    After watching the extended preview, I'm guessing the answer to my question is yes.

    I don't know what other Marvel character he could be, unless they've given Joss carte blanche to create his own superhero.

    I hope hope this is good. Been wanting a sci-fi show worthy of live viewing since Heroes.

    What does S.H.I.E.L.D. mean to you?

    ha ha ha... the trailer is already full of Joss-y goodness.

    My guess is that the super powered folks will mostly be new creations. They would do that to avoid copyright battles with all the various studios that hold the rights to all the various characters. Easier to just create your own and then you can do whatever you like with them.

    The only characters who other studios have now are Spidey, the FF, and the X-Men (none of whom would be wasted in a SHIELD TV show anyway). And if it were easier just to create their own, they would have done it in the comics, where the last seriously successful character created was, what, Wolverine? 1974?

    Nah, if they're going to use super-heroes (I haven't seen the trailer yet), then they'll plunder Marvel's vast catalog. They'd be fools not to.

    More than likely the C List. Doubt we will see any heavy hitters.

    I'd love to see them use the Crimson Dynamo.

    Are we limiting that to only Marvel? Because I think a case could be made for Wolfman-Perez Teen Titans in 1982. Or, you know, Watchmen in 1986.

    Still a very long time. Remember when Nova was going to be "The next Spider-Man"? You just can't force that.

    This kind of reminds me of Heroes but you know it probably won't suck. :D

    I wouldn't be surprised if it's more "Man from U.N.C.L.E" than Heroes, since it's about a super-spy organization. I suspect the super stuff will be incidental and ancillary, to keep costs down.

    But I also would bet on references, and how ordinary humans deal with living in a world with Thunder Gods and Hulks.

    They can use Dr. Strange, Daredevil, Black Panther, Hercules, the Inhumans, Ant-Man, the Vision, Wonder Man, Iron Fist. Also, there's no reason Hawkeye or the Black Widow couldn't show up if Jeremy Renner or Scar-Jo aren't busy. (They'd probably save those for Big-Event episodes.)

    I wonder if Hydra and/or AIM will be the opposition. But don't expect them to wear those green crepe uniforms (Hydra) or the yellow jumpsuits with hat-box helmets (AIM). :D

    Dr. Strange, the Panther, Ant Man, and Iron Fist all have movies in various stages of planning, so they would be out. And I assume now that they have Daredevil back, they wouldn't waste him on a TV show. I doubt very much the show's budget could handle even guest appearances by any of the existing movie characters.

    I know that Marvel doesn't own the X-Men films and TV, but can they use the X-Men plot of mutants popping up everywhere? It seems like a good springboard for the Mutant-of-the-Week setting.
