This show looks great and all (definitely my cup of tea), but I am curious about one thing. How involved will Joss be say versus his past shows?
Probably not too much, since he's busy with movies. The day-to-day showrunners will be Jed Whedon, Maurissa Tancharoen, and Jeffrey Bell, though no doubt they'll be reporting to Whedon.

I wouldn't know. But lame comics characters have been redeemed in screen adaptations before -- see Mr. Freeze.
Newsarama ranked him as the seventh worst Avenger of all time. I think that they were being generous.

I hope he's referring to B:TAS.

I am, of course, referring to how B:TAS's Paul Dini took the formerly obscure, lame villain Mr. Freeze and created a new personality and backstory for him that's defined him ever since.

Rage? Well he's a character who can only be improved on...right?

He is a fairly generic, unpopular character. Prime for adaptation because no one will complain about the changes they make. His powers are low-key enough to work on a TV budget too.

Then again, so are Luke Cage's, for what it's worth.

It's scheduled for Tuesdays at 8.00pm. Once Upon a Time in Wonderland drew the short straw for Thursdays at 8.00pm.

It was supposed to be a limited run series anyways. Tuesdays at 8pm isn't the best slot either.

Re: Joss Whedon's S.H.I.E.L.D to ABC!

So assuming, and that usually means trouble, the hunch that Rage is involved could we begin speculating what other characters might appear? Rage is pretty far down a list of priorities so far that to call him a D-lister might be putting it nicely.

Would Machine Man be an easy character to use? Androids have been on TV famously and easily done since, if nothing else, Data. He has been running around as a SHIELD Agent since the Registration Act. Currently seen in Red She Hulk monthly.

I'm not enthralled by Agent Ward's portrayer, and there's not enough of Fitz & Simmons to judge them, but the rest looks good.
