The season two premiere of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. is set to kick off in style with an appearance from Crusher Creel, a character better known to comic book fans as the villainous Absorbing Man! Marvel made the news official on their site today, and simultaneously put an end to that recent Kree speculation by unveiling the following image of Generation Kill and Teen Wolf star Brian Patrick Wade in the role. They go on to describe this take on the Absorbing Man with the following: "With his ability to absorb the properties of anything he touches, Creel will put Coulson and his team through their paces when their second season kicks off...but you'll have to wait until then to see how their battle turns out!" The former Wonder Woman actress who will play Mockingbird in the series was also recently revealed, and you can read more about that by clicking here. What do you guys think of this first look at The Absorbing Man? Share your thoughts below...

Awesome , love to see him and another brute fight, like a pummelling by hulk would be awesome

Absorbing man? And these Agents of a division that no longer exists are supposedly going to stop him? This dude is part of the Wrecking Crew. It takes the likes of Hulk and Thor to take this guy down. But then again I don't watch this show and never plan to so no harm, no foul.
kinghulk - 8/21/2014, 12:21 PM
OMG please dont screw this character up. i was hopeing to see absorbing man eventually appear in the films but im happy with this as long as they dont screw him up.
Reasonnnn - 8/21/2014, 12:21 PM
@TheGambitFreak That's where Coulson's seduction techniques come in.
ralfinader - 8/21/2014, 12:22 PM
Was hoping to see this character on the big screen, hope they don't [frick] it up.
MrMartinMarvel - 8/21/2014, 12:22 PM
No bad.


Hopefully we'll get more villains from the comics this season.
TheManFromMars - 8/21/2014, 12:23 PM
Is he Bruce Banner's father?
TheManFromMars - 8/21/2014, 12:23 PM
I kid, I kid.
TheAbomination - 8/21/2014, 12:23 PM
Good to see them adding more source material characters on the show. Hopefully they won't mess him up.
OneBadDay - 8/21/2014, 12:24 PM
How are the AoS supposed to stop this guy?
CaptShipwreck - 8/21/2014, 12:24 PM
Shared universe ... FTW
MCUfan1 - 8/21/2014, 12:25 PM
Bring in The Hulk
ScionStorm - 8/21/2014, 12:26 PM
Awesome. The Absorbing Man.
FerFogs - 8/21/2014, 12:26 PM
Holy shit. If they don't nerf him AoS will never be able to beat him. Unless alien weapon.
Alphadog - 8/21/2014, 12:26 PM
@TheGambitFreakIsBatmanOfCBM He's not part of the Wrecking Crew. And have you seen the weapons Shield had last season when Hydra infiltrated them? They can find something to defeat him.
mctrinket - 8/21/2014, 12:26 PM
Always thought him an underrated baddie.
MCUfan1 - 8/21/2014, 12:26 PM
@Ralfinader Agreed!
Superior - 8/21/2014, 12:28 PM
This is awesome.
Alphadog - 8/21/2014, 12:28 PM
He could also absorb the wrong substance.
thunderforce - 8/21/2014, 12:29 PM
Cool .
TheUnknownX - 8/21/2014, 12:30 PM
But that's not Nick Nolte
yossarian - 8/21/2014, 12:32 PM
When does season 2 start?

Pasto - 8/21/2014, 12:33 PM
I can dig it.
Doopie - 8/21/2014, 12:34 PM
should be fun
Havensent - 8/21/2014, 12:34 PM
Very nice!

lol @ UnknownX

That would be the Absorbing Dad
TheDudeRusty - 8/21/2014, 12:34 PM
Yay Absorbing Man vs the (not) defunct Agents of SHIELD!!! SO EXCITED!!!?!!!
VikingKing - 8/21/2014, 12:35 PM
One of my favorite Hulk villains. KILLER.
GinjaNinja - 8/21/2014, 12:35 PM
YEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I was happy when I saw deathlok. But now, mockingbird? Absorbing man??? KREE??? Next bring on Spider-Woman!!!
nld3 - 8/21/2014, 12:36 PM
Awesome! Finally the real Absorbing Man. I hated Absorbing Dad in the Ang Lee Hulk movie.
Marvel1997 - 8/21/2014, 12:37 PM
SHOUTOUT AND RESPECT To the people who guessed absorbing man over a Kree
Happy11 - 8/21/2014, 12:38 PM
Whoever said he's part of the wrecking crew is wrong!!!!
UltimateNullifier - 8/21/2014, 12:38 PM
That's awesome. I've always thought Absorbing Man (while he has kind of a lazy name) has really cool powers. I wonder if they'll give him a big ball and chain to swing somewhere in the episode as a nod to the comics. And while he has been in a lot of Hulk battles, I always considered him more of a Thor villain.
Alphadog - 8/21/2014, 12:38 PM
@VikingKing I think he's more of a Thor villain.
homodrome - 8/21/2014, 12:39 PM
The only thing that would make this better, is if we get a [frick]ing Ruffalo cameo!
WYLEEJAY - 8/21/2014, 12:39 PM
One of my faves! Hes not Wrecking Crew though. @Gambit.

I wanted to see him in a movie fighting a super hero. Could be cool though. I like this show.
Pasto - 8/21/2014, 12:39 PM
The next question is whose 'N.I.C.K'?
AstonishingArachnid - 8/21/2014, 12:40 PM
Absorbing Man's powers are Asgardian based so I wonder how they're going to explain them. Maybe they'll just make him an escapee from the Icebox or the Cube.
