A LESBIAN CHARACTER!!?? Seriously? It would be awesome?? Why would you want that? Because you're...perhaps...a....? And I AM NOT HATING! I am concerned. Why does the characters' sexuality have to come into it? Stop "pushing the agenda" please. I'll bet the gay guys here would like a gay character too. Are heteros SO repulsive to you? You know straight people don't go around telling people how straight they are. Why do we all need to hear about it when a person is LGBT? Try to keep your private junk private. Please.

Also: please try to remember that Disney produces this thing and it's intended for family audiences. Alternate sexuality could be considered inappropriate by MANY....and a distraction to plots, etc.

OK, I'm ready: open fire!

This is a reprint! When I saw it I thought this was a cool idea with the show premiering next week and I thought I'd comment. The I read down and saw I already had back in May! 

Oh well, I'll bite again. I already said I want a humourous She-Hulk for pilot spinning. But do you know who would be a really great guest star? David Hasselhoff. I'd love to see the original live action Nick Fury appear as some other character in the show. Maybe even as a semi regular. A liaison from the helicarrier perhaps.

 Nice list...but am I the only one who actually hopes to see the Great Lakes Avengers sometime?  Come on, when Joss Whedon is funny, he's down right hilarious.

 dojen1 - you said "open fire!", but don't worry, I'm making it as friendly fire as possible...lol.  As far as "keeping your junk private", this seems to suggest that you think being LGBT is only about sex.  If it were only about sex, do you think so many people would be fighting for marriage equality?  Doesn't quite compute.  

Second, I think you might be over-estimating Disney's concern with "family" viewing.  There have been many shows in primetime slots over tha past years to have gay and lesbian characters...not to mention, a lot of fundamentalists I know stopped watching Disney altogether once they found out that Disney World has an annual pride week.  Plus, this is a Joss Whedon show, so I think it would be naive to think that no LGBT characters will show up.

Third, I really don't see it being a distraction to plot, I've rarely seen that happen.  Usually when it does happen, it can be blamed on horrible writing.  On Buffy, Willow being a lesbian wasn't distracting to me.  It wasn't distracting to me when Dax fell back in love with one of her past wives on Star Trek: Deep Space Nine.  It wasn't a distraction to me that Inara catered to female clients on Fireflly.

Anyway, just my thoughts and opinions on the subjects you brought up.  I don't really care if they bring in any LGBT characters one way or the other.  Hope you are having a good weekend.

AIM and HYDRA are two seperate organizations, sometimes they teamed up, but mostly they were enemies...

WHAT!?!?  You chose Deathlok instead of Carol Danvers!?!?!  FAIL!!

Also, I seriously doubt that Sharon Carter would show up in Agents of Shield, since she already has a T.V. show that she's in on a regular basis (i.e. Emily VanCamp is in "Revenge").

They should have Hydra for three reasons:  one, it makes sense to give SHIELD an enemy group; two, it allows you to introduce characters such as Strucker; and three, it allows you to have Bob, Agent of Hydra appear, which would create an opportunity for Deadpool to make an appearance.  Because I have given up any hope of a Deadpool movie.


AIM was in Iron Man 3, and I got the impression it was pretty much wiped out, so I don't know how you get it in the show (unless the show is set after Avengers but before Iron Man 3).

 It occurs to me that She Hulk would be fun to have, and a TV show would allow for the time to explain her backstory, or even do a version of her origin story.  And if they could get Mark Ruffalo to put in an appearace it would be perfect:  post-Avengers, Bruce Banner is semi-back in from out of the cold and able to reconnect with his family. Maybe Stark helps him do a covert get together in some isolated place, Jen gets injured, loses a lot of blood, Bruce is the only one who can give her a transfusion, and away we go! 

I'm wondering if having a CGI character done right might be cost prohibitive for a TV show, however.
