Didn't he accidentally get himself blown up shortly after getting there? I know there was some kind of explosion.

I wonder another of his brothers, Walter, works for S.W.O.R.D. on some kind of trek through the stars for sentient worlds.

Don't forget the fifth brother, Friedrich Koenig. He's the one who prints the lanyards.

Uh, is Deathlok even using the Centipede implant now? I thought he was pure Cybertek now instead, with Garrett being the weirdo with both cybernetics and Centipede. Raina certainly seemed surprised that he had it with his cybernetics.
The larger wrist implant his uses grafted itself over it. It's still there, though it may be mostly redundant.
Plus in "The Bridge" the upgraded Centipede users had more Centipede implants on their forearms and upper backs. Then in "End of the Beginning" when Peterson debuted with his combined Deathlok/Centipede armor, he had a big orange Centipede thingy on his back. I'm not sure if it's aesthetic or actual since it poses a big target.

In Doctor Who, the one weakness of the Sontarans is a vent in the back of the neck. The Doctor implied once that they were engineered this way so that they would always have to face their enemies in battle and never retreat.

Re: Agents of SHIELD. Season 1 Discussion Thread

Saw the cast of SHIELD this Saturday at Comicpalooza; everyone from the main cast was there except for Fitz and Skye, who were "working" (didn't say where or on what). The actor who played Ward, Brett Dalton, talked about how he didn't know he was Hydra until one day before the script-read, and how he actually teared up about it, since he thought he'd be killed off before the season was over. Ming-Na talked about how the role was supposed to be a black woman, but they decided to cast her instead. The female agent was supposed to be named "Rice," but she pointed out that they would have to change that if they cast her---for obvious reasons.

Clark Gregg said Deathlok/Mike Peterson was his favorite character and that he hoped the Coulson/May relationship would continue to be expanded upon. Elizabeth Henstridge tried to very tactfully answer a teen girl's question about whether Simmons loved Fitz the way Fitz loved Simmons,and J. August Richards, "Mike," just laughed and said, "Oooh, poor Fitz. Sounds like he's in the Friend Zone!"

Stan Lee made a surprise appearance; he just popped in to congratulate everyone on the success of the show, and then asked when his next cameo appearance would be.

They all seemed very nice, especially Clark Gregg, and everyone had a very good time. They got a standing ovation from a very crowded auditorium.

Was her first name Condoleezza?

She might not even know at this point.

Heck, Lee, Kirby, and other Marvel creators were writing themselves into their comics as far back as the '60s -- for instance, Lee and Kirby getting kicked out of Reed and Sue Richards's wedding (a scene homaged in Rise of the Silver Surfer). The running gag was that Marvel Comics actually existed within the Marvel Universe and published comics based on the real adventures of the superheroes (although with some differences from the ones we read, e.g. using a fake secret identity for Spider-Man because they didn't know who he really was).

Althea, as I recall.

Rewatching the series after it's completion is definitely more revealing. They put hints throughout it and it neat noticing them the second time around.
