I forgot to post the Bleeding Cool article about the Marcus Johnston stuff, Here it is:
TurtleTrekker mentioned what is going on with Nick right now...post AVX though things might change. *Shrugs*. I really don't care either way. I didn't pick up Battle Scars but not willing to write off this Johnston character yet. Will make my opinion known after he starts appearing and interacting with the rest of the Marvel U.
Most important thing though: Agent Coulson is in 616! WOOT! It was really only a matter of time.
