Have “The Avengers” Villains Been Revealed?

Pointing to some grainy footage from the new teaser trailer for the official trailer, Comic Book Movie offers a theory:

“There is however, a being and a race created by said being, that does seem to fit everything we have seen or heard about this film. The High Evolutionary and his “New Men” or “Knights of Wundagore” (who are not aliens/differ greatly in appearance from each other/utilize unusual armor and strange sword and spear like weapons) seem to fit the news, rumors and speculation we’ve all read about over the course of the last year. He is an incredibly powerful individual who has been at odds with The Avengers (as well as almost every other Marvel hero) many times over the years. He has strong ties to most of Marvels “cosmic” characters (especially Warlock and The Inhumans). He has been in possession of the Infinity gems (he is the being who originally gave Warlock the Soul Gem). He has clashed with THOR many times (this could explain the existence of The Infinity Gauntlet in Odin’s vault).

Now we get to the thing that placed me on this train of thought. As I stated earlier, there have been reports that the aliens in the film differed in appearance from each other and wear strange armor to go along with photo’s that show them using swords and spear like weapons. Yesterday, we finally got our first look at these aliens using some sort of flying cycles. That is where the connection came in and everything else seemed to fit. The High Evolutionary’s self created army, “The New Men” or “Knights of Wundagore” ride Atomic Steeds that seem to be an identical match for the flying crafts we viewed in yesterday’s teaser.”
