"jimvo99 - If this is like a prequel series, I don't like it. I like Agent Coulson fine, but he died. Bringing him back just to be on TV is lame, in my humble opinion"

Coulson was obviously a SHIELD issued is an LMD - Life Model Decoy. Nick Fury does it all the time. Fury used Coulson to manipulate the Avengers into fighting harder and for a cause. It is classic Nick Fury.

 Shogunn, the reason it matters is because of thoughts like this:

"I like Agent Coulson fine, but he died. Bringing him back just to be on TV is lame, in my humble opinion."

The point I'm making is because people are mad that they're "bringing him back" when he was never really gone.

The other thing is that Joss Whedon is known for killing beloved characters. Tara on Buffy, Fred on Angel, Wash on Firefly/Serenity. "Killing" Coulson was something that fans of Whedo were expecting. NOT having him die plays against type, which is what good writer/directors do: defy expectations. If the TV show hadn't come along, then Whedon would have simply brought him back in Avengers 2 or one of the other films. I think this just works out better.

COULSON WAS A F*CKING LIFE MODEL DECOY.

DON"T KNOW WHAT THAT IS?  GO GOOGLE IT.  DERP DERP DERP DERP.

F*ck, and some of you call your selves comic fans.

All I know is, Coulson's car Lola was being checked in by an air traffic controller.  Me thinks Hellicarrier and Flying Cars.  AWESOME!  This show will make Smallville look like HR Puff N' Stuff.  It'll make Arrow look like Hanso's morning constitutional.  This show will own it like a boss.

Warcry, I'm not saying his death doesn't matter.  I'm saying the thought that "he's dead and dead and he can't ever come back because he's dead" ignores what this universe is.  This universe of Life Model Decoys and inter dimensional beings with inhuman powers.  It is a universe where normal humans not only survive deadly explosions, but are able to harness the energy to have a world of abilities.  What I'm saying despite any appearances otherwise, I'm pretty sure they can think their way around why Phil Coulson is still alive.

 First, Coulson isn't dead. 

Second, I just hope that enough of us watch this show because if it's just us comic book geeks, then ABC willd efinitely cancel this show. Don't believe me? See V, Pushing Daisies and a few others.

Third, this ISN'T a prequel. I guess people just aren't reading the press releases and believing the many news reports that Marvel, Disney, Feige, Whedon and a slew of others have repeatedly given on this subject.

It's a goddamn comic book story!  Is it that hard to accept that he didn't die?

LADIES AND GENTS.... Coulson 'dying' will probably be explored in the TV series. Whedon already knew about the chance at a TV show and dropped the supposed 'death' in the movie. Remember, there have been rumors about this show since BEFORE the Avengers movie came out. Why would Whedon kill off the lead guy in his own TV show? Umm...perhaps because it makes for a good mystery twist?

I still like toying with the idea that Coulson turns out to be The Vision in the Ant Man bonus scene or Avengers 3. This would easily explain why Coulson sat there motionless on the floor with his eyes open.

I'm really pumped at the chance to see cameos by heroes other than the big ones. Luke Cage and Iron Fist for starters! Several others should have cameos, but don't go overboard, Marvel. Learn from all of DC/WB's mistakes in Smallville.

soloshot good catch bud. I was so mesmerized with everything else I didn't catch the runway guy was the one going for the car. Yeah buddy flying cars, I'm guessing they're a very rare commodity and maybe just a couple of the top dogs have one

 "brought back many times by a defibrillator?" - you aren't brought back... once your heart stops, it stops.TV shows lie. Your heart is beating way to fast and out of sync, the shock resets the beat. Anyway... he's not dead. He may have been, they may have even said he was... but he is not dead now. I for one, am very happy to see him back and I am really looking forward to this series. There are 1,000's of good characters to use in this series.
