The Graviton set to fight the Agents Of SHIELD?

September 20th, 2013 by Marc Comments

We feel rather dirty – and silly – for missing this one.

Marvel released their synopsis for the second episode of Agents of SHIELD a week or so ago:

“The Asset” – When the brilliant scientist, Dr. Franklin Hall, is kidnapped, Agent Coulson and his S.H.I.E.L.D. agents must race against the clock to locate him. Skye is their only way in–pushing the team to their limits when the entire plan turns upside-down.”

And what we missed, or rather I missed, was the mention of Dr Franklin Hall AKA Thr Graviton in the comics (above). Is this one of the Marvel characters to appear in SHIELD? Will we  (hopefully) have a rogues gallery at the end of the series that can be interchanged with The Avengers movies? Wouldn’t that be sweet? Only time will tell…

Thanks to the guys at Flickering Myth



In the comics, Hall is a physicist who becomes the supervillain Graviton, a man able to manipulate gravity after a lab accident.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
