Warning: If you haven't seen the second episode of Marvel Studios' Secret Invasion, this article contains MAJOR SPOILERS so read at your own risk!

I think we can all agree that the entire premise of Secret Invasion is already quite terrifying but it turns out, Skrulls in their regular form aren't the only ones threatening the planet.

The second episode of the Phase Five series just planted the seeds for the arrival of a greater and more menacing force — the Super-Skrulls and how the Marvel Cinematic Universe brings them to the fold will make your respective jaws drop.

Turns out, Gravik, the leader of the Skrull resistance against humans has been planning the creation of the formidable creature and he already has the secret formula for it to come to fruition.

As G'iah was exploring the Skrull Council's database, she stumbled upon classified information, including every Skrull's DNA and shockingly, “harvest DNA samples” from Groot, Cull Obsidian, a Frost Beast, and Extremis.

Gravik would then enter the scene but fortunately for G'iah, she was able to close the database before he got extra suspicious.

While the episode doesn't exactly confirm what the DNA samples are for, it doesn't take a genius to connect the dots and come to the conclusion that it's all part of Gravik's grand scheme to create a Super-Skrull and chances are, he'll be the first of many superpowered Skrulls who will wreak havoc on Earth.

The second episode of Marvel Studios' Secret Invasion is now streaming on Disney+.
