Agents of SHIELD: J. August Richard's Character Revealed?

Agents of SHIELD: J. August Richard's Character Revealed?

A website posting an early review of the pilot episode of Agents of SHIELD has allegedly spoiled the identity of the mystery character.

One of the more intriguing bits of Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. is exactly who J. August Richard's superpowered character is.  We know he has some sort of superstrength and he wears street clothes, but little else.  Speculation as to the character's identity has ranged from Luke Cage to Rage

Poptimal, a site we've admittedly never heard of, has a review for the pilot episode of ABC's Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.  In the review, they reveal the name of Richards' character.  Ready for the big reveal?

His name is Michael Peterson. 

Who the hell is Michael Peterson?  Well, in the comics he's the nonpowered best friend of Slapstick, one of the New Warriors.  He's a pretty obscure character, but he does have links back to that Marvel title card featuring New Warriors characters that appeared before the first trailer to the show. 

Now, I have no clue if Poptimal is legit or not, but that doesn't seem to stop anyone these days, so let's run with it and pretend we know who J. August Richards' character is.
