Pretty sad when the most interesting looking character is a middle aged guy in a suit.
Well, that's Clark Gregg's specialty -- making the ordinary guy the most interesting person in the room.

I bet the asian girl knows martial arts. The girl in the sneakers is probably into computers.
Which "Asian girl?" There's the Macau-born Ming-Na Wen -- who's 49 years old, hardly a "girl" -- and the Chinese-American Chloe Bennet (nee Wang). Ms. Wen's character Melinda May has been described in some sources as knowing martial arts, but she's described elsewhere as an "ace pilot and weapons expert" (and let's face it, knowing martial arts is hardly unprecedented for Whedon heroines). Ms. Bennet's character Skye (the one on the far left, in boots) is the computer hacker. The woman in sneakers is Elizabeth Henstridge, whose character is Jemma Simmons, a "genius biochemist."
