Avengers, Chitauri, and David Icke – Illuminati Symbolism

I haven’t seen The Avengers, but in my normal traversing of the internet I came across an article on Henry Makow (http://www.henrymakow.com/aspen_avengers.html) that talks on the film and its Illuminati symbolism. The article claims that the Hulk is representative of the Illuminati somehow, and it goes on through some fairly weak comparisons, in my opinion. But there is something of note that sticks out. The film features an alien race called “The Chitauri.”

Makow explains the Chitauri as follows:

Who are the “Chitauri”?

“Tauri” is a term meaning “Earth Human”, used in the extremely popular and decade-long sci-fi series Stargate SG-1 (also Stargate: Atlantis). “Chi” is the English (Hanyu-Pinyin) transliteration of the Mandarin word meaning “to eat or devour”. The Chitauri, enemies of total freedom, aim to devour Humanity by removing Will from the species.

This is an interesting definition, but I’ve read about the Chitauri in David Icke’s Human Race Get Off Your Knees book. The Chitauri were described to Icke in 1998 (by Zulu shaman Credo Mutwa) as shape shifting reptilians in ancient legends. Mutwa says the term Chitauri translates as ‘children of the serpent’ which makes more sense than Makow’s definition. Another definition includes ‘dictators.’ Mutwa said that the knowledge of the shape shifters was common in Africa until the Illuminati European bloodlines infiltrated and targeted the shamans so they could destroy the truth.

I find it interesting that they changed the name of the alien race in the movie from what it was in the comics (Skrulls). The Skrull were a race of genetically modified beings, manipulated by “celestial beings” (aliens). The Chitauri make their first appearance in a comic series called The Ultimates in 2002 and are characterized as shape shifting reptilian beings who try to take over the world. Here is an excerpt of a description of them on their Wiki page:

The next attempt at conquest was more subtle (at first), involving long-term methods of manipulation such as will-inhibiting drugs in many nations’ water supplies, influencing the media, and R.F.I.D. (radio-frequency identification) microchips to be implanted in schoolchildren, among other means.

Here’s what I’d like to know; did Icke discuss the Chitauri before The Ultimates comic book came out? Or was someone in the comic world privy to this kind of knowledge already and trying to warn us? I’ll have to dig through my older Icke books but either way, the fact that they feature them in the film intrigues me.

Here’s a video of Credo discussing the Chitauri from the Icke DVD: The Reptilian Agenda:

    Thank you for this. I’m Aspen and I wrote the Avengers article that was published by Makow and myself. I wrote it. Makow didn’t “explain” anything, in this article. It was by me. In fact, Makow expressed doubt.

    I mentioned the Skrulls in my original draft. It was edited out, by Makow or by me, I don’t recall. Probably me.

    Name selection in TV and film production focuses exclusively on resonance. At this time, keep in mind that the Chinese market is hot. It won’t stay hot, but it’s hot now. Also, the number of Western (mainly American and French) Sci-Fi fans who have been devotees of the Stargate series are legion.

    With respect to the Chinese: the producers of “Avengers” knew that their product would reach the Chinese audience, and so they chose a name that would contain Chinese phonetic particles. Examples might include “chi dao re”, “che tai ru”, or what have you. It needed to be something they could recognize. “Skrulls” would be like saying “apgoeiht”. Random sounds. The so-called “illuminati” don’t deal in random sounds. They don’t deal in random anything.

    With respect to Western audiences:

    There was a time when Names mattered. Not anymore. Names are assigned randomly; Black Americans make up names for their children. White Americans go for what’s trendy. I personally heard a report of an Afro-American woman who heard the word “placenta” while giving birth and wanted to use that word as the name of her daughter.

    I have a list of insane Chinese-Anglo names of former students that includes Wiwi, Kaka, Ephil (??), Bordy, Sammel, Noddy, Eason, Vison, Happy, Oceanu, Cherrier, Indian, Shining, Melly, Abby (for a boy), Jill (for a boy), Eldon, Rainy, Miki, Mini, Handsome, and Even. I won’t get into Black American names.

    One of the reasons that the so-called Illuminati have been successful is that they bank on inattention to detail.

    The so-called Illuminati pay attention to detail.

    Get this in your head: Every name is carefully selected. Every word is based on margins.

    Maybe my interpretation wasn’t accurate, but my attention to this and that detail was exactly what is required, in order to understand.

    Take care, “illuminati watcher”.

    Pardon me while I put my “Comic Book Guy” hat on….. ^_^

    Actually, in the first volume of “The Ultimates” (an ‘Alternate Earth’, more ‘realistic’ version of the Avengers, starring a Nick Fury that was intentionally drawn to look like Sam Jackson [but thats another long story ^_^]), the lizard aliens were always referred to as the ‘Chitauri’.

    It was always obvious that they were a stand in for the classic Marvel Universe ‘Skrulls’, and the name sounds cooler in my opinion. Later, in the “Ultimate Fantastic Four”, they mentioned that the Skrulls dislike being called Chitauri, which they see in their language as an insult (like the “N” word, I guess)
