I bailed on the Marvel Universe in the middle of Civil War (after having been a reader since the mid 60s), but this show is great.
You lasted longer than me. I bailed around the whole Spider-Man clone saga and the X-Men Onslaught story. I've only recently started reading Spider-Man again.
Well, the last several years before that were painful; but I tried my best to be loyal and optimistic that things would change.
I actually starting ongoing reading of Marvel right before Civil War (I think New Avengers volume 1 was when I was able to start reading Marvel regularly) and I've continued to this day. Civil War is still my favorite comic event.

As for SHIELD, hopefully tonights episode will be good. So far there has only really been one outright bad episode, but this doesn't look like it will be another one. As long as Ward and Sky don't hog all the screen time, I think it will be a goodf episode.

Re: Agents of SHIELD. Season 1 Discussion Thread

Would Robbie Downy Jr. do a 6 issue arc where he takes over S.H.I.E.L.D.?

And if they can separate Norman Osborn from he Spider-Man rights... Wouldn't it be nice to see how the team on the show deals with working for H.A.M.M.E.R.?

^In the comics, Osborn weeded out all of the Fury loyalists. Our team would have to be rogue operators.

Re: Agents of SHIELD. Season 1 Discussion Thread

Sky could be a baddie who has always thought S.H.I.E.L.D. is evil. Ward might work for whoever is in charge, no matter who is in charge, loyalty to the office, not the person. Coulsen is an LMD, so you just flick a switch and he does what he is told. The Scottish lovers are so far beneath the paygrade of such a shuffle up, that when Osborn, from a scientific background himself, starts to put science first, they feel seduced and happy about the regime change.

The cavalry saves the day.

Hellicarriers fall.

(And if they fall, then hit the water, then they sink.)

Aquacarriers sink.

(Sinking is how they move from one place to another. An unsinkable Aquacarrier would be a problem.)

Starting to see some elements coming together...callbacks to the events in the first couple of episodes, the Extremis angle....

Cute seeing the explosive device from Iron Man.

Still time-shifting but Skye's boyfriend has a terrible sense of wit.

So the Skye angle was genuine...that keeps things interesting.

And yeah, the woman burning to a crisp was a bit much for an 8:00 time slot....

Re: Agents of SHIELD. Season 1 Discussion Thread

This episode started like a Heroes knockoff but turned into something pretty decent. And poor Skye. No more computers. What use is she now? And how long 'til the bracelet comes off? Oh, and Miles is a lucky guy.

Re: Agents of SHIELD. Season 1 Discussion Thread

I'm thinking the bad guy organization has to be AIM. While they were ambiguous last time about what they were messing with (being a mixture of everything but Extremis was the important part), this time seems to be explicitly continuing the experiments with Extremis.

Anyway, fun episode. Chang (not calling him Scorch) worked fairly well, although this is the second time where the guy they were rescuing ends up being the problem. The doctor being burned alive and Coulson and May causing Chang to detonate were both shocking moments. I'm not positive if Skye is still going to be an ongoing "is she a traitor" storyline, but it looks like they could have wrapped it up (which would be a good thing). She still has a secret past, but now it's more solutions oriented. I liked the Girl in the Flower Dress (better than the doctor, although I don't think the doctor needed to be killed off) and I like where the mystery there is building to.

It's funny that I was swerved by the fact that I was sure last week's preview was a swerve because that's what they always do!

Pretty good episode, I really appreciated by the change of pace it seemed to offer. I don't know if that's the characters settling in or the change of locale (or just a better story) but it felt a little different and maybe a little meatier.
