Missssus Kot-Tah was my first dream girl, narrowly winning pole position against Batgirl.

I think it's meant to shed light on is relationship with Garrett...now Garrett fills the spot that his older brother did, persuading him to do bad things. (I might even speculate that Garrett really is his older brother, but that's reaching.)

Re: Agents of SHIELD. Season 1 Discussion Thread

I think if Hydra has been planning and infiltrating for 70 years, they could have created said abusive situation for just that purpose. I think that could explain not only Ward, but Kaminski and Sitwell and a lot of the others interest in such an organization. They were brought up in it and it's natural to them to be there.

First two minutes of the episode:

I'm debating whether I should keep watching these things or save the surprise, but I'm enjoying them too much.

Seems like everything on those two fronts might be moving a little quickly, no?

Re: Agents of SHIELD. Season 1 Discussion Thread

This clip confirms through a line of dialogue the existence of a long-time Marvel character in the MCU.

The line in question comes from Maria Hill, who is on the phone with Pepper Potts...

Pretty much everybody has gotten into a fight with their siblings. Even if it gets to the point where it fits the psychological definition of "abusive," it seldom results in an adult who can coldly shoot multiple people through the head without compunction. That person had to have something wrong with them to begin with. So no matter what kind of backstory they give him at this point, he's never going to be more than a psycho killer.

<<<<<Don't think I didn't enjoy hearing that name drop when I saw the clip earlier this morning!!! Ted Sallis has, like Banner did, already tinkered with recreating the Super Soldier Serum and made him Man-Thing!!!

Yeah, it looks like you can't. Oh well. I'll have to see how quickly it gets on iTunes/Amazon/etc.

I will remain disappointed that he was portrayed as a Hydra agent, but I have to go with flow. However, at least get his name right.
Geez calm down. Not all of us have an encyclopedic knowledge of how names are spelled.
For what it's worth, you're not alone. Joss Whedon is probably the most misspelled name on the internet. One continually sees "Whendon, "Weldon," "Wheedon," etc. And don't get me started on on "Josh" instead of Joss.

I swear, the Babylon-5 guy (whose name I'm not even going to attempt to spell) doesn't get his name mangled as much.
