Agents of SHIELD is back, and everything is all right with the world again. Season 3 of the show was eagerly anticipated and with hopes of possibilities of an unravelling of much more of Marvel Universe. So far, in the last two Seasons, the expense of Marvel Universe has been barely explored, and that is saying something. We know about Kree being out there, so is Deathlok and Sky and her clan. Such an expanse of knowledge, yet this is far from mapping the characters from Marvel Universe. There are so many more characters we have been hoping to see in Agents of SHIELD. Though so far these wishes have come to naught, we continue to sit tightly with our fingers crossed.
This Season is riding on really high expectations after delivering two previously spectacular and gripping seasons. Interestingly the more obscure characters of Marvel Universe would be such a welcome change. So while we were at it, fantasising about all the characters we want to see in Agents of SHIELD, we did manage to compress them in a list. It was a hard process, let us assure you!
10. Robert “Rebel” Ralston
We, the ardent believers and admirers of Nick Fury, have to believe in the people Nick Chooses. Reb, as Robert Rebel Ralston was more popularly known as a member of Nick Fury’s elite commando unit in World War II called Howling Commandos. And it was not just his physical skills that impressed Nick Fury, as Reb went on to become a Senator and predictably one of the closest government allies SHIELD had.
While in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Fury isn’t made out to be as old as being able to direct a unit of Commandoes in World War II, the circumstances i.e. the conflict time period, certainly can be altered to suit the timeline. This way we get to see another of Fury’s prodigy other than Phil Coulson, who himself without a doubt is a brilliant character! And at a point in the plotline of SHIELD where its existence itself is threatened, and it is standing on very thin ice when it comes to the relationship with the US Government, Agents of SHIELD can surely use an ally in the government. And him being Robert Ralston, an EX-SHIELD will be nothing short of blessing!
The bonus would be that while we are at it, we would get a little peek into the mysterious, controversial glimpse of the history of Nick Fury.
9. The Wrecker
Given the details of origins of his power, one might be quite apprehensive about him being incorporated into Agents of SHIELD. But if you were to see beyond his goon like appearance and without his trademark weapons i.e. crowbar or his crew, you would easily see how the Wrecker would fit snugly into the show. He has a very simple attitude and outlook in the world, which seems contradictory to the source of Origin of his power i.e. Loki, this super strong thug might give the villains in season 3, a match for their strength.
Keeping all these very convincing reasons to bring him in, a slight connection to Asgard would bring a different and pleasant touch to the team. After all Asgard is the world that is fascinating to us and always will be!
