Ever since Disney’s purchase of FOX, fans have been wondering when we’ll get an X-Men appearance in the MCU. And if, on the one hand, we already have some indications of the presence of Namor and Ms. The marvel of the MCU is revealing itself with “mutation,” which still seems to elude us. However, an Easter egg in Secret Invasion seems to indicate that even though it still takes time for the group with X to show up, the truth is that maybe mutants really are among us in the MCU.
In episode 4 of Secret Invasion, a book written by Priscilla Fury called ‘Decoding the Superhuman Gene’ or ‘Decoding the Superhuman Gene’ is found inside Priscilla and Nick Fury’s home. We know that Priscilla is actually a Skrull named Varra, but when she was dying on her death bed from a fatal illness, she took the form and place of Dr. Priscilla Davis with her consent. Although we do not know exactly when the book was written, it is believed that the original Priscilla already had an interest and knowledge of the subject and Varra may have continued her work.
The most curious thing here is that the superhuman gene in the book may refer to the X-gene of the mutant. In Marvel Comics, the X-gene is what causes mutants to develop superhuman abilities that manifest at puberty. It seems likely that the book discusses the X-gene, as so far no other “superhero” has had its powers linked to genetic factors.
The book also states that this topic has been studied and considered in the MCU. At the end of Ms. Marvel’s director Matt Lintz, Bruno Carelli was shocked when he learned of Kamala’s genetic anomaly. The young man realized this only after a second evaluation and may have used Priscilla Davis’s book as the basis for his comments. In the She-Hulk series, we also saw several other “supers” begin to appear in the MCU. And although he wasn’t labeled as such, we had the appearance of many mutants from the comics like Mister. Amar and El Aguila.
It is possible that Priscilla delved into the subject at Grevik’s request to do some research on the X-Gene, possibly as her first attempt at the Super Skrulls upgrade/experience. There is a possibility that extraterrestrial gene research did not live up to Grevik and the Skrulls’ expectations, perhaps leading to the idea of creating “mutant Skrulls”. With this, Priscilla would have released the book so that her research on the gene could be documented and not wasted.
It was revealed that in the matter of creating the Super Skrull, Grevik had to resort to another person named Rosa Dalton (Katie Finneran), who was held captive on New Skrulls while a rogue Skrull took her place to create the hybrid. , had taken form and knowledge. (Perhaps with gene therapy?) The Skrulls form with the DNA of extraterrestrial beings like Groot and Obsidian Kall.
