Marvel on TV

x700For superhero fanatics, especially for fans of Marvel/The Avengers, ABC’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D could have been one the best or worst things to happen in the superhero universe.

If Tuesday’s premiere is any indication, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D is filled with endless possibilities to become one a great asset to the Marvel universe.

The show picks up after The Avengers have saved New York from aliens, and the world has been exposed to the other universes that exist.

With the return of Clark Gregg as Agent Coulson (which had me squealing like a little girl), S.H.I.E.L.D is back in action and is looking to protect the world from people who abuse and misuse special powers.

Although the show introduces new characters and technologies, such as the scientific duo of Fitz (Iain De Caestecker) and Simmons (Elizabeth Henstridge) and their robotic Quadcopters, some parts of the show are familiar i.e. Colbie Smulders as Maria Hill from The Avengers and the use of Extremis from Iron Man 3.

The rest of the new cast includes the mysterious and brilliant (just watch her fight scene!) agent Melinda May (Ming-Na Wen), the very talented but extremely mysterious computer hacker Skye (Chloe Bennet), and the arrogant but charming agent Ward (Brett Dalton).

All of the characters have massive potential, and I think they will all shine once the show has time to grow. With Joss Whedon’s brilliance and wit behind the genius (which is why I laughed out loud multiple times), Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D is well on its way to an incredible season.
