Skrulls Question

WARNING! CONTAINS SPOILERS FOR CAPTAIN MARVEL MOVIE!

Also, if your reply contains spoilers, please mark with the spoiler tag.

Just saw Captain Marvel tonight, and I had a question:

While I have not always been the biggest fan of FF and related media; my entire history with the Marvel universe has always understood the Skrulls as being villains. Did I miss something along the way? When did they become a race we're supposed to sympathize with? Was this done just for the movie?

Even in the game they are portrayed as villains. I feel like I'm missing something here.

    Basically for the same reason that venom was an anti hero in his movie and tony stark made Peter Parker’s suit—just a movie adaptation

    I thought so. It just seemed strange.

    How do you type with spoilers?

    Open bracket, spoiler, closed bracket, type your message, open bracket, slash, spoiler, closed bracket

    [ spoiler ] message [ / spoiler ]

    Without the spaces

    Think that was the older formatting method (using square block quotes), now it uses angle brackets (less than and greater than symbols). But can easily insert it by drop down Paragraph symbol (reverse P) in formatting bar above edit box (Spoiler is bottom option under Heading 1/2, etc).

    < div class="Spoiler" >text< /div >
    Added spaces surrounding brackets to visibly see it without it interpreting it as a spoiler.
    EDIT.. actually guess both ways work, just that the drop down Paragraph formatting will insert using the angle brackets, but you can manually type the square bracket method and wording as well.

    And....
    The way Fury loses his eye is just plain out lazy writing, could have been a much more interesting part of the story if it were from something else (admittedly haven’t read the comics to know whether that was “Canon” or not). And yes, Skrulls seemed to be at odds with how people had been describing them beforehand.

    Actually if you read the comics you'll every understand that the kree are the warlike race who killed the coati first then the skrulls. The skrulls were a diplomatic race. Captain marvel actually portrayed them the correct way. But you have to do alot of digging in the comics to realize this. Quite the masterful move honestly.

    This will help to understand that supposed twist to the story.

    I don’t even want to say anything cause it could definitely be used against me down the road...but just look up some review videos (the more negative ones in general, a few positive ones point it out as well) and you will see the hidden message. That’s all.

    Lol also ^ your link doesn’t work, or my browser is weird

    ok.. I tried using that spoiler thing, but it didn't work.
    The skrulls are still bad guys, and we will probably still see The secret invasion story arc, due to, somehow Talo's daughter becoming ruthless, to the point where she rebels against her father, and then creating the secret invansion arc. Im too lazy to explain this reddit theory, so ill just put the link here.

    i highly think that this could really happen, because its probably the only way that we could get this arc.

    I just want to point out a couple things that are important to remember:

    Every hero is the villain in someone else’s story.

    Every villain is the hero in their own story.

    It may be lazy, but it adds some great humor, especially if you went in to the movie thinking about the big deal they made about how he lost his eye in winter soldier

    thanks @Kabam Vydious ^-^
  • Talos did mention in the movie that the Skrulls have been divided into many factions ever since their home world was destroyed. The ones we saw in CM are only one small group. We’ll probably be seeing more villainous Skrulls in the future
