Here's something I don't understand.
Angry Michael was in the train station tossing the gang-bangers around like ragdolls when one of them comes up behind him and smashes a metal pole/club/whateveer directly down on Michael's head which obviously does nothing to Michael ass he is (near?) invulnerable.
Yet a minute later the male SHIELD agent kicks Michael in the back of his leg forcing him to his knees. Then gets Michael in a headlock which somehow subdues him. How would any of that affect an invulnerable man ? Why didn't Michael just reach up and rip off the agents arms ?
Am I incorrectly remembering this, or did I miss a scene or some prior dialogue explaining how this would work ?
I'm just spitballing here, but I suppose that even nigh-invulnerable needs blood to the brain, and as for kicking the back of the leg, that's just mechanical. Anyone could fall for that.
And then of course generic looking Shield guy gets his ass kicked.
I liked this enough to check out episode two. That's about all. I have many of the same problems with it that everyone else seems to.
But...I think it would be nice to include some of the lesser Marvel heroes/villains in the series. Maybe Snipes needs money enough after his little vacation to reprise his role as Blade for this...
And I can't help thinking that a heavily altered version of Elektra: Assassin might be pretty good for this, sans Garner, considering it was all about Elektra messing with Shield.
Hell, maybe Daredevil could show up, again sans Batfleck, now that they've got the rights back, or the Punisher.
