With the way things on ended on Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D last season, it’s no surprise that a new set of characters would be coming into play for the show’s third season. One of the major developments last season was Skye, a.k.a. Daisy “Quake” Johnson, gaining powers and learning about the people out there, the inhumans. With this new found knowledge comes the next chapter, the Secret Warriors. In the comics, the Secret Warriors were created by Nick Fury and is a team of superpowered agents, including Daisy.
So, here are just a few Secret Warriors that could be really interesting additions to Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D season three:
Slingshot (a.k.a Yo-Yo Rodriguez) could potentially be an interesting addition to the team. Recruited by Nick Fury himself, Slingshot runs a superhuman speed and bounces back to the point where she began running. Her backstory also served as a point of interest as in the comic books she eventually loses both of her arms and is fitted with bionic versions. The interaction between the core group of agents and Yo-Yo could definitely be an entertaining dynamic see.
Stonewall (a.k.a Jerry Sledge) gets bailed out of jail by Daisy in the comics, which could be a pretty entertaining scene. Wouldn’t it be fun to maybe get a Skye prison break on S.H.I.E.L.D? Sledge’s abilities include superhuman strength and to increase size and make his skin appear like stone, hence the Stonewall moniker. In the comics, he also helped nurse Slingshot through her arm injuries and produces a powerful reaction in him.
Scorpio’s story has much closer to ties S.H.I.E.L.D than the other suggestions on the list do. Scorpio (whose real name is Mikel) is actually Nick Fury’s illegitimate son in the Secret Warriors. I know that we’ve had a few of these kinds of stories go through the series since pretty much the beginning, but with a character like this, it has the potentially to tie the Marvel Cinematic Universe and the Marvel TV Universe even closer together…not that it really needs any help on that part at this point.
Hellfire, whose real name is James Taylor “JT” James, could be another fun Secret Warriors addition to S.H.I.E.L.D. JT was also recruited by Daisy Johnson and his ability could be where the fun comes in as he has the ability to channel hellfire through a metal chain. In the comics, he eventually gets turned into a double agent (which admittedly has been done before) and is killed by Fury. I mean, there’s definitely some possibility for drama there.
Manifold, a.k.a Eden Fesi, is the last suggestion and possibly the the most fascinating. Manifold was taught under Gateway and has the ability to mold reality and tear open time and space connecting two different places together. Unfortunately, he cannot control it. Granted, it was probably the description of his abilities alone but it could be really entertaining to see the Marvel/ABC series take on time and reality with this character. Sure it would probably be a bit tricky because of the small X-Men connection and the portrayal of such an ability could difficult, but there’s potential in this character’s appearance.
