Introducing the Agents of Joss Whedon’s S.H.I.E.L.D.
The first real details about Joss Whedon’s new Avengers tie-in show have officially been released. We now know the names and descriptions of the series’ main characters, thanks to the folks at TVLine. So, here’s the line-up of agents at the Strategic Homeland Intervention, Enforcement and Logistics Division:
SKYE | This late-20s woman sounds like a dream: fun, smart, caring and confident – with an ability to get the upper hand by using her wit and charm.
AGENT GRANT WARD | Quite the physical specimen and “cool under fire,” he sometimes botches interpersonal relations. He’s a quiet one with a bit of a temper, but he’s the kind of guy that grows on you.
AGENT ALTHEA RICE | Also known as “The Calvary,” this hard-core soldier has crazy skills when it comes to weapons and being a pilot. But her experiences have left her very quiet and a little damaged.
AGENT LEO FITZ and AGENT JEMMA SIMMONS | These two came through training together and still choose to spend most of their time in each other’s company. Their sibling-like relationship is reinforced by their shared nerd tendencies – she deals with biology and chemistry, he’s a whiz at the technical side of weaponry.
The implications of Skye being listed first, could mean we’re looking at another ass kicking female starrer from Whedon, who is possibly most famous for creating Buffy the Vampire Slayer, though chances are Avengers has started to outshine the teenage heroine.
No concrete plot details just yet, but we will be sure to keep you apprised of all things S.H.I.E.L.D. as soon as the details are available.
