io9 has an interesting theory as to whom the mystery superpowered character running around in last night's Marvel: Agent of SHIELD is.  While most fans figured that the character, played by J. August Richards, was Luke Cage, the Marvel title card shown at the beginning of the commercial suggests that he'll be playing Rage, a member of the New Warriors and Avengers.

In the comics, Rage is a 14 year old kid who undergoes a gorwth spurt and superstrength after being exposed to chemicals.  Rage becomes a probationary Avengers member before joining up with the New Warriors.  Honestly, a character like Rage could make a lot of sense for the new series. Unlike Cage, he's a character unlikely to ever be in a Marvel movie, but has plenty of ties and relationships to the Avengers and other Marvel characters that could work on the small screen. 

So who do you think J. August Richards is playing?  Cage or Rage?
