The Mighty Captain Marvel #8 Repeats Scenes From Secret Empire #8

We already looked at how Deadpool and Uncanny Avengers show us what happens after Secret Empire #10, also out today.

The Ultimate Nullifier shield attack, the fail, the subsequent Quasar attack, the success and the destruction of the Chitauri eggs also all follow beat for beat. One might feel a bit cheated reading Mighty Captain Marvel #8 if you had read Secret Empire #8. Though there is one big difference, never mentioned in Secret Empire #8: there's a bit of a plot hole regarding the absence of such a powerful being as Quasar from the rest of the fight from Secret Empire #8.
