If G.H. is really a Kree, though, then I still don't understand why GH-325 has resurrection/regeneration properties. Compatibility with Inhumans? Kree clearly aren't immortal beings or anything.

^Actually Ronan did appear to be superstrong and extremely hard to kill. He was able to withstand the power of the Infinity Stone, after all, something few beings were able to do. And while Nebula is a "Luphomoid" in the comics, considering that she was blue-skinned in the movie, it's possible they simplified matters and intended her to be a Kree too. And she demonstrated the ability to regenerate from severe injury, which may be due to Thanos's augmentations but could be partly a native ability.

And it's always possible that their biochemistry could have a different effect in combination with human biochemistry than it does within their own bodies.

I also don't get the impression that they literally pumped their blood from body to body. I thought it had to be harnessed in some fashion.

Although I pointed out that the Ultimates version, Mahr Vehl (whose full name of Geheneris Hala´son Mahr Vehl, which is a plausible explanation for G.H.) has increased healing ability. That being said, I think it's from a suit rather than naturally occurring.

Wow, they're putting out the (potentially Kree) diagram in public advertising.

^You'd think that they'd put Agents of Shield somewhere on that billboard.

Agreed on that point. Granted that Marvel fans are dedicated, but we want to see new kids (of all ages) join the club.

The billboard doesn't exist in isolation. It's one part of a teaser campaign, meant to be mysterious and get people to wonder and ask questions. Later billboards and ads will no doubt reveal more.

Yeah, this kind of "mysterious" viral marketing is the big thing right now, so I'm not surprised they're going that route with AoS. That was practically all ABC did for Lost.

Yeah, I think they specifically said they had to make several attempts at distilling or processing the Guest's fluids before getting a serum that was effective (hence GH-23.)

What's curious is why they were attempting it in the first place? They must have observed some notable tissue regeneration or healing, which mean he/it was most likely alive when they encountered it, which means SHIELD are probably the ones that killed him.

It'd certainly explain the state of the body if they had to practically blow him to pieces to make sure he stays down.

I'm convinced he's still alive, for what it's worth.

Well anything is possible, but for now I'm thinking that while some tissue is alive, the organism itself is effectively dead. As in too damaged to ever fully regenerate and eve if it did, the brain is so far gone that it'd be a mindless vegetable.

Of course that was before the base blew up. Logically those charges would have been placed specifically to make sure that the Guest would be vaporised in the blast.

I felt her appearance here would make sense.
AoU is too crowded plus it gives us possible ties back to Hawkeye or a reason to convince Renner to guest on the show.
Now her Mockingbird may or may not have yet met Clint but we shall soon see.

What can you guys tell me about Adrianne Palicki? Is her casting good or bad?

Certainly, I think he's buried under that mountain, but my strong belief is that he is Mahr Vehl based on the initials G.H. Given that, I find it less likely he would be killed off.

He also has healing powers (as seen through the GH formula) and the ability to phase through walls (in the Ultimate comics). Given that, once he heals fully (now that they've stopped pumping chemicals from him), he can phase through the mountain over him and escape.
