The "Mystery Villain" in THE AVENGERS revealed after all?

The "Mystery Villain" in THE AVENGERS revealed after all?

Speculation and debate amongst fans as to who exactly The Avengers will be teaming up against come May is nothing new here at CBM. Is the answer right in front of us?

First of all, I personally would have rather seen a Kree/Skrull set up in this film, but that's not going to happen. And YES, perhaps it is too early for something of that magnitude and blah blah blah. The two major candidates in recent discussions seem to narrow down to The Badoon and the Knights of Wundagore. So if it were my choice between the two I'd probably rather go with the Badoon. However, from what I've seen, the only thing that seems kind of Badoon'ish (if you will) is SOME of the weaponry and the purple blood we've seen splatted all over Cap and Thor..



With that being said, lets move on to why I'm leaning more in the other direction..



1. "WHO EVER SAID THEY WERE ALIENS"



Do you recall the interview when Joss Whedon said: "Who ever said they were aliens" I do.. It was a response in reference to just who/what the police were firing at in the first trailer. It may have been a trickery line, but none the less reminded me that we all knew much less about this film than we'd probably like to admit..



2. REMEMBER WHEN THIS IMAGE WAS REVEALED?



The first initial reaction was interesting. More than a few CMB members stated that, it either looked like or reminded them of Predator..



Now, set that thought aside and take a good look at these fancy out-fits.. Look familiar???





3. EVERYONE'S RIDING A FLYING... SOMETHING..



Just going by what was shown in that teaser's teaser, those somethings could very well be the "Atomic Steeds". These images aren't near quality enough to closely compare but the similarities are undeniable.



Atomic Steeds were created to be used by the Knights of Wundagore for the High Evolutionary. If these are indeed the Steeds we've seen flying around, are they also what we've seen crashed on set in NY?



TRIVIA LINE - (IN THE COMICS) The Avengers were on a mission in Transia when Beast found one and actually used it during that mission. When it was over, the Atomic Steed was taken back to Avengers Mansion and kept in storage.

Down the line their most popular known operators have been the Knights of Wundagore, The Avengers, and the super villain group known as Thunderbolts (which we can all be sure won't be in this film)


What do you think?

THE BADOON.. THE KNIGHTS OF WUNDAGORE.. NEITHER.. OR BOTH..
