Have they actually shown Harry in the comics yet.
I know about his daughter, just wondered if He's shown up yet.
Harry himself has not appeared, but Capt April mentions him ("Your father") while talking to Mudd.

As a con man, it would be just like him to assume another name to fool the authorities.

Doesn't seem as far fetched as Khan at this point either.

Was Harry considered to be 'British English' in TOS???
Yes, he had a slight accent. I had the passing idea that Harrison could be "Harri-son = Harry's Son"... but I think that would be sort of lame, would upset the fans, and confuse the general audience (He's who's son? Why should we care?).

Re: Who were the choices for "actually it's one of them"

I'm intrigued by the Talosians idea. Harrison could be a Talosian or be representing them -- An altered human or perception altered Talosian doing their bidding for some Talosian plot. We know that they can cure physical deformities, which is a theme explored in the film trailers. The "behind glass" imagery is conversely reminiscent with scenes from that pilot episode. A Captain Pike connection. Even a screaming Alice Eve fits the bill, is she being mind tortured similarly as they did Vina?

In the Cage, their Talosian planet is in ruins, do they blame Starfleet? Humanity? Or just all other space faring lifeforms... what would you do for family?

They can alter perceptions, and enjoy pitting us "lesser lifeforms" against each other, pushing emotional buttons to reveal humanities true nature. Causing a inner Starfleet conflict would be right up their alley. Maybe Kirk possibly breaking the prime directive brings attention, and perhaps, inspires the powerful Talosians to test the Earth men's hubris as we boldly go further into space. This would be a fabulous concept, to explore Trek's very first adversaries.

I hope it's this.

Probably Robert April dies in the fourth issue of the comics and his son Harrison (serving as an agent in Starfleet) comes to know about his father being alive all these years and how he was helping an endangered race achieve freedom. Harrison holds Starfleet responsible for his father’s death.

Way too much backstory. No way.

Just cover it in a mind meld like before.

A bit too much to cover in a mind meld. Keep in mind they have to make this accessible to someone completely unfamiliar with Star Trek. Nero's backstory was simple enough, he's a Romulan from the future and he's pissed over his home being destoryed.

I just covered it in a few sentences. They did more with Spock's flashback in ST09.

Several tribbles stacked on top of each other in a trenchcoat. One of them is wearing a Sherlock mask, he's the brains of the operation.

Re: Who were the choices for "actually it's one of them"

I think that starfleet kept some superhumans for themselves aka (khan) and decided to unleash them when it was needed !!! Possibly against the Klingons them been a more stronger and phiscal race, humans would not stand a chance and crippling starfleet would be a good opportunity to strike !!! Robert April also holds the key in this film and BC will some how surprise us who he really is. ??? IMO

I still think he is Charlie X for some reason. Sure, he is at a different age but that is not impossible.

Harry Mudd makes a lot of sense. JJ actually wanted to include the character in Trek '09 but couldn't figure out a way to do it.
