In this reality, Norman Osborn, who was planning to take control of S.H.I.E.L.D. and government security, encounters a problem. Incredibly, peace was gradually spreading around the Earth. The most incredible example being the Red Skull and Captain America shaking hands on television, and brokering an international peace treaty which was signed by the world powers.

All types of media agree that a New World Order was emerging. Osborn realized that someone was behind it all, which he found disturbing as it wasn't him. The new found desire for peace was not only affecting the superhuman community but also political ideologies, countries, and so on. He brought this to the attention of Tony Stark and was sent on a mission to the Savage Land where an event had occurred which killed nearly every living thing.

He took his government sanctioned team, the Thunderbolts to the Savage Land to investigate the event. Osborn suspected that Stark was using his nano-technology to bring about world peace. They discovered a hidden underground facility guarded by Colossus and Rhino, whom were defeated by the Thunderbolts. Inside they encountered a small army of superhumans (both heroes and criminals), and did battle with them. During the fighting, Osborn released a solution into the air, designed to neutralize any nanotech in their bodies and thereby free them from the control of Stark and S.H.I.E.L.D.

Only to discover that they were all Skrulls, as Queen Veranke explained to him that their success in taking over the Earth was due to him. She had been warned by a cleric that their plan would end in failure and with their deaths, as he had foreseen this in his visions. His counsel to the queen was for the Skrulls to integrate into the human world, shaping events to turn Earth into the utopia that humans had failed to bring about themselves. The cleric said that they could never reveal themselves even after death. Veranke said that Osborn was that cleric, which Osborn refused to accept and committed suicide. He was the sixth clone of the prophet to do so, and another one takes his place. The Skrulls would continue their takeover of Earth, replacing one person at a time, until all were Skrulls.[1]
