In the pilot, itís revealed Nick Fury, the ultimate super spy, faked Agent Coulsonís death on purpose to motivate
. Some S.H.I.E.L.D. members were in on it (including, possibly, Maria Hill) but The Avengers were not. Their security clearance wasnít high enough. Coulson was forced to hold his breath as part of the ruse and thatís a point of contention among his colleagues After the fact, Fury moved him to a remote location until things died down, and then he was reinserted into duty at the time of the show
That's just what I expected. And the linked article is wrong to say
"And as he lay there, with that massive wound, he was able to act dead in a way that fooled a lot of smart, observant people." They're forgetting that we never actually saw the medics declare Coulson dead -- we just heard Fury claim they had over the radio. Which is exactly what convinced me that he wasn't dead. (This is why it's important to distinguish between firsthand evidence and hearsay.)
