Does Marvel Toy Fair Recap Video Reveal The Identity Of The Myserious Alien Invaders In THE AVENGERS?
During an interview in a newly released episode of Marvel's web series "The Watcher", a host of the 2012 Toy Fair might have accidentally revealed to us the identity of the secret alien army that Marvel have been keeping tightly under wraps for months.
During a recap of the 2012 Toy Fair that Marvel put together, the man showing off merchandise for The Avengers might let slip the name of Loki's secret army. Possible spoilers, so be warned.
Skip to 3:50 in the video to hear it yourselves:
According to the man, the name of Loki's alien race are the Ord. This may or may not have been a mistake by the person being interviewed here, but after looking into some background it is too much of a coincidence. The Ord were created by Joss Whedon during his Astonishing X-Men run.
Here is some information on them from Marvel's Wiki:
Ord hailed from the Breakworld, a planet home to a warrior culture whose technology allowed them to see partial versions of the future. These "timeshadows" foretold that their planet would be destroyed by a mutant from Earth, most likely a member of the heroic X-Men team. For decades, Ord fought and won in many arena-style battles for the honor of being chosen to travel to Earth with a declaration of war. However, the spy agency S.W.O.R.D. (Sentient Worlds Observation and Response Department), a sub-division of S.H.I.E.L.D. that handles extraterrestrial matters, was able to settle diplomatically with him by offering him a chance to eradicate the mutant gene, while they would seek to identify the mutant that would be responsible for the Breakworld's destruction.
Ord possesses strength much greater than that of a human and is also capable of flight. It is unclear whether these attributes are shared by all members of his race, or if they are the product of alien technology.
Ord is a formidable hand-to-hand combatant, having decades of fighting experience.
Ord wears a suit of body armor. He also wields a circular weapon with barbed blades that he claims can cut through any substance on Earth.
Common Breakworld Weapons.
So what do you guys make of this? Could the Ord be the secret alien army that Loki unleashes on Earth?
