Ever since his character was expanded upon after his first appearance in Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., Bill Paxton's John Garrett has become a fan favorite recurring character for many people. While some fans may know him as the character introduced in Frank Miller/Bill Sienkiewicz 1986 miniseries Elektra: Assassin, it wasn't really until he was introduced in the fourteenth episode that fans learned who this guy is.
