After the shocker from last week, fans are one up on Earth’s Mightiest Heroes as the animated toon Avengers face the doubt the comic book Avengers did a few years ago.

The question: Who can you trust?

The accusations flew fast and furious Sunday morning after Tony Stark met with super-spy Nick Fury and they came to the (correct but -- well) conclusion that there was an inside leak and that one of the Assemblers’ number was a member of the morphing alien race of -- Skrulls!

Ol’ Shellhead, in Stark’s no-nonsense way, confronts his fellow Avengers with the news and, by so doing, plants a seed of doubt in the mind of each (it takes a little longer for the Wasp, natch, lol). The Skrulls could not have done it better themselves!

While I have not been satisfied with all the episodes of this Disney XD animated fare, of late it has really given cosmic seekers like us some great things to digest, like a version of Captain Mar-Vell of the Kree, a DnA-scripted episode where the Avengers meet the Guardians of the Galaxy (including Peter Quill, Rocket Raccoon and Groot – “I am Groot!”) and Skrulls this week.

Add that to last year’s Ronan and Kang appearances and we have quite a Marvel Cosmic collection.

Just too bad the comic book boys (Are you reading this, Mr. Breevort?) don’t know how to follow suit. (Punisher in Space? Really? Really??!!)
