Secret Invasion Confirms SPOILER's Fate and It's Tied to a Major Iron Man Easter Egg


SPOILER WARNING: The following paragraphs contain spoilers for Secret Invasion Episode 4, "Beloved." In the latest episode of Secret Invasion, titled "Beloved," an unexpected twist sheds light on the fate of one of the show's main characters, with a connection that harks back to Iron Man 3. Last week's episode left viewers with the impression that G'iah (Emilia Clarke), the suspected mole within Gravik's (Kingsley Ben-Adir) Skrull organization, met her demise. However, Episode 4 unveils a different outcome, unraveling the true story.

In Episode 4, the narrative revisits the climactic scene from the previous episode, where G'iah is seemingly left for dead outside New Skrullos after being shot by Gravik. To everyone's surprise, G'iah regains consciousness and witnesses her wound healing with a vibrant, fiery red glow. A revealing flashback showcases G'iah's resourcefulness as she had earlier augmented herself with the Extremis nanotechnology, known for its regenerative properties, which was originally introduced in the Marvel Cinematic Universe through Iron Man 3. Intriguingly, this technology also plays a crucial role as one of the four abilities bestowed upon a Super Skrull, which Gravik possesses.

Is G'iah dead in Secret Invasion?

Marvel's Secret Invasion series took an unexpected turn in its fourth episode, debunking the apparent demise of G'iah (Emilia Clarke). The previous episode's conclusion left fans skeptical, and their doubts were proven right. G'iah is alive and kicking, unraveling the mystery surrounding her supposed demise.

However, G'iah's survival doesn't translate to a smooth journey ahead. With her cover blown, she escapes New Skrullos and seeks refuge with her father, Talos (Ben Mendelsohn). Unfortunately, their reunion does not bring immediate harmony as father and daughter find themselves at odds, ultimately choosing separate paths.

What is Extremis?

Extemis was originally created by Warren Ellis and Adi Granov for Marvel Comics in 2004, as part of the Iron Man story arc that bore the same name. This comic book storyline played a significant role in the relaunch of Marvel Comics' Iron Man series and contributed to redefining the character for the modern era. In the comics, Extremis was initially presented as a virus, but when Marvel Studios introduced it into the Marvel Cinematic Universe in Iron Man 3, it was adapted as a serum.

Within the MCU, the Extremis serum was developed by Aldrich Killian (Guy Pearce) and Maya Hansen (Rebecca Hall). This serum utilizes nanotechnology to enhance the human body, granting regenerative healing abilities and the power to generate intense heat.

Extremis, as a technology, is inherently volatile. When administered, a subject's body may react negatively, leading to rejection or instability caused by excessive use. In most cases, these outcomes result in the subject's death.

Interestingly, the lethal complications associated with Extremis have not seemed to pose a problem for the Skrulls, at least not in the instances we've witnessed. It is possible that the Skrulls' unique shapeshifting biology is more adept at containing and utilizing Extremis, or perhaps Gravik's faction has discovered a method to control its effects.
