Re: Joss Whedon's S.H.I.E.L.D to ABC!
Also, Ms./Captain Marvel is a Superman-level character power-wise, so it'd be hard to do her justice on a TV budget, and I wouldn't want to see her powers toned down. I'm hoping she'll show up in the movies, but I'm pretty sure a SHIELD TV series would deliberately focus on more normal, human characters. (Which is why I'm thinking Mockingbird for the female lead.)
She's not that powerful and she's not Binary anymore of course she's not a SHIELD agent anymore either.
