TV Line has the scoop that two new S.H.I.E.L.D. agents will be reporting for duty in the shows fourteenth episode. The site reports:

Episode 14 will introduce two recurring characters: an African-American agent who specializes in combat/weapons, and a high-level S.H.I.E.L.D. agent/munitions expert who has past ties to both Coulson and Ward.


Th next episode of Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. is the tenth. That one features the return of Mike Peterson (J. August Richards) who is now a S.H.I.E.L.D. agent (really, didn't he murder someone in cold blood?!). We've also previously seen the debut of Victoria Hand (Saffron Barrows). Will these two new Agents be original creations for the show or will they be based on characters from the pages of Marvel Comics? If its the latter, I know quite a few fans wouldn't mind Clay Quartermain being one of the Agents.

Didn't the boss dude Mike try to kill survive?

Oh wait.. I just remembered I don't care.
CaptainObvious - 12/5/2013, 4:38 PM
Please kill Fitz and Simmons.
Durf - 12/5/2013, 4:41 PM
Yeah the guy he attacked didn't die. So, no he didn't murder anyone in cold blood
ShieldSlinger - 12/5/2013, 4:41 PM
Cancel this stupid show, please.
MrCBM56 - 12/5/2013, 4:41 PM
How were the last episode? Missed it.
CherryBomb - 12/5/2013, 4:41 PM
As long as Simmons stays, then I'm happy.
She's awesome. She's extremely pretty, beautiful and is very smart.
Also, Elizabeth Henstridge has shown her talents in the FZZT episode. She gave a heartbreaking performance
Jollem - 12/5/2013, 4:42 PM
this is some of the best cosplay i have ever seen

CherryBomb - 12/5/2013, 4:43 PM
Yeah, Victoria Hand needs to appear more and definitely be more bad-ass and she needs to wear a nice pencil skirt.
Also, GIVE HER A GIRLFRIEND.
DukeAcureds - 12/5/2013, 4:43 PM
People saying please kill Fitz/Simmons are really annoying.
See how ou feel AFTER you've gotten to know them. It's a brand new hw by people whose track recod is to develop characters slowly and then make us all love every single one of them like they were actually real people.
Besides I love Fitz/Simons, already. The jock guy whose actually a bit of a pussy? Not so much, but whatver. I'll end up loving him.

But really, on a news day like today, this is the best that Disney/Marvel can do?
Really?!
wikwakd - 12/5/2013, 4:43 PM
Same as the last ones.

Shit.
citizenofgotham - 12/5/2013, 4:43 PM
Man, for all the people who bitch about this show: isn't it better to have it on and be mediocre than have no show at all?

The show keeps getting better. If you didn't like the first five episodes, give it another try.
Jhuntdaprodigy - 12/5/2013, 4:44 PM
Hope they aren't shit characters
JerBear - 12/5/2013, 4:44 PM
Haters gonna hate.
DukeAcureds - 12/5/2013, 4:44 PM
CherryBomb@ Yeah, FZZT was where it suddenly turned into a real show, for me. I was left utterly breathless, by the end.
DeadPoolLax - 12/5/2013, 4:44 PM
new creations….. AWFUL!!

bring in some Marvel characters to bring in more viewers… i dont think Marvel realizes it. these little easter eggs to the Marve Cinematic Universe isnt going to cut it. need established marvel characters to make it good.
therealcaptainamerica - 12/5/2013, 4:45 PM
why the hell is this still going...i like marvel but geez...jusrt bring coulson backs in avengers 2 there is no need for a show
Tyrus - 12/5/2013, 4:45 PM
Please tell me this isn't the only Marvel news today or I will laugh. Laugh on. Laugh forever.

Jollem - 12/5/2013, 4:45 PM
this kids pretty pimp, too



so, do kids get issued a smartphone right after they come out of the womb?
JerBear - 12/5/2013, 4:46 PM
@ Mark Julian
Isn't Ward basically Quartermain already?

Also, I think Akela from Eye Spy may be one of those new agents.
batesmotel - 12/5/2013, 4:47 PM
Agents of Shit
CaptainObvious - 12/5/2013, 4:49 PM
@DukeAcureds- I have gotten to know them. They are childish, immature, and they are both living embodiments of what is wrong with this show.

The only episode I liked with them was FZZT, but even that was ruined that cop-out ending.
PeterDarker121 - 12/5/2013, 4:50 PM
@DukeAcreds

I agree. That's the emotional potential of the show so far and it was handled well.

And by the way, keep in mind that Simmons is still infected with the Chitauri virus...Ward is permanently infected with the Asgardian 'Berserker' affect as well.
Theace69 - 12/5/2013, 4:52 PM
Is this the one where they were talking about introducing the Taskmaster? The guy from the Walking Dead that was going to play him?
BatManiac - 12/5/2013, 4:52 PM
Battabing - 12/5/2013, 4:58 PM
Hey, AoS!! See Arrow?

Do dat!
Durf - 12/5/2013, 5:01 PM
There sure are a lot of people who don't care about AOS commenting about it. Guess you really do care
jamesbrando3 - 12/5/2013, 5:02 PM
Maybe the guy that's related to Coulson and Ward is Wards long lost brother Tony Masters AKA Taskmaster???
Tymminator - 12/5/2013, 5:02 PM
I like this show.
Beaner8127 - 12/5/2013, 5:05 PM
@Battabing

I agree!...if you're talking about the liberal use of its comic book source material and over arching stories and not the shit romance and soap opera drama lol
JoeMomma29 - 12/5/2013, 5:08 PM
Wow! Do you not put yourself out on giving us some actual characters with powers etc..... out of the comic books.
Nomis - 12/5/2013, 5:09 PM
Bring in Quartermain and write him like he is in the comics the show will improve.
JoeMomma29 - 12/5/2013, 5:10 PM
@ Nomis.

Agree!
JaySin420 - 12/5/2013, 5:17 PM
Well this is good news, now hopefully they kill off half the team.
patriautism - 12/5/2013, 5:17 PM
Hopefully Ward will become a background character.
Durf - 12/5/2013, 5:18 PM
@Omega: silly me! How could I expect people to not watch something they hate! lol, but seriously these people are ridiculous
Tymminator - 12/5/2013, 5:20 PM
I enjoy the show, but hope to see soon Mockingbird (my dream cast for this is Yvonne Strahovski) and Taskmaster. Also, it would be cool to see USAgent (hell, I would KILL to see US Agent played by Adam Baldwin).
DynamicDynamo - 12/5/2013, 5:20 PM
Where's the source?
DukeAcureds - 12/5/2013, 5:25 PM
Capt.Obvious@ Fair enough. Time will tell, sir. Keep watching. They will get you. They'll get you all. Firefly did.
DukeAcureds - 12/5/2013, 5:26 PM
They've even, kinda got the same archetypes as Firefly. And they fly around on a plane. Anyone notice that?
MercwithMouth - 12/5/2013, 5:32 PM
Awesome news! Loved this show since the beggining, and it's only gotten better. Adding two new members does make things a little crowded, so we might see if Jed is a grim reaper like his brother.
