But no.

The big bad is Centipede which is probably something AIM and/or HYDRA related.

Fun fact of the day that I'm sure everyone already knows.

That "mysterious dude" was actually Alexis Denisof aka Wesley from Buffy/Angel. 8)

The show is definitely on an upward swing with every ep.

Utilizing alien tech as story elements (weapons, drugs, viruses, etc.) is a great way to bridge what happened in the Avengers movie while keeping the agency relevant.


On the other hand, dealing with aliens quenches the thirst of viewers getting bored with the "low-level schmuck with powers of the week" trend the series has gotten itself into.

How about the Kree? It'd give the series a more humanoid-looking alien to work with.

I haven't seen Avengers in months...but was the hooded guy adapted into 616 Marvel as Corvus Glaive in Infinity?

Regarding the Skrulls, I take it that means they can use Avengers mash-up Super Skrulls but not the one with the FF's powers?

And random side topic about movie rights, for how many more movies will Sony control Wolverine? I bet Marvel would jump at the chance to add him to the Avengers to piss off the internet :lol:

Fieldy do you mean Spider-man or are you doing a bit? Because Sony and Marvel are actually pretty close to a deal for an expanded universe at this point to include Spidey/Marvelmovieverse together at this point. :smt102

Hmmm, could go somewhere, but what? Those guys don't seem to be shape changers, so nothing like that.

Since they said group mind, maybe she'll be able to tap that in some future story?

Are they? I've never gotten the impression we'd have more than a Daily Bugle cameo in the avengers or stark tower or something in the background of Spider-man.

Anyways I wish Marvel could get those rights away from Sony, the remake was such a bland boring film.

Or Disney could just buy Sony's entertainment division, which would be neater.

EDIT: And by neater I mean as in Saito buying the airline neater.

Maybe she could develop telepathy. Or a side effect of the antiserum could give her some kind of electromagnetic manipulation ability.
