To all of Earth, we are the alien race you know as Skrulls. We wish to offer a few words to you about recent events. You have so much potential. You have so much to offer. Your future can be bright and without war, poverty, and fear. All you have to do is let us help. We come not as an alien armada. We are not invading your lands as conquerors. We are here to help you. We can cure all that is wasting this world. We bring with us a message, one that can be easily translated into any language. Please share this with your brothers and sisters, for it is a simple message that can help us all in the days to come: EMBRACE CHANGE.

To learn more about our message, please visit There you will find the tools to help create a better tomorrow. You will find the path to Embrace Change.

With those simple words, and the actions that they entail, all can be resolved-- we can finally put an end to aggression, violence, and strife. Remember, He loves you all so very much.

The Skrulls are a displaced race of aliens, whose homeworld has been destroyed, and have come to Earth as part of their prophecy that the Earth is their planet by divine right. With the ability to mimic any human, language, or power, these shape-changers have resources of over 5,000 characteristics, and are focused on utilizing these to bring forward a message of change to those around the world. Areas of emphasis include containing disease, disarmament of all countries, elimination of international debts and poverty, food and shelter for all citizens, and cessation of bigotry and violence. Rooted in their scriptures, theirs is a belief of change and the knowledge that “He” loves you. Their current advances into Earth have been chronicled by Eisner Award-Winning writer Brian Michael Bendis, and rendered by artists Leinil Yu, Mark Morales, and Laura Martin and published by Marvel Comics. Although their actions seem skewed through these Earthling’s lenses, the Skrulls’ strategy is to leverage its message of change in a growing array of opportunities around the world.
