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.
