing?

I miss John the Skrull. His was an awesome character concept.

*Sniff sniff* :(

Did he get a Skrull Strawberry Fields Memorial in Central Park?

I would also be super-grateful!

I wasn't at all hesitant about John the Skrull. The fact that there was a Skrull roaming around looking and acting like John Lennon in this comic pleased me the first time I ever heard it. XD

*sigh*
Poor John....even his comic book alter ego didn't get a happy ending. No fair...

It seems like every new team comes with Skrulls now. Hulkling in YA, Xavin in RA, Crusader in the Initiative, and now this guy with Capt Britain.

It would be nice if the teams in question actually kept said Skrulls. I'm getting worried for Teddy.
