SKU: 13887 Category:


One day, a HYDRA agent known as Connely attacked Jessica Drew and offered her powers back if she would rejoin S.H.I.E.L.D. as a double agent. Knowing Connely would kill her if she said no, Jessica agreed and contacted Nick Fury, who confronted her securely and urged her to accept the offer. He told Jessica that he would feed her limited info until S.H.I.E.L.D. could analyze the HYDRA cell and then use the info to take it down. Jessica’s double-agent status is a cause for a great deal of mistrust between herself and other characters. It is later revealed, however, that the Jessica who had joined the Avengers and was acting as a double-agent under the command of Nick Fury was not Jessica Drew at all, but instead a Skrull imposter. When she went undercover to regain her lost powers, she was ambushed by the Skrulls and replaced by their current Queen Veranke, who took her place in the New Avengers and assumed her role as Fury’s spy, in preparation for the upcoming Invasion. Writer Bendis said he had this planned since New Avengers #1. You can go back to issue #1 and see hints.
