Is there a time when Joss Whedon sleeps? Better yet, do we care if he ever does? Character details on his new Avengers TV spin off, titled S.H.I.E.L.D., have emerged online. Zap2it had the official character descriptions of 5 new agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. The new series is being co-written by Whedon, his brother Jed, and Maurissa Tancharoen.
Agent Grant Ward: A gruff, anti-social manly man in his early 30s who's great at his job but not so great at getting along with his coworkers. Ward has a strong moral foundation and isn't without his charm.
Skye: A quintessential Whedon woman, Skye is described as "bubbly and goofy" but "also warm, edgy and witty." She's in her late 20s and can more than hold her own in any situation.
Agent Althea Rice (a.k.a. The Cavalry): A strong, silent type, still damaged by harrowing combat duty, Rice is in her late 30s and is both an ace pilot and a weapons expert.
Agent Leo Fitz and Agent Jemma Simmons: A twosome so connected to each other they're known as "Fitz-Simmons." They're in their late 20s but already highly respected agents. Nerdy yet attractive, they bicker like brother and sister. His specialty is weapons, gadgets and cutting edge technology. Hers is life sciences (both human and alien).
Thanks to Chopsaki for the submission.
