I remember reading an article in an issue of Wizard prior to the New Avengers: Illuminati mini-series came out where Brian Michael Bendis discussed the fifth issue of the series dealing with knowledge of the Illuminati coming to light. The issue that came out, instead, helped kick off Secret Invasion by revealing that a Skrull had replaced Black Bolt. Now, four years since that article saw print, the Illuminati stand revealed with new top cop Steve Rogers demanding answers."
