    Character breakdowns for several new characters have apparently been released.

    The first is a character referred to as JACO. A male in his 30s, with an open ethnicity, and a height of 6’4″ or taller, JACO is described as a silent mercenary who has both brains and brawn, who sounds hyper-intelligent when he speaks. Sounds like a combination of Ward and Fitz if you ask us.

    Next up is PAX, a younger male in his 20s, who is a dangerous mercenary like JACO but has a humorous streak to him. Think everyone’s favorite Lance Hunter. Since his departure, his brand of humor has been sorely missing from the team dynamic. PAX could be his replacement.

    BUTTERFLY is the third addition, a female in her 20s, described as unpredictable, aloof, spacey, but nonetheless lethal. Like JACO and PAX, BUTTERFLY is slated to be a recurring guest star throughout the season. The unpredictability trait reminds us of last season’s Ruby (Dove Cameron); calculating, erratic, and distant.

    Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. has never had a shortage of flawed geniuses, be it heroes like Leopold Fitz or baddies like Calvin Zabo, Season 6 will have its own flawed genius with PROFESSOR L, a brilliant teacher in his 60s who has a positive outlook on humanity but at the same time is disgruntled, bitter, and a mess of a person outside. PROFESSOR L will be a recurring guest star as well.

    Lastly, we have an AGENT DAMON, a new SHIELD soldier who is described as being handsome, likable, cool, and funny, but unlike the rest of the characters in this breakdown, and like most SHIELD agents that appear on the show, AGENT DAMON is only slated to appear for one episode.

    Don't know if this is legit, but some major pop culture sites are running with it, so why not. A little healthy speculation can help while away the yearlong wait.

    I was hoping any new characters would be more legit pulls from existing comic counterparts.

    They still could be, a lot of the time they'll use code names in this kind of stuff to hide the fact that they are comics characters.

    Sounds like the first three might be working for the fourth as an adversary team for SHIELD.

    Crazy thought, but if the professor is their leader then this is starting to feel like a bit of an X-Men pastiche.

    Are there any obscure Marvel teams that fit the bill I wonder?

    Not that I know of, but I was thinking the same thing about the X-Men pastiche.

    I wonder who is becoming a nazi this season (its probably Fitz again, or maybe Mack just to spice things up). Or, maybe they'll go to the MCU versiono f an "old man logan" future, where Simmons has had mutant babies with her own cousin and Daisy somehow magically murdered every other SHIELD agent all at once even though it makes no sense. Really, there are so many people to turn into nazis and so many fake alternate futures to waste entire seasons in, that Agents of SHIELd could go on for years at this point.

    Seasons 4 and 5 were the shit. The first three seasons were, well, just mostly shit. Once they killed off Hydra and stopped endlessly building backstory for Ike Perlmutter's Inhumans garbage fire it really took off. I'm all for this show going on for years to come if it continues to follow the examples of the last two seasons. 7-13 episode long mini-seasons filled with great plot twists, likable and compelling characters and epic comicbooky goodness. Basically, everything the first three seasons (again, mostly) weren't.

    Seasons 1-3 were the best, and even then it was periodically shit (everything with fake SHIELD and those pieces of shit Mack and fake Mockingbird were terrible). Season 4 was only good in the Ghost Rider parts. I suppose actual nazis probably loved the other parts of season 4, but I can't imagine anyone, including the people who made it, defending the giant waste of time that was season 5.

    There were no comic book elements in season 5 at all, so don't pretend there was any "comic book goodness". The first three seasons had a lot of comic and MCU elements, and some good characters and stories. Season 4 had a good storyline with ghost rider, and a Nazi storyline that probably made comic writer Nick Spencer inappropriately excited. Season 5 was every "obviously never going to happen future that gets reversed at the end" trope humanly possibly, which is why I didn't bother with it. The show is good when its the Agents of SHIELD doing SHIELD related things, against hYDRA or not. The show hasn't done that since the mid point of season 4, in fact its title is basically a lie at this point. Season 5 was basically a bad episode of Doctor who without the Doctor that lasted for an entire TV season.

    Damn, I just realized I don't think I ever saw the end of last season.

    I'll be honest, towards the end there Deke kinda grew on me. I actually found it very amusing that he was so hopelessly smitten with Daisy and it just flew right over her head, not just because he was really bad at expressing it but also because it wouldn't even occur to her, what with having more important things on her mind and because she went from actively hating him to just barely tolerating him.

    Not the best comparison I know, but it sort of reminded me of the Buffy/Spike dynamic from the pre-soul/chip-in-the-head days.

    Don't get me wrong, I'd rather have Hunter & Bobbie back, but the show does need more of a comic relief type character in the mix and Deke had pretty good chemistry with most everyone he shared significant screen time with.

    Well... at least Deke is more tolerable than Logan Paul.

    Chloe Bennett, you've lost your damn mind

    I never hated Deke. I liked him from the very beginning.
