This is coolbert:

"Threat: The Home Secretary in the fictitious cabinet is also an alien"
England is under attack. By an alien force. Evil doers who can impersonate a human. These are the Skrull. Green-skinned extraterrestrials [lizards?] who have intentions toward the human race that are not benign!! [this theme is taken from an episode of Dr. Who??]
"YIKES! The dashing Prime Minister discovers that three members of his Cabinet are really aliens in disguise."
Prime Minister Gordon Brown enlists the help of the Super Heroes, to include Captain Britain.
A comic book of course. A comic book in the same league as the graphic novel, of which I am so fond!! And I must add, very well done too.
There is of course going to be controversy over this comic. An alien invasion of England? Foreign element posing as native citizens! With evil intentions. I just know someone is going to read something into all this. Devoted readers to my blog can guess with a high degree of certainty what I am thinking of here?
A parallel type of graphic novel comic had a similar theme in World War Two [WW2]!
The trio of "Captain America", "The Submariner" [Prince Namor] and "The Human Torch" battled the forces of fascism and did so with panache'. These three comprise the "Invaders". [good guys]
* Captain America.
"Captain America was the alter ego of Steve Rogers, a sickly young man who was enhanced to the peak of human perfection by an experimental serum in order to aid the United States war effort. Captain America wears a costume that utilizes an American flag motif, and is armed with an indestructible shield that can be thrown as a weapon."
"An intentionally patriotic creation who was often depicted fighting the Axis powers of World War II"
* The Submariner.
"When World War II broke out Namor put aside his differences with the surface world and fought alongside the team of Allied heroes that called themselves the Invaders"
"a history of having fought with the Allies during World War II in the superhero team the Invaders."
"Alastaire, situation please!!"
The British government is trying to condition English youth that there is an alien invasion occurring right now, as we speak? An invasion that must be countered, by all means, fair or foul?
Some will see this!!
"Thwaack", "bam", "aaarghh", "grrrr"
