Official AGENTS OF S.H.I.E.L.D. Character Badges; Possible Hint At “Rising Tide” Villainy?

Hot off the heels of ABC Network giving the Marvel small-screen adaptation a series order, official character badges have been released identifying each core member of the Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D..

Following ABC Network finally picking up the Joss Whedon-created television series based on the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s peacekeeping organization, official Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. badges have surfaced online, identifying each core member of the elite group and their roles. One character’s identification mentions a “Rising Tide,” which appeared on a mysterious video (with The Incredible Hulk’s Abomination) yesterday that ABC has yanked from the net … hinting at the show’s villains?

Clark Gregg reprises his role of Agent Phil Coulson from Marvel’s feature films as he assembles a small, highly select group of Agents from the worldwide law-enforcement organization known as S.H.I.E.L.D. Together they investigate the new, the strange, and the unknown across the globe, protecting the ordinary from the extraordinary. Coulson’s team consists of Agent Grant Ward (Brett Dalton), highly trained in combat and espionage, Agent Melinda May (Ming-Na Wen) expert pilot and martial artist, Agent Leo Fitz (Iain De Caestecker); brilliant engineer and Agent Jemma Simmons (Elizabeth Henstridge) genius bio-chemist. Joining them on their journey into mystery is new recruit and computer hacker Skye (Chloe Bennet). From Executive Producers Joss Whedon (“Marvel’s The Avengers,” ”Buffy the Vampire Slayer”); Jed Whedon & Maurissa Tancharoen, “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” pilot co-writers (“Dollhouse,” “Dr.Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog”); Jeffrey Bell (“Angel,” “Alias”); and Jeph Loeb (“Smallville”) comes Marvel’s first TV series. “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” is produced by ABC Studios and Marvel Television.

There better be tons of actual SHIELD outfits on this show. Since its in continuity with The Avengers it would only make sense...
TheManFromMars - 5/10/2013, 7:52 PM
Skye Unknown is a cool name
TheManFromMars - 5/10/2013, 7:55 PM
Is "Rising Tide" the codename SHIELD is giving to the new "supers" that are appearing in the world?

Is this suppose to take place before Avengers, or did they undo Coulson's death?
nowtheresaBATman - 5/10/2013, 7:56 PM

TheManFromMars - 5/10/2013, 7:58 PM

there is a character named Skye that appeared in 3 issues of War Machine and was introduced in spider-s tagneld web. I've never read the issue so perhaps someone who has the issues can have a look at it.

She appeared in:

War machine #18, 20, 23
Spider's tangled web #2

She died in issue 23 of war machine

@2Challa you forget this training techniques:

SunfireUrA55 - 5/10/2013, 8:33 PM
They look boring. I'd rather see these agents instead.
DanteSparda - 5/10/2013, 8:35 PM

She along with everyone else is bound to die at one point in the series because its a Whedon show, well everyone except maybe Coulson just because he already "died" once already.

NightForce - 5/10/2013, 8:37 PM
They do look pretty boring ngl.
MitchConner - 5/10/2013, 8:40 PM
Lol.. Rising ride is a code name...of course...ok, I've said too are going to love it though!
JoeMomma29 - 5/10/2013, 8:42 PM
@ Fearless

Yeah it looks boring and I do not see all the excitement over this. I hope this is not some stupid CSI meets X-Files crap. It looks blah to me but to be fair that is how I felt about Arrow when I saw teasers etc.. So I shall reserve my full judgment till I see this.
TheGambitFreak - 5/10/2013, 8:42 PM
For [frick]s sake! Coulson never died, people! Remember, no body = no proof. That's why Cyclops is still alive as well.

It was blatantly obvious as hell Son of Coul didn't die. Whedon has this thing where he likes to kill off characters unexpectedly and violently (See Wash - Serenity), then make damn well sure the body is gone. That, plus the dialogue between Hill and Fury afterwords damn well confirms Coulson never died. If you thought he did, well, you've never read an X-Men comic in your life (Reference to the quintillion times Xavier and everyone else has bit the bullet).

Coulson lives!

JerBear - 5/10/2013, 8:43 PM
Skye is already my favorite character based on everything I've heard (and seen, if you know what I mean <3) about her.
Chewtoy - 5/10/2013, 8:49 PM
"A Rising Tide Lifts All Boats"...

So are they an extremist group looking to regain equality in the face of a changing world of super beings? Is it an ironic use of it, referencing failed trickled-down ideas of benefiting the super-wealthy? I'm looking forward to seeing where they go with that.

TMFM yes very
TheManFromMars - 5/10/2013, 9:17 PM
Okay then.

I shall delete it.
Inhuman - 5/10/2013, 9:18 PM
So the Rising Tide girl is supposed to be a bad guy? Madam Masque?
PenditaMarah - 5/10/2013, 9:21 PM
'Rising tides collabrator?that villain is damn hot.
She should called,"RISING TITS MASTURBATOR'.
IronLantern79 - 5/10/2013, 9:25 PM
FINALLY!! A Marvel Comics TV show. I miss the days of The Incredible Hulk and......umm...Oh yeah Spider-Man...and....yeah.....LETS HEAR IT FOR AGENTS OF S.H.I.E.L.D.!!
GuardianAngel - 5/10/2013, 9:30 PM
WTF. Clark Gregg is 5'9".
Amazing512 - 5/10/2013, 10:06 PM
I am so f***ing ready for this.
LucasMend - 5/10/2013, 10:17 PM
Cool, I just hope this is 13 episodes. more than that can be very exausting for the characters and plotline.
Tymminator - 5/10/2013, 10:26 PM
This show will be great.
Kakarot - 5/10/2013, 10:27 PM
The badges make it look like an ABC sitcom.
Mr123 - 5/10/2013, 11:04 PM
@TheGambitFreak sounds about right.
RaMan - 5/10/2013, 11:47 PM

I saw that too about his height being 6'0"

He is about the same height as RDJr and Ruffalo and they are both 5'9"
