Remember the dragon-riding queen, Daenerys Targaryen, from Game of Thrones? The actor who brought her to life, Emilia Clarke, has embarked on a thrilling new journey. This time, she’s trading her mythical beasts for a suite of superpowers, courtesy of the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU).
What’s causing a commotion, however, is that Clarke’s character, G’iah, from the Marvel series Secret Invasion, has overshadowed Brie Larson’s Captain Marvel, emerging as the ‘most powerful being’ in the MCU. The fandom is going wild, and the excitement is palpable.
A Phenomenal Transition from Dragon Queen to Super Skrull
Once known for her symbolic portrayal of Daenerys Targaryen, The Mother of Dragons, in the award-winning series Game Of Thrones, Emilia Clarke’s transition to the MCU is a treat. Her new show Secret Invasion, available on Disney+ Hotstar, has social media buzzing.

The Evolution of a Marvel Powerhouse
What makes G’iah so unique? It’s all down to a vial known as the ‘Harvest.’ This vial contains the genetic abilities and powers of 20 distinctive characters in the MCU, which are integrated into G’iah’s DNA. This unexpected turn of events gives G’iah an incredible range of abilities, from the strength and resilience of Captain America to the cosmic power of Captain Marvel.
Furthermore, G’iah also acquires abilities from other fan-favorite characters, including Drax, Proxima Midnight, Mantis, Korg, Hulk, Valkyrie, Thor Odinson, Gamora, Flora Colossus (Groot), and the Winter Soldier. Not to be left out, some of the MCU’s most notorious supervillains also find their abilities harnessed by G’iah.
These include the likes of Ghost, Corvus Glaive, Thanos, Outrider, Abomination, Cull Obsidian, Ebony Maw, and Frost Beast.
An Electrifying Showdown
Clarke’s character fully embraces her newly acquired powers during an exhilarating face-off against Gravik, a character skillfully portrayed by Kingsley Ben-Adir, in the series climax.
